Step 9: Firing and reloading
This way you can fire the rubberbands:
- all at once (by pulling back really fast)
- In short bursts (by pulling back a small amount shooting three rubberbands at a time)
- In single shots (by pulling back really slow and one rubberband at a time)
You can see this on the video to. Reloading should be done by loading the last rubberband to be fired first (the one closest to you). This is because that way all the rubberbands that will fire before that one will be stacked upon that one at the tip of the gun. Should you load the first rubberband first you'll see that when firing it will not fly away but will be hanging at the tip of the gun because it was blocked by all the other rubberbands.
So load the last rubberband first!
The same video again :)
Note: should you accidently skip over a groove while loading never go back and load it. This will make the rubberband not fly away (like explained above). So it's better to skip one that load it afterwards anyway. Also note that skipping one and not loading it has no effect on firing except ofcourse that you are firing less rubberbands ;)
Disclaimer: A rubberband has not hurt anyone to my knowledge except perhaps a sting that lasted 5 minutes, so as far as parts of the body that get shot goes, there shouldn't be any danger. However if the rubberband should shoot in somebody's eye, they could really get hurt. It's therefore my advice that the people who play this game use goggles or glasses during play so they won't accidently put someone's eye out. I advice sunglasses, it makes you seem a lot cooler and that's always a plus ;)
