Airsoft Close Quarters Battles (CQB) or Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT) are intense, fast paced, and often involve close up airsoft action. The gear you use and the tactics you implement can make a difference when things get interesting during a game.
In this video, I’ll show you guys the gear I chose while playing at Intrigue Airsoft in Kansas City, MO, to make me more effective on the field.
I’ll also show you a RARE FULL AUTO Round that I played while there! Most fields only allow semi for tactical and safety reasons. But, for the last game of the night, everyone decided that a final five minute full auto round would be a great way to finish off the evening.
Although this was not my best round of the night, it was one of the most fun and unique games I’ve been in. I hope you guys enjoy!
My Goofs in this Round
Although this round was fun, I got hit a lot (as you probably noticed). One of the best and worst things about running a camera is that everything, good and bad, is caught on camera. A benefit of this is that you can analyze your game play and make yourself a better airsoft warrior.
After going back through the footage of that round, I noticed what my main issues were. I want to share those with you so you don’t make the same mistakes.
During the round, I noticed I was very distracted. From getting my teammate’s lost item to trying to figure out who was friend or foe, I lost my concentration multiple times. Correcting this really boils down to controlling your focus and letting your teammates do their job, instead of trying to be everywhere at once.
Stay Low and Move
Most of the times I got hit, I was standing and making myself a nice target in a window frame or hallway. When you have the chance in a battle, get down in a safe place, think through your next move and work with your teammates to accomplish the mission.
Focus On Key Enemy Positions
You will realize the enemy team was focusing on holding the center of the field. They almost always had someone defending there, and those enemy players got the most hits on me.
For most of the game, I failed to focus on coming up with a solution to defeat that key point. As you will notice at the end of the video, I was able to move into the center field, and start neutralizing that key enemy point, although a bit too late in the game.
I hope that my experience will help you to avoid the same mistakes. I want to congratulate the enemy team for an excellent defense and a great full auto round.
I want to extend a special thanks to Intrigue Airsoft and all the staff there for the great night of airsoft battling. I can’t wait to get back up there for some more great airsoft CQB game play. Be sure to check out IntrigueAirsoft.com to plan your trip!
