Okay i am not a sniper, but i play like them so i decided to start thinking about getting some better camo (ghillie) and stuff. My friends and I were talking about our in development team and we started to talk about tactics, we were thinking what if we had all 5 of us in some sort of ghillie. Is wouldn't this be good as long as we learn to use them right, plus we already are planning to be doing a lot of ambushing. So wouldn't a all ghillie squad be good? If members use different types and degrees of how much ghillie they have on. So is it a good idea.

Here is a good strat a thought of to use with this squad.

My strategy for this was have 1 or two of the guys set up a ambush at point A and the others set up a ambush at point C. When The enemy squad reaches point B they open up in a ambush, this makes it look like they are bad snipers and cant ambush, so the enemy bunkers down and the other guys attack them from behind and eliminate the squad, everyone retreats and sets up another ambush or moves on up the field stealthily.

= forest
- trail
I bunker

I've thought about this tactic before. I personly think it would work because there's usauly not five sniper's in one area. Even if one of the snipers are takin out it could help the ambush all that more cuz its unlikely they would think of looking for more then one sniper in one area. all though Have a couple of people not in ghillie to lure them in so they would'int think of looking for snipers. :laugh: :) :ghillie: :ghillie: :ghillie:


Good luck.

if you had comms it could be incredible because of the "1 sniper per area" thought process, like after the first sniper is taken out he signals to the other teammates to hold fire, then the advancing troops will think he was acting alone and continue exposing themselves and other advancing troops even more

But the only thing is that if you get hit you have to call your self out because a paintball proboally wont break on a ghillie.

paintballs do break on ghillie most of the time. depends on what kind and how bushy or thick it is.

That would be really freaken cool an entire team in ghillies. But the other team would know and shoot at the slightest movement.

More burlap and jute does not an effective squad make. :P

The more adaptable you and your squad are, the more effective you will be on the field. Ghillie is hot and cumbersome, wearing it encourages you to camp and "wait for an ambush." You don't have to wear ghillie to hide effectively or keep quiet.

What you guys need to learn is: it's not about gear, it's about tactics and technique.

My point is, Action Ghillie less effective than burlap and jute and it's just as hot (if not more so) because vinyl is like rubber.

Perhaps in the real world, if a squad of ghillied up special-forces surrounded an al-Qaeda training camp and proceeded to open fire, you could call a "ghillie squad" effective.

But in paintball, you just get a squad of uncomfortable campers.

You don't need ghillie, of any kind, to ambush, stalk, or flank effectively as a squad. You need teamwork, a sharp leader and lots and lots of practice. Ghillie will not solve any of those things.

There's nothing wrong with ghillie As long as its light And you can move fast. Also you can Stay conceled For alot longer. And As for Saying no one will come into the ambush thats why we have daggers to lure them in.

Wouldn't that be kind of cheating?

Dead men don't talk you know.
-95% of people with a flatline think it makes the gun inaccurate; if you are the part of the other 5%, who take the time to sit down and tune it right, put this in your sig.
