what pods do you use first

i use a 4+3 vest and i take the inside pods (ones closest to my back) first but lots of people say take from the out side first its quicker does it realy matter.

what do you do if you use more than 4 pods.

i play back and iv been using a friends 72/45 tank till my 88/45 comes in the mail (hopefully before christmas) so i go threw a lot of paint and air

i go for the outside pods first.
it gives you a sort of smaller profile from your pack.

I grab whichever pod my hand gets to first. It's not worth worrying about in the middle of a game.

i usually go for the one in the loops first (outside). thie inside ones can sometimes be hard to pull out if there are still pods in the loops

ya straight up, you wanna use pods in the loops first, cause they will fall out easy, the loops dont hold them good atall just enough to get to your first bunker and then shoot them all. The pods in the straps are for later if you dive ect.. but really just reach back there and grap whatever you can.

I never use enough to use the loops on my 3+2.
But of the 3 I carry, I pull from the left side first and work my way across my back.
If I were to take 5 pods with me I would definitely take the outside ones first. I would think if you took the inside pods first, the outside pods would bounce around more and probably fall out...

if you have pods in the loops use them first..after that i like to use the hand that holds the reg of my gun reach down and grab the first pod on that hands side
for example if my left hand is on the reg (shooting right) i'll reach down and grab the pod furthest to the left

dont waste time thinking about it though its not big deal if you skip over a pod

just reach down and grab one, your not gonna put it back in your pack so you dont worry about wich one just take one and refill. i generally reach down with my non firing hand so that if i see an opponent or am getting bunkered, i can still shoot, it may be slow with only the one hand but thats better than not shooting at all.

depends on what side you are shooting and i usually work from the outside in. keeps smaller profile and easier to get but then again sometimes i just grab the first one i can get my hand on. not reallly that big of a deal imo

Outside are easiest for me to take out, so if I'm not under a lot of fire I take middle, thus leaving the outer one's for when I'm in a tight situation. Otherwise it's outer first and hope I don't need to fumble for my middle one's later in a bad situation.

Depending on which hand I'm shooting with I'll take them from the opposite side in.

So if I'm currently shooting on my right side, so my right hand is holding the grip of the gun, then my left hand will reach behind my back and grab what is available first, which is the outside left pod.

i work my way from the outside.Picking each one randomly will make you take longer to grab one when you try to grab and it's not there.
