    Posted: 28 July 2007 at 3:28am

I think that in woodsball the position of sniper is a justified position.  I say this because a sniper in paintball is different than a real life military sniper.  The paintball sniper does not have the capability to hit targets from range like the military sniper, but he still values the art of concealment and field craft, thus giving him sniper like qualities. So instead of running away from the "S" word, I say we recognize its legitimacy, not in a literal view when refering it to paintball but in a paintball view.  It's all relative.

I'm sorry for feeding the troll, but there's one aspect that drives me crazy. This right here:

THIS IS WHAT EVERY PAINTBALL PLAYER IS SUPPOSED TO DO! Even the speedballers. Kthnxbye.

Kid, ya aint gunna win this debate... I tried one time, and lost horribly, they'll change your mind real quick.

Snipers in paintball do not exsist, just face it, sure some kids are sneakier than others, but that doesnt make them a sniper. We all use stealth, so that has nothing to do with being a sniper, we all use sniper like qualities, hell the guys in speedball with tall red flashing guns that shoot 20bps per second have "sniper like qualities" they hide, they try not to get shot, and they know how to use cover.

On another note, I think we should make it a new rule, if you start a sniper debate. We should just shoot you sniper style.

I believe my very first Tippmann post was on snipers. Must be the n00b initiation.
