Semi-Auto OnlyFull-automatic and burst-mode firing are prohibited at this event. Only one BB is to be projected with each pull of the trigger.However, we allow the following exceptions to this rule:
- Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW) replicas that are listed HERE
- Guns that weigh at least 10 pounds and are at least 36 inches in length
- Pump/slide-action or lever-action guns that shoot multi-round bursts
- BB shower shells such as Madbull

- We’re also allowing full-auto for replicas of guns that were designed to fire in full-auto during World War II such as a Beretta Modello 38, Breda M37, Browning, FG 42, flamethrower, Lewis gun, M3 grease gun, MG 34, MG 42, MP 40, MP 41, Nambu Type 100, PPD-40, PPSh-41, STEN, Sterling submachine gun, StG 44, Thompson submachine gun, or ZB vzor 26. If you own a replica that you feel should be added to this list, please ask us below in a post.
For this event, you must possess and use an approved boffer (safe plastic or foam blade replica) in order to perform a knife-kill. Saying "knife-kill" while tapping someone on the shoulder with a finger should not be acknowledged as a hit by the targeted person.
Also, the closest self-respawn poles are "campable" and may be overrun by the enemy. But, the farther self-respawn poles are "uncampable" and may not be overrun.
FactionsYour faction will be finalized on game day based on your preferences, your loadout/clothing, and our faction size goals:
Size goal: 75% of participantsCampable self-respawn: TentsUncampable self-respawn: Wolves' DenDress code: civilian, preferably 1940sRadio channel: 1 (462.5625 MHz)
Size goal: 25% of participantsCampable self-respawn: Wolfsschlucht (MAC)Uncampable self-respawn: Pallet BaseDress code: military, preferably WW2 AxisRadio channel: 2 (462.5875 MHz)
Dress Code & InsigniaThis is not a strict reenactment which means that some participants will probably show up with modern loadouts and anachronistic gun replicas. If you have a somewhat authentic-looking 1940s French Resistance, Allied, or Axis outfit, please wear it. Players are expected to interact with each other based on how each is dressed in the context of Europe during World War II. For example, German soldiers will probably seek to immediately capture or shoot at you if you’re dressed as an Allied soldier, so you may want to stay hidden from them.Please feel encouraged to wear civilian clothing to this event because the vast majority of participants need to be Partisans. 1940s civilian clothes are best, but modern civi outfits such as hoodies and jeans are acceptable. As with all airsoft games, please do not wear anything predominantly red or orange.However, if your heart's desire is to be on the smaller German faction that is intended to lose in the end, please wear authentic-looking WW2 German clothing or, at least, something that pays homage to it. Please do not wear any modern camo or military gear. We have several German loaner items such as helmets that you may borrow:
Radio CommunicationIf you have a two-way radio, keep it set on your faction’s radio channel. You may monitor the other faction's channel, but do not transmit on it. 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. The Baofeng UV-5R is popular in airsoft and has programming instructions linked HERE.
Phase 1: Trigger TimeThe Germans have invaded France and occupy multiple sites within the area of operations (AO). French Partisans have mobilized to counterattack by entering the AO at South Bridge and fighting their way through the Prison and onto Wolves' Den where they will plant their uncampable respawn pole. Then, they will fight on to push the Germans out of the Tents where the Partisans' campable respawn pole will be placed. During this phase, each German gets only one life and no respawns. Hit Germans must go to Pallet Base to disarm themselves and await further orders about the next phase.
DisarmamentThe Germans have learned that they must disarm the population in order to control them.After Phase 1, the game will be paused, and all players will be required to completely disarm themselves of all airsoft guns, boffers, grenades, and other replica weapons that will be placed into a locked container to which only the field moderators have keys. In the subsequent phases, players will gradually be rearmed with field-owned weapons and eventually their own replicas. If you are unwilling to temporarily relinquish your weapons, then you may not participate in this event. If you are a Partisan and you own any boffers, airsoft spring pistols, spring rifles, spring shotguns, spring-powered bolt-action sniper rifles, low-quality gas-powered pistols/revolvers, grenades, or other atypical airsoft weapons that you'd like to have the possibility of getting earlier access to during the next phase, you may request to hand them over to Omego who will deliver them to the Wolfsschlucht Armory for safekeeping under moderator supervision.
Phase 2: Rise of the ResistanceThis is expected to be the longest phase of the game and could last up to three hours!Rattled by the unexpected Partisan attack, the Germans will start this phase consolidated within the perimeter of their Wolfsschlucht (MAC Complex). Then, they will rotate their squads to guard the Wolfsschlucht, escort their leaders around the AO, arrest wanted fugitives, and terrorize the local inhabitants.The unarmed Partisans will first be tasked with collecting gold bars from around the AO to bring to the Germans at the Armory of the Wolfsschlucht. The Nazis can't resist gold and will eagerly take it in exchange for sharp "tools" that can be used by the Partisans for farming or, perhaps, other endeavors. The Germans may also have some treasure maps to hand out so that even MORE GOLD can be procured!As the Partisans build up their arsenal, they will feel empowered to take bolder actions against the Germans such as taking out Nazi leaders and their guards which will result in finding vouchers for superior weaponry:
There will be several despicable kraut commanders to assassinate:
But, some of these baddies will need to be hit more than once before they fall, so GIVE 'EM HELL!
Phase 3: Into the Eagle's NestEventually, the Partisans will become as well armed as their enemies and will have greater numbers so that they can launch a massive attack on the Wolfsschlucht to take over control of it and ascend the tower to replace the wretched swastika with the beautiful French Tricolour. The Germans will try to hold onto their Führerbunker for as long as they can but will inevitably be pushed back to their uncampable self-respawn at Pallet Base where they will regroup, rearm, and ready themselves for a bloody Blitzkrieg!
Phase 4: SauerkrautBy order of the furious Führer, himself, Germany is back with a brutal offensive to retake the Wolfsschlucht. But, this time, they will sweep through with the benefit of having all of their high-powered weapons unlocked—AEGs, HPA, and more!
Phase 5: Final VictoryThe retreating Partisans will be in for a treat when they receive full access to all of their high-powered weapons so that they can turn around and, once again, eradicate the German scourge from the Wolfsschlucht and achieve final victory! If it's taking too long, Omego will announce that each German gets only one life and no more respawns so that the Partisans will ultimately overrun them and win.
