Tip #11: Gun Length and Comfort

Oct 9, 2012 by Jason "FK" Edwards in Tip of the Week | Comments


Players and fans usually recognize the length of my gun and ask me questions regarding why I set it longer than most people. I am a firm believer in setting the gun a little longer than normal.

I like to have my forearm/wrist sit comfortable along the reg/rail of my tank, being able to brace my tank into my shoulder even if using one hand, and I take into considering that all real life long weapon guns are more stable while shooting.

The original style of play when I started was dropping the tank super far forward and making your face touch the back of your gun. I quickly found too many flaws in this and transpired my style into a longer more comfortable set up.

Give it a shot and test it with one handed shooting, snap shooting, cross handed shooting, and running and shooting. Be sure that you can hold your gun with an extended arm about shoulder height for at least 30 seconds. If not your gun is probably to heavy for you.
