Haha, that would never happen, but it might make for a slightly better chance of balls breaking.

Velocity increases aside, the paint breakage issue is rather easily addressed by using better paint. JT Splatmaster paint, to be exact. It is very brittle, dropping from waist high is enough to break it. I've even considered using my Opus' barrel as a blowgun. Despite its brittle shell, I've yet to chop a single ball and the gun eats it like candy. It costs $17/1k rounds, so it doesn't break the bank either.
