what is the best marker set up to make a tippmann 98 most accurate while not having to go in close proximity of the enemy player?
>14" barrel?
>Red dot sight?
> Chamber expansion kit?
> Diffrent paintballs?

Quality barrel and quality paint plus a consistent air source.  LAPCO barrels are affordable and high quality, fresh Draxxus and RPS paint in medium bore with a relatively thick shell (tippys can be a little rough on paint ACS might help) such as blaze(if they still make it) premiums of marbillizers plus HPA and a secondary regulator (Palmer's stabilizer) did wonders for my 98. That and a clean barrel will give you optimal results, barrel length is not so important. Maybe a firepower upgrade to maximize hit probability and a hopper to keep up with it. Red dots are an OK reference point IMO, but not necssary. An x-chamber or remote line will make CO2 more consistent. Get a good barrel  and decent paint first, then hopper, then work on your gas system. Also, learn to get close. Getting inside 25 yards increases your hit probability dramatically, and sooner or later you'll end up in close quarters.

J&J and Lapco both make affordable fixed ID barrels. Several companies make kits with backs or inserts. J&J makes an Edge and Elite kit, Smarts Parts makes the Freak Kit, (may be hard to find) as well as WGP and others. I've only ever used the J&J Edge kit personally, but the Freak kit is pretty highly recommended from what I hear.
 
Yes, HPA stands for High Pressure Air.
 
An E-grip is made to be simple to install. Read the manual and follow the instructions. ALL of the instructions.
