Well I've logged myself as a dagger because by what I feel my weapon's capabilities are and considering my gear I fell that I run pretty light.

to let you guys know I where a standard pair of Army BDUs w/o any chest protector, or even a harness.
My gun is a JT Tac-5 w/ standard hopper, 14" J&J full tilt, a 20 Oz tank, and fixed stock.(see avatar)
I often only go out with one full hopper and a spare pod in my cargo pocket.

Really when I read the definitions brigade has of the different rifle men I don't really see much difference but maybe I'm looking at it too much from a military perspective as opposed to a SO perspective.

So lemme know If I'm right or not.

Its not really about what kind of marker or equipment you use, its more about playing style. The ideal Dagger depends on mobility & speed, bouncing along the skirmish lines, probing for weaknesses & getting ready to make that mad dash thru the lines when the chance occurs. Most guys like to carry lightweight gear so as not to be slowed down when running, but its not a requirement.
You can play Dagger with anything from a slingshot to an Angel and to just fine.

Ditto to the stuntman post.

Dagger is a playing style - not the gear. What is your style of play. Do you hang back or aggressive? Do you go find yourself up front often?

the gear you have would be ideal for a light infantry position, but its more a question of wether you play light or not that would make you a dagger.

Yeah, I am not that fit, but strong thank you, but am good at this position because I am a aggressive player, but I know when to hold off ect. becuase I am a medium and heavy rifle man as well (and master rank at all too).

I have to agree with many of these guys; it is completely the style of play and not the gear you chose to use. Many times I have played "dagger" with a stock pump. Were there times that I wished I had my auto? You bet! But I was still having fun and effective in my position on the field. I honestly think using a heavier gun would be more of a handicap to me than a pump gun.

Your gear has no bearing on your position whatsoever. Your "position" is determined on how you play. If you are aggressive and always flanking then you can consider yourself a "Dagger". I use the "s because I don't like the idea of positions.
Word.
