Dwell is the setting that determines how long the solenoid is allowing air to pass through to fire the paintball. Adjusting this can help allow your to make your marker more consistent.
Rate of Fire (ROF) determines the delay period between each cycle, therefore capping the max amount of cycles per second.
Firing Modes (Not 100% sure they're in this order):
1. Semi Auto: Your typical "fires as fast as your fingers can move" up to the capped speed (determined by your dwell and ROF settings).
2. Rebound: When firing at a consistent speed, the board automatically increases the firing rate to be higher than what you are firing at (basically fires more than one paintball per trigger pull).
3. Burst 3: Fires 3 paintballs/trigger pull. (10 bps Max)
4. Full Auto: Hold down the trigger and your ion automatically cycles. (10 bps Max).
I prefer using Semi-Auto to prevent overshooting that rebound can create and I've always found 3-Shot Burst and Full-Auto to be a bit of a hassle (some fields do not allow full-auto to be used).
