Leaving pods when alive...

Hello all! At a recent tournament, it came down to a 2 on 1, advantage to the opposing team. I had about 3/4 of a hopper left, and managed to run through one guy, and get into a gun fight with the last opponent. I had no pods left (the team ran low on paint, and I had missed a pod when reloading earlier ), and was running out fast from the gun fight. My captain usually leaves a full pod at the first bunker he gets to, so as to reload faster. To explain better: At the start of the game, he goes to his primary bunker, takes a pod out of his pack, and sets it on the ground in front of him, behind the bunker. When it comes time to reload, rather than reaching for a pod out of his pack, he just reaches down and voila!

My question is, had he left a pod there when he was alive, and got eliminated, could I have run back, grabbed the pod, and filled my hopper from it? Or would I be called out because I filled from a dead player's equiptment. It is a gray line because he set it there when he was still alive, and he didn't set it there specifically for my use after he got out. What do you all think? Thanks!

Based on the details you provided, you would not be eliminated. Pods in most areas are considered "disposible" and as long as there is no hit on the pod, you could have picked it up and used it to fill your hopper. Now if you picked up a pod with a hit on it, you would be considered elimintated.

I am basing the above on NPPL rules, so PSP or local rules may be different.

Depends on the refs.

Pods are disposable, that is pretty well accepted. However, if it has a hit on it and you take it back into your possession you would be eliminated.

HOWEVER - by technicality the paint in the pod is not disposable. Leaving a full pod (or if you get some refs who want to be jerks a pod with any paint in it) is abandoning equipment and can result in elimination. Very few refs know or care enough to call this.

Ok, well lets say it wasn't hit, I wasn't hit, and I ran back, picked up the pod that he had set down when alive, though he is now eliminated, and filled. Same answer you think?

If I remember correctly, he picked up a pod of paint and used it. No issue.

Yes he did. He was in a one on one battle with one of the Ironmen (I think it was either Billy Wing or Peter U) and it went on for a long time. He ran out of paint and was told by a coach that there was a full pod behind him in one of the 10/20 bunkers.

He ran back, reloaded, started shooting a lot of streams and then got one-balled by the other player
