I was always rubbish at these machines, despite knowing how to throw a punch. A guy who played Ice Hockey showed be how on Holiday in Tenerife -he looped a right hand over the top and the machine went off the scale , it was especially impressive as there were many young guys much bigger than him all lining up and no-one got anywhere near him!

Whack it with an overhead hammerfist. It will get you a higher score than trying to throw a really pretty right cross that would put someone's nose in the back of their head. These machines actually use a light sensor.

So it is all about how fast you can move the bag to the top. This page may be out of date. Save your draft before refreshing this page. Submit any pending changes before refreshing this page. Ask New Question Sign In.

Anyway, this one time our punch machine broke and we had to call in someone to repair it because no arcade near a bar is worth it without being able to measure who of your bros is the manliest and I got a chance to just kind of hang out with the repair guy and ask him how the thing worked and if it was even accurate.

According to him, the concept is the same across all machines. You hit the bag and it rebounds off of a pad on the back and it "measures" how many "units" of force is thrown into the pad. There are techniques to best hit it for a high score, but I honestly don't remember that part lol. The thing is, very rarely are two machines calibrated the same. Someone who scored could score on another machine and someone who scored on one machine could score on the next.

There's no standard unit of measurement when it comes to the actual number, it just in relativity to the machine. So really, it's only "accurate" if you and your friends only compared scores on one machine.

And even then, some techniques of hitting it score higher than others. All the scores are true in relativity to each other, so long as it's the same machine you all played on. Chrit , Mar 2, Mohawk Mauler , Mar 6, Jun 17, Messages: Not accurate in the slightest.
