What is it that keeps drawing me back to buying a Spyder when I can buy any other gun of my choice?!?

Default Re: No snipers in paintball???

Well to think about the fact that we are all shooting at the same FPS, our range is going to be relatively the same. But here is the definition of sniper;

1. A skilled military shooter detailed to spot and pick off enemy soldiers from a concealed place.
2. One who shoots at other people from a concealed place.

Normally we think that sniping is always from far distances, but that isn't always the case. Its just that if your farther away, you are probably more concealed from the enemy. So like a few of you have already mentioned, staying back from the front lines and knocking people off is more like support fire for the front line men. So when you put a "sniper" on a speedball field, its not really sniping, its just like back up fire. Because you can't really "sharp shoot" in a speedball field, almost anyones marker can reach the other side of the field. But, IDK, just offering my take on it.

Since I must put words in for a post to put this in:

*sigh*, what the hell, might as well. If you think that being a little girl and sitting hidden in some clump of bushes "sniping," waiting for me to casually and stupidly just walk by is the most efficient way to defeat a faster, bigger, stronger, and smarter opponent... good luck. I'll see you off to the deadbox.

Thanks Tim, I'm glad a few people got the intent of it. Now I know not to mention the word "sniper" again.

DFSniper surprises me in that he didn't goad me into posting. Whoops, said "sniper" again...

Yeah, this thread's way OT at this point.

You won't need that scope... I'm right up in your Grills (yes, pun intended) from the moment the ref says "go."

It went way off before that, prolly the end of the first/start of the second page, haha.

Didn't realize this thread has gone to 27 posts. I figured it would last a day and be dead.... I should have known better.

I know i'm getting myself in this deeper and going off my own topic, but here it goes. So your saying that a guy standing in the back shooting slow deliberate shots, with a mechanical semi automatic trigger, at people as they move is the same as someone shooting an electronic trigger bunkering some one?????? And a sharp shooter is different from a sniper. Once again, the whole intent of the post was a humorous look at my woodsball teammate playing speedball with a fully dedicated milsim X7. This post went on long enough, we need to stop beating a dead horse.
