Generally without high quality paint-to-barrel match or first strike rounds, Magnifying scopes are near useless. A red dot or reflexive sight is preferred, but a low power 2X scope would be the best if you really wanted a cross-hair scope.

Maximum range in paintball is largely considered 150ft or 50yards, nothing that you would need a magnifying scope for are you can easily see that far with your eyes alone. Beyond that, paintballs are not the most accurate things either so even with really good paint and a really good barrel, a crosshair scope will only be telling you where the paint "might" go. The only way I would recomend a crosshair scope or magnification is if you are using first strike rounds as they will be more accurate and give you more range

You want something with a thicker shell than tournament grade paint, as all mechanical guns can be a bit rough with paintballs. Any local sporting goods store brands (besides monsterball) will work fine.

A regulator or expansion chamber firstly. Then a quality ($60) non flatline/Apex barrel is a good addition. You can go for a 20 inch, but only if you actually use a bi-pod and don't try to run and gun. Then a red dot or reflex sight helps to line up shots quickly. A butt-stock and remote line also helps make shouldering from prone easier. A magnifying Scope will only give you tunnel vision, not to mention being too accurate for paintballs, much less paintballs from an A5.

All said for, The A5 is not a great platform for a sniper rifle. Besides being a hammer valve with a physical disruption velocity adjuster, The cyclone feed takes a few shots sometimes to get a round in, which can be fatal for anyone looking for a one shot kill.

What is the best gun in blackops?

The best assault rifle is in fact the AK-47. The best sub machine gun is the AK-74U or the MP63. I can't give a sniper the best sniper award because they are all good. I can give suggestions though. When you choose a sniper don't use the heat sensor ones. and replace the scope on them with the AOCG scope. The AOCG scope is accurate and you can still keep your good view versus have the sniper scope on and limiting you to seeing just one area. So yes, if anything exchange the regular sniper scopes for the AOCG scope and you'll be getting 20+ kills easily. Then you have to think. Not everything is the best for everyone so honesty this an opinion. So theres what I think are the best. Hope I helped.

In Call of Duty how to kill sniper?

The best way to kill a sniper is to snipe him yourself! Although this may sound stupid this is the easiest way. Supposing your target is in a sniper post first you must find a place where no-one else is and where you can get a clear shot through to the sniper then use your scope and get him!!! Sources:I got 3 headshots on the same guy by using this method.
