So my A-5 is broken... It's too cold to use any of my heavy guns with CO2, so all I have left is two automatic pistols.

I'm guessing my only choice for tomorrow's game is to be super light and fast, since I only have 20 shots before I need to reload. I got that down; I've been a sprinter for the last 4 years and I'm not afraid to dive and stuff.

Where I need help. I run my pistols constant air on one 20 oz CO2. I have a large 4+1 guppy pack when I play broadsword that can hold it, but it is heavy and bounces, so it slows me down. I also need to carry some extra rounds of paint. And last, my drop leg holster wobbles like mad when I run. So how can I fit these things snug to my body so I can move as fast as I can? Or is there something else that I could rig up tonight that would be more convienient

Any other tips on being a fast player, since I never really have tried dagger, would be appriciated.

Well Im not sure I know anything, but if you want to be mobile I would lose the 20 oz and go with 12 grams if you can. If you do go with the pack get it as tight as you can handle it then tie a knot in the strap. It works for me anyway. As far as tactics you really need to either keep moving, you dont want to staly in one place too long or you'll get pinned down.

12grams will be particularly difficult to use in the cold.

Unfortunately it is pretty hard to attach a cylindrical object and not allow it to bounce around. Vests tend to offer a little more support. You also have the option of putting inside a backpack. It will still wobble to a degree, especially with the large 20 and 24oz tanks you mentioned.

With a metal power tube and siphon CO2 tank you can run your markers on liquid CO2. That eliminates any cold weather CO2 issues. Actually, it works better the colder it gets. It also is more consistent than using gaseous CO2.

Another option would be to attach a smaller 3.5oz tank to the marker.

Use a heavy gun & get an HPA tank ... FTW.

That advice aside ...

Ditch the leg rigs.
Ditch the remotes for 12g, as aforementioned.
Make the adjustments to wear the holsters on your hips & 1 or 2,
50 round pods in grenade pouches on the front, in between the holsters.
It's way easier to run with a belt system & having the pods in the front
keeps a tighter profile with less movement during reloads.
There's also no advantage to using a tactical holster if the pistol's already out.

Next ... don't shoot until you can read the brand name on your opponent's mask.
You can bunker suckers with pistols, but only if you have enough ammo left
over at the 10 yard mark.

I hope that helps !

Okay so I would be better off just keeping my second pistol in my other hand and just try to get really close? Or should I just ditch the second and preserve ammo?
