2-3 pods when I am playing snake, but if I take the other tape I will take 4.

Thumbs up

I get places all around the field. I used a proto fighter pack, nice pack I definitely recommend it. If I am playing back I carry a full pack which is 7 pods and sometimes use the nosecone for my Pinhokio(spelled that wrong.)
Than in middle I will carry 5 pods and if I am playing front it depends on the team but normally 3.

I typically bring 2 or 3 depending on if im playing 7man or xball, but how much paint you bring really depends on the layout of the snake and the field,how slow or fast the field plays and how much you tend to shoot in general.

Play the layout and bring five, if you use 3, bring 4. If you tend to use 2, bring 3.

Many upper level PSP snake players take out 3 pods. 7-man really varies by the playing style of your team. The easiest way to find out the right number of pods is to take out more than you need, then slowly take one less each time until you have 1 pod left at the end of most games (that's what you save for long games or 1 on 1's).

3-5 always used to be fine for me in 5-man.

You're a front player, if you're doing your job right chances are you're not going to need too much paint because you're either going to be shot out early, or the game is going to be over real fast.

fill your main pod areas in the pack, the ones with the velcro straps. Usually 3-4.

I do the same..I use my old dye attack pack that holds 4 pods when i play the snake. Its a tight pack so its less likely your pods/pack is exposed when ur trying to crawl really fast. If your playing 7 man you might need more but for 5 man 4 pods is fine,unless you like camping in the snake..but i try to move up the snake with a quickness and get easy eliminations cross field. A lot of games ill only reload once and some games i dont even have to reload

Yeah I agree with everyone here, either darito side or snake as a front player you will normally be fine with 3-4. I personally use 3 in 3 and 5 man formats

I myself used to play front. I took 3-4 pods and I was perfectly fine in a game's time of play. I usually had 1 sometimes even two pods left if I took 4. I am now a back player and I carry 6 pods with me.
