How much paint do you plan to shoot at LL?

After reading a few threads here, the topic has come up of paint consumption. In talking with people, both here and IRL, I've heard of people going with a bag and a pump gun to 6-10+ cases (yes, for just the one person). I suppose if you're going to be out there all day both days and looking for the firefights, it wouldn't be hard to go through a lot of paint. So, how much do you plan on going through?

Me? I'm going to guess ~2 cases total, though I'm not the type to spray and pray. This may go up depending on weather conditions and the final battle.

a "yeee ha" in a chopper it might be a good idea to just call your self out now. (no discription needed.......at all!!!)

I preordered 3 cases, and my set up allows me to carry 10 Pods. I also have a 90 cubic inch 4500 Tank though, so I am going to be my teams Heavy Gunner. If I need more, I'll buy more lol.

I planned for two cases last year but I only shot one. I think I was using a mechanical autococker and played a lot in the really dense stuff so I didn't use lots of paint.

However, the year before I shot closer to three cases. I can see someone going through 4 easily. However, you certainly don't have to.

I'm getting 2 cases, order early and you get a free bag of paint. This will be my 3rd Legends and each time I shoot about 2. But I'll also be playing alot of pump this time around.

i see the biggest issue as what to do with all the pods....... i carry 12 and man its tough to keep track of.

But i would say im good for 4 cases for the weekend depending on temp ifs its that hot its hard to keep going at full speed.

Oh yeah, if I wanted to shoot and "hope" to hit something? Oh, 4 cases no problem. I tend to not be the type to shoot 13+ bps to hold someone into a bunker; it's usually not necessary, especially in open / scenario games.

2 cases should do you fine. Depending on how conservitive you are on the trigger. I've seen people make a case last 2 days. I'm not out to kill someone so. I planned on 2.

^ This man will show you how it is done. He might have to take out a loan or mortgage his house, but he'll show you how much paint you can shoot.

That's just upper management though. You do more now; I do plenty of paperwork.

preordering 6-8 cases. Worst case scenario.. i dont shoot it all. I have a amazing paint to take home!

Doubt ill bring out the heavy vest though, used it once and said Id never do it again. 32 pods and two 68/45's along with 4 grenades and a large utility pouch. my back and shoulders cant take 80 lbs for 10 hrs again. so think ill run a 4+3 or 5+4 and maybe my Vtac echo vest for sunday and when running pump. I usually shoot 2-3 cases at most events I play but something like this I wanna shoot MOARRRRR!!!
