Question... What do the green stickers on some of the weapons mean? (you're probably going to say, so 'Fred' can tell its his :lol: )

The stickers mean that the weapons have been tested and are not too powerful by being below a certain Feet Per Second rate usually 350 fps for automatics and 400 fps for snipers and bolt action weapons, any more than this and it can really hurt if you get hit in the face or nads, it can even cut flesh if any higher and I've heard pf people having fillings knocked out when hit in the teeth.
