so the guys that are saying its all in the gun consider this: theres more skill then just pulling the trigger. you have to aim and be able to manuever and have guts; that all takes skill. a newb that can pull a trigger on a $1000 gun will not take out a pro with a $100 gun. the gun just better enhances the players skill.

Go play against some good old school pump players. I have seen a good team sweep game after game against other teams w/ top of the line guns. I have also had my butt handed to me after they were done whipping it plenty of times. They taught me a ton about how to play smart.

Well I think it is about 35% marker and about 65%skill because my first 3 times playing I never got hit and I dont hide and wait for someone to walk out im fast, accurate and I work well with my team but I also have a model 98 and I haft to admit its a good gun but I was playing with two guys with angels and three with WGP karnivors and I never got hit.

The Gun can be a difference maker. Why did they have the Thompson Machine Gun and the M1 Garand in WWII? I could stay with almost anyone on the field until the DM4 came out. We do have a Local that came in 10th at World Cup in Rookie Ball. He can outshoot me probably 8 to 2 or 9 to 1. Skill is most important.

I've played speedball with my pump before and have done just as good as other players using mech/electro semi-auto guns. I'm not saying that I'm an amazing player or anything but unless a pump is considered better than say a cocker then I definitely didn't take these people out because of an advantage in firepower. They shot at me at whatever ROF and I shot once every few seconds back. Why did I get them instead of them hitting me? Maybe I was a better shot, maybe I'm better at playing tight to the bunker, maybe I can dodge their shots too good, maybe they're blind and couldn't hit me if I aimed the gun for them, who knows. What it came down to was a difference in skill, proving that having more skill can be more advantageous than having more firepower. I see people with "low-end" guns and rentals taking out guys with super guns all the time.

To get all philisophical, the gun should be made to fit the player's skill. A person who loves to take a few shots is not the best equipped with a spyder imagine (well...nobody is best equipped with that....) and a guy who loves to "hold the line" and be rambo should not have a phantom. The skill should determine the gun and it should be a part of the player. I'm not saying the gun doesn't affect the outcome of a firefight, but the player makes the game a victory or defeat

But I have solved this entire dispute. Take a man off the street and lend him an angel. Next get an ex-navy seal and give him a bag of paintball. See who wins.
