Why?

Why does it matter what people call themselves?

Perhaps you didn't fully read the main parts of this thread man. It clearly defines a Paintball Sniper in words that have been taken and compiled from Dictionary.com's definition of a sniper.

There is no need for a new definition when we clearly have one that seems to explain every aspect of the paintball sniper, and not a sniper in general...

No, i call them Sir, they've earned it.

People will argue, at this point everyone is stubborn about it. It might as well be a religious debate.

Hello, is this full scale debate over? I wasn't sure, but if it helps, Snipers do exist, but were not like the militaries snipers, we are good for recon in scenario games, spooking our enemy's by getting behind there lines and them knowing something is there but they can't see it or hear it well, I know because I have played sniper position since day 1, And I stuck with it. I did not read the first post and I dont know what direction he went into but, snipers do exist and play a key role in paintball, and for all you saying :"If there is snipers then were are they?" Thats the point, are objective is to be un-seen. And for the new people who are wanna be snipers, try 1 season and see if you last, you need patiance, stealth, and honour to be a sniper, and most noobs ain't got that, peace out ppz. :P

Well I have a dictionary infront of me that doesnt describe it in those ways. I was mearly trying to make a point of having NO debate. We could cal them sharpshooters though you dont have to have range for that.

paintball snipers don't exist...untill one hits you between the eyes. i may be a sabre but like the motto says, i do it all. besides if anyone realy looked at sniper history i'm sure you would find that distance is not always a factor for even a military sniper. a sniper uses the maximum distance allowed by: 1 terran 2 concelment 3 clearist shot. a sniper can be 30 ft away and still be a sniper. if you don't beleave me talk to a real sniper that was in the jungle, or just watch the sniper movies. i think i'm just going to start calling myself a ninja. :ph34r: then again people would tell me ninjas don't use guns...just another debate war in the making.

Just throwing in my .2 cents im commenting on the psychological part of what is a paintball sniper.
Although the paintball sniper might not be able to get a one shot one kill elimination. He will make the enemy think that he can. He has already one battle if he has achieved this goal.

Thought I posted in this thread... ? Guess not. Well, here is part of what I tried to post earlier.

Since when have we been going to dictionaries for a list of qualifications instead of a simple description to get a general idea of what something is? Seems to me like the only "good" argument you have is the dictionary definition. I put good in quotation marks because that argument was good the first, maybe second time. But this is more like the 1000th time I've seen this argument used. It was an honest mistake the first time, but now it seems like an arrogant and much overused one. I'm not really trying to start a debate over something thats been debated a billion times - although if you want to I'd be glad to do so in PMs - simply asking for some originality to the sniper debate topic. Maybe some new arguments that haven't been clearly disputed, like the "definition" argument has been so many times in the past.

Saying you don't have to shoot long distances to be a sniper only shows how little you know about real snipers. I'd like to take note of the comment above^. Of course a sniper can be 30 ft away and still be a sniper. A dog catcher can catch a cat and still be a dog catcher. BUT to be a dog catcher, he has to catch dogs. You can't be a sniper because you shoot someone from 30 ft away, but you can be a sniper and shoot someone 30 ft away.

You say "ask a real sniper." Good idea. Anyone know a man by the name of Charlos Hathcock? Well, I'm a big fan, and have several books written about him and a few more that give him a mention. He's really a sniper legend. He, and people from his time(Veitnam War) really set the standard for sniping and made it what it is. They pretty much defined sniping. Sure, sniping has been around long before them, but they're really the ones that have defined it.

What do these people say? They say range IS a defining factor. That said, I'll say this. Now you are not trying to prove me wrong, you're trying to prove them wrong. I'll get quotes if you like.

Ahh the point. That little tid bit was made clear in my first attempt that somehow didn't work but in the second I accidentally didn't make it clear. The point is that, while I respect your desire to end the debate, your not. Every single point or argument you've given has been given countless times before and has been disputed. It doesn't prove anything and shouldn't convince anyone that paintball snipers exist. I thought, heck, since pretty much everyone is agreeing with all of that, I guess I'll have to be the one to point out that it in fact is not correct.

In summary, the topic starters points are incorrect.

So why should we care if you don't believe in our existence? Either way we're still deadly and just as effective at what we do.
