nope. the speed slows but the kinetic energy is still the same.
so your only option is to downgrade

Then I will need serious help there.
I don't know what I should go buy (or which spring I should buy) or even how I am going to change that spring (or make any other mod)... o_o
My gun is the Javelin M24, btw...

Pretty much every field allows bolt action rifles to shoot up to 450 fps. However most players are uncomfortable with a new player using a sniper rifle, not really the best choice for you to buy when youre new to the game.

That actually helped me a lot. I've had questions about my gbb pistol for a while now and that answered all of them.

Thanks for this thread. I'd enjoy reading it, for a newbie this is the best thread they should look/read first. It has everything ( maybe not), but still very helpful to a new comers (like me).

BTW name is Melvin, age 33. Lives in toronto (north york). And wanting to join PR - Pacific Recon team (yes im pinoy LoL).

So see you guys at the field.

Happy I trudged through to read all the great tips. For a newbie like myself it clears a lot up and I hope to be a stand up addition to the community. Really seems like immaturity is a cancer in the sport.

Just wondering about the sling. Not sure why its highlighted in red... Is a sling really neccessary? I know almost everyone uses one so im curious. As far as tactics goes i can see a slinged rifle only getting in the way. A rifle not slinged sounds like a better option. Wen clinbing into window i can put my gun down. While venturing in my pack. Gun down. While crawling gun up in my hand away from my body. It just seems better to be able to move that rifle wherever i want quickly. The only thing i can think of is just unclipping the rifle from the sling must be easy and quick so im assuming its no big deal and thats why they use a sling. Let me know why a sling is important

depending on your choice of gun, it could be 6-20 pounds of stuff to carry around all day. A sling is great because it takes the load off your arms when you are a non combatant walking to respawn. It's also very clear you are dead since you don't have a gun in your hands.

I find it a great help since I can be hands free while I'm moving out of an engagement zone. It's so much nicer when I can manipulate kill sticks/kill flag, find a snack, grab a drink do a gear check to make sure I haven't dropped anything. It takes a lot off your arms. It doesn't seem like it in a short game, but in longer games, it really starts to help. Also gives you an opportunity to stretch your hands and fingers, holding a gun for a long time can cramp them up, or at least make them a bit stiff.
