Not in paitnaball.  In war, snipers are used.

yes...there are snipers in paintball...if u would go back to the roots of paintball then u would know that...the problem is that there are to many people that pick up a paintball gun and go out and start shoting ppl and think that they are players...trust me...they may play the game but they know nothing about its past and how public paintball got started

snipers are real in paintball...the term sniper refers to a style of play that takes a long time to get good at, im not gona say how to become a sniper...ull have to figure it out on your own

Those people were the ones who got ghille suits and waited under a bush to shoot...that was mostly a induvidal sport, now it is teamwork.

I believe the roots of snipers were people that could pick off a small bird called the Snipe. I don't know where I heard that, but if it is true then I guess you're a sniper if you can shoot a small bird with a paintball gun...

 

Note: Don't.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

funny how u say that the oldewr players r snipers, because all the older players on this forum dont believe in snippers, and the newer 1's do.

 and unless u say how u becoime a sniper, you can not say you are one.

otherwise i could say that i am the ruler of china, but i wont tell u why, i just am, so get to work people and fix my wall!!

not too many REAL snipers, the ones with ghillie suits.If you have a ghillie suit and you fire very little shots from afar while remaining hidden-YES if you r stupid and hide in the back shooting loads of paint and callin yourself a sniper, then NO

wow thats big talk coming from someone with less than 20 posts LOL. also I noted that U joined may of this year thats 1 month and now U are being tunnel visioned saying "yes theyre are snipers no matter what" How much of the roots do you know? why dont you right us a nice little history of paintball snipers so I can hear why theyre are some? Because if youve only been playing paintball for a few months I think that would make you then newb....

Why is there always posts about snipers on here, to me its really getting old. But i dont think there are snipers in paintball, you cannot consistently shoot in the exact spot you are aiming for in paintball, nor can you get the distance (unless you use a flatline which has little accuracy. But there are snipers, just not in paintball.
