Whatever feels best in your hands. Personally I really prefer any macrolineless gun. I shoot a g6r and love it

Whatever marker will put paintballs down range. There is no "snake" marker, it's whatever works best for you.

I think the invert mini is a good low end gun but it is very compact
Always happy to help!

Honestly, I would go spool valve. Mainly just to have a fully enclosed system. A vast majority of the time it makes absolutely zero difference. However, if you're playing paintball that one day where there's a mud puddle in the snake and you need to do work, then having that enclosed system helps. Honestly since I'm no fan of the Proto Reflex Rail, I don't know what I would do. Of the markers I am familiar with I would probably go for a used Geo2, but if you're stuck with new you might consider an Planet Eclipse Etha. I don't have any experience with the Etha so take that with a grain of salt though. If money is no object, I would go with a Geo3. If you're on a budget, I would recommend a used PM8 or a new GoG eXTCy.

with snake it's nice to have an enclosed bolt because with your diving and crawling it's easy to get dirt in your breach if you have a stacked tube. so inline poppets or spools would be my gun for snake. and the invasion is pretty good. with snake you want a tighter setup so a slightly shorter barrel could be a little helpful in that department

The tightest setup I can think of for similar prices to the axe,drone dx with a 50/4500 or even a 68 if you want the capacity You could also get a smaller barrel, but i tend to like 14 inches no matter what I'm playing. Also, another reason spools and inlines are good for snake is they are quieter. I've had plenty of situations where Ive been in snake and shot both dorritos out, just because they couldn't hear me shooting over the sound of my friend with an etek :P
Look at used highend from a couple of years ago if on a budget. If not on as much of a budget, a few people at my field have luxes and they are reaaallly quiet. DMs are also really quiet, and you can pick them up for pretty cheap

My laugh but last time I played snake I shoot a empire Trracer with a 14" lapco bigshot assault, tech t barrel sizer kit. Had a Petrol fore grip/bipod on it. Hopper was a sport shot and tank was a 13ci/3000psi. Worked awesome for me lol.

But seriously there is much hate on this board for the gun But if you can pick one up Cheap used I'd strongly recommend the Dangerouse Power E1. With a few up grades it's the tightest setup I have ever shot. Only thing I have upgraded on mine is I put on a clamping feed neck. If you want it for ramping play then you would also need a different board as stock it's only really semi auto (personally I hate ramping and refuse to use it).

I hope you're kidding.
Personally I go with poppits for anything because of personal preference- get a etek or an ego if you have the money.

Why I actually love my E1. I have had it for over a year now had no issues with it that a bit of lube did not clear up. I play woods ball, speed ball, scenario. It works great for all. And original poster asked for advice on a good small shooter that work good in the snake.

There for I offered my opinion. The E1 is tiny is a great semi auto shooter and stupid simple. Add in the fact that being a dump valve spoolie the bolt and internals are enclosed it works great in the snake were ya can end up with lots of dirt and grime flyin. Can't tell ya how much time I spent crawling in the dirt with that gun in hand.

Any gun works for any position. A small, single tube gun might be best though just for a smaller profile.

whatever gun gives you the smallest profile and yet you feel comfortable with ... you gotta be able to run with it, dive with it, so balance in your grip is important. snake players targets are generally very close, so you can get away with a much shorter barrel, no bigger than 6"... you aren't gonna be shooting all the way downfield, generally just a bunker away. a small tank and short tank reg, and a hopper that is not a monstrosity.

Any gun will work in any position, its what you like. As to people saying a sealed body marker, I think that's great for any position. If its super heavy rain or snow and I'm planning on getting down and dirty, I usually reach for one of my shockers or a marker without holes leading to the internals.

I'm trying to get all closed bolt because a group that I play woodsball with likes to shoot people in the back of the marker to try and keep people off the field and gain a numbers advantage. So I would agree closed bolt would be the beat for snake.

I am confused as to what shooting someone in the back of the marker would do to the gun? Ya paint and a bit of shell might find its way inside where the bolt travels but most markers that have a blow back also have a super simple tool less removal of the bolt and about 30s of cleaning with your shirt would put you back into the game. maybe you could argue you would need to relube the bolt but that is another 30s, having to wait to re-spawn would be way more than enough time to clean your bolt.

My next question is, how/why are these people actually hitting the back of other peoples' markers? First off the only way to hit the open bolt from being in front of the person is to have a perfect lob shot (not impossible but unlikely), 2nd way, would be from the side or behind the person. I am assuming they are getting extremely close (like right behind or beside the person) to be able to hit the exact spot where the open bolt is, which in that case, how are they getting so close without getting shot? [bunkering is a possibility but once again unlikely, due the quick nature of a good bunker does not leave time for precision firing, just aim for the back/pack/torso, see the breaks and keep going]

With a stacked tube poppet shell fragments jam up the bolt. That is there mind set. I didn't believe it until I saw it happen a few times. I was under the mind set that the pneumatics would be strong enough to push through the shell but I was wrong.

Also, most people don't do that. Most people go for shooting inside the hopper as it's a much bigger target and the speedfeed opening lets it gum everything up.

Its ENclosed bolt, not closed. Autocockers and Excaliburs are closed bolt, which means that the bolt is forward and closing the breach when at rest.

I play snake and play in tournaments. I use a planet eclipse etek 4 lt. Some people say that it's 2 loud but when I practice paintball I play up and play people that are currently d2/d3/d4 and they are constantly shooting so It doesn't really matter how loudy gun is. And I love my etek 4 and I upgraded it to a hush bolt and it made it even better. So long story short check out he Etek 4.

That sounds like a good way to get shot in the nuts or the throat if word gets out you're doing that intentionally. Don't cry if someone bunkers you and stitches your back up in revenge.

No I read your posts, the way I took it was that this was something you had plans on when you popped up with the D.A.M. and First Strike rounds. I'm sorry I misunderstood you. You should shoot those guys in the nuts.

Alls good. And the fact that they're not gonna be able to get within like 300 feet of will be epic enough. I already know they are gonna be crying that I have an advantage first strikes. And BTW welcome to techpb.

Whatever marker will put paintballs down range. There is no "snake" marker, it's whatever works best for you.

I would do this^ and I would go for anything macroless. Also, look for something nice and tight because It is less of a target and you can move around easier.
Doesn't matter what gun you have, how old you are, what paint you shoot, who your up against, how bad of a day you had... All that matters is that your playing paintball now.

Go with Proto Reflex rail if you got the money, It is the same as the Eteck 4 which is better for dorito

Pros of proto:
-quiet
-efficient
-closed in (no internals sticking out
-grips
-asa
-reg
-bolt
-feed neck
Cons:
-little heavy

world cup I did the Axe, stock 12" barrel, Z2 and Ninja 68/4500 pro

super tiny setup for snake

Mike, how do you like the Drone DX? I already watched your review on it but some things have changed that you didn't like about it, such as the price and board settings (PSP mode was fixed).

Also, there is no real specific gun for the snake. Just choose the gun you like and are comfortable with.

The rails are anything but efficient. My 98 almost has the same efficiency
This is exactly what marketing guns has come down too. a dick waving contest. You can say all the stuff you want but until you whip it out wave it around and prove it to the world everyone will doubt you. -bigx

Even though the Invert Mini is a pop-it valve, it does not have any internals sticking out like a stacked tubed gun. This with the super tight set this gun is almost perfect for snake.

Lots of hate is directed towards the mini but I love mine.  If you like the way it feels in your hands, go for it, it is a great shooter for the money.  If you want something more mid end, I'd suggest a drone dx or marq.  High enders new/used would be the geo or victory or dm series
