Flanking is the strategy of coming at the enemy from the side or the back. Flanking is best done when unseen so the opponents can't counter-act your flank. Flanking in Speedball is best done by using the snake, since it travels along the side of the field, thus giving your team the advantage by attacking from multiple directions. If you plan on flanking the other team, don't shoot unless necessary so you don't reveal your position. When your opponent knows your position, the flank becomes much less effective.
