Alright, because NIC type wars are more my thing, I'll start with that first.
-sidenote, godfucking damn, Langley told me to write this and I spent 2 hours making a quality post.
First off, Essentials I always carry to NIC or superstock
-EYE PROTECTION (goggles from home depot)
-NerfHaven bandanas (nerf on or fuck off in orange, blue and orange Apoc 2015)
-one derpy nitefinder with cosmetic mods and a brass barrel (original intention for comicon)
-dropleg holster, left handed and modified to holster said nightfinder. On it is one pouch that holds some darts. (Some free pouch I got)
-a dump pouch, on my rightside. Holds spent mags for superstock, and darts for NIC (condor)
-my signature box, with a hat and second pair of goggles to hold it in place or a headstrap mount for my SJCAM (gopro knockoff)
-SJCAM 4000 (gopro knockoff)
-SJCAM 2000 (cylinder tube camera)
-shoes (usually timberland boots)
-socks and an extra pair
-pants (jeans or woodland cargo pants
-a shirt (insurgency/black/grey)
-a sweater (grey zipup if cold)
-screw driver kit (HDX hobby)
-Every Day Carry essentials (a watch, wallet, butterfly comb, gum, glasses cleaning cloth)
-flashlight (a cheap 10$ one from target)
-Head gloves (if cold)
-sling (from my duffel)
-chair with chairbag
-chairbag (holds blasters out of public view because I use public transportation)
-jansport backpack (textbook bag)
(carrying literally fucking everything at Nam's, except a duffel)
NIC war specific
-"demon" rainbow (I call it the skittle rainbow, but it is a rainbow homemade from Aeromech)
-a 16 inch .495 aluminum barrel with a "rocket" on it
-a 13 in CPVC barrel with faux ventilation
-300+ shitty van slug darts. Horrible quality grey #6 darts

Super Stock specific
-vangripret a retaliator with a pump grip, which is a ret slide on the barrel and connected with PVC slots, a raider stock bolted in place covered with cloth, a barrel extended to have another nerf male adapter, bradley alu boltsled, OMW stage 1 and 2, 7kg spring (probably 6kg after all the wars I've been to that wears it down)
-2 duct tape double stack belt holsters
-a velocity plate carrier (it was free, my dads) with a 2x doublestack ak mag pouches on the front to the right, and a 1x double stack m4 pouch. (Double stack m4 pouches (or any other 5.56) and single stack AK pouches (or any other 7.62) hold a nerf mag tightly, and a double stack AK mag or triple stack m4 pouch holds 2 nerf mags)
There's also a pistol mag pouch on the right side of the admin panel that holds my pliers and a screw driver.
A sharpie is on the other side of the admin panel and a fiber-cloth in the admin panel.
Also a big random pouch on the left side I got for free that holds random things
-box of stock class darts (mostly USCs and tracers [200+]
-2 10 banana mags
-3 12 mags
-7 ghetto taped together 12 mags
-backup ret (5kg spring, locks removed and pistol ret with a ret stock and a specter barrel)

I think my loadout overall definitely weighs more than needed, and is a disadvantage. Faux eotech, boots, sling, box, heavier pants, and stupid long barrel is not optimal or ideal. However, I like some of the aesthetics and general goofiness. For NIC wars I like using it, as my rainbow kinda comes close to countering a 4B with ROF and power, and is fun to push with. It's great for pushing, and can defend as it has a balance of ROF and power. However, this is really optimal for outdoors and open areas as its unwieldy long and I have to dip around corners. I use #6s primarily but I'll try and transition to 8s because of so much wind. Another downside is I wear ear pro while using my rainbow because it's so loud and next to my ear it hurts, which is kinda annoying. However I generally find my NIC loadout lots of fun, and fits me and the plentiful amounts of times I get to use it. This setup has worked indoors and outside, very bulky but indoors shear power and rof make it illegal, but the times it's not is fun. Outdoors it thrives, in trees and suburban type cover.

This loadout is not most ideal, partial comicon use, a ret is not the best for superstock and I look like a milsim wanna be with a ret kind of looking like an M4 and a plate carrier. However, I like I have lots of real estate for stuff, and usually when I'm in super stock with AMR (my friends) I hold the mags since they're too immobile with a vest. My ROF is decent because I can shitspam if I need too, and using USC (or rave) darts my shots are actually kind of straight. While again not optimal, heavy, bulky and definitely not for everyone, I like what I have and it helps me hold stuff for people. I can and have used this in an NIC setting. Great for freezetag or a flank where I'll be upclose and ROF is high, but generally unadvisable. I've been to countless superstock wars, and honestly I'm very impractical but I like having fun with what I use, as it's moderate length, can be used indoors and outdoors and just has to be dipped for tight corners. This has worked outside and inside, in human VS human environments because I'm interested in things that shoot back. Rooms have been cleared and hills have been taken, and vice versa. Like the NIC loadout I think it's great in my hands but wouldn't fit anyone else.
