There is no real sniping in paintball but if you want to be as accurate and as distant as possible, i would go with the flatline.

This irks me. No one is saying using military style tactics doesn't work, isn't fun, isn't effective, whatever. However using military style tactics does not make you a sniper. The style of play described by players who claim to be "snipers" is universally a pretty good approximation of basic infantry tactics and has nothing to do with true sniper tactics or practices. Call your self a mil-sim player if you feel the need to differentiate yourself from others but for God sake please stop using the word sniper.

Ok im going to end this right now, me and my friends are military fanatics, and we have seen just about every war/military movie out there. Read almost every tactic out there, and ive come to this conclusion, a "sniper" is an expert marksmen who travels with one other person , ie, his spotter. and the sniper takes out enemy soldiers/players one by one, and is never in direct fire fight. which is the goal of the sniper because if they are spotted they are dead. In paintball this tactic is easily used, by flanking your oppent and setting up and having your team push the enemy back to you, in this case you can inturn take the enemy out, however a sniper in paintball must move to be succesfull, because like everyone has said the range is greatly hampered. now tell me that snipers dont exist and ill give you another arguement, and just cause im new to this forum doesnt mean im new to the sport. Also a perfect example of a sniper would be from the movie Saving Private Ryan, now he wasnt 500 yards away from the battle he was inside the battle, un orhodox, but effective, however he did die. My case has been proven.

Thank you for proving my point Lastline07.  You're example of being a sniper in paintball is a small unit ambush. That's basic infantry tactics and has nothing to do with being a sniper.

you guys are so petty, sniping is there its just not your idea of sniping. your idea of sniping is what has been assimilated into the military culture. if you put things into proportion here, being a sniper can and is used in paintball. of course shooting from 500 yards is impossible in paintball, however the if you proportion this little equation, youd see that anyone that plays back and picks off enemies in the front can be classified as a sniper. Sniping in paintball is a horse of a different color. just like i mentioned before with the saving private ryan  thing, the sniper wasnt even that far away, but he was a sniper. it is a logical tactic, sniping is a tactic, and is used. trust me my friend does that **edited**, he climbs trees and has taken out an entire squad in 30 seconds cause no one new where the shots were coming from, 2 of the marks were head shots.

... I can not believe you people... one "sniper" topic gets locked and what do you do? make another one.

You people might as well just write a book and keep it tucked away in a dusty corner somewhere because nobody is going to believe you no matter what definition you give them!

So the only ultimatum is to drop the "sniper" subject, and just play the frappin' game!

I'm sorry to be such a , but it gets really sickning to see from 5-10 "sniper" debates a day all arguing about what the word "sniper" means to them. Just be a good sport, and enjoy the game!

P.S. Everybody can go back to livin' thier lives, now

Seriously, just drop it. Did you even bother running a search before you posted this worthless exuse of a thread? I don't mean to attack you man, but you seriously did not think this through too well.

There have been over a dozen of these threads in the last month or so, and this one was sub-par even for a sniper thread. You just started flaming pointlessly like some 9-yr. old 'tard. Listen to evil_fingers and AdraivII, they actually know what they're talking about.
Do a search before you post here again.

Peace.

Thats easier said then done, newbies will never search, they will jus start a new thread wit the same subject thats been discussed more times than anything in the world and recieve the same response....and Im sooooooo glad I never asked the "sniper" question!

Do not steal....the government hates competition!

another sniper post? come on....

snipers in paintball do not exist. just because you go around sneaking and crawling and shooting out of a bush doesn't mean that you're a sniper. As Betterdays said, most people who consider themselves "snipers" are actually just using basic military tactics and don't know any better. Hollywood doesn't portray snipers accurately, remember, they're trying to sell movie tickets. Snipers are most often used as scouts, relaying enemy troop movements back to the larger main force. Also, paintball guns are not accurate enough to be considered "sniper" guns.

Snipers don't exist in paintball. End of Discussion.
