Muzzle velocity of a fully modded titan: 249 MPH!
While I let that sink in, here are velocities of other guns:
nite finder: 49 mph
SM5k: 192 mph
To answer any questions, testing was done with all sorts of darts(whistler, micro, stefan, etc.) and there was virtually no difference in speed at near-point blank range. Also, priming was done from 15-20 pumps and there was hardly any speed discrepency at so close, 249 mph was the maximum.
Obviously, the differences among darts/pumps become more conspicuous at greater ranges, but regardless, at ~50 ft, any given dart will be moving at least 200 mph. Kinda makes you think twice about...safety goggles?
I'll try hitting my friend up for greater ranged speeds/specific guns if anyone is interested, but i can't guarantee anything.
Any questions and I'll be happy to answer. -Jabs

The combined set is the data from both tests combined together.
I don't really know how this can help us mod better, but i thaught I should share it anyway.

NiteFinder: 71.87 FPS
SM5k: 281.6 FPS
That is a really interesting idea. It just goes to show why Titans and some SM5ks are usually banned at wars. Of course these velocities won't be enough for a dart to penetrate/lodge itself in the skin, but they will draw blood and they'd surely put an eye out.
The moral is: if you're pissed at someone, it's close to being inhumane to shoot them point-blank with a Titan.
