Almonds, trail mix, Gatorade/Powerade, Water and Coconut Juice/Water. Jerky or pepperettes sounds like a good idea.

Here's what works for me, YMMV.
I carry 2, 1 qt canteens with me, both of which start out half water and half ice, and I keep a 5 gallon cooler in the car that is half ice half water, when both canteens are empty, or close to it, I refill next time I'm at the respawn, every 3rd canteen I throw in a small fast food joint pack of salt and use that for electrolyte restoration (in a 12 hour day I'll go through 6-7 quarts of water). I carry several carb gels, or energy beans with me and use one every 2nd canteen, and I carry some jerky, and Clif bars with me to snack on, and I will break after around 5-6 hours and get a good full meal into me (a mix of protein and carbs, as well as some sugar). I always keep a pack of wine gums with me as a treat for the end of the day on the ride home, just to restore some sugars, and I keep several NuuN tablets with me for emergency use if needed.
It's worked for me for years, but every person is different, and will need to find their own balance.

Huh, saw this on ITS Tactical: "Crystalloid Electrolyte Rapid Hydration Fluid comprised of a complex of 11 pure minerals in a base of purified water."

Thumbs up Well...

I don't really get that dehydrated because I mostly play in indoor airsoft arenas. But when I do go into outdoor ones, its hot like the devil's piss (lol) But I carry a hydration pack full of Kool-aid (No lie) and I carry a few sandwiches. That's pretty much it.

I'm 87 Pounds, Really skinny, so I don't have to carry much weight on me. Plus, I run a lightweight recon class.

I never get headaches during airsoft games. The only exception I've had was when a loud airsoft grenade explosion was right next to the wall I was leaning against. But yeah that's pretty much it.
