Yes, Greengas/duster powered pistols will be useless in the cold. Some won't even operate at +5.

Key points have already been metioned in terms of base layers. Sweat wicking shirts will help you big time. Layers but nothing that will make you overheat.

I find that a lower FPS will also help playing in the cold outdoors. I say anything between 340-370. Helps save your gearbox, easier for your motor to crank it, saves your battery. Spare batteries should be kept inside your pockets, will help keep it warm.

cold plastic parts + Co2 = broken parts

As big a lipo as you can fit in an externally mounted insulated bag.

I made it half a day on something like this:


I always use W-Hold, never any problems in the cold.

+ good solid internals including a sorbo pad go a long way towards reliability.
