I don't like scopes on a paintball guns, they don't work so it's kinda pointless.

some scopes you can use for spotting, but not that one eye releif makes it impossible to use with a mask on.

yea well what xsvly said its jus for spotting
and cosmetics

I do have to disagree with people saying you can’t use a scope with a mask. With the way I have my scope mounted the back end is a little past flush with the back end of the gun (before the stock) and with my mask I can see perfectly through it. Yeah people may have problems with eye relief but it’s all in how you mount it. Also I disagree about scopes not being useful I find that about 80% of my hit shots are taken with my scope. It all comes down to how your setup is and how you play the game

about 80% of my kill shots are taken with my scope

Uhm... yeah... please keep wording like that out of posts. Taken in the context that I quoted, how bad does that look to you? :rolleyes:

With a 4X scope you decrease your field of view too far. I'm trying to equate 4X into degrees of viewing, but my mind's not working all the way through the pain meds. It's not that wide, though. With a red dot you get a better field of view, can see more, etc.

yeah your righ sorry bout that! :o

and i see what your saying you do lose a lot of "field of view" but it depends on the player if they are willing to sacrifice that

with the lack of veiw to if you should miss your first shoot you have no idea of knowing how much or in what direction to compensate for it.

you guys are so helpful thanx alot

To an extent yes your right i agree with you 100% but for the lucky few that have the capability of using their fields paint that matches there bore size they can shoot more accurate at long distance (around 100ft) so with let’s say a 2X scope adjustments are feasible. Also even if the paint doesn’t match the bore after a group of shots you can tell the relative area of where the paintball will go (you can be about 80% positive the paintball will fly that way) im sure you guys all have had or heard people talking about eperiences with scopes but im just going by what ive found.

I use scopes (mostly red dot sights though) on my pumps and I feel it helps alot there simply because I only have one shot if I miss that.....its over. so I grab every advantage I can, usually though I find in alot of situations playing pump you just dont have the time to use it.

Iíve never been a fan of shooting close range that why Iíve been doing a lot of "sniping" (I still think there are paintball snipers :)) I decided to set up targets from 50 to 120 feet in my backyard and learn how my gun shots with my fav. Paint. I have my scope set so it will hit around the crosshair at around 100 ft (only problem is at close range you have to aim above the crosshair and that takes a while to get used to) sometimes I wonder if I get too into trying to be a sniper :D

well, I think there are paintball snipers (at least in scenario)but thats as far as im going with that issue. There is alot more to it then long shots though refine the full roll to be effective. :thumbup:

04-23-2009, 09:21 PM
Yes, you are trying too hard. I'll shoot a rope at you once you're within 75-100ft or so as that's about where I'm certain balls will break. No point shooting farther than that.

even if you shoot off a nice bead of paintballs and im in some think rush all im gana get is a nice shower of paint haha. but there is always satisfaction in getting behind the enamy position and getting a few of them out unseen that makes me smile :)

personaly I beleive in versatility of play, you always have to adapt as the situation unfolds infront of you.
