Noob Question about tac gear/camo

I have a green plate carrier and woodland digi camo pants. I generally just wear a black UA shirt under the carrier. So I am green.

If I wanted to switch to tan would I need to get a tan carrier? Do you guys that have both switch carriers and if so do you just build an identical set of gear?

Thanks for the info =)

No... Team division on most events are based solely on the BDU color. In some cases, a non-open event, the event organizer may restrict a pattern and color to a certain OPFOR.
I personally have one set of Tri-Color DCU, Woodland BDUs and MARPAT BDUs. My chest rig is coyote brown.

As stated before, you should be fine. If you want to be on the tan side, wear a tan BDU. If you want to be on the green side, wear a green BDU.

However, with Tan colors like UCP and Multicam with a OD plate carrier, a lot of people will think you are green, which then will get you shot by Tan. So be careful with that.

Yeah that is what I was thinking. I am thinking I will just play green and then make a tan load out for next summer. The carrier is a bit hot, so I am thinking that I will make a rig that is cooler for summer time.

A great combination is 3-color desert with OD green gear. DPM also works if you're a guy who likes DPM.

This is an interesting thread. I was wondering about investing in camo and watched a range of videos. It looks like multi-cam is best for wooded areas where I generally will play.

Are there rules restricting what kind of camo you can wear and play in games?

Yes, I am a noob

Under Most circumstances, no. However, some stricter MilSim's may require a specific pattern or impression, like contractor or rebels, so always pay attention to uniform rules, if there are any. However, you will know which events require that most of the time so that shouldn't be a problem.

And there's nothing wrong with a question Google can't answer.

multicam is good for alot of different arenas. the troops are using it in afganistan because the terrain differs so much.

Hey Terrm... you may wanna think about something when getting camo... If you like playing with friends or certain people.. You should try to get the same camo / same base color..

Multi Cam is usally tan based for teams ect ect

Just a thought to remember
