ok, cool, similar to what ive played at Tuddenham. I had a gun mounted light only, but tbh hardly used it as it gave away position. A small torch is worth taking for walking back anywhere so you dont lose you footing, but if to repawn...you may get shot again!....headlight as well, but id only put on when needed
Are you spending all 6 hours out in the game zone?
Is it all woodland?
Having a torch on your gun is always handy, if you light someone up and then shoot them they're about 400x more likely to take the hit.
A small coloured light is useful to indicate that you're dead too; "dead man with the blue light", really helps with not getting shot because people can't see your arm up!
I love night games. I'd suggest good knee pads, preferably integrated into your trousers since in the dark you have a much higher risk of falling. As a weapon, a high powered >500 lumen strobe can be really useful to blind your enemies. I have a Synderay G02 which has a solid/strobe and puts out a lot of light for a small torch.
Also, if you have the option, Tritium sights are a great investment of you go to night games fairly often.
