Here’s my response after watching Jared’s video. (copied from Facebook)
First thing I notice,
it looks like your elbow could be sticking out more than it needs to be especially battling out of a can. You have to esepecially careful playing out of cans since it’s one of the few bunkers that’s completely straight up and down. Most mayans and doritos offer a slight angle so we can get away with our elbow out a little more. You don’t want to give away any small bit otherwise he knows exactly where you’re coming out. Glad you did this at a can though. Probably one of the harder bunkers to battle out of effectively compared to any dorito or mayan. Keep practicing out of the can as this will give you great body awareness, if you stick out your elbow or get lazy with your feet, the other guy should make you pay the price.
Next thing I noticed
is you tended to reload while hiding. Take that opportunity to try and practice reloading when you are battling or have the guy in. Half of it is recognizing that opportunity when you’re low on paint but not too low. I tend to start peppering either side of their bunker then quickly grabbing a pod to fill up. If you wait til you have very little paint, you’ll run out of it in the process of trying to keep them in. The ability to reload multiple times in a battle without ever giving up dominance is huge if you can perfect it.
You also seem to be checking your barrel into or down on most snaps. What I mean by this is, you’re constantly having to guess where to shoot next. When I snap, (And I’m not exhausted) I hold my gun in the exact same position. When I snap out and I’m too low, I move my barrel slightly up. I imagine seeing through my bunker and making the necessary changes to shoot the guy right in the face. If you’re constantly moving your gun around, you have no idea what changes need to be made to make that perfect snap shot. This is tricky to explain so please let me know if this makes sense.
Also be careful of “rolling out”,
I saw little bits of it and you tend to stick your loader out more than you should since your rolling down and out. You need to imagine your gun on a camera slide, it slides out of the bunker and you take a shot, you see where that shot went and make necessary adjustments to get back on target. It’s doing all this at high speed that turns you into a monster in snap battles.
