i stopped reading that post whenever i heard him say "snipersdon'texist".  usually, i just skip those posts because they usually just rant and lead up to arguements.  Sorry for not being perfect enough to post on an internet forum, your highness.....

Quiet guns don't really help that much in paintball.
I mean comon,  when they're "sniping"  if they don't hit you on the first shot THEY'RE screwed.  Cause you can easily SEE the paintballs coming in even if you can't hear his gun.  This guy  had a gun that made no noise at all but I spotted him and eliminated him cause I could see the CO2 coming out the end of his barrel.  So  if you can see the paint flying through the air,  the air coming out of the end of his gun then what good does making it quiet do?

Not everyone can afford a Q-loader, and not every marker will have much in the way of visible CO2 coming out when you fire. Also, a padded hopper isn't just for when you're firing. You can be advancing carefully through the woods and still get some noise out of your hopper. Padding the inside would be nice for when you're trying to walk silently.I know I've been in that situation before. I don't think it's ever gotten me killed, but quieter is always better.

 OK BASICALLY SOME PEOPLE SPENT ALL THERE MONEY ON A NEW GUN(ME) AND A FLATLINE AND STOCK(ME). I HATE THE FACT OF HOPPERS COSTING 50-100 DOLLARS!! YES SILENT HOPPERS=GOOD BUT MINUS MONEY AND NO HOPPER! DONT USE COTTON BALLS THEY COULD BREAK OFF AND CLOG OR MAY GET INTO THE GUN! USE A GOOD THIN LAYER OF RUBBER. SOMETHING SOLID THAT WONT BREAK OFF! THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

Ok. Stop typing in caps, stop using explination marks when they shouldnt be, and use commas and then we'll talk.

i think snipers do exist ^^ but... doing this backward lol is a good way i think to stop ball breaks on your hopper ^^ glue cotton balls to outside of hopper, and cover them up so u dont got a big white target saying "hah, you cannot break ur ballz on me, but the player is right here" lol id just get some camo cloth, and glue that on.

Good idea though^^ i must try

If you want a quiet "sniper" hopper...

Options...

1. Buy padded hopper

2. Make padded hopper

3. No hopper=no noise :D just hand feed them lol

Ah....God I'm bored

i can read it...

anyways, i play "sniper" *thats what i call it cuz its quicker to say dont flame me* anyways, first of all ricochet does make a sniper barrel but sadly the gravity version is only made for cyclone feed and balls breaking would soak into the cotton and screw that up i prefer the foam idea but i recomend putting layer or 2 of duct tape over it to further insure that it doesnt soak in and that its quiet

I got some felt, and just "Hot Glued" it on there! Works great! Very silent, so nice idea.

 

Two thumbs up

Well,  when things are either to warm and humid,  or to cold and damp  in the dense woods we play in,  man those guns smoke like nuthin else. 

In a world where everyone has gone mad, only the lunatic is truly sane.
