I got a 98c and i wanted to kno what parts in need or upgrades i need
to be a sniper(sumthing like one) with my 98c, i'm not in to all that
automatic stuff, or shooting like 20 balls at a time!!
      
Scopes,sights,barrels,upgrades etc.

P.S.    I kno alot of u out there don't beleave in the whole "sniper" thing,   but i'm  not a person who likes to shoot a bunch a balls to get a hit,   i don't got money to buy balls all the time,  plus i like the whole scenario thing

THERE ARE NO SNIPERS IN PAINTBALL, you can make ur gun look like one, but there is no such thing as sniping, any gun can be a sniper, i think sniping in paintball is sitting in one spot and only shooting 50 rounds a game, unless you wanna ramp your velocity settings then maybe i'll consider u calling it sniping.

there is in scenario but what ever no need to start flaming the poor newbee theres kits ir you want it to look like a sniper like to get it to look like a barret or a psg-1 but i would just go with a good barrel about 12 or 14 inches long, a remote line so you dont have a tank in the way, a pod holder with a place to put the tank, a red dot scope (theres no need for a magnifying scope), maybe a stock, and compressed air thats pretty much it you could also get it painted just for looks iam not sure if iam missing anything but i dont think iam

maby some type of electric upgrade for ur gun that wont hurt anything maby sometype of folding stock but u goto look into about the stocks because if you get a stock youll have to get an offset rail for you scope or smoe type of raised rail or a stock that is made to give you enought clearance for ur mask beacuse most the time ur mask/googles are to big to do that

even though there are NO snipers in paintball, because 1.they don't have good enough accurace...and um thats pretty much it.

but IF you wanted to be like one then i would say get these:
Flatline
Stock
remote line
go to walmart and get one of those $10 scopes from Daisy.

and then after you get those, consider painting your gun camo.

thats pretty much all i have to say, that is as close as you are going to get to being a sniper. oh and have fun getting out.
Setup:
Tippmann Custom Pro
E-trigger
12" All American
BT Folding Stock
GTA Inline Expansion Chamber Kit
Dead on Pro seal
Cyclone Feed System
Remote Line

Regardless of the flaming your request has received I find there are opportunities for undetected single shot killers. Requisite is a flat shooting barrel like a Flatline or Apex. An HPA system with the excellent Palmer Stabilizer for shot to shot consistency. And a Red Dot sight or a 1X power scope (no magnification). And practice, practice, practice with the same paint week after week.

Zero the marker at 150 to 200 ft and work at hitting a 12" circle at that distance...first shot. This type of developed skill of taking one shot kills at distance is equally effective on the woodsball OR speedball field.

Don't broadcast your position with ropes of paint and pull back quickly after that killing shot. Don't even let the guy who was hit know from where the shot came. Even though the barrels are not quiet, if you pull back quickly it is difficult to identify the source of that unexpected shot. Resist looking out again too soon, particularly if no paint came your way. Then carefully and slowly peek out and establish your next target. If you weren't spotted, don't move from that position.

there are snipers its in woods and scenario ball.  they may not be able to shoot as far as a real military sniper but a paintball sniper needs to be just as stealthy and accurate.  best bet for the 98 is to get the closed cocking system so everything is internal.  this should reduce the mechanical noise of your gun.  also try to get a pretty quite barrel and some ghille wrap for ur self

all you need to be a sniper in paintball is a nice comfy pillow, and possibly a blanket so you can take a nap. You're not doing your team any good sitting there waiting for something to happen, get off your butt and go shoot somebody.




A gun is not a weapon... It's a tool. Like a butcher knife, or a harpoon, or...uh, a...an alligator.

The real question is perhaps what exactly are you trying to achieve?  The word aside, what result are you looking for?

If you want extra range, buy a Flatline or an Apex.  If you want accurate, buy a quality straight barrel like a Bigshot or All American.  If you want "real"-looking, buy various cosmetic upgrades, like scopes, stocks, magazines, muzzle breaks, etc.  If you want quiet, buy a new gun.

It all depends on exactly what you want.

Guys, I have seen a "sniper" working in a scenario game from a second story of an old boarded up house. He was in the shadows inside the room well back from the window through which he was shooting. Over the period of an hour he took out over 20 of the opposing force...and was never detected. All of his shots were at 150 to 200 ft. Even with the rather loud report from his Flatline, the lack of any other clues to his location prevented anyone from effectively returning fire.

He was set up in a chair and resting his marker on a rolled up duffle on the table in front of him. It looked to me to be a classic "sniper" layout. He may not have been a Ed Kugler, but he was very effective.

Heavy Sigh
Is the problem with the forum and snipers, people who want to emulate a sniper style of play, or the people who insist with religeous zeal that snipers don't exist in paintball.
Obviously you have never tried to get to a player that had a good vantage point on the field. Who had already shot out half your team before you figured out where he is. And then had to low crawl through the brush to get a shot back at him. I call that a sniper.

Um..... I think I'll keep it because you just double posted... so you've just proved you're still a noob. And no, you don't know what you're talking about most of the time.
