Basically your talking about chopping. The ball gets stuck in the wrong spot so it fouls up the gun. Which kind of gun do you have? I'm guessing an A-5.

If you have an R/T on your gun if it isn't tuned right then it might be mis-firing. usually the gun locks up. With the 98C I can just manually re-cock it and that fixes the stuck ball (though it has only happened to me twice and that was with a beat up rental gun)

You might also have some shell pieces in the cyclone body. Have you ever taken it apart and cleaned it real well?

Cyclone
Double E-Trigger
Polished Internals

yea i have a a-5 a dont have a RT but i have a e-grip with a APE board in it and i upgraded the cyclone insides to the jchs click and yes i have taken the whole gun apart the only way for me to get to shot again is to either push the ball into the hole or take it out then itll fired agian the later itll get stuck agian do i have the BPS to high its set at 25 but wit the upgrades i should be able to o and i have a QEV too this only started happening wen i set between 20 and 25

I would recommend 20bps max. That is where mine is set in x-mode and I have yet to have any problems. Above that and the balls tend to (popcorn) in the cyclone. Also, scrap the Q.E.V and get this! You will be much happier with the results.

And there is your problem.

The Cyclone generally can't keep up with that.
