Well... I keep seeing posts that people keep saying... imagine a sniper that does blah blah blah. Well... it seems that people kind of stereotyped that only snipers can make good shots or only snipers have perfect accuracy which is entirely not true. Any player in paintball to a certain extent acts as a "sniper" because I can guarantee you EVERYONE sneaks around the field. Any well experienced sabre or dagger I can guarantee you has devolped an immense amount of stealth. Now, do we consider them snipers because they can be really quiet and make really good shots? But aside from that, no player will run around the field shooting at random things and going all Rambo style.

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.

IE

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 :D . (In my world that is...)

Everyone would be a "specialist" then. That's why they were assigned to do a ceratin task right?

And I am not "petitioning" to change it because it's kind of dumb. I don't care if you don't like the term sniper. I do, so I'm going to use it. I don't see what the big deal about this is. Does it honestly effect your life enough to where you feel the need to have to change it? Just because a few people don't like the word doesn't mean the rest of us are going to be what you think we should be.

Do we REALLY need to go over this crap again guys?

Honestly, we already pointed out the obvious in a thread stating basically the same view points on a paintball sniper and the lable of the specific position...

If you don't like it then don't call your self that, but don't come in here and try to tell us experienced ones that we need to change the position label because your logic does not grasp the basics of what we already know...


I am sorry to be blunt, but I am gettign very sick and tired of dealing with people trying to change this when we all "should" or do know what a paintball sniper is...

FYI, the mods don't dig the rants(especially ones like mine that make as much sense as peanut butter w/ pizza) so try to cut down on them.

I learned it the hard way.

Sry mods i've been a jerk lately, i'd like to apologize.

EDIT:btw, thats a generalization. A sniper is a TYPE of special position w/ special tasks, just like commander, etc... poor generalization

why do ppl wory bout this so much does it offend them or sumptin? are u a real sniper?

its a name given to use cuz wut we do, why do they call a rifleman a dagger, or a heavy gunner a sabre?

we learn from real snipers, study their tactics, learn arts of concealment, and practice situations like them (of course without real weapons)

its also how we play, we take maybe like 100 or 200 balls, opposed to 500 too 1000. we make carefully placed shots and seperate shots like 1 evry 1 min to keep concealment unless attacked.
you dont see a person open fire shoot like 500 balls from a concealed position and find out their a sniper.
sure evry1 can be stealthy, but to what extant, we totally conceal ourselves to the point you could step on us and not know or get any hint of it. a normal gunner might start to shoot as soon as he sees som1.
thats y most of us call ourselves snipers

Why don't you make your self a bigger signature, I don't think it is big enough.....

You might want to change that before the Admins do.

Edit: The mods got it as I was typing.

Hey you don't have to. It's just my idea of what a sniper is. You do not have to agree nor argue, yet simply view it from my side... There are wayyyy too many people calling themself snipers which is why I have stopped. I hate saying Oh yeah i'm a sniper... then hearing everyone else saying oh yeah im a sniper too... When ask how I play i simply respond i play the specialist role...

Like I said, you don't have to read, nor care, but c'mon, don't spam and discourage me.. Oh and the petition thing... I'll have better luck becoming the president of america... And i'm canadian... ehh?

1 thing i really think should be done is a sniper test, kinda like the officer test but for ppl who are snipers, but they would have to score like a 85 or 90% to be called a sniper. then have a special avatar or somthing under thier name that can only be aquired from a mod as proof of completing it

Lol, thats cracks me up. Well, its not a horrible idea, its just that to be honest I would never pass the test I will admit. I mean, if you think about it the paintball sniper does a whole lot of different things, and every sniper will do it differently. There is no set in stone way of playing sniper nor any other position for that matter. If I were to take the test my views would probably not agree with the true answer that is deemed to be correct.

I just call myself a sniper because I really don't fit any other position. I like to play hide and seek, mess with people a bit and confuse them, and also get kills that are a shock to people. Thats what it is all about for me, so I just call it sniper. I dont care what they call it, I just seem to do it! Call them Paintball Possums for all I care, sniper is just a name that seems to fit the best....

Ever hear the story bout the fox who lost his tail and tryed to convince everyone else to cut off theirs?

sbcs: Hey, i just called you a paintball Taco. "Hey, ghostinthewood said that I'm a paintball Taco on the SO forums! So i guess thats what fits me best!"

NO disrespect to Tyger, but just because somone says somthing on a show or forum, doesnt make it true. In this case however, it doesnt matter. Although you shoudlnt base your ideas on what other people have said. Think for yourself instead of regurgitatting what you hear.
