Hi, Pretty new here. Can members of a Squad carry extra ammo for the SAW gunner like in some real military units? I know I will probably be told that they would have to stay within the ammo limits, so im just curious and hoping to provoke thought. Thanks!

Nope, sorry, that's not how we roll. 

My job is to clarify and enforce policy, not to make policy.

"SSW may use high-cap magazines that carry up to 3000 rounds".


The rules says plural on magazines, so can the SSW guy carry more than one

magazine on his/her person that contains up to 3000 rounds each?

If yes, is there magazine max for the SSW guy/gal?


Second question: If the SSW guy only has one box mag, is s/he allowed

to carry extra refill ammo for the one box mag or is that to be in the resupply box?

This is from the rule set:
"may use winding “High Cap” type magazines with no more than 3000 rounds in magazines."

So 3000 rounds total on your person (which have to be carried in magazines. In other words...if you have a box mag that can hold 3000 rounds you can only use that box mag. If you have 3 box mags that carry 1000 rounds each, you can carry the 3.

Any extra ammo is stored in the FOB.
