In Topic: Umd Dart Of War 3

08 July 2010 - 12:07 AM

I went last year and had a blast. It was definitely a change of pace from typical outdoors wars.

A lot of people who attended last year didn't have modded blasters. The ones who did mostly had the most basic mods - AR removals, CPVC barrels, etc. It didn't put them at a disadvantage most of the time unless they were in the atrium or the mezzanine (and even then, there's plenty of cover).

You could use a +bow, I suppose, but honestly I think it would be pretty unwieldly. A lot of the action happened in tight corridors, narrow hallways and stairwells. Being able to maneuver and having a high rate of fire will probably be more important than range alone.

As for restrictions, I think they do it on a case-by-case basis.

+bows and similar have been used to great effect in prior Dart of Wars. Yes, there's plenty of tight corners that lead to intense shootouts, but there are also several long corridors and a wide-open atrium perfect for taking potshots at range.

Yes, he did. There was nothing critically important that couldn't have been handled by a PM to the OP going "Hey, are you still working on this? If so, here are some things that could help..."

Does not compute. With the stock spring, holding onto the plunger is a surefire way to keep it from firing.

That said, the 'recall' is a good opportunity for those of us with 1st-gen Recons. It means that we won't have to build some hideous PVC contraption just to add a spring.

Ok, I have this " Heavy Duty" Silicone Spray at Wal*Mart(CRC brand) and I found out that the propellant is Acetone based. Don't get it, fucked up my nitefinder. Can anyone recommend a good silicone Spray?(I saw CS type, but I can't find it.) Most Silicone sprays I find are petroleum based silicone sprays. Is this fine?

Most silicone sprays have some sort of hydrocarbon-based propellant because of their volatility (i.e. they evaporate almost instantly). Unless you're doing something to prevent the propellant from evaporating quickly, like spraying a massive amount into the plunger tube at point-blank range, it shouldn't remain in contact long enough to do any damage.

With the pipe cutters, also make sure that you're using the right blade. A blade for cutting metal will just as easily cut PVC, but a blade for cutting PVC will not yield good results on metal.
