LMAO you actually took the time to make that for this thread wow! What a loser!

Pot calling kettle black.  Mack and a few others here have forgotten more about paintball than you'll ever learn.  The fact you won't (or can't) back up your statements only shows your ignorance.

Paintball snipers dont have increased range im not using that argument. It is there style of play and markmanship that makes them a sniper. Hence if 2 individuals with these qualities encounter each other hence counter sniping.

So, using your logic, everybody is a paintball sniper.  LMFAO!!!!

If you're going to argue that there are paintball snipers, then I'm going to argue that there's paintball SWAT teams, and paintball demolitions squads, and maybe even paintball medics.

And just out of curiosity, what part does a fake suppressor play in a "sniper" marker?

I want paintball Close Air Support!


Well then we'll just put a few people from your squad up in the trees with some Quadzilla markers, and we'll call them paintball CAS, and they could throw buckets of paint down on the enemy team, and that could be carpet bombing.

Okay people this is from the dictionary.  Sniper, one who shoots an enemy from a long distance OR A CONCEALED POSITION!

Ooooh!  It's from a dictionary.  Therein lies the problem.  It is a generic layman's definition from a scholastic work.  Since woodsball is essentially a wargame perhaps a more appropriate definition would be one from a military source.  A more fitting definition would come from the same place that we derive much of our tactics and basic strategies (such as flanking, ambushing, cover and concealment) from.

Introduction

The sniper has special abilities, training and equipment. His job is to deliver discriminatory highly accurate rifle fire against enemy targets, which cannot be engaged successfully by the rifleman because of range, size, location, fleeting nature, or visibility. Sniping requires the development of basic infantry skills to a high degree of perfection. A sniper's training incorporates a wide variety of subjects designed to increase his value as a force multiplier and to ensure his survival on the battlefield. The art of sniping requires learning and repetitiously practicing these skills until mastered. A sniper must be highly trained in long-range rifle marksmanship and field craft skills to ensure maximum effective engagements with minimum risk.


A short perusal of this shows several basic reasons why most experienced woodsball player's find the idea of paintball snipers to be so amusing:
  • Legally chronographed paintball markers all have essentially the same performance.  Yes, electro-pneumatics have a higher rate of fire than mechanical markers, but realistically this is an issue that relates more to the individual player's budget that it does to the existence of any special equipment
  • There are no markers that allow the so-called "paintball sniper" to deliver highly accurate fire against targets which can't be engaged successfully by other players.  While the Flatline and Apex both provide extra range the inherent inaccuracy of the projectile means that target engagement at the additional range is a matter of accuracy by volume relegating these barrels to effective usage against area rather than point targets.
  • While there are some very tactically effective paintball players on the field who are capable of engaging and causing maximum damage with minimum risk, they are still limited by the technology they employ.  Additionally, putting on a ghillie-suit, hiding in a bush and waiting for targets of opportunity has very little to do with mastering skills through repetition and practice or developing basic skills to a high degree of perfection.
