If you wear a BDU, sneakers, and a paintball mask, Im going to assume you don't know what your doing.

They still had different jobs back then and since the dawn of war. IE cavemen with clubs and the sniper cavemen with rocks.

well I've never used it or seen it, but fairly sure how it works. you have to use mauri tracer bb's, which are glow in the dark, and the tracer system pulses a light on and off that will make the bb's glow.

Put bluntly, there are 2 types, one in which there is a light in the magazine, and one in which connects to the barrel undercover as a supressor. the bb passes through the light, and the bb is a glow in the dark of sorts bb, plan and simple...

Lowcap - 30 rounds
Standerd - 60-70
Midcap - 100-150
Large Cap - 300
Highcap - 500+

There are essentially two types of tracers.

The simplest is white bb's. Since they stand out against a darker background you can see their path. In winter black bb's have the same effect.

The other type of tracer and the only one useable at night is to use glow in the dark ammo with a mag that has an internal light source of a Tokyo Marui tracer unit. The tracer unit fits over the muzzle like a suppressor and flashes a strobe every time a bb passes through to light it up.

Remember- tracers work both ways.

What I did for night games with my stinger R34, was take the lead weight out of the mag and replace it with a LED light and some watch batteries and then I used glow in the dark bbs. The LED light recharged hte bb's so they glowed while in the mag and they glowed when shot. Just make sure you wrap something around the mag so the light doesn't give away your postition and you should be good.

Are tracers available for all weapons or just Tokyo Marui?

It would be really cool, cause real firearms that are shot during the night give bright coloured projectiles out, like the video:

Thanks for all your help guys.

What I like to do is just get the glow in the dark ones, and put every other, or every third one a glow in the dark.


I don't get it. What do you mean?
