Let me be the first to chastise you for posting virtually the same question on this forum and under Gun Maintenace and Repair . You will get the answers you need with one post, and posting twice will irritate some who could help you, but won't now.

You do realize that you can go back and delete a post or edit it to be more comprehensive. If you decide that you have posted to the wrong forum, go and delete that post before posting the same question to another forum.

You're pretty much set. Get a remote if you want. I find them difficult to use in the woods though. Thats just me. X-chamber if you want more consistancy.

/runs to take cover from flames

Go for a remote and that's about all you'll need.

People on the forums believe that there are no such things as Snipers in paintball... As of me, I dont care.... If you consider yourself a Sniper thats on you... But you'll probably get torn up around here if you mention it.

Since no one else is really answering the question really except saying remote...snipers are usually very accurate right? So instead of focusing on the looks of your "sniper" gun try making it perform like a "sniper" gun. Now I know this is paintball and you will never be extremly accurate and all that stuff but you can add upgrades to get better accuracy. First I would recommend an Expansion Chamber...use air more efficiently. Then maybe try polishing the internals for smoother operation(I polished mine and my velocity spiked by 50 fps) Also try getting a new powertube and bolt. I have added these upgrades to my gun and have had wonderful results so far.

Yeah just start out with both of them. X-core would be nice and any remote would work out nice.

There is no problem considering yourself a sniper in paintball....
It can be sort-of compared to the military snipers, but it is really hard to get a one hit kill, you have to long-ball your shots and be in effective range to neutralize the target!
-Hey when people see you walk on a woodsball field with a home-made lightweight guilli suit they never say "There's no snipers in paintball" ... No they all shut up and like stare at you in a trance.. and always want you one thier team....or is that just me??

You need a flatline, expansion chamber, maybe a anti-siphon tube in your Co2 tanks, red dot scopes are cool too.., and maybe a new hopper ( A QUIET ONE!!) <-- ask someone else about a hopper my personal suggestion would be to buy the cyclone for the 98...

Yes. being a "sniper" doesnt have anything to do with your gun. its a strategy.

shut up. it doesn't matter.  you're the only one that's bothered by it.  i just told him to not say sniper...  i never said they didn't exist.  now drop the subject and help him.

as for the upgrades, i'd get hpa instead of co2, also, i don't think you need an ex chamber or a reg with a remote line...  i'd also get a barrel kit in place of your flatline...  flatlines arn't very accurate...
