this is kind of hard to answer because i dont want to say that you can only snipe in woodsball/scenario play, but i dont want to say you cant in speedball... so i will just say that you DONT have to have a long barrel but you do have to have patience and a steady hand. my definition of a sniper is someone who can shoot a target in one shot and be accurate with it that means from 20ft. to 200ft. I really dont care wither way its sniping.
I will be more thorough with my answer later since i have to leave in about 2 minutes and have no time but if you want to argue with my answer please...please feel free... for i love to argue..
