Do not know how many times I've heard " fuck how do you move so quiet for a fat bastard" after I've killed or mercied someone.
It's a game play to have fun, if someone is lagging ether help them or move on, they will eventually catch up or provide you with that much need evac support.
Lets not confuse "not" being fat with being in shape. For that matter we could also not confuse being fat or over weight with being "Out Of Shape" even though in most cases this would be the case.
With that in mind...I've seen guys who could easily be considered over weight, that humped there asses up hills and through the bush with the rest of us, carried their own ruck and were still charging hard when the time came. A lot of the time its a mental game for these guys, but it is what it is. Mind over matter is just as much a part of being in shape than lifting weights or running millions of K's "Free your mind and your ass will follow"
There are tons of skinny or non-fat dudes out there that are in horrible shape as well.
