Everytime I'm on the field I do a sniper thing. However, myself I am an airsofter and believe that similar styles apply to airsoft as paintball... Anyways... my sniper rant is that everyone in paintball is a sniper. Everyone is paintball has to be sneaky... everyone in paintball has to make good shots... no one in paintball has a one-thousand yard advantage. Hence my name The Specialist.
I would like to consider changing the name of Paintball Sniper to Paintball Specialist. A specialist is someone who performs special tasks that go beyond the means of any player. While saying specialist allows for the means to be stealthy and marksmanshippy (not even a word but you know what i mean) without the impression that oh check this out 100 yd paintball shot oh yeah i'm 1337. But, simply someone who has special orders.
Taking out a commander
Ambushing a patrol
Flanking behind enemy lines
Taking key shots
These are all jobs that are to be performed by a Specialist. Not a sniper... Because these tasks are performaed within fifty yards max instead of five hundred.
So! This has kind of strayed from my original plan and has turned into my reason why I changed the name of the Paintball Sniper ... to Paintball Specialist . (In my world that is...)
