1. How did you get into Airsoft?
I've worked at a paintball and airsoft field for almost 2 years, I was hired to do the paintball but joined the airsoft every now and then, absolutley loved it.
2 .what would your callsign be?
either "Mr. Fabulous" or "Maximus" (after the horse from Disney's Tangled)
3. What would your primary and secondary gun be (optional third)?
I'm currently saving up for my first gun which'll be an M4, nice and generic, after that I might go looking into customizing a gun into a DMR
4. What Battle dress Uniform (BDU) and gear would you use?
currently I've used some olive drab coloured stuff from different countries, just stuff I scrounched up, looking into getting an Alpenflage jacket (already got the trousers) and maybe start saving up for the Finnish M05 camo system
5. If you could use rubber melee weapons, what would it be?
6. What’s your favourite and least favourite game mode?
I don't really have a favourite, but if I had to choose between attacking or defending I'd probably go for attacking.
least favourite is battle royale
7. What’s your best, funniest and worst memory of Airsoft?
playing with some friends who have their own airsoft team and claimed they're really good at CQB and generally were just bragging (also making fun of me as I was a greenhorn with a rental, all in good fun tho although they were a little bit smug about it), we had a mission to collect an order sheet at a CQB bit (town) on this field, in the town there was a scrap car in the middle of a square witht he order sheet plain in sight, we collected it and I took up position in one of the buildings just in case, the 4 "expert" chose to stand in the middle of the square, pondering over the order sheet and ignoring me when I said we should maybe take cover ("hang on, lemme read this first") it will come as no surprise that those 4 were, in quick succession, hit by enemies. I managed to sneak away before they knew I was there, run around, shoot them in the back and take the order sheet to the respawn point they were most likely going to (this field has 3 respawn points per team). when I found them they smirked at me and asked me if I got shot too, and that we should hurry up and go try again, I just dead calm produced the order sheet from my pocket and handed it to them ("got ya fam!") (I have more stories with them, taking out enemies from behind after they didn;t want to follow me around the building because they knew what they were doing, I ended the day with more kills than the 4 of them combined, it was great to wipe those smug smiles off their faces)
same day, I managed to get lost from the squad of smugness and was defending a small point with some other players, eventually I was left by myself for about 5 min because the rest had been taken out, when reinforcements slowly started backing me up I gave them directions as to where they should take positions, which direction, what to expect etc. etc. untill I had about 8 guys with me. When we managed to hold the objective and the timer had run out, all of them came to me (rental players, experienced players and everywhere in between) and just looked at me, asking me what the plan was, I had my own squad, who followed my directions and played really well, for the remainder of the game, that felt Alpha AF (also the moment I definately fell in love wiht Airsoft, can't wait to have my own squad again)
there were 4 of us in this foxhole thingy, one of us with an LMG, this player form the other team jumped in from behind us, probably expecting us to be on his team, we just all turned around, pointed or guns at him and, almost in unison, shouted "NO!", didn;t even have to fire, he just raised his hand ("yeah, fair enough") and walked away.
people playing unfair, period.
8. What is your favourite patches (maximum 4)?
I've got a battle-damaged pikachu patch which I always have on me when I play, and a fair seelction of other patches, no favourites tho. I do want to aqcuire some patches witht exts like "you're not an operator, you're an airsofter" or "long-ass text with the word 'operater' in it to make me seem more bad-ass than I actually am". just anything to take the piss out of people who take airsoft to seriously (you're not an "operater" or whatever, you're an grown-up child with a bb-gun!)
9. If there was a gun you wanted or not yet built, what would it be?
I have no gun yet, so I'll take any. but I'd love to have an airsoft G28 (my go-to weapon in Ghost Recon Wildlands), just a shame it's so expensive
10. What do you see as a step forward, for the game, in the future?
longer, accurate, range for guns. I have no trouble with being hit (yet), I've done paintball and that hurts way more, as far as I'm concerned the FPS could go up a bit, granted it is safe enough to do so (as long as goggles don't shatter and skin issn't actually pierced, I'm good)
