Break Beam Eyes are sorta like headlights. If a paintball crosses into the "headlights," only then will it fire. This prevents any breach breaks.

Do you need a break beam eye for your paintball gun?

A break-beam eye is not necessary on a paintball gun, however it is highly recommended; There was a time when break-beam eyes did not exist, and players were often victims of "chops" or "barrel breaks," the advent of motorized feeders (hoppers) saw a great increase in these broken balls damaging accuracy and sometimes causing complete failure of a marker in-game. Todays popularity of the use of eyes to reduce these breaks almost requires a player to use an anti-chop system of some type to remain competitive, the best of which would be the break-beam eye.

What is act technology in a paintball gun?

ACT stands for anti-chop technology. Sometimes in a paintball gun the paintball does not fall all the way into the chamber. If the ball isn't all the way in and the bolt is pushed forward it can "chop" the ball in half. Anti chop technology can sense when the ball doesnt move and stops the bolt. Break beam eyes do the same thing but are more expensive
