I much prefer my ‘strapped layer’ to involve a backpack of some sort, and I really don’t want all that extra stacking encumbrance.
I think beside the spear strap, the only other thing to hold spears would be your hands. Otherwise you’ll have to store it in your inventory or vehicle storage.
have you really checked the encumbrance?, if you have it strapped it gives you an extra, but if you wield to be combat ready, the encumbrance is minimal even with the extra, and secondly, with how backpacks works now, is even better, since you dont get the full encumbrance unless its full
Why use a spear when you can add a blade to the end of your rifle and let it do both jobs
