Best Shooting Position for a the Paintball Sniper?

Cross legged sitting, utilizing hard cover allows for a lower profile and a quick stand up and escape if needed.

Of the 5 or so common shooting positions, there are some that are most effective and practical.  How does this position stack up?

Have a look at the picture attached to this article.  Have you utilized this paintball sniper shooting position before?  What positions do you us most?  Any better than any other?  Is there an optimal position for accuracy with your paintball sniper rifle?

    Depending on the marker I find putting both of my hands on the trigger frame, elbows down, with the forward arm resting on a stable platform(tree, leg, etc.), while the other is lightly gripping the grip and trigger to be the most versatile. You aren’t too locked into one position yet you aren’t too loose either. Both having the advantage of decent accuracy and the ability to advance or retreat depending on the situation. More times than most
    I find myself facing multiple oppositions and the ability to move quickly is almost a must.

    I’ve got a sitting position that I’ve been working on that allows me to get up in a hurry while still keeping my muzzle facing downrange. I can move from a sitting position, to a kneeling position, to a standing position quickly (or slowly if I want to be stealthier) all in one motion.
    I will post a video on how it is performed on the Facebook page
