  • Guns: Nothing - all sold! :(
So my first skirmish was on Saturday with the good folk at Skirmish Airsoft Billericay - and first of all it was a blast!

That's when it started to go wrong....

1. Gun - too powerful, have to take a rental (though Action Gamers really did come to my rescue!)
2. 1st game, grenade goes off in my pocket as I accidentally depress the button
3. Walking back to the safe zone, I savage my ankle, hearing a nasty crack.

The second game was not fun due to the pain, and then I had to sit out the rest of the day! :lol:

Well, it can only get better from here!


Do any of you guys have any funny stories or experiences from your first skirmish?

Going knee deep in a 'small stream'
First ever chrono I got 207 FPS
Running towards the enemy in front of our whole team in a speedball style warm up game and tripping over, luckily I landed looking down the sights, so I declared it a tactical dove :P

Oh yeah and sneaking behind enemies, 5m behind them, about to tap their shoulders, when my little brother decided to ring my radio.
What an annoying little ****

2. 1st game, grenade goes off in my pocket as I accidentally depress the button

I know a guy who had a grenade in his trouser pocket that went off. It tore his trousers and burnt nearly his entire leg. Luckilly he didn't have to go to the hospitol but the people on site had to pore buckets of water on his leg for an hour...

Slipping on ice just as I was about to slot 2 unaware enemy. I stayed there for a bit as I landed right in crossfire and standing up would have been stupid.

Getting out of muddy ditch, slipped flat on face, got up, slipped again flat on face, just stayed there laughing for a bit

Ran across muddy bridge, slipped backside over head. At least opposition had deceny to shoot me when I had crawled behind some "cover"

sneaked behind enemy, crossed a patch of green to get to a small mound overlooking their camp, turned out to be a bog that went upto my knees.

Whole thing is that its a game, funny things happen, but keep a positive attitude and its fun (and if it isn't fun then no point doing it)

However I always pass ammo out to rentals as they always run out (I mean a mag full is only about a 1), and have lent guys a spare gun to play with as well.

This Also Was At Skirmish Billericay, The Team I Was On Had To Defend A Village And I Saw A Person Right At The Bottom Of The Village On The Complete Front Line, We Were Lying In A Little Cubby Hole Behind Some Wood Barricades With Some Camo Netting. As The Game Started I Saw Many People In My Sight And Was About To Open Fire And Then, "Click", Crud My Battery Was Dead. So I Then Had To Rush Out Of Where I Was And Got Shot Mulitple Times In The Backside. It Was Pretty Annoying. Hopefully This Brings Compensation To People Who Had Done Worse (If Its Possible). :D

My mate ran towards a bunker with a grenade thinking it was a smoke. He held it too long and it blew up in his hand!

I'm great at these :lol:

I have one from my last skirmish at Heywood with Joe & Dave, and I don't think either of them will let me forget it.
Allow to me to explain:
We discovered a while back that I am very good at hiding in the holly bushes at F&O Heywood, and springing ambushes to defend bases/objects like flags we have to keep. The tactic works really well because few people expect anyone to hide in a really pointy and sharp bush (they've been hollowed out, so its easy).

Anyway, back to the point, last time we were there, it was raining a lot, and everyone was having fogging problems. And due to a 3 players have to leave early, the teams had a minor bit of mixing up. We've playing a game where both sides have an object - and need to get both parts to win.
Despite having been playing at the site for 2 years, I have never actually had to play defencive in this specific part of the site (known as 'the village' I think), so already you can probably see where this is going.
3 guesses. The first 2 don't count.

Yup, I hid in a holly bush, which had a perfect view point. Rob was stood directly behind the objective, whilst Joe and Dave went forwards to try and nick the enemy's objective. I fogged up.
I didn't see - or hear - the enemy scout walk right up to me, behind the bush, take Rob out, take the objective and then walk away right in front of me with the objective.

We lost.
But, I did make up for it. Whilst Joe & Dave went to reload, I managed to sneak right into the enemy base, from behind their lines and almost loot the objective before I was killed. Admittedly I only attacked it from behind because I got lost in the stream and walked to far down...

Mine isn't really a fail, more of a win ;)

2 guys left, pissing off our team. casually walk around the side pretending that i am dead, i didn't have my hand in the air nor did i say hit, so it wasn't really cheating :P so i run up and...well.. SURRENDER! I was kinda scared as i thought the guy might shoot me point blank, he rose his masada in my face :lol: WIN!

It's ares, it'll be ok...

for 5 minutes :lol:

the fact that you wrote "pretending im dead" made it sound much more like you were cheating, the way you told me sounded a lot more 'fair'

It's ares, it'll be ok...
