DOP drop w/ 32 deg. guage
24 oz. co2
Scares most people away from you
rips skin off people I shoot
Gun wont take 3-burst too well on highest ROF, ball jams in chamber everytime
Ohhhh man, if you got an A-5 with this, a flatline, and a big tank... shoot you got a freakin light machine gun. Turn the ROF down to the speed of an M60 and its one mean sucker. Screw the 23 bps, stay classic with a 14 bps like the old tippy SMG-60 (SMG-60... M60?? heyhey!!) The gun was made for traditional recballers anyway, not so much speedball. You wanna play speedball dont waste the gun on that, get an autococker. High ROF's arent needed in the woods, conservation and aggression is the key. The A-5's notorious loudness with legendary aggression from an M60 WITH the range of a flatline and its one hell of a combo. I'm not just saying all this to sound like I'm biased or anything, but trust me I know this from experience.
It's hard to describe the feeling my gun gives me now when I play, like a feeling of domination.. as you see people run away and you just wanna crush them!!!

Second, nobody but a newb would be afraid of an A-5
I've been playing for 5 years and I am an upclose killer. I had a 12 year old little kid(I didn't pay him any mind after all he's just a little kid) sneak up on me with an A5 with response trigger set on high. He opened up on me and I didn't know when he was going to stop shooting. In the hands of a newbie the A5 is a dangerous and scary gun.
Here here on ripping skin. If you play with your velocity high enough to consistently rip skin, you will eventually learn a brutal lesson from someone who has no appreciation for it...food for thought. And if you play with people who run from an a5 its time to switch fields.
Anyone who's afraid of any gun sucks, plain and simple. It's not a matter of "anyone who's afraid of a Tippmann is a Newb!"
It's also "Anyone who's afraid of a Freestyle/Shocker/NME/DM6 is a newb, chortle chortle."
Seriously, just because a guy can shoot fast doesn't mean he's got the best accuracy in the world. It's kinda comical to watch someone shoot like 20 balls at you, none of them land within five-ten feet of you, and you get them out with like 1-3. I've seen waaaaaaaaaay too many kids with high end guns who think they're top stuff because of what they have and they act bewildered when they have a barrel poking them in the back of the head.
And I've seen people do amazing things with crap guns. I was with a kid who was hitting people with 30% angled headshots per each ball through the woods. I don't know about you, but I'd rather face the newb with the high-end than the skilled kid with the rental most of the time.
So I think "fear the player, not the gun" would be more appropriate of an assessment. =P Trust me, I know there's not much more scary than a skilled person with a high-end. Not too encouraging when a stream of endless paint is hitting the thing you're hiding behind without fail.
hey, i am scared of NO ONE with any gun at any moment. Neither should any GOOD person playing pball. Newbs i understand, but people nov's and above NEVER should be scared....then again, newbs with r/t's or full auto electric guns can be scary.....at moments.
