    I've never had a gun break because of rain before. As long as you keep the water from getting inside for the most part, you should be fine. Just make sure you dry & clean your gun afterwards.

    I've played in the rain, you should be fine as long as your gun doesn't end up filled with water.

    If you are that concerned get a garbage bag and wrap it around the gun.
    I've played in rain before and have never had a problem with my gun failing. I've also face planted into snow and gun was completly covered and didn't have an issue.

    As long as your gun doesn't have exposed wiring, you're fine. If there is wiring exposed - well electrical tape (or heat shrink) is your friend

    By exposed wiring, I mean you see the inner "metal" potion of the wiring.

    In all actuality, you really just have to worry about your battery's connection to the gun, and the motor in your handguard. Those are the main 2 places where wiring is typically exposed.
