In my team I been playing a position called "Beef Supreme". I go on the field and sling frozen meat at people. Go ahead and laugh but is it really any stupider than some of the other proposed ones.



WHAT???? FROZEN MEAT????...?????????

If you ask me I think we need a Anti Tank class but you can already buy tanker patches off the store and there called Razorbacks but squad is absolutly useless its just another commander and any game that allows medics(few and far between) will usually provide medics and honestly do you need a specialist to do that I mean any player can waltz around saying your alive

A position should match what you do. As long as it does that then it is fine for a position name.
These seem a little too specialized and ineffective in every paintball scenario.
The squad should work though. We has a suicide squad that just worked independently from the team in order to gain ground and take more chances in getting eliminated. We just ran out into the thick of it and we had our own set of radios and our leader had an extra set to com with the main leader. It did not work well but it could with practice.

Javelin - Yes.
It's a good idea for a new position, since there are many tank hunters/explosive users out there, including myself. It's also a good name.

Bones - No.
I personally think the idea is kinda cool, but it could be a little too controversial/complicated to be an actual position for SpecOps. There's new rules, the whole honor system thing, etc. In the end, its easier to leave it out.

Calvary - Yes.
It seems like a good idea, since it's simple and the people who man the tanks should get credit.

Squad - No.
It probably shouldn't be its own position, since its more like an add on. It might be used in a HUGE game every once in a while, but for its very own position spot, nah.

This post makes way too much sense lol. I voted yes for the javelin I mean seriously it is on the brigade page. And on the special ops website under find your position I just want to get credit for playing as a tank hunter or as a javelin on the brigade. Its like false advertisement lol

I wonder how many people who think they know it all voted no on this. Just because people are newbs on the forum doesn't mean they are newbs to paintball. But it's ok every one has their vote.

Oh my gosh... :)

Jeeze, I'm no going against noobs. Or noobs on the forums, I'm just wondering. Trust me, I was a newb on this forum, and I posted Grenaider a few times, but now, I find it incredibly worthless. So, learn to deal with it.

Yep, I gotta defend SnV here, because he's absolutely right. Once you've been here for a few months, you'll see so many repeated or worthless positions. Also, you'll start to see why new positions really aren't neccesary because of the already flexible positions.

Question, whats the difference between the regular tank destroyers who carry around their "LAWS", and a Javelin? Or is it just a fancy name? Because you could never make a Javelin system for paintball...

javelin- yeah i think it could work...
bones- NO WAY! a medic and engineer combo? he/she would be a god! it would also bring up the whole honor code thing...plus the name is kinda dorky
cavalry- (by the way not chalvary=nothing or calvary=place where Jesus died.) i think it is too inflexible and select of a class to really work.
squad- okay...right... does anyone else see a problem with this? a squad is a group of people-not a singular person! it isn't a position that one person can fill. imagine a guy walks over to you and says that he is a squad. that's impossible. the end.

They've had the tank hunter position for a while, Spec Ops just didn't put up a sign for it. If you want to log your stats as a tank hunter just do it when you are logging your other stats on your brigade page.

well, seeing as how "squad commander" is already a position.... "squad" has no use other than to be a sect from the original group.

Even if you don't see it on the site, we can still get it for you!!!
No, we won't be stocking .50 caliber anything....

Javelin is a true position one that not just anyone can (or would want to) fill they should get some credit for what they bring to the game. Try these rules for the medic position!
