Well disappointed they didn't use them in a myth and the face protection was a little lacking. Oh well

they used a SP1 for an accuracy test, but (obviously) pointed out paintballs are inheritantly inaccurate.

They've used the G6Rs in at least two episodes that I remember. The first one they were used as remote controlled gun turrets on a "spy car" episode, and the second time they used them to shoot a paintball in time with when a sniper's bullet would hit the target to see if you could dodge a bullet if you saw the muzzle flash from the rifle.

Why spend the money on one?Did they think it would be more accurate?

well they make alot of money from the show. so if one wanted to get into paintball they probably asked the guy at the shop for the most expensive marker they had, now it's just kicking around one of their garages and it comes out for paintball tests every once in a while.

I think the reason they bought the G6r is that Adam and possibly Jamie actually like paintball. Therefore why not get super nice markers if you can lol.

If that is the case, then perhaps someone should try and get them to come out and play in a local event. Forget the Shatnerball of the past, here comes Mythbusters-ball.

guys, one of the workers of the pro shop said they walked in, asked for 8 g6r's polish black and about 50 cases of paint. they said it was for a show and this was right when the g6r's were coming out and they were special ordered from bob long. there is no big mystery and we do know that adam, jamie, and tori like to play paintball. it was actually posted on techpb somewhere

Im pretty sure the SP1 featured in the accuracy episode is Adam's personal gun. That same episode, you can see multiple guns laid out on a table, and i think i remember seeing a splatmaster. Not sure though

The most recent episode was about blast waves and the shape of WWI trenches. However, they decided to waste some time by shooting at each other with TPXs from adjacent trenches.

I've watched a few episodes now where they use paintball markers ( they have been doing a lot of myth recently which use paintballs as a simulation for guns). And I have noticed something...

They wear actual body armor to make it sting less, but they don't even wear paintball masks...

And they dont call them " paintball markers" or even just " paintball guns" , they say "high powered paintball guns" , as if there are different types and the ones they use are the special , awesome types which hit you harder and are dangerous lol

And they kind of contradict themselves , Adam says that a paintball can't to be used as a simulation for a bullet but Tory , Grant and Kerry shoot paintball markers to see if someone can run away from people who are shooting at them with real guns...

My guess is they wanted something consistent and efficient that wont go down on them.
