24 December 2007 - 08:46 PMThis tactic doesn't really apply to paintball unless you are planning on destroying everything and burning down the field.
That'd be a way to delay the team. Walls of fire are always good for blocking access.
A better example of Scorched Earth would be the US Marines in Iraq. As their convoys passed empty Iraqi tanks in villages, often an Iraqi soldier dressed in civilians clothes would jump in it after they had passed, setting up a perfect ambush. So what the Marines started doing was destroying any tanks, trucks, or supplies they wouldn't need so the Iraqis wouldn't be able to use them.
You're talking about a fighting retreat. Also a great tactic, one that's gotten me out of a fair amount of sticky situations. It helps because as you retreat to your next line of defense, you have intel on what kind of OpFor you'll be facing, whilst the other team doesn't.
23 December 2007 - 06:30 PMWell I have an A-5, and I wanted to get a folding stock for it. Right now I have a butt cap on the C02 tank for a stock, but I've been wanting to inverse the tank forward and buy a folding stock. I guess I'll probably go with a sight raiser.

21 December 2007 - 11:29 PMCool, good for you. But don't sick yourself into being only a sniper. Try out playing everywhere. Sure, sniping is fun, but it's fun to be other things too.
21 December 2007 - 11:26 PMI had an idea for sniper qualifications, because someone on my team thinks he's sniper material so we are going to test him , There will be a pod with 6 paintballs in it at one end of the field and he will start at the other end with an empty marker, he'll have to sneak his way to the pod whilst avoiding the patrol (6 guys 4 of which have full auto's ) who all have ammo, load his marker and eliminate each patrol member with one shot.I know this generally doesn't happen in a normal scenario game but if the training is harder than the actual thing it will seem alot easier when he actually plays.
I disagree with this. This isn't real life. There isn't the "One shot one kill" motto going on. You can't expect any player to hit 6 people with 6 paintballs. That's unrealistic. It's not a bullet. If your sniper is only taking one shot at a person in a game, he's being foolish.
If I sounded harsh, it's because I have a pet peeve of people trying to clump paintball snipers with real snipers. I don't have a problem with the position, I just feel that people think that the sniper position is all glory, and that they'll be the heroes, making the one shot to save the day. Well, guess what? The best snipers are team players, and use tactics like ambushing with your squad and ghost flanking. Paintball snipers who wander around by themselves are ineffective.
