Whats the purpose of a "contact pack" or team?

If a team does not want to roll into town fusion packs rumbling and 25mm cannons glinting they might send in a contact specialist into the town to scout things out.

This was extra equipment added to a team to allow for a member to look like a post apoc survivor rather than a highly trained paramilitary.

I don't think it was intended as a "survivors walkabout kit" but just a few items to allow the user to blend in better than in full military style kit.

It could be supplemented by stuff from the standard issue that all MP personal have. The sleeping bag, poncho, matches, pocket knife, M1 CBR and KCB-70 come to mind.

Understood thank you.

Did these contact people have special skills or guidelines?

I just get a kick out of the Marlin. I just bought one a few weeks ago in 30-30. And I keep all my ammo on bandoliers I bought at Cabela's last week.

Well in many ways a Contact kit needs to look used and be things that a survivor would generally find or had before a emergency. So Civilian clothes that are warm-Jeans, T-shirt, Flannel Shirt in colder climes, scrounged jacket-most likely leather or military jacket. Sleeping bag like something you would find at Dicks or Bass Pro Shop. Possibly a small tent, and worn shoes or boots. Weight will be key. Too much gear and a contact could get mugged for it all and make people wonder where they come from and how they got good gear.

Weapon wise I would say a single pistol of some type and a bolt action rifle or a shotgun. If a Contact shows up with a repeater or a semi automatic there is once again the possibility they might get mugged for it. Its best to reduce temptation and depend on the rest of the team for back up than have a contact get shot as soon as they show up because someone see's a fancy repeater and decides they want it.

In Operation Lucifer its clearly stated that the items look worn but are in perfect working condition.
