Let’s continue with another Tears of the Sun kit list. This time is Lake’s turn.
Lake is a strange guy. He’s pointman and navigator of Tears of the Sun Seal Team and walks trought jungle with his Remington shotgun, even at night instead of using the supressed M4.
Marked as (X) means it’s droped before final battle.

Lake choses a Remington M870 as primary weapon, but also carries an M4. Here’s a list of mags capacity:
-More than 30 shotgun shells.
-6+1 M4 mags.
-3+1 MK23 mags
Even without shotgun, this loadout has enought BB bullets for all games.
Lake does not carry a back pack, but I always recomend using one: on short games you’ll left it at respawn and on longer games will go with you. The back pack that suits this loadout is a Blackhawk 3 Days OD.
This could be a very lightweight loadout, but that gets erased when you opt to carry two long weapons. But considering good M870’s replicas eyect shells, you probably won’t carry one. Eyection system seems fun, ’til you have to pick shells (or you could just use a shell catcher)
Speaking now about prices and difficulty, half of kit list is cheap and easy to get. 2nd line is mostly composed by USGI gear, so take a look at your closest military surplus store. Minor troubles comes with Blackhawk leg panel and pistol accesories, as finding them on eBay will take you some time. Like Bruce’s loadout, radio is expensive and PVS QD mount is ITAR restricted. Duckbill flash-hider in the end will be made by hand with a PVC pipe (is a very easy design) or 3D printed; the actual model is unknown.
