SSR4 Assaulter Accessories & Gear
- As we discussed previously, the SSR4 will be the base for this loadout. To go along with the gun, it’s not a bad idea to grab some accessories. For starters, I think that a simple red dot plus a hand stop would work the best. Of course, you can go crazy on all the flashlights and other things but it’s not something you couldn’t enjoy your day without. Or you can leave these extras out and just run the thing plain and simple.
- Besides an AEG which we do think is the best option for the first gear, you also need a bunch of items to go with it. To run the gun itself, you need 4 things: BBs, a battery, a battery charger and a magazine. The magazine is already included with the gun, however, for longer games, you might want to get 1 – 2 spare magazines as well. For BBs, most AEGs run reliably when using 0.28g BBs. For batteries, it may get a bit tricky. If you consider getting a Novritsch AEG such as the SSR4, you will always find a direct battery recommendation on the website. For these, a solid LiPo battery is your best bet. And based on the battery, you just pick a simple LiPo charger. As easy as that.
- Besides the gun, you should definitely get yourself some safety gear. Safety goggles or glasses, depending on your preference, a mesh mask and a pair of knee pads. Pro tip: tactical pants with integrated knee pads are a very comfortable way to carry knee protection around.
- By the way, if you sweat a lot, you might encounter an issue with fogging goggles. This one is common for many airsofters. To fight it, there are many methods. Most effective in our opinion is getting quality antifog goggles, ideally with a double protective glass layer. These break up the temperature difference between the outside and your face, resulting in no fog. Feel free to check out the goggles we offer on our website.
- On top of the mentioned essentials, you should consider grabbing a carrying platform for yourself. This helps you a lot when carrying around your spare magazines and your other belongings, such as a mobile phone and keys. A plate carrier fits the Assaulter loadout the most but there are also other options. Basically, if you want to go on a budget, a Chest Rig with a bunch of simple pouches would do the trick. Or you can take a look at the Battle belt. A bit more compact and very functional solution. You can find and browse all the variants on our webshop and don’t forget to check the Starter Bundles.
- Generally speaking, there is no right or wrong here as all the variants work well and we do play with everything we offer so it’s been tested a lot. Just go with what you like the most.
- If you intend to play in the forests, some people opt for Ghillie suits for extra camouflage. In our opinion, this makes sense in the later phases of your airsoft journey where you are more likely to fully utilize the benefits such a suit brings you. Instead, make sure to get a comfy uniform with a camouflage you like.
- Also getting a Maintenance kit is a good idea as you are going to clean the barrel from time to time, which is much easier with the kit. Lastly, if you play with friends, it’s a good idea to grab a radio. But for the assaulter loadout, it’s not as necessary at this stage.
