Topics I've Started
12 November 2008 - 03:36 PMOk so here it goes. I have been playing for about 7 years. I started out in woodsball, moved to tourney, then back to woodsball, and now I am getting into scenario play. I have always considered myself more of a commander/ghost flanker sniper (uh oh, the S word lol) in the past, but in the last few games I have played I have kinda had to change positions depending on who was playing and with what gear. I have started to like the versatility of the Sabre position (commander is still my primary though) and would like some advice on how to gear my kit more towards the Sabre role to make myself more effective. Here is what I have now:
BT 4 Banshee
SP Ion, upped for speedball
04 AC Prostock
Tactical Harness (holds 4 100 rd pods and a couple grenades, radio, map)
BDU's (can't really afford all of the Spec Ops Digi stuff, although it is nice)
JT Camo goggles
Empire Reloader B
68/3000 HPA tank
Cheap Walmart 2way radio
So I guess my questions are directed more towards my Marker setup. I already know about barrels, stocks, handguards, etc.
1) Is an Egrip worth it? I like having the ability to fire 13bps but I don't shoot that fast unless I have to.
2) Is the Ripclip worth it? My reloader is fast enough but I would like to have a lower profile hopper.
3) Do you guys feel weight makes a big difference? My Banshee is pretty heavy, but I'm not exactly a small guy either.
These may seem like stupid questions but I am asking them in relation to a long (8+) hour scenario situation, because I am used to 30 min to 1hr games. Thanks for your help in advance.
11 November 2008 - 07:33 PMHey guys I have a woodgrain BT Banshee for sale, only been played with once. I don't have my camera with me or I'd post some pics, but send me a PM and I will try to send you some. $200 OBO or will take SOME trades. Guys this marker is in excellent condition. For trades, I would like either a Tac 8 or Ion Longbow kit... I just have too many markers and would like to either get a sidearm or upgrades for my Ion.
28 February 2008 - 08:21 PMHey guys. I just need some opinions. My A5 was stolen while I was away at college, and I really don't want to have to spend all that money on a new A5 and all the mods I had before. I was looking at the Spyder MR2 which is on sale for $149 somewhere. What are your opinions on this marker... does it perform well enough to be used for the Sniper position? Also is there any way I could put a reg on the marker and still keep the milsim look? Ok that's the first part of my post... the second question I have is: I already have a 2k4 mechanical Autococker, but it is glossy silver (nickel I think is the official color). Is there any way I could modify the Autococker to be a good scenario marker, be it changing the body, adding a stock (if any are even available) or anything else? I'm kinda lost without my Tippmann but like I said they get pretty expensive to mod and I don't really want to spend that much money again. Thanks for your help.
16 January 2008 - 01:15 PMHey guys I know I haven't posted much on this forum but I have been a paintball sniper for quite a while now (about 6 years). I was looking through the posts and I see where a lot of people ask which setup is best for a paintball sniper. To clear this up, and this is only my opinion but I think others will back me, the setup doesn't matter at all. The only thing that matters as far as setup is color of your equipment. You don't want any flashy silver or chrome stuff. For example, I have a SP Ion that I use for speedball, recball, and scenario. It has the speed I need to get out of tight situations, but yet it is accurate and quiet enough that I can make those tight one shot one kills. I play as an ambush sniper btw, so when I say osok I mean let the enemy walk just past your position and pick them off from the back to the front one at a time, taking one shot per player. The key to being a sniper is skill and patience. You have to be able to wait for hours at a time for that perfect shot, and if it doesn't happen, oh well, there will be more games. Anyways just my 2cents
28 November 2007 - 10:30 AMHi I'm trying to make a switch from speedball to woodsball. I have an Ion and not a lot of money. The Ion has been upped pretty well, with an aftermarket barrel, low rise feedneck, trigger, reg, etc. Anyways, does anybody know of a camo tape kit or something so I can make my bright blue Ion more stealthy? Thanks
