What Should I do Now ? for my 98 custom

I have a 98 custom and I need upgrades but I cant decide and I have a very limited budget so PLEASE GIVE ME IDEAS. Because Im at this awquard point where Im deciding whether to go away from the Sniper direction and towards the automatic direction but still play in the woods.

What I have :

Tippmann 98 Custom:
16" Windforce Barrel
Double Trigger (not electronic)
Viewloader Force Feed Hopper ( 18bps )
Collapsible Stock
Co2 Tank





What I was thinking about (PLEASE SUGGEST OTHER STUFF !! )
Response Trigger
14" J&J Ceramic Threaded Barrel
M16 Carry Handle
Remote Line (my harness doesnt have a pouch for my Co2)
Nitrogen Tank (What kind?)
Drop Forward
Expansion Chamber Kit



PLEASE JUST TELL ME WHAT TO GET !
my minds gonna like explode lol

Indeed
Other than what Shiner said, save up your money for a new gun

There are plenty of guns out there for next to nothing that will shoot much better than your tippmann, and you can always keep the tippy as a loaner/backup

Have you considered adding a cyclone to it? If you go in the "automatic direction", I think you'll find that the cyclone performs better on a Tippmann than an electric hopper does. If you go the "sniper direction", you'll at least clear the line of sight and allow yourself to mount a red dot.

That being said, getting a whole new gun is probably the best idea.

I don't really see how a cyclone will preform better than a forcefed hopper would; sure it's sustom built for the marker, but that doesnt' make it better. You can pick up a used halo or buy a brand new eyeforce or invert too for around $60. Then you have a hopper you can use on anything, and it works just as well.

I'm just recommending from personal experience. I Tried using a Halo, VLocity, and Eggy 2 & 3, and all four had bad chopping at above 10BPS. The cyclone, on the other hand, didn't.

response trigger- good choice if you want to increase rate of fire cheaply
14" j&j- always a good choice, but a barrel is a barrel. i wouldnt worry about changing barrels. I would be more worried about finding a good paint to match your windforce
m16 handle- Mostly asthetic. Get it if you like it the look
remote line- Personally I dont like them but if you find your marker to be too heavy might be a good choice
Nitro tank- not really worth it if you're not going to get a lpk and a reg. just switching to nitro will give you minimal results. if you're budgets really tight, I would say stick with co2
drop forward- Good idea if you want more balance
expansion chamber- Probably best bang for your buck in terms of co2 upgrades

Really I say first ask yourself what you're trying to achieve(speed or accuracy) and then figure out where you are going ot take it from there. I would suggest figure out if you want to stay co2 or convert to nitro. Converting will cost you quite a bit and if you're budget is tight, may not be your best choice. If you stay co2 then my suggestions would be:
1. expansion chamber
2. drop forward
3. RT if you decide you want your tippy firing faster
