The gear you have....as it is....use it. Got an Mr1? Great, play with it, know it, and be able to use it. Have an old set of cammies and not a ghillie suit? Great, play with those.
Let me tell you this, some of the most ineffective 'snipers' I've seen in this game have been all dolled up in their bush-suits with sights systems on their markers and the mindset that "I'm a sniper, I'm awesome!"
The basic skills of the paintball 'sniper' are the same basic skills that every woodsballer worth his salt posess, unless you're the type of guy that runs screaming through the woods with an electro marker keeping the paint manufacturers in business.
We all utilize stealth in our planbooks, we all try to be sneaky and take the best shots, we all do our best to observe and eliminate the opposition from concealed positions. My point is, ignore the whole 'sniper' thing right now. Play on and with your team, get the gist of how things are done, THEN, if you still decide to 'snipe' decide from there what is worth spending money on. If you did what I suggested correctly, you'll realize that you might not need any modifications to your setup at all.

What would really help would be a red dot sight, and a good barrel. You could get away with out the barrel, but they are cheap so just get one. The best thing you can do is learn your gear and read up on tactics. Also, get paint that matches your barrel really well.

One good thing about your gun is that it comes standard with a stock, this means you have increased your stability. I have used a friends MR1 once, and I liked how it shot and felt, the only upgrade I could think of to improve the gun would be a barrel. As of now I cannot recommend any to you, as I do not know what paint you use, or what barrel works best with your gun. All I can say is reasearch different barrels (don't be stupid and get a 21 inch, 16 max), and train on moving like a sniper. Good Luck!

exactly. you shoot a paintball. the paintball travels from the breach into the barrel. thus, the paint is in the barrel, the flatline is not accurate.
i just proved what drummer said based on what you said
Evryone that I have ever talked to about the flatline, say DON'T. I usually kinda listen when everyone says the same thing.

If you notice that your first ball isn't always where you want it to go, and you have to end up taking two or three more shots to make a simple elimination - some field practice is definitely in order. At the same time, if you are sure of your skills and you just have a hard time with doing things on the fly - you might come to the point where you -know- that your next upgrade will be a paintball marker sight (electronic, holographic, or occluded is up to you). Research what sight does what and reflect on how that will improve your game. Take the option that benefits you the most.
You will find yourself going through this process repeatedly, looking at different aspects of your gear -and- your playstyle. Make the changes you see as necessary and move on. Then reflect back on how those changes brought you from where you were, to where you are, and decide if they were helpful. If not - ditch what doesn't work and keep on moving forward in your search for what you consider to be your personal best.
Hope this helps.
So what you're saying is to mediforicaly mold my self to my equipment? not bad advice. oh, and btw, i got a 12" barrel for my b-day and when i took it out to test it, it goes about 20'-30' and goes on a very sharp down arch. My stock barrel is better than my new barrel. (Plus it might be because it a viewloder barrel). I have a onesie camo suit and i'm planning to make a home made ghillie suit. i'm gonna try to carve in to my stock to see my iron sit better and i did have a red dot sight on it but doesn't fit!! What's your opinion on Smoke/Paint Grenades? And i would like to get a remote. i'm really getting this thru my thick skull, improve your skill first, then your equipment.

a remote is one of the areas of debate in the paintball world that i've seen, it makes your gun much lighter but you lose your tank stock idea, it's a whatever you like kind of idea, imo not that important right now for you
