either or. i would say a trench so you could run if needed. and attackpotatoe, do realize what u have just started. there is going to be an extreme amount of argument over the snipering position now. some people think there are such things as paintball snipers, some people dont. for some reason they want to kill eachother.

Ok, to be politically correct, there is no such thing as a sniper in paintball. Sniping is considered shooting from a long distance. In paintball, lond distances mean no accuracy. Try searching for other threads about this.

Also, if you sit in a tree, you WILL get lit up.

    I won't comment on the sniper issue, but I agree with sinisternorth when he says that if you hide in a tree and get spotted, there is really no escape.

we had a woodsball tourny about a month ago(just to change things up) and we came behind a kid who had climbed into a tree with a flatline.  my buddy took one shot and missed, the kid tried to turn ,hit the branch with his gun and dropped it, and promptly got shot by four members of our team before his gun hit the ground.

You should always position yourself where you can escape in woodsball, unless you are trying to complete a specific mission, where getting hit is likely.

A sniper in paintball is not like in the service... with the very best barrel the farthest shot you will make is about 300', and the accuracy at that range will be very poor.  A true sniper takes one shot and fades into the back ground.  That is not likely to happen in paintball... but it is fun to try and make the miracle shot sometimes and reposition yourself, or play a little different after your position has been noticed.

i believe in paintball sniping is shooting a person across the field with 1 shot NOT pray n spray and being a sharp shot is shooting someone on the run 20 yards away.  also you should only go in a tree when it is not over 50 ft high and a lot of leaves on it.

I don't know why you would want to be in a tree. When some one spots you, which will happen, you are going to be sorry.

 Well you figure the scientific definition for something accelerating downward  ( read = example : a paintball ) is projectile motion (lol I payed attention in science class for once). This means that gravity is pulling the object towards the ground in a curved way. A tree would work , but is a VERY BAD IDEA!  I wouldn't want anyone to get lit up and risk falling out of a tree. Aim higher than the target by atleast an inch or two and your shot should hit.

Hope this helps you out    Hang in there

You don't sniper somebody, the correct term is snipe. A sniper is a noun, a person who snipes. Of which there are none in paintball.

It's interesting that the people who are generally on the side of no such thing as snipers in paintball are the ones who are or were in the military, or police.

Cool, a sniper debate!

By chance does anyone remember what the question was?  Or did eveyone suddenly feel the need to talk out of their ass?

Attackpotatoe,

In response to your question, it depends.  The best tactics are either learned from professionals like the police or military tactical units or learned through trial and error.  The biggest problem is that not every technique will work for everyone.  The fun part is getting together with your friends and finding out what works for your team and what doesn't. 

What some of the responces have tried to say here is that whatever position you decide to shoot from, you will need to have an escape plan.  So basically, you do not want to be in a position that will leave you trapped.  And also, don't be afraid to try new ideas.  You never know what will work unless you try it.  So play hard and have fun.

Ahahaha This is like the perfect recipe for killing your self. Yes please climb fifty feet in the air and then fall from that tree because you will be spotted  because the tree will be shaking..  Then as you hit the ground at 53 miles per hour (depending how many branches you hit on the way down.)

And now secondly, there is no such thing as a farther shooting barrel the flatlines exempt from this, end of story. It Is all simple physic's a paintball gun barrel does not apply to the same principles as an actual rifle barrel. In paintball the ball is filled with liqiud It is not completly solid so putting a spin on the paintball will cause the ball to wobble in mid air completly defeating accuracy.

Thirdly, if you would like to become a camper take somewhere higher up its simple logic the higher you are the more arc you can make lobing paintballs in the air..
