I am trying to gather up what I need in terms of ammo pouches and such and I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions as to what to use in terms of tactical gear. Also links to the items would be nice if possible. :D

Depends on the war. Classical NIC wars don't use tac gear because the blasters dont use mags. In Stock/superstock wars gear makes more sense, but it'd be different if you were doing HvZ than it you were doing a regular war.

The go-to is an AK rifle vest (too lazy to link ATM, all my finds were on amazon), it fits 6 mags, has some extra pouches, and costs ~$20. I didnt like how high up that sat with 18s, so I found a belt & suspenders for ~$15, but you need to buy your own pouches. A foldable dump pouch (~$7) is a must if you arent ok with cargo pockets and/or a sweatshirt pouch.

Edit: Im murdering autocorrect now

If you're running a hopper, RSCB, or cylinder (turret if you're old-school) then your best gear is gonna be a dump pouch full of stefans, eye protection with good visibility and comfortable running shoes. If you're running a pistol/sidearm, you might want some kind of holster for that.

Cooler with drinks and snacks. Folding camp chair. Hat to keep rain/sun off your face. A screwdriver/multitool and some duct tape just in case you have a serious blaster problem.

A few backup blasters in case of catastrophic equipment malfunctioning. A hip-flask full of your favorite distilled spirit. Spare eye protection. If you're running an HPA rig, a portable air compressor.

Something tells me you don't run an HPA rig, because I've been running one for the last year-and-a-bit and still have never needed more than one bottle for a full day.

If you see me on here, chances are it's because I'm bored.

Liam, not yet. I'm planning out my leap. I'm kinda considering scrapping the original plan for The Morrigan, and just sticking an HPA XBZ in it instead, like your Xbow, but on an external feed.
