For example, your surrounded, in front of you is a mg, behind you are 2 snipers and 3 soldiers with assault rifle, your playing on easy mode, wouldn't their not be enough bullets? I mean that would take atleast 10 paintball guns to simulate.
There are several models of Gatling gun paintball markers out there. More of a hobbyist type of weapon. Some scenario events may even allow them. Not to mention, there are several markers out there that can fire up to 20 rounds a second. Yes, 20 rounds a second. Of course, that's all electronically controlled by a board in the fore grip.

But this looks awesome. If only I had that much cash.
edit: plus rep Xnine for being a fellow competitive baller and calling everyone babies/sissies lol. just noticed your were in colorado. used to play at blitz all the time.
Oh yeah? Me too. Back when I was 18 I played in the springs, and then Dynamic opened a field out off of Parker/Arapaho rd. Played there quite a bit. Left the game for a few years and played out at Blitz thereafter. Don't play anymore. Finances and my knee can't handle it.

Only time it ever hurt was if you got shot in the knuckles, that was just plain torture. Otherwise I barely felt anything.
I was more into the tournament style play, speedball courses. Woods play was fun occasionally though.
edit; On pain... i remember two shots that I took that actually hurt like hell. I got hit right above the top of my goggles in the forhead, it felt like a godamn rock hit me. My eyes teared up and i checked to see if there was any paint. Nope. Just a little blood. So I continued on.
The second time, was when we were playing in a tourney and I was up against two guys, I took the first guy down and as I was coming around the other lit me up from 3 feet away. My entire side from my shoulder blade to my pants swelled up. HE was under 18 so I couldn't punch him. Come to find out he was running hot (they marked him at 340 FPS) and thus we won the round since he was cheating. He was also kicked out of the tourney.
Anyway, back on topic: I think the simulator is pretty groovy, but wonder how it works with vaulting over objects or sliding?Edited by X-Nine - 10/18/11 at 6:45am
