We do that too in airsoft -it's called supressing fire. In airsoft it's usually done by support gunners or assault riflemen and has the objective of making the enemy keep his/her head down, either to slow their advance or make it easier for your teammates to flank them. When doing this your objective isn't to get kills.

What I was referring to is completely different. I was talking about the paintball playing style of seeing your target and firing as much paint as possible in their general direction trying to get a hit. From what I've seen that seems to be the preferred way of playing speedball. Paintballers that try and play airsoft like that generally get hosed real fast because quick, controlled bursts from an airsoft gun are very accurate (compared to what they're used to), and because it pisses everyone else off when they do it lol.
Can't argue that.
