How does it work?

Tachyon V4 has 3 modes of operation:

  1. Infrared detection - Fired BBs are detected using an IR barrel-mounted sensor. Most accurate with best results, but the external sensor must be attached, replacing any potential barrel attachments.
  2. Shock detection - Shots are detected through mechanical shocks by an on-board contact microphone. No external sensor is needed, but functionality is slightly limited. See Sound detection for more information.
  3. Combined mode - Shots are detected using both methods at once, which enables misfire detection. When a shot is detected through shock, but no out-going BB is detected by the sensor, a warning is displayed.

Setup is easy and simple. All you need to do, is to attach the barrel sensor (if used), and the Tachyon computer to your weapon.
