Customer War Stories: Max Moawad
August 29, 2013
“My most epic story started out at fallen warriors airsoft field, a nice field near Lower Cincinnati. It was just before lunch time and we were playing a VIP rescue game. I was on the terrorists team (we had to protect the VIP in the kill house and not let the others retrieve him).
Even though I usually play support or assault for our team, I decided the stay up in a two story sniping tower. My scar H could still reach out to hit advancing players but was useless against long range engagements. As the game horn blew I readied my mag into my gun and prepared for a hell of a game. Our team split into four groups, each in which had 2 squads of four: squad alpha (my squad), who stayed and protected the VIP, squad bravo, who advanced in the forest to our left, squad Charlie, who stayed in a courtyard around 50 feet from the kill house, and squad we-don’t-want-to-be-named-squad-delta or W.D.W.T.B.C.S.D for short. (they were the jokers of the team) who advanced from the courtyard squad Charlie stayed in.
The enemy team decided to do similar to us, and split in multiple groups. I could see most of the entire A.O. From the tower I was in and decided to shout out their positions to my team. I called out to squad Charlie and W.D.W.T.B.C.S.D and told them about a incoming group straight ahead of them. To my liking, they went and easily cleared the enemies. But as I looked back, A large group was advancing 12 o’clock from our position. Little did I know that they brought two snipers in there group. Before I could react, a bb whizzed by my head. They just barely missed! I quickly kneeled to cover as a second bb plinked of the tower wall. Over the course of five minutes or so I kept peeking up to see what was going on. I remembered not keep a steady pattern so they couldn’t place a solid shot as I looked up. What happened is the majority of the group (excluding the snipers) continued into the forest which squad bravo was covering. I couldn’t inform bravo since they were too far out of range of hearing.
After some time, a second group started moving in on the courtyard. I told my teammates and they prepared to counter attack. Unfortunately a hidden player popped out some bushes and launched an ambush. This started an all out firefight. As the overwhelming sound of bb’s being sprayed filled the courtyard our team was being pushed back. One after another our players were being picked off. only 4 players remained of the two squads out there. They retreated to the kill house making the players left protecting the vip twelve (the four and squad alpha).
As the enemies took the courtyard, they came into range of my weapon. I was able to take one before taking cover from the thousands of bb’s from the rest of the enemy squad. I couldn’t breathe without another hundred bb’s fly over to try hit me. I decided to wait, stay laying in the tower until someone else distracted them. It took a while but they eventually did. And before being able to cook up a plan, they stormed the building. They took everyone else, only loosing a few themselves. But still I remained, they forgot of me. “This is it” a said to my self as I got up. “Only one shot at this”
As soon as I heard “VIP captured!” (It isn’t end of game since they still have to take the VIP back to there base) I zipped around the corner scar in hand and instantly “pop pop, pop pop pop, pop” I went aim bot on them one to another and took six at once! The vip was saved! Two more came in, one from a window, one from a door. I shot at the window and got him in mid climb, causing him to fall backwards. It still wasn’t enough time to hit the other so I hid hoping he wouldn’t find me (by then the six or so enemies are standing around bleeding out. They can’t tell him about me because of the “no dead man talking” rule, and besides, the VIP who is a field ref is right there also). The hostile checks the building before clearing the tower (which I’m in), and then meets up with me at a corner forcing us to both be “hit”.
I was able to rack up a few more kills by the end of the game, but that moment was like no other. I was the snipers main target, I got to inform my team of enemies like an over watch, and got a insane multi kill. I was a well know player that day…. And that, was my most epic moment”
