What's wrong with "heavy gunner", it's a lot easier to adapt to paintball than being a sniper is. I think of those guys with the electro monsters that shoot ropes of paint and carry a bazillion pods as heavy gunners whenever they are on the field.  Additionally, when I'm deploying towards a defended position, I am very happy to have them providing suppressive fire on the defenders. The assault guys generally owe a lot of their eliminations to the assistance provided by the cover guys.  Also, when I don't feel like crawling/running/diving I grab my 98 w/Flatline and support the guys who are, in essence becoming a heavy gunner. (I do however prefer the term fire support.)

I also credit those mega-bps guys with helping with some of the sneaky single shot pump eliminations I get when I play with my Phantom.

Edited Note: Actually, a speedball kid (complete with jersy and fancy electro monster) saved my butt during a game just last Saturday. I was playing with the Phantom and had (by being one with the ground most of the time) managed to get behind the main force assaulting our flag station. I moved in, took out the one on the left with a single shot to the shoulder swung right and autopumped through the brush at the other one until he called out (which took four shots). Unfortunately, I didn't see the two in front of these two and found myself under heavy fire. It was only the intervention of the aforementioned flag-defending speedball kid, who used my surprise attack as an opportunity to get a better angle, that kept me from being eliminated. He took out the one moving on me and then I eventually relocated to where I could eliminate the last member of this group with a single well-placed shot to the head. (The brush was pretty thick, so this involved quite a bit of tactical movement to get into position for a good shot.)

I'm not a real fan of speedball. (I lack the "speed" part both on the trigger and on foot.) I play occasionally, but only because I've found it is a good way to work on my snapshooting skills (or lack thereof). I may have to try it just once with a pump since you brought it up. It would probably be even more of a rush than facing the guys in the woods with just a pump.

1.  Who was the above comment directed at?

2.  Do you even bother to read the previous posts before you post your inane comments?

3.  The picture you posted is a paintball marker, this is a sniper rifle. There is no combination of the two, i.e. a "Paintball Sniper Rifle."



4.  However, since I try to keep an open mind, I would be very interested in any arguments that could be forwarded which would justify characterizing any specific marker as a sniper marker.  To save time, I will pre-answer a few of the more common justifications below.
  • I get much better range because I crank my velocity way up
    • No, that's not sniping, that's cheating, stupidity, and putting other people at risk. Additionally, the nature of paintballs means that this also ruins accuracy.
    • Also if you shoot me with a hot gun, and I catch you, the rest of your day will not be a lot of fun because you will become my only target on either team for the rest of the day.  I will also assume that since you cheat at the chrono, you also wipe and will thus ensure that there is too much paint on you to wipe off each time I find you.  Oh, and did I mention that I will tell everyone on both teams about you which means that I won't necessarily be the only one amusing myself in this manner. (The group at my home field does not like cheaters, we've been known to throw our own team mates off of the field or in extreme cases, light them up on the field.)
  • I have a Flatline/Apex on my marker.
    • Yes, you get extra range, but no, you do not have one shot accuracy-not a sniper marker.
  • I have a 20" (or longer) barrel on my marker and a really cool stock.
    • Good for you. Neither of these accessories provide extra range so that does not make it a sniper marker. It just makes it harder to maneuver in the brush and somebody is eventually going to be laughing at you trying to get your marker unstuck from a vine while they shoot you repeatedly with their BE Talon.
  • I have the complete sniper body kit accessories from SuperLeet Sniper HQ (TM).
    • And it's a very cool looking marker* but those accessories do nothing for performance so it's not a sniper marker.
  • I use a pump marker.
    • Which means you are either a very skilled player or are trying to become one, but it still shoots just as far at the field velocity limits as every other straight barreled marker-not a sniper marker.
  • I used to be in the military.
    • So was I, this just meant that I had to learn that markers and real guns have different characteristics.
    • This does nothing for your marker and does not make it a sniper marker.

*Not sarcasm, I like cool looling mil-sim markers, I just don't want to own one.

That was directed to the pic that this entire thread was on.. aka the A-5 w\ Removable Opsgear mag, Bipod, etc.... I was not commenting on your rifle at all...since that's not what this topic is based on.
