ball curvature

i was ballin the other day with my tippmann a5 with a flatline and my balls were curving like hell. my velocity screw is missing, so im assuming the velocity is as high as it will go. also it chops paint sometimes. i clean the barrel every time it happens though. is there a way to improve accuracy so it'll shoot straight? is there a better barrel i should buy that will improve accuracy? does it curve because its not a high end gun? thanks for your help

you need to chrono your marker, there's no way in hell you should EVER be shooting people without the velocity adjuster.

you go and fix that, then we will talk about the rest of it.

if you want better accuracy you can get pretty much any barrel beside the flatline and stock tippmann barrel and be in good shape

but yes, get a new velocity adjuster ASAP and chrono your marker

The Flatline is especially sensitive to velocity and it actually performs better at lower velocities.
