Hey,
Not sure if this is the correct thread for this question so I am sorry if it is not.
Okay, I was wondering if I should carry my HPA in my pod belt when I'm sniping or if I should just carry the tank on my marker. My pod belt keeps me from running or moving fast when I need to and I only use it to carry my tank in, meaning no pods. So what do you guys prefer for sniping? Go remote or go with the tank on the marker?

Thanks,
MR. SNYP

If your pod belt only limits your mobility, then where's the reason to put your tank in it? From here it looks like a no-brainer, using a pod belt only hinders you, leave the tank on the marker.

I would definitely try to use your tank on your marker. It's definitely a nice feeling and a huge bonus to play without wearing a harness.

The whole idea of "the marker balances better when running remote" isn't necessarily true. Sure the marker balances better, but if you spend any time getting familiar your marker it doesn't matter if the marker is front heavy our back heavy. Once you are used to it you can use it effectively.

I personally like having a remote when sniping but I don't use pods. I use a tank holder (or whatever u call it) that attaches to my upper thigh. Its alot less clumsy than having it on your back and most likely wont get snagged on branches and stuff while crawling around.

When I'm sniping with my autococker, I have my tank on my marker. But my secondary marker not in my back pack (yeah you heard me :P ) is on remote with my tank hooked to my custom vest and full auto capable :)

But that's when I'm pretty sure I'm gonna run into trouble :) My sniping marker (Autococker) I always have my tank on my marker.

I have a 98C that I convert from M4 SOPMOD to sniper mode, and I prefer the remote on the marker in either case. Not having the gas on the marker reduces the weight, which makes for a more comfortable day of play, and the profile, which is a critical element to playing the sniper position.

In some environments, the tank can be a bit of a hassle, even on a remote, which is why I built myself my ultimate sniper weapon...

...very light, very low profile. I carry it onto the field as a pistol, with the barrel, stock, scope, and ghillie in my ALICE. No one should see a sniper enter the field, no one should see a sniper in the field, and no one should see a sniper come off the field. By entering the field with a pistol and a pack, I retain the element of surprise...another sniper essential.

if you were to use a remote, you would need a stock to counterbalance the weight of the hopper/barrel
i still think keeping the tank on the gun is better because the remote will give you limited movement.

I've used my remote just a few times. So far, it has taken some getting used to. I have just gotten a vest for pb, and have yet to try the remote with it. I am hoping the vest will make using the remote less awkward. Thus far I prefer air on-marker. Just feels less tanglish. But we'll see. I love the feel and balance of my marker with the remote, but it is limited to that marker because is a custom job (wood stock). I see no advantage with other markers.

i use a 98c with a remote. i like having my air off my gun because it makes it easier for me to move my gun around. i have a spec ops 2+tank pod pack that i wear on my left side, that way the tank doesnt stab me in the back when i play. the remote goes behind my back and to my gun. i find that the awkwardness of running with a pod pack is worth the ease of movement when stationary.

*edit: if you run remote then a spec ops remote cover is a must.
