Apr 13 Night Sim – Fireteam Bro Loadouts

For the first time ever, FTB was out in full force at last night’s ASG night game. Those of us with AOR2 rocked it, while Juicy went with a multicam setup and Loops rocked a UK-inspired setup.

General gear-related thoughts:

  • I carried only 8 mags overall (6 in my 6094k +1 in the gun, and one extra mag in my Yote), and this was more than enough for the entirety of the game – I think I only used three mags overall, mostly on cover fire. Granted, we weren’t part of the main assault as we assumed recce and PJ duties, so perhaps that’s why I didn’t expend as much ammo.
  • I want to get a radio pouch for my 6094k, but don’t have much room up front and I want to keep the rear slick for my Yote. Perhaps “wingman” pouches from Ferro Concepts are the answer…
  • AOR2 is amazing at night; I felt super safe even behind soft cover because I knew spotting me in the darkness would be difficult so long as I didn’t move.
  • I need waterproof boots. My 5.11s are comfortable enough in dry conditions, but are about as water repellent as a paper towel.
  • My new neckband Sordins (overview coming soon… perhaps) were great. They are essentially the same as my previous pair of Sordins, but the neckband means you can wear them comfortably under a helmet. This allowed me to ditch the ARC rail adaptors I was using for my Sordins, which in turn frees up the ARC rail space for a Princeton Tec helmet light and perhaps a Contour…
  • I still need a Manta strobe for my FAST helmet. Can anyone suggest a replica? The Element ones are a little too big.

All in all, an amazing night of airsoft with some epic moments – it was probably one of the best sims I’ve ever played in. Full credit to Jester and DXN, who had a large part in planning the sim, and of course to Bellator Entertainment for putting the whole thing together.

Off I go to spend more money on airsoft…

    FMA makes the best Manta replica, in my opinion. but theirs are also the hardest to find… Ebay probably has them though.

  • overhoppers

    Not to mention that the Element ones have been known to fall apart. Mine just split from the base at the end of today’s games – so two gaming sessions with it before it broke in two.

    If I recall correctly, I’ve seen a pic or two on Facebook of people’s Element Manta Strobes breaking in the same spot – I’m not sure if the FMA will hold up any better, but it does depend on the quality of the plastic.
