honestly, your going to want something you feel comfortable with, being "smaller" isn't always better, if your gun is too small it will be annoying when you have to shoulder it and move up...

What guns have you shot that you enjoyed working with?

A tip i learned a while ago, but just started doing this weekend is this. It seems easy but it is actually difficult to get your mind set to do it in game. Simply this, if no one is looking down taple on the enemy team, go. Keep moving, it helps alot, especially because once you get far up, you will be able to look cross field and destroy the dorito side.

No no with the G5. Or any of the G series.
Tips for snake
Stay alive as much as you can.
Headcheck constantly, without your gun. Communication and closing the game is the main job for the snake player.

Head checking without a gun a lot is a bad habit... If you do it right, you should be able to head check with your gun at the same speed as without.

Make sure you have a reliable person watching tape, and also try to work with him. When you first get into snake, you don't have to look for kills right away. And if there isn't paint coming from tape, move up. Get as far as you can as fast as you can. If there is someone watching tape/in your corner, try not to worry about tape, just focus on looking inside.

This. The goal is to do damage before they know you're there so you're going to need to be able to make shots and get back into cover quick. You should already know where you need to be in the snake to hit various positions from walking the field. If you pop your head up be pointing in the right direction and ready to fire. As far as setup, the only thing I'd say is carry about three pods. You probably won't need more than that and the extra bulk will just hinder you.

Key word: reliable
W/out a solid corner, you can end up in trouble quickly.

Learn how to crawl real fast and low like, like that spider that lives under your fridge. Get confident shooting switch, because you'll need it if you want to get really good.

Actually the G5 is a very nice marker, as long as you know how to take care of it. Use a thin grease or a thick oil (not dp40) and it works fine. The trigger is also very nice compared to other guns of the price range, as is the board.

Protip. Buy a shovel. Dig and Pile REPEAT until desired effect is achieved. Builds upper body and character. Bitches love upper body and character.

Be confident in your dives, for the love of god get quality padding, get familiar with your corner player, and communicate to the rest of your team. Snake is probably one of the toughest positions on the body to play. Technique is key to saving your knees and hands.

Maybe he is not trolling and being genuinely honest. Not everyone loves the axe or the extcy you know.Stop calling other people noobs when you only have 100 posts yourself.
