Impact rounds seems to also have that "twangy" thing inside, so my *guess* is they are not armed until launch. As I am not about to disassemble explosives in my apartment, this guess remains unconfirmed.

Re: TAGinn products

I am not completely sure, but the impact rounds may have a safety mechanism that is only armed after firing. If that is the case, you would need a strong whack in the rear to arm it, then another (probably smaller) impact on the front for them to detonate. You can hear/feel something "twangy" inside...

Re: Elite Force speedloader

A) They have said they will be making other magazine adapters for it.
B) You probably do not carry it in the field. You use it to fill your magazines before the game and/or stash it at regen.

If it works, it will be very handy to those that carry a lot of midcaps for milsim games and the like.

Re: BATC Equipment Requirements

MAA's BATC is a lot more involved than the WAA's AEC, but I believe BATC counts as an AEC equivalent for the purposes of playing at Apoc. Your other option is at Vigilance itself. Kerrik typically runs an AEC at the event before the night game.
