  1. OK, this might be the dumbest question ever asked on the internets, but I gotta do it…

    Is that a chunk of ice in the rusty looking container hanging above and to the side of the gun???? If so, why? If not what is it???

    Thanks.

  2. That’s the ammo box for the counter-sniper mount (cal .50 not mounted). Who knows what they have stuffed it it at the moment.
