Since you a front player...wanted to know if I should wear a 3+2 or 4+3 pack? In your own opinion will that one less pod be a disadvantage?

7-man i usually go straight to the snake or any front pos. while my back player is covering me. And once people get settled in their bunkers I usually go through 2-3 pods in the snake and 3-5 pods in the dorito side.

Then I would go with the 3+2 because it will be lighter so you can run faster to the snake. and slo you will still have 5 pods for dorito side

It all depends some games you need it some you dont. My strategy is being a front player i'm there to make key moves if i clear my tape and the back corner is gone I'll run the tape and shoot in on the field its nice to push them out gives your team key moves. I rarely use all my pods but I have before and it is nice to have the extra if your'e in a gun battle with the back corner or something.

5+3+2?? like dave bains nXe pack?? i'm so confused. the front guys that i used to play with usually had a 4+3 and carried what they needed some carried only 4 at time other times they filled it. it really depended on the field layout and their job on that field. me personnly as a back guy i have a 4+3+2 and use them all if i can

I most definitely agree with BryanDragan. It's always nice to have that extra just in case. Depends on the game plan too. For instance if you went snake1 off the break every game a good team will notice and lane for you. So we always like to change things up either going to the 50 off break or stopping short somewhere. Depending on my run to where can dictate how many pods I carry.

the weight of one pod isn't going to make a difference in whether you make it to a bunker or not but having an extra pod of paint could make the difference betweeen a win and a loss.

ps: i like the 4+3+2 because because i can carry six flat on my back
pps: in a standard 7 man game everyone should have at least 5 pods on them if you have less than that you aren't shooting enough
