Paintball Gun Question

Unread postAuthor: jr » Sun Jul 06, 2008 8:17 pm

I just got a new paintball gun last sunday. It is an odyssey rpm. It has 4 mods on the electonic trigger 1:semi-auto:19bps 2: 11bps ramping 3: 13 bps ramping 4: 15.4 bps ramping.

What is the "ramping"? and how is it useful in play?

will post pics after I clean the gun today.

Ramping is a feature in some electronic guns that automatically shifts the mode of fire from semi-automatic to fully automatic as long as the trigger is pulled at a specified rate. Ramping can be difficult to detect, both because it may not be consistent or easily observable by a human. Ramping modes can also be hidden in the software, such that a marker will fire in legal semi-auto mode when being tested, but in an illegal ramping mode by the player.

To counter the problems with enforcing semi-auto rules, some leagues allow a specific ramping mode. The rule specifies a minimum time between shots of 66 milliseconds (approx. 20 shots per second), and that no more than one shot may be fired for the first three trigger pulls. The rate of fire is enforced using a device called a PACT Timer, a standard firearms timing device that measures the time between shots. The following are common league specific ramping modes. Many high-end markers have these modes preset in their firmware:

* PSP Ramping - Ramping kicks in after 3 shots; player must maintain 5 bps to remain ramping. Rate of fire cannot exceed 13.33 bps.
* NXL Ramping - Ramping kicks in after 3 shots; player needs only to hold down the trigger to maintain fully automatic fire. Rate of fire cannot exceed 13.33 bps.
* Millennium Ramping - Ramping kicks in after 6 bps; player must maintain 6 bps to maintain fully automatic fire. Rate of fire cannot exceed 12 bps. (This is true in some but not all markers.)

its from wiki sorry its so freaking long :x
