Question What guns in diff. positions?

Alright, I have a question as to what gun is good per type of player? What I mean is if you are a tape runner, middy or back player what gun would be a good investment? I'm not really talking entry lvl guns but whatever gun you think would be best for that position would greatly be appreciated.

hey, a lot of people i no ask that question. I think it's all personal preference. I'd say if u want to play back, in like a 5 man game or sumthing of that sort, you'd want a gun that can shoot fairly fast and accurate. Being a backman, in my opinion, is being able to be counted on by teammates, laying ****loads of cover fire, and being able to make wise decisions. If u want to play mid or sumthing, like tape runner, then i'd say the same thing. YOu dont need a fast gun, but it would be good for off the break, and stuff. In my case, i play mid, front, tape, back, and i used a mag. Never get a mag. they arent bad, but they arent too reliable. Im gettin a cocker, so itll be all good. But i would say any gun u feel good with and are comfortable with, is fine for u. Just go to the fields and ask people if u can hold there guns and shoot them and crap.
thanx

Any gun will work in any position pending on how well you can use it.

People tend to stress long-distance accuracy in back positions, and ROF in front, mid positions. Still, if you get a consistent marker that you're comfortable with, what REALLY matters is how skilled you are at playing your position, not the gun.

So Phenix, you are located in CNY? So am I. I would be glad to tell you anything you want to know.

I will be at The War Club in Rome http://www.thewarclub.com on Saturday. I will ONLY be there this Saturday for I am selling my gun and won't be playing again till I get my Impulse. Hope to see you there.

Oh, and if you do go I'll be wearing jeans and a 32 Degrees blue flame jersey.

I just realized I made you look like a newbie, sorry bout that.

Try to get a fast and acurante gun like the Sp Shocker or an Autococker. If you play in the front get an Angel or something fast!

But it all comes back to you, what gun do u like to use? Get that gun! I am a front with a cocker!

Everything works!

simple (but biased as hell)...ANGEL for all positions... RELIABLE .... fast and accurate and just all around great gun...as well as great comfort and size....

Please realize that this is my opinion...I don't like giving vaigue answers...So im not gonna "hint" that i like angels for all positions. I'm just gonna tell yu. So please don't flame me or turn this into another "angel vs other guns" thread.

Imp..if you still had your impulse you would have said impulse roxxor angel suxxor!

It doesnt matter you gun for your position, i play front with my cocker but i could play front just as well with an angel, its the player not the gun.

Yeah you did....do you think just ROF means winning a game, any gun is accurate with right paint to barrel match, and you can get about any gun milled down to feather weight.

ore to it than ROF...theres size...feel...never break paint (in my usage it never breaks) and its just reliable i never said other guns werent as good...i am personally in LOVE with cockers and matrixes.... I think they are both good and cokers ahve added plus's like being able to upgrade them like a mofo and so on....i was just saying what i thought was the best...i dont just care about ROF...if i couldnt get an angel i would get a 2k1 cocker and upgrade it like a mofo

I LOVE MY COCKER......!

I PLAY FRONT AND I CAN SHOOT SOMEWHAT FAST (6-8) BPS BUT I'M PLANNING TO GET A HINGE SOON SO I'LL BE READY TO ROCK!
I WOULDNT TRADE MY COCKER FOR ANY OTHER GUN PLUS ITS LIMITED. BUT I WOULD ASK AROUND AT YOUR LOCAL FEILD, CHECK OUT SOME GUNS AT YOUR LOCAL PAINTBALL SUPPLYER AND SEE WHAT THEY SAY. HOPE THIS IS OF SOME HELP.
