so i have decided to build a sniper for woodsball. i chose tippman because of the flatline barrel,feedneck on the side of the gun and the rails.

Which gun should i use?
which barrel?
how big are the rails on tippmans? 12mm,20mm and 3/8"(whatever that is in mm)?
what kind of scope?

You cant make a sniper as a thought of being able to shoot lonr range but you could sneak around and get them by surprise. But if you are going to tey get a apex barrel and you can relly use scopes becuase it would be hard to see through with you mask on and paintballs are to unpredictable.

i know a sniper wouldnt shoot further i just want to make on for the fun of it and so i can get a "one shot one kill?" instead of spraying 2 balls hoping for hit. the reason i want a sniper is mainly just for hell of having a sniper :) but i want to make one that will actually work as a sniper. Would it help if i got first strike rounds?

First strikes rounds would work but you would have to get a special gun and then a converson kit. A apex would give you more range and you dont have to put $8 for a tube of paintballs.

Any marker can be a sniper. No marker is really more accurate than any other.

Options you have:

1) Quiet sniper - Using a fast and quiet marker to take the enemy team by surprise.

2) Long range - Use either an A5 Flatline (98 custom sucks), or any marker with an Apex tip. Problem? Long range paintballs don't usually break on target, so spray and pray comes into effect again.

It's called a cyclone feed, and it comes with the marker. Why would it be 12,000$?

I say get a pump!

98 pro(the one with cyclone). less bulky than a5 and x7. go with cp tactical .679 with apex tip. a standard acog scope would be good. the gun wouldnt be accurate enough for pinpoint accuracy.

or go with a rap4

I'm going to be honest with you about this that in my personal opinion the only true sniper in paintball is a Tiberous Arms gun(T9,T8,T4) with First Strike rounds since the rounds go so far, and they have an effiect loading system for it.

Sniping in paintball is less about accuracy and more about element of surprise.

I think a 98c is the best. Just put a new barrel, stock and a walmart red dot and call it good.

You can get a pretty nice set of night vision goggles for $300-400.

They won't be military grade, but you can see in the dark with them.

As for the gun, if you REALLY want to shoot as far as possible, get a T9 that's First Strike ready.

Seriously instead of wasting your money on "upgrades" for a Tippmann they in all honesty just weigh it down, save your money and get a ghillie suit and practice creeping and sneaking around. Don't buy a scope or red dot because they are completely useless in paintball (sans first strike). If you really want that one shot one kill from a distance you need to go with a T9. The apex and flatline will not give you the accuracy you're looking for.

Once upon a time I used to play woodsball with a CAR stock, M-16 style foregrip, vertical grip and sights and other accessories, thinking it would be fun... Eventually you learn it's all just dead weight and instead go play with something stripped down, simple and effective.

When I play woods now I either use
1) Pro-Lite w/ 12" J&J, Apex tip, and 12v Revy
2) BT-4 w/ e-grip, APE board, 12" J&J, Apex tip, and Halo B

In the woods I still use a a5 with a flatline or J&J ceramic with apex, 6 position stock, folding front grip, green/red dot scope, tactical barrel shroud, m16 carry handle and every internal mod possible. All said and done this is just a very expensive heavy awkward marker but it looks cool and is a lot of fun to play with.

If you're trying to snipe in paintball, don't get a Tippmann. If high pressure blow back markers are anything, they're loud. Paintball sniping is more about being quiet and stealthy than real sniping (because of the equal range of markers).
Find a good low pressure marker and a good barrel kit. Apex and Flatline barrels aren't good for sniping because they are less accurate. Taking a liquid filled object and spinning it will increase range, but the accuracy suffers. The flatline, being unported, is also one of the loudest barrels around. An A5/98C/X7 with a Flatline is easy to pick out on the field.

The Tiberius markers (especially the 9.1) with First Strike rounds are pretty good for sniping. I haven't personally used one, but have played with a couple guys shooting them. They were making shots that I would have needed a dozen ball to make.

Cocker based pumps are also pretty good because they're really quiet.

Mag with a T2W stock and a ghillie wrap. Preferably with a q-loader if you really want to do that sniper stuff.

If you want to be a sniper, you REALLY need FS rounds. Other than that, you cant really be a sniper. You can be a "ninja" but no sniper.
You can pick up a used T9 or I think there is a kit to use FS with the T8. Buy used, it will be cheap.

OR you can do what I am doing.

I recently got done building a cocker pump. It is very quiet, and is a nice compact setup if you stick a 9oz (or 13cu) tank and a 50 rd hopper. I am now working on a system to quickly be able to attach a spring loaded magazine onto where the feedneck normally is. This magazine would allow me to use FS rounds. I would then mount a scope or red dot. This way is best IMO because:
1) you can use both regular paint and FS rounds. They are up close, shoot with the regular paint, you got a good long shot, slap on the mag.
2) The pump action really makes it feel more "sniper" like- you really get into it more.
3) It can be done very cheap. You can pick up a used right feed cocker pump for 100 or less. The right feed allows you to mount a scope.

As people said... to be a paintball sniper you need one of two things:

- Greater range and accuracy: First trike rounds are your only option, very expensive but do work.

- Greater stealth: Great camo and a quiet marker/barrel

LoL @ the Flatline comment... yeah you lower your accuracy and extend your range, but they are LOUD. At scenario games I can remember at least three times were I basically kept yelling at someone to leave my bunker/tree because they were shooting a flatline and I was worried about permanent hearing loss.
