The Night Ops kit features the tools to execute night missions and low-light room clearing in the scenario environment. The kit includes a weaver mounted tactical flashlight with a remote pressure switch, allowing for simultaneous use of the flashlight and trigger. Also included is an aluminum barrel compensator that threads onto the end of the Recon E5 barrel without the use of tools. The compensator acts as a recoil compensator, enhancing accuracy by steadying the marker's 'kick'. It is designed with realistic vents for an authentic look.
The Game Face Night Ops Kit is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Its gorgeous and made entirely of aluminum.
Adds at least another pound to an already heavy gun.
Okay, so if you're like me then these kits were a deciding factor when buying your Game Face Recon E5. Although you may have been having some trouble finding them, they are becoming much more readily available and the prices are coming down greatly.
First the tactical light. The tactical light can bolt onto your gun in three different places. On the under-barrel weaver mount, on the left side of the top rail mount, or on the right side of the top-rail mount. It comes with a pressure switch, but it is not required and seems to get in the way more than anything else. I had originally intended on using the pressure switch, but realized very quickly that the switch requires too much pressure to turn on and hold comfortably. I've found the easiest thing to do is mount the light on the left side of the top-rail mount. In this position you can easily move your thumb up and push the end of the light in for temporary light. If you want to keep a steady light you simply turn the end slightly to the right. It is extremely well made and comes with all mounting hardware required.
Now the "barrel compensator." Okay, first off let's clear up any confusion as to what this thing does. IT DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! If you expect it to make your gun quieter, give better accuracy, or steady "recoil" then you will be horribly disappointed. This attachement has absolutely no practical use, it is for looks alone. however, I have noticed that the intimidation factor alone is enough to keep me from having to shoot several people who simply surrender when they see me aiming for them. So it will save you some money on paint. If you're a person who likes to go with the stealth approach to paintball, then avoid the compensator. It actually makes your gun louder...which I absolutely love. I've been doing everything I can to make my gun louder, and right now it makes as much noise as a .22 Long-rifle and weighs just under 18lbs.
overall this kit has no real usefulness when it comes to the sport, unless you're playing at night. But it does give a very cool look to your gun, and cause alot of players to completely avoid you while on the field. On the other hand, however, it also seems to draw more of the annoying little kids who think they're better than everyone else. They often see my gun setup as a threat and feel like the have something to prove my taking me down. So expect alot of that.
