you are allowed to cary only 200 BB per one magazine or drum,
which means carrying less magazines but if you decide to go with the drum then you will carry more wight on you.
if you will go with one drum to battle it will be hell to fill it up with BB's during battle .
in any way there is no plus or minus by carrying your favorite airsoft gun to battle since you know how to operate it the best way you can .

I know that in previous Berget-games you could not use any weapon with a Drum as a light support weapon.

They had to be MGs like: M249, M60, M240, RPK, PKM, MG4, MG43...

I saw someone playing with a MG36, but that is not a G36K.

Check with Berget-crew to be sure.

G36 variants (both G36 and G36K) HAVE been fielded with C-mags in real steel, and the so-called "MG36" IS on the list of Berget 8 light support weapons, as long as it abides by class 2 limits, a 200rd drum mag and it has a bipod.

I have no idea why anyone would bother using a 200rd drum mag on their G36 at Berget, though.
It looks shit and takes up way more space than two 90rd mid-caps clipped together, while providing only 20rds more.

g36k is an assault rifle therefore none other than lo-caps are allowed.

however the e-version could be classified as an LSW.

G36E (e as espanyol or export) is the longest version besides SL series.

but i suggest that mag fed rifles should remain on lo-caps. so if you want to play with a box mag just simply use m249 or something similar.

there must be some trade-off regarding ratio between weight and bb-capacity.
