I could make it on 9-12 max. Depends on how big the turnout is though to me. I can make it off an average one with only 6.

A case or 2 should cover it, it really depends on what your shooting, and how you play.

are you saying hes wrong? who cares if he used 500. it means he used them wisely, and not shoot at a tree for 5 minutes strait.

as many as you can still comfortably move around and such with

you can always go back and reload your pods/hopper if you run out, its better then running around toting 2 cases of paint

I played 2 hours of intense action on one hopper and three pods, shooting a shocker, in a big game of 824 people

hope that helps you guage it

It depends entirely on your playing style. I went to a 2 day scenario last Fall thinking I'd go through 4-5 cases. So I bought 2 cases to start with, and went out onto the field for the first session carrying 7 pods and a hopper. (More than I've ever carried in my life.) I had my gun set to PSP mode (15bps then). After the first 3 hour session, I had only gone through my hopper and 3 pods.

I never had a need to stay on the trigger for more than a few seconds. Most of the time, I'd shoot just long enough for the ramping to kick in, and then a few opponents were out - no need to keep shooting. Now some people stood way in the back and just hosed paint at long range into large crowds of the other team. I did that for about 5 minutes once, and then decided it would be more fun to sneak around the back of the field and blindside unsuspecting opponents. That proved to be a lot more fun. At the end of the weekend, I had only shot 1.5 cases of paint, and probably eliminated 60-100 people.

Depends on you, your playing style and the field. Small field, aggressive stlye, a case at least, larger field, less aggressive, half a case.
I normally do 24-26 hour scenarios and I have only gone through more than a case 3 times, but thats me. Buy a case and go from there.

I would say, to answer your question, a case would be perfectly fine.

Tippmankid: chill. Invert is saying 6-10 total for the entire 6hrs. Not how many he carries on his person. I believe the threadstarter is asking total pods for all 6hrs.

Threadstarter..I go for 12pods (~2000rounds). The games i play are 6hrs and about 400people. I carry 4 pods at a time and a hopper.
