paint counter

yeah i was thinking about this and im not sure if they have this or not but most of the gun say they can shoot however many bps and its hard to tell when your shooting so fast i think there should be a counter on most guns and also a memory to record the amount and be able to test things out

A memory unit would be nice on electric hoppers. It would nice to look back and see what your highest rof was.

i believe ricochet loaders have ball counters on them, not sure though

I know E2s and Egos say how fast you are shooting on the LCD, I'm pretty sure they have it on a lot of high end guns.

I know Timmies have shot counters.
TriggerHappy1

Most if not all high end guns with LCD screens have BPS counters and I think shot counters. I would like to have a counter to tell me how many balls I shoot total so I could get a gamely average, or just keep track.

Angels with LCD screens have ROF, a trip counter(every shot ever taken) and a cycle counter(this can be resest so you knw when to oil/grease the gun)

There once was a marker that told you your FPS. I beleive it was made by Smart parts, but it never be came popular.

Yes. It's still a good idea, though.

I wish Halo Bs had shot counters, but there is no screen, just a button.

I wish there was a hopper with a ball counter(how many you have left.) It's hard to see through some hoppers.

Halo Bs have a clear hopper lid. I can easily see how many balls i have left. The stock hoppers are terrible because they are whitened so it becomes harder to see how many you have.

Clear hopper lids work, but it would be a lot easier to look at a screen that shows you the exact number instead of either counting or guessing the number of balls left.
Night Hawk

the only problem with that is unless u count every ball that was originaly in there the hopper whould never know many is left

now if u out there do already count them then ur obviously not me
Laughing Laughing Rambo In charge
You Wont See Me

There is a max amount of paintballs you can fit in a hopper when you fill it up. It would just go off that. It would at least give you an idea of how many you have left.
Glassjaw

The LED board on my Angel Speed gives me a BPS counter, although It's hard to really be exact.

no they don't...just a game timer.

You know how many balls are in your full hopper before the game. You know how many balls each one of your pods hold. You know how many times you reload in a game (empty pods). All you have to estimate is how full your hopper is when your done. I don't see what the big deal is, if your beyond spilling balls when reloading. If you want to bench it to count then use a chrono. I don't like all these electronics, just more to break. However, I would like to have my marker tell me muzzle velocity.
How many of you are suprised when you run out of ammo? You don't give it the occasional shake to feel how many balls are left? Before the electric hoppers or cyclone I remember having to shake the marker to get the balls to drop faster from the hopper. It got you used to knowing how many shots where left by feeling the josling.
cdacda13

I have been shocked when I run out of paint, I reach back for a pod and theres nothing there.
You dont think about EVERYTHING when your playing. Its hard to think about 5 different things, "Is the snake clear", "Where are they at"," Why is this noob with me in the back stand up" " Dont let the old guy get to the 50, damn too late" "Why are my shoots dropping off, am I out of air", " I need a pod, snap Im out"

Thinking about all that is tough.
Nickodemus

To each their own I suppose. I played for a long time with a pump and frequent reloads. I'm always conscious of how fast I'm lossing ammo. What gets me is when something happens on the field somewhere that I wasn't watching. Kind of the opposite it sounds like.

i wanted to get i think it was a bonez lcd or something that was a pretty nice gun and it had all the bps counters, game timers, and all that stuff on there. I have seen a few hoppers with bps counters, and counters on how many balls you have left. Some people told me they put it on there themselves (like made the parts and everything) though i didnt really believe em.
abr5

yea, that would be pretty hard to rig that up and be able to bit it in ur hooper without it being totaly broken
