1) As a forward player, I often find myself in positions where just about the only cover I have is being prone. By putting a large and very solid item on my back, that's one more thing that's likely to get a break when I'm getting shot at. By running on-gun, I can choose where my tank is placed whether it's directly behind my cover or if I use part of my body to keep it from being hit.
2) I find myself in situations often enough where I need to get to a flag or other objective and it is beneficial to lay my marker down and come back for it when I'm either dead or done with my objective. This is more difficult with a remote.
3) Slide checks. I don't know how many times I've seen people fighting with their slide checks instead of playing. By adding a remote, you're adding one more piece of equipment that can and will fail.
In the end, it's all a matter of personal preference and some of the best players I know run remote. I would encourage you to try running on-gun for awhile as well as running remote and decide what works best for you. Or hey, it's a game, so change it up a bit and go back and forth once in awhile.

98% of people on this forum will say that Tippmann pwns all. If you are one of the 2% that disagrees put this in your sig.

You see, I play in a urban setting, CQB is the name of the game. As a result, I never fire constantly on just one shoulder. I swap back and forth, and the remote gets caught on my vest and etc. Also, I guess the hose just impedes my movement.
Is it heavy? Yes. But I stick with it.

and with the hole lower quality pack issue, specops makes all of their vests (including the dagger vest, which i have) very high quality with a tank pouch
, where you have your air is personal preference

The other month when playing a flag grab game I was able to get the flag becuase putting my gun down allowed me far greater movement for getting into position for the final grab.
But again you gotta go with what your comfortable with.
