The Paintball Sniper Gear List

A Listmania! list by Doug K.
The list author says: "My name is Doug. I'm the lead writer and instructor at http://www.tacticalpaintballsniper.com. Thought it'd be fun to put together a realistic, no B.S. gear list for the paintball sniper. None of these stupidly over-the-top, "longer than a moose rifle" markers or ridiculously bulky and unnecessary tactical harnesses. Or the full-blown Bigfoot ghillie suits. Sheesh. Here it is. Real, from the field equipment list for paintball snipers."
Tippmann SL-68 II Paintball Pump Gun + 13ci Myth + 50rd Hopper
1.  Tippmann SL-68 II Paintball Pump Gun + 13ci Myth + 50rd Hopper by Tippmann Paintball
The list author says:
  "The SL-68 II was recently re-released by Tippmann and it's badder than ever.  This is a one shot, one elimination type of marker.  DO NOT try to go up against full autos with this thing if you're alone.  Call in the calvary and the heck outta dodge.  But use this workhorse to make those stealthy shots from the shadows and fade away."

VForce Morph Paintball Airsoft Goggle Mask Green/Black
2.  VForce Morph Paintball Airsoft Goggle Mask Green/Black by VForce
The list author says:
  "I have beat the SNOT outta my V-Force Morph goggles.  All day, never-stop vision with no, that's ZERO, fogging.  Easy to replace lenses, HUGE field of vision, a handful of lense tintings and you've got yourself the BEST gogs on the market."

ScentBlocker S3 Tactical Pants Mossy Oak Brush
3.  ScentBlocker S3 Tactical Pants Mossy Oak Brush by Scent Blocker
The list author says:
  "The Mossy Oak Brush pattern is an outstanding commercial hunting pattern for almost year round coverage.  This new tactical shirt includes side vents, reinforced elbows and dual breast pockets plus anti-bacterial scent control."

McNett Tactical CamoVat Cravat Camouflage Triangular Bandage
4.  McNett Tactical CamoVat Cravat Camouflage Triangular Bandage by McNett
The list author says:
  "I never hit the field without a bandana.  Wiping sweat (not paint!), cleaning barrels, visual distraction for booby traps, keeping cool, camouflaging my bald head, the list doesn't end.  In fact, I've written a book entitled "101 Ways to Use a Bandana".  No joke, Joe."

Merrell Men's Moab Ventilator Mid Hiking Boot
5.  Merrell Men's Moab Ventilator Mid Hiking Boot by Merrell
The list author says:
  "Merrel shoes rock.  The Moab is a light shoe with outstanding traction on the Vibram sole.  I also use the Merrel Pivot Lace.  Also a great shoe.  The only downside is if you need ankle support.  You sacrifice weight for support but that might be a good trade if your ankles need some bracing.  Otherwise, wear this shoe.  (And, P.S., I obsess about coloration.  Every shoe I own is tan and brown.)"

Mcnett Camo Form Protective Camouflage Wrap
6.  Mcnett Camo Form Protective Camouflage Wrap by McNett
The list author says:
  "The second pattern we recommend is the Brush pattern put out by Mossy Oak.  Their Brush pattern was designed as an open space pattern for grassy areas, chaparral, sage and prairies.  It's base coloration is highly universal.  When you add a bit of local coloration, you WILL disappear. McNett tape is an outstanding & very affordable way to camouflage your marker, pods or mask quickly and easily."

GXG 50 Round Paintball Speed Tube Pods Black - 6 Pack
7.  GXG 50 Round Paintball Speed Tube Pods Black - 6 Pack by GxG
The list author says:
  "When I'm in my sniper role, I haul one pod into the field along with a full 50 round hopper.  And I use 50 round pods.  That's a hundred rounds.  Sheesh.  2 tango's per round.  Do the math."

Empire Extreme Rage Flexi-Swab Squeegee - Blue
8.  Empire Extreme Rage Flexi-Swab Squeegee - Blue by Extreme Rage
The list author says:
  "My pod goes in one of my cargo pockets, my squeegee in the other.  I don't bother with the rubber squeegees.  I use the fluffy sheepskin ones.  Love it.  One swab.  In, out, done."
$7.51   Used & New from: $2.95

Tippmann Booby Bomb Grenade
9.  Tippmann Booby Bomb Grenade by Tippmann
The list author says:
  "I always have one grenade on my person.  When & where I play, they count as hits.  It's my "get your arse outta the fire" insurance.  Doesn't always work but it's saved my bacon more than once.  MENTAL NOTE: Pball grenades have a shelf life!  The latex rubber neck kinks up and dries causing it to fail by not opening when it bounces.  SUCK FACTOR of TEN.  Best option, make your own."

10.  Major Paintball Master Mine Paint Mine by Major Paintball
The list author says:

8213 Army Digital Camo Face Paint Creme Tubes
11.  8213 Army Digital Camo Face Paint Creme Tubes by Rothco
The list author says:
  "I don't wear gloves in the field.  So I camo my hands up with face paint.  I prefer Hunter Specialties 3-Pack but Rothco will do."

Hunters Specialties Crème Tube Makeup Kit
12.  Hunters Specialties Crème Tube Makeup Kit by Hunter's Specialties
The list author says:
  "I don't wear gloves in the field.  So I camo my hands up with face paint.  I prefer Hunter Specialties 3-Pack but the Rothco ACU 3-pack will do in a pinch."

CamelBak Camo ThermoBak 100-Oz. Hydration System
13.  CamelBak Camo ThermoBak 100-Oz. Hydration System by CamelBak
The list author says:
  ""Got milk?"  That's so 1994.  "Got water?" is the new question.  Proper hydration (2L per day or more under difficult conditions) leads to increased reaction time, steady hands, clear vision and tactical thinking.  I use this 100 oz set up.  No extra pockets but keeps me watered."
