Tips On Reloading!!

Any tips on reloading with slippery pods? Thats why i use locklids... whats the easiest pod to open, and do you open your pods with just one hand, or do you press it against your body so that it doesnt slip. Thanks

I use JT or empire pods because of the tabs on every side and the face the tabs are bigger. Much easier to use and open.

I use the cheapest pods out! A pod is a pod! Not much difference! I would recommend putting some sticky tap on the tab, that way you wont loose your grip

I guess it really just depends. Sometimes I just simply use one hand, other times I have the pod "kind of" pressed against my body? But it isn't really to prevent slippage, more like to stay super tight in the bunker. I've never really had a problem with that, pods just don't feel like they get that slick to me. Maybe to help with that issue, you can try gloves? Fingerless ones maybe? I'm not a fan of gloves, I don't like things wrapped around my hands.

If you're having trouble with loading your pods. just set up in your room with a bunch of full pods (empty will work too, just not as well) and practice loading with your gun up. After about 15 minutes you'll be a master.

strategically placing the tabs on your pods while they are in your pack is key.

I turn the tabs towards the nearest hip. I do this because thats the hand I will most likely grab them with. I use the pods that were abandoned after being dropped in the paint or shot... Just practice and that will help. That's one of my top things I need to work on. I'm getting better at it but it takes time.

this + I would actually load them into the pack while wearing it so it was precisely where it needed to be.

I put them in my back with the hinges facing backward so they don't open when I pull down. I give my pods a quick once-over with a rag or clean-ish jersey to get rid of the slimy crap that accumulates throughout the day. This tends to keep them clean enough to grip well. I pop them open with one hand once they're moving upward toward my hopper.

Just dont use **** pods and youll be fine either that or get a stronger thumb and grip. Pods shouldnt have paint on them or be slippery so it shouldnt be a problem.
