Only a little bit of elevation (up and down) is needed to compensate for 
ground effects and to help zero in on the target.  Most of the time, a 
horizontal position will work fine, but it's always nice to raise or 
lower the gun as the range to the target changes.  Paintballs have a 
noticable, although not large, drop-off over their effective range and a 
little bit of arc helps increase the range.
