Long range paintball guns usually shoot out to over 150 feet. Their accuracy at longer distances becomes progressively less accurate as the distance increases. Most long range paintball guns are designed for quick firing with more accuracy being a mere secondary concern. This makes it difficult for the individual looking to play an ideal sniper position with their paintball gun.
Best Long Distance Paintball Rifles
There are a number of different variables that will have to be considered before purchasing any range paintball gun. The first is the caliber of the gun used. This may affect the type of ammunition used in the paintball guns. The second variable is the type of gas used in the gun.
Gas powered guns use a liquid fuel that contains nitrogen. This is used to ignite the pellets. It causes them to expel out in all directions. These types of pellets do not fly straight out; rather they travel a long way before coming to rest and exploding again in the air. The last important factor is the weight and size of the paintball gun. If one is playing at a distance of two or more miles they should have a gun that is suitable to this kind of terrain.
