Winning the Day!!
The leaves rustled in the wind. The sun was low on the horizon.
It would be dark soon. The mission was to eliminate the other
teams commander and take their flag back to the our teams base,
but the teams had gotten caught up in a ferocious fire fight in
the center of the field and neither was taking any ground.
last effort to surprise the other team and get the upper hand I
decided to go deep into the woods and sneak my way into enemy
territory. From there i could try to tag the enemy commander and
hopefully create some confusion.
I told my buddy to cover me and i
dashed into the trees. The yelling and shooting of the battle
seemed far off now, but I knew not to let my guard down.
oposing team had a trench base in this part of the woods and I
would have to make my way past it without being noticed,
thankfully the angle of the sun created long dark shadows
throughout the forest. I suddenly became aware of the sound of
laughter and low voices to my left slowly got to my stomach and
crawled behind a giant oak. The two figures passed by unaware that
they were being watched, the one closest to me began to whistle as
he walked through woods. The two of them seemed to be enjoying
themselves they were talking about what would be the best
upgrades for their guns and what is the best mask. The pump arm
on my phantom slid smoothly back ending with a quiet click, the
figure closest to me turned to his comrade and slowly whispered
"did you hear something?" "Its probably just a bird or a
squirrel" said his friend.
At this point I had had enough and
popped out from behind the oak and fired a bright orange
paintball at the one closest as he quickly headed for the field
exit. His buddy turned toward me, but before he could fire i had
placed a nice orange splotch between his eyes. OUT! he followed
the path of his friend and I continued on my mission.
appoint the trench base just as darkness settled in, I could only
see two guards peering out into the darkness in front of them. One
was in a fox hole surrounded by sand bags, and the other was
patrolling the trench. Once again the pump arm slid back with a
click and I was ready to go. I shot one at the one in the trench
first but the paintball fell short. I knew exactly what it was, I
was out of co2! I ducked back behind an old car that was placed
there for cover and quickly changed my 12 gram cartridge, by this
time the two guards had started to fire into the woods.
Fortunately they had not seen me but they were still a threat. I
picked up my empty 12gram cartridge and threw it into a bush far
to my right. They took the bait and started to lay paint on the
bush, as I quietly moved to a better position. I snapped out and took
out the one in the fox hole. The other one, realizing that he was
all alone, turned and ran for help but he was stopped by a well
placed paintball in the back!
I reached the edge of the
clearing surrounding their main base, refilled my stick feed
and started thinking of a plan of assault. The commander was in a
room on the second floor of the two floor base and there were three
stairways leading up to the second floor. One was at the back and
well hidden, the second was at the front and was in plain view
from anyone facing toward it and the third was inside and had to
be accessed via a door on the wall facing me. From where I was it
looked as if most of the guards were on the second floor because
they could shoot out at the surrounding area from there. I chose
to go for the concealed back stairway. There was a guard walking
on the balcony above it, but i waited until he was out of sight
and then ran for it. When I reached the wall I tucked into it as
close as possible and tried to blend in, i then cocked my gun and
began climbing the stairs at a very slow and quiet rate.There was
a guard at the top but he was facing the other way. I crept up
behind him and whispered "Mercy" he was well aware of the mercy
rule and walked down the stairs and called himself out. I
squeezed myself into a little cubby space in the wall and waited
for awhile to make sure that none of his buddies noticed that he
was gone. It was then that I noticed the flag hanging at the end
of the hallway that i was in.
I checked to make sure that no one
was paying attention and I pulled it down, but as I did some of
the opposing team noticed and they cornered me in a room. There
was no way that they could get in and get me, but there was also no
way that I could get out and get them. After a while I heard the
sounds of firing getting closer and I realized that my team must
be getting close. Then all or a sudden I heard "Mercy!!" "OUT!"
BANG! BANG! "OUT!" "MERCY" and through the doorway burst my
Together with members of my team again we started to take
over the enemy base, I gave the flag to one of my teammates who
took it back to our base then we went hunting for the commander.
One of my buddies was the first to observe that there was a only
one room left that we haven't gone into. I pushed the door open
and my team mates covered me. Then everything got very loud and
crazy, first i got Merced then my teammates yelled mercy and then
a fire fight broke out but I didn't get to see all that happened
because i was on my way to the dead zone.
At the end of the day
the opposing teams commander congratulated me for being so brave
and my team cheered me on. The field that was running the big
game give out prizes and i ended up winning the, Most valuable
player prize witch was free entry to the next big game, an arm
patch, and 1000 paintballs I cant wait to go next year!
