Way to not look at any other sniper thread. READ one. Just one, that is all I ask. One of the long ones actually.

If you look at what you just said, that make EVERY SINGLE woodsball player a sniper. And if that was the case, then why would we call ANYONE a sniper.

According to your definition, when I shoot deer with my bow, I AM A SNIPER. HECK NO. I am 15 freaking yards away if that. I have sat on the ground looking EYE TO EYE with a deer 7 feet away.

I am not a sniper. You are not a sniper. Nobody in paintball is a sniper. If you play woods and arent shooting from a conceal postition you need to quit paintball this very moment.

You can't have that broad of a defintion.

a lotta people said get a site...but DON'T get a tunnel scope...u won't have side 2 side vision...peeps will b able 2 sneak up on u so easily...if u get a scope...get a sight rail or a red dot sight

I strongly agree with logan. That would make everyone a sniper in woodsball unless you are some sort of Kamikaze

SNIPERS CAN'T POSSIBLY EXIST IN PAINTBALL.

IT'S PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY, AND SCIENTIFICALLY IMPOSSIBLE!

not really ekeebo's definition stated WITHOUT BEING SEEN. if you were behind a bush or log ect. and someone say you that is not sniping. sniping in his definition is hitting someone without anyone knowing were you are

Wait, did Shadowminion say the Flatline won't shoot farther?

And whiteknight, do you really need to be pwned in another sniper thread?

I said it wont shoot appreciably farther , apply the laws of physics here , as in impact energy , it takes a certain amount of energy to break the gelatin casing upon impact , and if the velocitys are the same,or comparable , the the EFFECTIVE range will be the SAME !!

The areodynamics of the flatline will make the ball travel in a roughly straighter line , than a ball without a backspin , but the energy WILL be the same upon impact , no matter spin or not .

I will OWN you on this ,if you care to debate it , you may get a bit more hang time, but not a bit more greater effective range with a flatline .

Face it , the Flat line is a good idea, and has its uses , but the laws of physics demand that once a Projectile leaves the barrel ,it is subject to friction , aerodynamics , and gravity .

If you take ANY projectile , whether it is from a High powered rifle ,or a paintball marker ,it is subject to :

1: Gravity , which falls faster , a pound of feathers , or a pound of lead ? Answer : is the same , except for the friction of the surface area creating drag on the object falling.. You can tell almost exactly when a rifle bullet will hit dirt ,if it is fired from a level position , drop a weight at the instant you fire , when one hits the ground , so will have the other.. All things are subject to gravity.

2 Friction , Heres, the biggie that kills the effectiveness of the flatline . When a projectile is fired from a barrel , it has an initial velocity , weight , and Trajectory . Friction deals with the weight and velocity as it relates to paintball . For the sake of discussion , I will assume all paintballs weigh the same , and they do , roughly , unless you want to get out a triple beam scale and measure into differences of the magnitude of a few grains of sugar or salt

Velocity , paintballs travel thru the air and are subject to variations in currents (Ie, side drafts , head wind ) assuming it is calm , no wind , there is still friction from the paintball passing through the air , that is called drag , and will slow down a paintball ,or any projectile passing thru it. High Velocity rounds are conical to minimize this effect , pointed bullets etc , paintballs are round , their Co-efficient of drag (that is a valid scientific term ) is roughly the same , no matter what brand , and will all experience the same rate of slowing down due to this drag , its unaviodable . The rate of slowing is determined by the weight of the projectile , and its drag (shape) .

The range of a paintball is determined by its velocity and weight , Period . that means its effective range , because it needs to have enough momentum to break the gelatine casing WHEN it reaches its intended target , momentum is also called impact energy at the instant it hits the target . thicker shells on paintballs require more impact energy to break on a target than do thinner shelled paintballs , IE , the thicker shells require more impact energy to break than do thinner ones at the same distance and velocity . But for our purposes , all paintball shells are the same , and require equivalent impact energy to break , that translates into Feet Per Second , assuming that all shells , and weights are equal .

3.Aerodynamics , Here's where the Flatline shines , every projectile has some combination of co-efficient of drag , and inertia . The flatline puts a backspin on the paintball like a fastball in baseball,, Aerodynamically , that reduces the air pressure on the top of the ball , and increases it on the bottom , that creates a kind of lift ,like an airplane wing , but instead of using a fixed shape ,like a wing , it uses friction and inertia , the spin of the ball helps the air pass along the top of the paintball with less friction , than the bottom of the ball . It creates a lift effect , and makes the paintball travel flatter , further than a ball without the back spin , this is great for shooting under overhanging obstructions and such , low hanging branches , Etc .

TRAJECTORY : (I can count , but this is an after thought ) For all you non Flatline owners out there , like myself . Its the impact energy that matters , and there aint much you can do about that .  Go to "Mortar Mode" , Lobbing rounds into where your opponent is , Y'all know that to put your ball further out , you gotta aim higher , as long as your ball has the impact energy sufficient to break upon impact , dont let the Flatline intimidate you , at the same FPS it wont matter , unless you are in heavy overgrowth (then PH33r the Flatline ) , just aim a bit higher, soon the Flatline shooter , will be sitting in the dead box , Yer still an even bet on putting him out .

I "kill" flatlines all the time , no biggie , they are subject to the same rules of physics as I am , think of your shot as a stream of water coming out of a water hose (parabolic curve )(Ballistic curve) , whatever.. know your gun , know what it will do..
