05 May 2011 - 01:50 PMWow. There's a reason this thread hasn't been posted in in 4.5 years... the horse had already been beat to death. Does anyone really need a position added to the currently non-existent Brigade?
Very true, although it could help bring up their publicity when the time is right and help them push all kinds of hard goods like launchers, nades, new markers, all that jazz. If they can make a specialized marker for a specialized position like the overly expensive Hammer, then they can look at the more cost effective grenadier and see that it's worth it.
01 May 2011 - 08:49 AMIndividual guns will cost around the price of upper end tourney guns (read: $1500). the AK's run like $900, where as the the m249 SAW (which is newer) runs like $1900. I figured the price for a production FAMAS (if he is persuaded to make one) would run somewhere in that range. I know he did a few HALO battle rifles way back when, and they werent horribly expensive
I did some research on the FAMAS one time, and idk if I'm remembering correctly or not, but in order for an American consumer to obtain one, it ranges in the tens of thousands I heard because they are still relatively new. This is the actual rifle itself, not a mod to make a marker look like one.
01 May 2011 - 08:46 AMI don't pay that much attention to official Spec Ops positions, but I would support the addition of Grenadier.
However, I think grenadier would just be anyone with a grenade launcher. You could probably bypass the cost of hand grenades by just making them out of something like sections of iner-tube and rubber bands (I think I heard something about that on these forums) but I don't see a guy running around with a bunch of hand grenades as being that useful.
Grenades are special purpose devices used for providing indirect fire on people behind cover that you can't shoot directly. I don't think it's that much of an issue that you would ever need someone who's sole job was to carry hand grenades for that purpose. Anyone can get a hand grenade and just handle their own indirect fire needs or just maneuver to get the line of sight they need, I don't see much need for a specialized role there. But the enhanced capabilities and relative rarity of a full on grenade launcher make it a specialty almost by default.
Basically anyone can carry and use grenades, so need for a special grenade player. Not everybody is going to have a grenade launcher and it enhances the capabilities of the marker to the point that it makes a lot more sense for this to be the Grenadier position.
We raised and worked around all of these points good sir and found many practical applications for a grenadier in traditional woodsball like the special ops based positions. It's all in the thread. I'll be sure to sift through it and provide the entire collected research into one post so people can simply refer to the first post of a thread.
26 April 2011 - 02:20 PMIn regards to straight rifled barrels I have this to say. My friend's marker, a Miltec MT-65 came stock with a 16" straight rifled barrel. Needless to say it shot where ever you placed the sights at 100 feet, and I've never seen it miss a target...the only problem is that this gun no longer works due to a manufacturing flaw in the air system that we cannot figure out. We have taken it to various people and experts and nobody can figure out what's wrong with it...On the plus side, it fulfilled it's duty before it died and shot this really cocky player in the neck...it die din peace... ^_^
26 April 2011 - 02:09 PMI don't see too much negativity after events I've been to.
I just think it's so hard to find that "group game" that used to take place twice a month. It used to be just some outback game with friends, didn't go through too much paint or pay entry fees, so it wasn't very costly. Once those type of games break/broke up...it forced guys to go to fields and then it got to be expensive and suddenly it was problematic just to afford the monthly playing much less the gun upkeep/modifications and events.
I more than agree! The costs on field paint, entry fees, the wavers, all the waiting for a field to open up, and the usually poorly set/uninspired fields (especially the scenario fields) it was all too much...better to just grab some decent Wal'Mart paint, grab your good old Tippman or pump with a decent barrel and head out back to the woods where it's virtually cheap, you can control the action, and you only play with people you trust and respect...
