What gear you choose to bring to the game must be adopted to the team and to the game. Much of the gear will be different depending on if you have a large base camp or if you’ll be sleeping under a tree, if you’ll be in for a recon mission or base defense.
I’ve set up a basic list of equipment from which you can adopt it to your specific needs. Remember that it is good to plan your gear with the team, share some equipment to ease the total burden. Also pack in a main Bergen but also an extra small backpack with the stuff you want to bring on small 2-4H missions when you leave your main Bergen hidden some where.
Team leader equipment:
- Map & compass
- Notebook & pencil
- Water cleaning device
- Backup main gun
- Toilet paper, shovel
- Power bank
- Water: 3-5 liter/day. (3 liters to drink, 2 liters for cooking etc)
- Food: Breakfast, lunch, dinner. Snacks.
- Gear: Dish, spoon, cup.
- Hygiene: small towel, toothbrush, tshirt, underwear, socks (wool is recommended)
- Sleeping bag, sleeping mattress, bivvie, moscito net.
- Extra eye protection
- Small, not bright, flashlight
Good to know and have:
Garlic capsules: Eat it regularly to minimize problems with tics.
Allergy medicine (ex Clarityn (1pcs/day) and your mosquito bites wont itch.
Buy a water cleaning device and you can lower the weight of your Bergen. This is the BEST investment you can do if you’re into milsim/realsim. The cost for the device is lower than 1SEK/liter water. There’s even cheaper but slower systems. Search for ”Sawyer mini”.
