sadly spec ops is basically out of business so there aren't very god stocks or mods out there like the longbow/q bow anymore.

However AGD is still up and running so you could get one longbow ready and just keep your eyes open for the shroud and mag kit.

Tiberius Also has the T.9 ranger that has the First Strike round capability.
Aim for anything that is visible, most of my shots are either leg, elbow or head... that is if you see me first.

If you want sniper, this is it. Everything else is just a heavier paintball gun. However, check that you can use first strikes at your field first.

pfft. snipers exist. They are the ones that blast you when you go running for the flag. You never see them so you THINK they don't exist.

I have video proof.


Boom, Headshot.




Get an Apex 2, Amazing barrel.

Rumors of our demise are...well...just completely wrong!

We're not out of business at all. In fact, we will soon be announcing some changes that will make us bigger and better than ever!

As for sniper gear...the debate is over. Real snipers can exist in paintball. Check out First Strike Paintball rounds for Tiberius markers. They are amazing!

In my experience, the Apex makes it less accurate.... Yes it goes further due to backspin, but those who believe in pb "snipers" say its not about distance anyway, so why the apex?

My review of the original apex is in the reviews section.

I've been playing with an apex for 3 years. Just like anything else, it is what you are set up for. Choosing the right paint is critical, and once you find that paint, you can then figure out other ways to increase your capabilites. But, my accuracy goes way up when I use an apex.

Here is a accuracy test I did a few years ago with my Apex. Showing just how important paint selection is when playing paintball.



From the results of that test, I use xball woodsball primarily. And just the other day I did a little test with a stock barrel, smart parts 2 piece, and the new apex 2.

In the cold... very cold... at 120 feet I couldn't even hit the target (which is the size of a player 17.5 X 23) with the smart parts or stock barrel, but I could hit it with the apex 2.



I have shot guys over 300 feet away in games before many times, using my apex. It isn't "sniper" accurate, but can be done. I am pretty good at nailing guys at 170 feet or closer in a game setting as can be seen in my many video's on my channel.

subscribe if you like it. New footage often.


We played Saturday, and Empire "sponsored" me by sending me some of the new Apex 2 barrels. Well guys were standing around the Chrono station as I was doing everyones guns, and Jeff came up to me with his Rap4 98 custom decked out to look like an Ak -47 but with a stock barrel. He asked me what difference the Apex 2 made...

I told him to shoot the telephone pole that is 60 feet away. He fired a bunch of shots at it and although he came close... he couldn't hit it.

Then I asked him to hit the bucket on a pole at 100 feet away. He didn't even come close to that.

I handed him the new 14 inch Apex 2 barrel with 98 custom threads. He threaded it on and aimed at the telephone pole (I set it at 3 clicks).

He fired ONCE and nailed it DEAD CENTER.

The he turned towards the bucket at 100 feet. And shot at it, missing low. He tilted up and nailed the bucket... And then hit it a few more times just because he could.

He turned to me and said he was going to order one the next day. And the group of guys that had just witnessed this were all in agreement. As they wanted one too.

That is the difference. (he was using the paint I recommend xball woodsball scenario btw).

Any barrel is an improvement over the 98C stocker.
