This is the scenario games forum. There is no such thing as "sniping" in paintball. Theres no such thing as a back player in woodsball either. There are players, and hiders.

If you stay away from the group, chances are your not going to encounter anything. There is usually a front when you play paintball. Its not like real warefare where you can deploy troops from any position from helo or underground tunnels etc... There is almost always "Their land" And "Our land" that either of you control. IF you like to be a "Sniper" GEt the mentality out of your head first of all. Try getting behind enemy lines as far as you can possibly go, and the turn around and flank em.

Player who goes off in woods away from main group and fines a good hiding spot and waits for enemy to come then takes time and picks off guys on at a time

ghillie maybe or well heck just plain camo. i wore a red jersey and ppl still couldnt see me.

yea main key is to get the exrtreme side and just crawl it if its inhabited if not just walk and be ready fro some guards.

btw alpha in a scenario i just gto back from there was things such as rabbit holes/worm holes we got 2 but they were the worst positions ever and only 1 guy could go so he got liut up.

A lot of time, money and skill. I mean, a REAL ghillie suit probably requires 10 hours of work.

Also, you don't just put on a ghillie suit and disappear. When you are in the game, you need to add leaves in stuff to it EVERY TIME YOU MAKE A MOVE. Paintball is too fast paced. Ghillie is something for hunting and military. You need to be ready to take an hour to move just 100 yards. In an hour you can probably get in 2 or 3 paintball games.

You need to be trained to use a ghillie suit, and you need to have a field with a TON of vegetation. Why don't they wear ghillie in say Afghanistan? ITs becuase its not like Vietnam or somewhere where there is so much foliage you CAN blend in.

If your pball field is cleared out just a little bit (like most are) you won't be able to use it. Ghillie = not for pball.

Those Cheap 40 dollar ghillie suit "kits" are useless.

BDU's are optimal,but you can get a cheap camo jacket and pants that hold up well in sporting goods stores for like 20 each. thats what i got, thier loose enough to run in and are pretty durable, even have double thick knees and elbows.

uhh when we play it takes about 3 hours for a game to be finished, cause we play on 200 acres, and objectives must be completed.

I've been to enough scenarios, they can be used Although the ones used would fail your approval. It doesnt have to be perfect, the idea is to break up your outline.

Who says you have to move like a sniper in a ghillie suit? If you sit there and wait for everyone to pass, then you spring out, then it served it's purpose did it not?

Alpha Alpha Alpha, cut down on the emo and play more paintball, you'll see this military ideas of your sucks in this game. There is a reason why most people in the armed services suck at this game

Since sniping in paintball doesn mean sneaking up on an enemy base and taking out a major political or military target, all that crawling and hiding for hours on end isn't nessasary, so the ghillie suit doent have to be perfect. All you have to do is fool like the five guys that walk passed you that you want to take out.
Even if you wanted to take out the opposing general or something, he is going to be so gaurded(usually) that your not gonna get close enough. The reason real snipers can take out those major well gaurded targets is becasue they can take out targets from a long way away, and wont even have to have a run in with all those guys(at least, in theroy). You can't hit someone from almost any real distance in paintball, so you dont have to worry about even TRYING that.

People think wearing a ghillie will make them invisible. And unless you use the same techniques used back to the Scottish ghillies (using a combination of burlap AND foliage) it won't do much.

And don't call me emo. You rsupposed to be a mod and be settign the example. So I've posted a few of my bad days in the lounge when I was pissed at the world and down in the dumps. I listen to punk rock and heavy metal rock music, have tons of friends that DONT cut their own hair, wear long baggy sweatshirts and draw dark sad pictures of themselves in their dark room.

I am a privelaged American teenager and while my hormones might not say so at all times, I have one of the greatest lives becuase I live in such a great country. I have a good family and don't deserve half as much of the junk I get.

that being said, most of the people that were in the armed forces rock. Marines in particular. Every Marine is 0311 out of boot camp, so most of them are good shooters, if not exceptional. And marksmanship = hand eye coordination+paint+ball = paintball.

you call yourself emo (30% woodsball, 30% speedball, 30% scenario(which is 90%) - 100% emo) you state u are FULL emo

you must not care or just belive when people call u emo, so dont tell people not to call u emo, this isnt like the "n" word where u can only say it if u r it . . . . . . . . . . .

I dont thnk Alpha is trying to be "better" than everyone else. He's got an opinion about "snipers" in paintball so he's giving it. THat's the point of a forum isnt it?? You al need to lighten up a little he's made some good points and he's only offering advice.

it's true that most armed forces people can't play paintball well. Thats going to change soon, at my Fort (Fort Gordon) we have our own paintball field with helicopters and our own speed ball field and black hawk down wood's ball scenario.

and Go Karts!

I can tell you that is a complete crock of **** when it comes to woodsball. I have and do regularly play with guys from the 10th MTNLT, and when you group them on a team, they know their ****. Sure, put them one on one with this one kid who's life is painthball, and they will lose. But their leadership and teamwork is astounding in objective based games.
