Camo paint you can really custimize it to create shadows on your face that breakup your face very well. whereas a camo face mask having randomly place colors may put them in the wrong place such as light color on pronounced area or vice versa which will actually make a difference believe it or not. Also for me its not so much about the shooting aspect of sharpshooting, but more so the field tactics and camouflage, idc if I dont ever have a shot, just so long as no one sees, even when they walk feet in front of me. To me that is much more satisfying than a long range kill. So time isnt really an object in other words, I think its smarter to have better camo.
