I as wondering what size tank for scenario games. I am going to a 5 hour scenario on Oct. 28th and My 48/3000 will do for that, but I will be joining a league. When I get my GoG eXTCy I am getting a Ninja 50/4500 would I need a bigger tank than that 50/4500 for longer scenarios?

ProTip: Don't be the guy who stays on the field for the full 5 hours and is on the brink of pure exhaustion because he didn't take a break.

Go for like 1.5 hours, then take a quick 15-30 minute break to get some R&R&R (Rest, Relation and Refills). Repeat.

I would say a 50/4500 should be good enough, unless you get into some intense battles.

They switch the sides and I am sure they will give us breaks

Still. Just be sure to take breaks, and take em semi-often.

Thanks :) I am planning to shoot about a case, but I am buying 2 just incase. It is amazing how much paint you blow thru, plus I have a first timer going w me (she really wants to get into it)

Lol at last sentence.
Back on topic,How tall are you?If you are tall/big enough for a 68/4500,I suggest getting one.I believe it gets about a bag more on average per fill than a 50/4500.If it is too long,then that's ok,I doubt you will be shooting more than 500-600 balls before a break.

If this will be you tank for rec play as well,then get a 50/45.If this is you dedicated scenario tank,then get a 68/4500.It also just occurs to me that you are probably a teenage boy,so I would suggest a 68/4500 because you will grow into it.

I use a G1 with a Pinokio, 12-16 pods and a 90/45 tank because I like to be able to come on and off the field withour waiting in the air line. I run the 90 on my back though.

Then some kid probably about 9 or 10 got shot in the elbow and someone continued to light him up and in the end he was crying (he had played before)
Alright on the tank I was considering that or a 90/4500 it's gonna be a while though, probably next may. If I have the money I will most likely order in April at the earliest when I order my little cousin's gear for his birthday

They are a few million (add 5 million on the side for a few tank rounds). They can be found at your local Russian mall or alleyway.

Where can I get one and how much?


They are a few million (add 5 million on the side for a few tank rounds). They can be found at your local Russian mall or alleyway.
