  • Acquiring the Epsilon or Kappa container which is large enough to fit a tank battery, which will put the character overweight immediately with no chance of losing it
  • Carrying around stacks of shotgun shells, each stack of 20 weighs 1 kg
  • Wearing heavy, highly damaged armor so that nobody will pick it up. Such as 6b13 in combination with the above methods.
  • Augment the training speed by bringing cheap grenades, such as M18 smoke grenade (green), "Zarya" stun grenade, or RDG-2B smoke grenade. Though this would incur significant extra cost.
