Battle Orders

Range Experience

Skirmishes will be presented with an array of static and moving targets. Guidance and instruction will be on hand to help skirmishers enhance their skill set. Skirmishers will be able to take part in a competitive shoot after they have practiced the predesignated shoots. Skirmishers scores will be recorded on the Scorpion Airsoft leader board. The highest score takes all, you've got to be in it to win it.

Defend The Facility

Your fire team has occupied a building inside enemy territory, latest intelligence indicates that an attack is imminent. Orders received detail you and your fire team to hold the building at all costs. The team has 15 minutes to deploy personnel to key strategic areas in order to repel the enemy force.

Hostage Rescue

Two skirmish teams will compete to rescue the VIP that has been snatched by a ruthless terrorist organisation . Teams can engage each other to stop the opposing team recovering the VIP. Once the VIP has been secured the team has to safely return the VIP and any skirmishers still in play back to their start line.

Speed Clearance

Your entry team will be split into pairs. Marshalls will guide you to a section of the building that you will have to clear with your partner. Tactical movement must be used at all times. You will engage and destroy all targets encounters Scorpion Airsoft don't believe in taking prisoners. You will only be allowed to move to the next room once your marshals has indicated 'ROOM CLEAR'.

Multiple Team(Urban Clearance

Two skirmish teams will be tasked with the clearance of an enemy occupied building. Teams will enter the building via two separate entry points. Teams are to engage and destroy all enemy they encounter. Teams are to coordinate there movement using radio systems (supplied) to avoid any blue on blue contacts. Dependant on level of skirmish teams each team may have to defeat IED's placed within the building. They may also have to deal with casualty evacuation serials.

Top Tips For A Great Airsoft Day

Dress appropriately ‐ Military/Outdoor type clothing is a must. We also recommend that players wear a boot to give better grip and ankle support. You must wear long-sleeved tops and full length trousers. (Equipment available for hire, see our rental page, if required) We recommend full finger length gloves are worn to give maximum protection. (available for hire on the day). Full face protective must be worn. The on-site shop will stock a limited supply of branded BB's. Reasonable level of fitness is beneficial however remember you don't have to be Andy McNab. During the scenario games, players may need to represent a casualty or move a casualty. During night games some players may find the games claustrophobic, especially when simulated smoke is used. Players will have to ascend, descend numerous stairways and negotiate obstacles and trip hazards in a confined space. For those new to the sport BB pellets can sting, especially if you are hit at short range. So players should be prepared to leave the site with a few marks and bruises. We strongly recommend that all players take the necessary measure to protect the area of the mouth as a pellet potentially could chip a tooth.
