Hey, Arcanum here, reporting for the Rag Tag Riflemen in the Chicago-Land Area. Our clan has always been prone to using stock micros for ammo. Stock micros were ideal for our indoor wars in mine and ShaggyMan's (former nerfhq member) basement. My main arsenal consists of a sm1500, at2k, nf, and lbb all modded. Our ammo could get 70 ft. on average and 90 ft tops. All I have near me is schd. 40 pvc, so when I heard mega stefans were the ammo for it, I went out and bought the materials.
After range testing, my quad barreled sm1500 can consistently get 110 pretty accurately, and my single barreled at2k can get 115 borderline accuracy. Me and about 5 of my friends had an outdoor war at a playground yesterday, and let me tell you, it use to be all about charging, but now everyone is too afraid to get within range of some of our guns. After everyone got used to being hit, they started to suck it up and have some fun. We ended up having a killer time charging for the flag. We had it set up so the pentagon shaped platform held the flag and was a safe zone. So once you got in, you could plot your way out with your partner. It was pretty cool.
We will be having a summer war in June, although we don't have a name for it yet. Hopefully I will be able to get some more of my clan members up on the forums. Although I still enjoy indoor wars, I find outdoor wars require much more skill and are more fun.

Those are pretty steep ranges for mega firing guns. Are you positive those are you're numbers or did you estimate/angle?

I also find that guns shooting at those ranges can lose their appeal in closed in area. If you're playing entirely in the open and everyone is fairly conservative about their fire, it should continue to be ok, but there's nothing like kicking ass with a little bit weaker gun. Gives you some extra skill and a bold fieeling that you actually accomplished something.

Have a good time at whatever you do.

Talio.

I had pre-marked ranges, so the markers may have been off some. I'll see if I can't get more pin point ranges. I'm pretty sure they break one hundred though. Maybe I can also set up a more consistent 90 degree shot alongside my mailbox too. I'll get back on ranges later.

I love outdoor wars. I do agree with Talio, though. There's nothing better than charging at someone with an RF60 (RF20 loaded with sixty shotgun darts) and hitting someone with all sixty darts. It's still necessary to carry a variety of guns, but my RF60's my favorite gun so far. I think outside wars are the best if you have a medium range, medium ROF gun like the Nite Finder. That's the perfect choice.

I understand what you guys are saying, and im not disagreeing. There is definite satisfaction in hitting someone with an unmodded gun just using your skills. We just switch to stock darts when we don't want to dominate because of the gun type.

Edit: Okay sorry for the inaccurate ranges the first time, but both guns do break 100' level shot. Maximum. The sm1500 quad averages about 98' while the at2k single barrel can consistently hit 100'. Still pretty impressive. I also feel that I've perfected my mega stefan making skills.

RF60? How is that made exactly? I'd be interested to know how you made the barrels.

Here you go. It's not really a mod, actually, I just made sixty crazy small shotgun darts and put three down each barrel, so it's just a different ammo type. The only way the gun was actually modded was an air restrictor and peg removal.

I can somewhat believe those ranges, especially since it's a newer mod. Range still doesn't matter too much, all it gives you is a little more accuracy at close range and less time for your opponent to dodge. Although controversially, that really takes some of the fun out of the game.

Have fun,

Talio.

The FDG has never had a LARGE inside war. We are allways outside, and we are looking for a large, public area that we cant damage easily. (no churches ect.) Our wars almost allways have a part that happens in the woods. The woods up here are dense, so its hard to get a good shot sometimes, but its still pretty fun. Then we have the streams/valley/field/woods wars, which are good because they have a bit of everything in them. We REALLY need to get a indoor war going sometime.

Cool, What are the ranges on the "RF60"? Id never believe that the PC and RF20 would create enough air fro that to be useful, but I suppose weighting them correctly could make up for the difference.
