But, can you slide? Plus, the helmet and extra hardware aren't good for bounces.

Just my opinion, but on more than one occasion I've played a scenario without even trying to camouflage myself, sporting a shiny forest green or polished silver "speedball marker" and mowed down seasoned scenario veterans because they often don't know what to do when you're snap-shooting, gunfighting like you train hard (because I did), running, jumping, sliding into bunkers and generally making city fights a living hell for them (and also sneaking and crawling through the brush with far less to snag on bushes).

Again, just an opinion from a guy who started playing back in the first half of the 90's.

I don't slide. I'm defensive. I go to the outskirts and move in to the center. I just run or walk or roll.
I'm an Air cooling Editor, and News Editor, as well as moderator at Overclock.net. I plan to bring here, what we over there call a professional initiative. My news duties consist of reviewing deciding what constitutes as valid information, and if it is indeed "news". For air cooling, I simply moderate the air cooling thread. So desktop cooling, and news. I'll be glad to assist in any way I can.

You don't know what you're missing. Start off with simple gunfighting drills (snap-shooting with the one-ball check-in rule, dodging paint, etc.). When a scenario player (or whole team is better) embraces drills and skills that you normally only see on an airball field, it can totally change the event.
