Have a Water Gun Fight
Learn the basics, and some tips, of how do think tactical, and win, in open water combat.
Choose your weapon
No matter how good you are, you need some good firepower. When buying one, make sure to take in to consideration the ease of use factor, such as weight and filling abilities.
Be able to refill efficiently and quickly
Your water supply can't last forever! If you're wearing a Max Infusion or other type of water backpack, this isn't a concern. If not, stay near a hose or pool or something with water. You can take water bottles with you if you want. If worst comes to worst, you can borrow a teammates ammo, but that's usually messy and ineffective.
Blend into your surroundings
Hide in a bush, in a tree, sit behind a door with your eye and nozzle out the mail flap! What ever it takes to camouflage. Try dressing right, such as wearing matching clothing and hats. Hide your face; even subconsciously, an enemy on the prowl can spot a face easily. Squint, peek, cover your mouth with a tissue, stay hidden.
You're less vulnerable as a group. Back to back when out numbered, a semi circle about your base in capture the flag, a hunting party with 3 times the senses, there's safety in numbers.
If you run or cringe, they will exploit your apparent weaknesses, stay calm, dodge at the last second, and most of all, nab your opponents' gun!
