During the Iraq War, Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction were never found, but the nomadic Bedouins always knew where they were. Years later, Iran and Saudi Arabia are competing to acquire these WMD in order to advance their military dominance in the region.

However, Bedouins may transmit on any channel in order to negotiate trades. VOX mode, hot mic-ing, and channel jamming are all prohibited. Please familiarize yourself with your radio and program in its channels before arriving at the field.

No Spawn-campingYou and your faction are not allowed to stalk, surround, or fire upon the enemy self-respawn location(s). Likewise, they're not allowed to camp your self-respawn(s) either.
ObjectivesThis is a sandbox game where the factions may choose from among several different objectives and may shift their focus as they wish throughout the event with the hope of achieving their end goals. The various objectives will involve territorial conquest, precious metal procurement, trade with other factions, the acquisition of weapons of mass destruction (WMD), and base defense.
Forward Operating Base (FOB)Iran and Saudi Arabia will each start the operation at its FOB. Players may attack and occupy their enemy's FOB in order to loot WMD from it. Each FOB will have an anchored & locked treasure chest that can be accessed by a numeric combination that will be given to the faction commander. Commanders may use their treasure chests to safely store the gold bars and other small items that they collect. Treasure chests and all other game props should never be broken into by force or damaged in any way.
End GoalsIran and Saudi Arabia are each competing to stockpile the highest number of WMD within the walls of its respective FOB at the end of the operation. The Bedouins want to have the highest possible number of gold bars in their treasure chest by endex.
Territorial ConquestFort Harris is the only conquest site available to be captured during this event. To capture it, you must throw your enemy’s flag on the ground and replace it with your own as shown HERE. There’s no limit to the number of times that the flags may be flipped on a control site, but you’re not allowed to steal or hide the flags. This site will be scored at 11:30, 12:30, 13:30, and 14:30 by visual confirmation from Omego, so there is no need to radio in the capture.Three gold bars will be awarded to the faction whose flag is flying at each of those times. The Bedouins will be awarded the gold if no flag is up during the scoring times. The awarded gold will be delivered by Omego into the winning faction’s locked treasure chest.
Raffle GiveawayIf you stay until endex, we'll give you a FREE raffle ticket and a chance to win a valuable airsoft prize.
Swap MeetYou are welcome to buy/sell/trade your airsoft equipment in and around the parking lot and staging area during the morning of this event.
