Since we have velocities down to a science, I'm wondering if we've got anyone who's calculated the ballistic coefficients of various darts? My thinking is we could, with this variable, calculate ranges based on FPS and wind, since we know Stefans and full lengths weigh roughly 1g and Megas weigh 3.

Support class: Yes, I'm that machine gunner that straps ten magazines/buckets of HIRs to himself and rocks a highly modded Rapidpistol or a stock Nemesis, usually keeping the other team's heads down so you can pick him off with your overvolted Stryfe. You're welcome.

IIRC this is basically what Boltsniper did here. Doom has likely also done some work in the area, though I can't readily recall any posts that would show it.

A similar discussion was going on at r/nerf recently. The discourse there might be worth a look.
