If you are good at concealment loud doesn't matter. I'm pretty sure Carlos Hathcock's .308 was loud, as was his modified .50 and no VC ever got him... I know, paintball snipers and military snipers aren't the same, but in some aspects they are. Just thought I'd throw my two cents in... Good review, helped alot

A sniper can have a loud marker, yes. That makes it ten times easier to discover him, and zero in his position.
If you had a loud marker and waited for people to come within 30 feet of you to shoot them then that means you have a 30 foot zone you are effective in. You are not firing at people from a distance and giving them time enough to zero you in. A lud sniper can not make shots very far, or the ris of beign discovered is that much more huge.
If you have a quiet marker you can pin them from up to 150 feet away and still remain concealed. remember that a snipers job is also to harass the enemy and slow their offense to a nervous crawl. Loud snipers find themselves getting caught WAY too often, where silent snipers do themselves and their team way more good.
When one sniper can hold up an entire offensive flank by themselves, buying their team valuable time, then he becomes the real MVP for the game. When snipers sit in bushes and wait for people to travel within 30 feet of them they are wasting alot of opportunity.
Besides, there is not one single benifit to having a loud sniper marker. There is plenty reason to have a quiet one. Common sense.... but the problem with common sense is that it is not too common.
Use an A5. They are great... but even Spec Ops didnt make a sniper A5. They used Tac Ones and Ion, which are quite simply much better for sniping. Case and point.

Also Tyger did a video on webdog talking against snipers. Now while I don't agree with everything he said there was one thing that stuck out. He argued that a loud or quiet marker doesn't make a huge difference of whether you're going to be caught or not. If you fire off just one or two rounds it will be very hard to find you no matter how loud or quiet your gun is.

I don't know if there was something wrong with my stiffi before I sold it but it was really loud compared to the barrel kit I have on it now. And its just a regular aluminum empire barrel kit. It wasn't real accurate either, plus it scratches really easily, I took a chunk out of the end the first time I played with it. By the way it was on an A5.
