It's been several years (sadly) since I've even been able to pick up a marker...

Has anything really changed for Broadswords in the past couple years?
Or is it still 'shoot fast, reload faster'?

Also, I'm running a 98c w/ Flatline and soon I'll be adding a 3000psi HPA, remote and 6-position stock.
Any advice on further modifications would be greatly appreciated...

Like I said, I've been out of combat for a few years.

For a "true" broadsword, I think you're gonna be a little under equiped with just one little 98. Have you added a cyclone or E-hopper, and a E or R/T?

No...to all the of the above...

I'm a college student, so cash flow is pretty limited as far as equipment goes.

Any advice as far as the evolution of tactics in the game?

get a flatline or an apex barrel.
distance has become the thing along with a high rate of fire and ammo capasity.

I have progressed from a 98 custom w/ cyclone, to an A5, and then I just purchased an X7. The broadsword position is not about equipment. It is a mindset. We lay paint and cover avenues of assualt move and cover our sabres, and daggers. we keep our commanders out of trouble when they think they are rambo. the equipment just facilitates this job. I feel pretty confident i could take just about any semi auto marker out and do the job. Its easier with the best equipment, but a broadsword is still a broadsword no matter what

Just to re-enforce what Invictus01 has said it all depends on your mindset for the position. As long as you can lay some paint, you can use just about any marker.

You don't NEED anything mentioned above to be a good broadsword unless your having trouble or a tough time with what you got.

Tactics haven't changed a whole lot, keep your opponents head down to allow the guys ahead of you to flank. Stay agile yourself though, The right angles can lock your opponent in very tight situations. Hold off the opposition and make sure you have enough paint to do it.
