I decided to start a topic on training. Post any ideas you have. Your ideas will be added.What should I do for training?
At this moment we have no information on this.
Nerf sells an automatic trap shooter to practice shooting nerf guns with. You can practice taking tap shots at the disks with a water gun, but you'll have to be careful not to get the launcher too wet. You could also throw/shoot water balloons at the disks. You could record how good you're getting by keeping track of how many disks you hit. Also, if you don't have a trap shooter, you can have someone toss frisbees into the air.
simple target shooting
Just tape a target to a wall and try taking tap shots at it/throwing water balloons at it.
You could try shooting a water gun into a bucket. Progress could be recorded by how full the bucket is.
Attatch a Sham Wow or some other kind of cloth to a wall. Take a certain number of tap shots/water balloon throws at it. Wring it out into a measuring cup to measure how well you did.
Have your team seperate into two groups and have a practice battle.
One on one, level ground, identical weapons, one-hit-kills. This will help you practice aiming and dodging.
You can simulate a moving target by running past a target while taking a shot.
Practice sprinting to improve your speed and dodging.
destroy the target
It's like shooting a target, but the idea is to destroy it. Be sure it's made out of paper.

- Learn to condition yourself to cold. Water is always going to have the "chill" effect if you get hit, so saying you ever get into a Soakfest that doesn't utilise OHK's, and relies on people retreating from sheer unwillingness to fight anymore, you'll need to make sure you can keep going once everyone else is shiverring. Simply soak yourself with a hose and stand there, in the wind. Yes, it'll be awful and freezing, but you'll be a lot more hardy than other people if you repeat this a few times, because you'll know what it's like and what to expect.
- Quick shooting. Find somewhere with plenty of walls and put paper targets at different points, some further away than others. Number them randomly.Then snap from target to target, tap firing, tap pumping.
- Learn the range and effectiveness of your usual Primary Blaster.Seriously. Checking it out on iSoaker.com really isn't enough. Sure you might know that it's 10m normal, 11m at 45 degrees angled, but that doesn't help because in a battle, you don't have a tape measure. Learn what kind of range you can achieve with your gun by what it looks like from your eyes' perspective. Then you'll know instantly in a combat situation whether you can or can't hit something.
- Simple physical workout. Do a jog, a bit of weight lifting, and plenty of sprinting. Do this once a week throughout the summer to reach good fitness.
Don't know of anything else really. You could try just throwing water balloons too, and finding out how you can throw them at maximum range.
