What does it feel like to get hit with an ATOM6?
"They hurt just enough to not want to get hit by 'em..."
Does the ATOM6 contain paint?
No... So it's technically a projectile instead of a paintball.
But if there’s no paint, how do I know I hit my target?
When the drone spirals out of control and crashes to the floor – You know you got a hit.
When the guy attacking you with a Nerf gun squeals and runs away – You know you got a hit.
When your practice target flies through the air – You know you got a hit :)
What loaders & hoppers are compatible?
ATOM6 work best with basic Gravity Fed Hoppers, or if you want
to go nuts use the JT Revolution Loader.
Force fed electronic loaders can be used with varying success. Adjusting torque settings lower can increase reliability.
Testing continues with the ATOM6 v2.0. Here is what has worked so far (preliminary):
Tipx, Dye Dam (MCS Springs), M5, DMR, PMC, M17A2 and FSC.
Does not work in TMC, MAXTAC or TGR2.
Customers are encouraged to feedback and help test different equipment.
We suggest using paintball markers with dual ball detents (also known as ball latches) when using ATOM6 projectiles.
These are the small structures in the breech that hold paintballs in place until they are fired. Since the ATOM6 is full of holes it can easily roll past a single detent, so dual detent markers are suggested.
If you have a marker with an electronic eye (anti-chop eye), disable it when firing ATOM6 since it will see through the projectile.
Why are ATOM6 smaller than true .680?
The ATOM6 are flexible. This means when they accelerate in the barrel their shape changes slightly. They need some buffer room to prevent excess friction which would otherwise slow the projectile. We continue to fine tune the size and rigidity of the ATOM6 with each production run.
