    Airsoft meetup - Photoshoot (part one)

    Back in July, over 40 FK members gathered in the small town of Dorking, United Kingdom, for a two day airsoft meetup. In between games, the PR team grabbed a couple of FK members aside to immortalize their presence with a picture of two. This article will showcase a few of those members and we couldn't resist ourselves to ask them a couple of questions as well. Meet Silentgunner13, ThatWalder and NotConnor.

    Hi @SilentGunner13, when did you get into airsoft and what makes it so fun to do?
    I got into airsoft around March this year. I'd watched videos around it and always thought it looked like fun but never had the time or money. It was only at the start of this year that I started seriously researching the airsoft scene in Ireland and trying to get an idea of how much it'd cost to get myself set up. I played a few rental games early in the year. @Mittens then invited me down to play airsoft in Wicklow with him, @Whiskers and @SABER. This was the first big game I'd played in an outdoor venue with a gun that wasn't a crap M4/G36 rental (SABRE lent me his LVOA). I also rescued the cat brothers' boots from their mother's house on my way down which is a story in itself. After that I got my own RIFs and started playing a bit more seriously. Airsoft is fun to play for me because its therapeutic. Running around, looking like a badass/idiot/badass idiot and playing a game with a good team is a great way to shake off stress from the previous week at work. Especially when people come to the event with the right attitude and equipment such as radios... and brains. Plus its one of the only times in life where it is socially acceptable to magdump a minor without going to jail.
    As an experienced airsoft player, did you enjoy the FK airsoft weekend?
    I wouldn't say I'm 'experienced'. I'm somewhere around the amateur mark at this point. I don't even have UKARA yet.. however having done a number of games the FK event was fucking fantastic. You saw people from all across the spectrum (in more than one sense of the word) from the guys showing up in tracksuits and hoodies to the guys who've poured hundreds into their gear. But despite this disparity, everybody had fun. People called their hits, nobody got salty, and really it was just like an FK mission in real life with people doing stupid shit I.e. @Whiskers transitioning into a barrel and @Tobe picking a fight with a tree (and losing). Even the total newbies to airsoft got really into it. People really got into the spirit of the weekend and I don't think a single person left that weekend disappointed. I sure as shit didn't. I'd do it again next week if you asked me to... and paid for my airfare....and promised not to send @EHOPPPS to collect me.
    In a big way, I enjoyed the meetup because it was something different. I was getting tired of how monotonous my 9-5 life was getting, so when the opportunity to get shot at by a bunch of people who I've never met (but many I consider good mates) came about ? Fuck yeah, I'm doing that. For me though, the best part was seeing people help each other out. Like @Vesper Akiri helping people with weapon malfunctions or @mulletshock lending me a few spare mags on the Saturday and of course, the legend of @andyt90 lending me his absolute unit of an M16A2. Seeing everybody in person helping each other out, and most importantly, having a good time (especially at the pub) made me realise that despite the running joke about FK being a bit of a toxic community, it isn't in reality. It's filled with a bunch of fucking legends I'm proud to call friends, from all around the world. In fact, the meetup actually dispelled a few misconceptions and judgements that I had made about some people. The meetup just felt like a massive lads (and ladies!) holiday with a bunch of lovable nerds all there to have a good time, and I cannot wait for the next one

    Gear list
    The cap is Viper Tactical
    Weapon is a G&G TR16 (lent from @andyt90, magazines also lent from him) but have my own G&G Raider CM16 SRL and a WE P226
    Gloves are Highlander Raptor fingerless
    Plate Carrier is a an Olive Assault vest from GFC Tactical with mag pouches, IFAK, Radio pouch etc
    Shirt is an Olive UBACS from Magcomsen
    Radio is a Baofeng UV-5R
    Battle belt from bulldog tactical with util pouch, phone pouch, dump pouch and pistol holster
    Multicam trousers from Tacvasen with integrated kneepads
    Multicam Boots from Savage Island
    ThatWalder
     

     
    @ThatWalder, how did you get in to airsoft?
    I got into airsoft due to there being an airsoft society at the university which I attended (then dropped out of after 2 years). I got all my uni housemates into airsoft and the society was full a great group of light minded adults with a secret bloodlust and most of us where gamers at heart. We would go airsoft in a old world war 2 bunker on Tuesday nights and on the Sunday we would head to one of the local outdoor large sites.
    While others went full milsim, you went full slav. What's the story behind the outfit?
    I think I went full slav because a lot of us recently been playing a lot of Escape from Tarkov as a groups and we always seem to have a laugh. I didn't have many milsim gear or equipment but I have bits and bobs which I just scavenged together. So Scav Slav was born from that.
    Gear list
    Slav Walder
    Adidas striped tracksuit bottoms
    Adidas striped tracksuit hoodie
    Uskanka hat
    steel toe cap boots
    @Vesper Akiri's AK
    Other gear: South African Assault Vest, Olive Viper Long sleeve shirt, Nuprol olive half mask and Nuprol mesh eye pro (always wear protection kids)
     
    NotConnor
     

     
    @Not Connor, we've got to ask the story behind your outfit. Were you inspired by something, or just felt like not going full camo?
    I was kind of inspired by a lot of what ive seen from PJs and PRs in the US special forces, just kind of looking serious and geared up and wearing a silly shirt (hawaiian) or otherwise, so its always been a thing to keep it serious but also have a bit of fun with it.
    What's your most memorable experience from the FK airsoft meetup, or the FK meetup in general?
    It was probably when @Tobe demolished the barrel in like the second game, or even the last game with him playing it in a cheerleader outfit.
    Gear List
    The carrier was a JPC style plate carrier with some mag pouches on the side as well as a dangler for some storage
    The most notable other things about the loadout would just be the holster (modified drop holster)
    Two toned CZ-P09 pistol by ASG
    The clothing was mostly cheap stuff i actually got for the meetup, stuff i didnt mind getting dirty and again going for a special forces kind of look where things like uniform and camo dont matter as much as style
    The rifle I borrowed from @mulletshock as well as the sling, but all other equipment used was mine.

    Zeus Tag Application & Evaluation system
    This topic contains all the information you need to apply for Co-Zeus or Zeus tag.

But be aware that we expect people to understand the importance of good zeusing, so we will carefully examine the applications. Main requirement is to have Reg+ status in the community. Read More...

    Server Specs
    Although FK 3, 4 and 5 have been a part of fuck knows for months now, very few know much about the actual box. So for all you nerds out there here are the specs for the server hosting FK 3, 4 and 5.

    "Be Better" -Sabre
    "Mullet Gey" -Katla_Haddock
    "Goodbye then. Be safe, Friend. Don't you dare go Hollow." - TheMinion

    FK Squad server coming soon

    FKGaming is pumped to announce the development our very own Squad server. Squad is a tactical FPS trying to bridge the gap between lightweight arcade shooters and hardcore military simulators. Providing large scale, combined arms combat and authentic combat experiences. Achieve victory through teamwork, communication and tactical gameplay; making it a perfect fit for FKgaming's community mindset.
    Already back in November 2017, FKGaming hosted a Squad server during a free weekend on Steam. Although the game is still in Alpha, the growth of Squad has not gone unnoticed and will provide FK members with a military playground in a welcoming PVP setting. The upcoming release of our Squad server could not have better timing as the game is currently available for only $12 through Humble Bundle.
    We will announce the exact launch date in a future post, but we couldn't wait to share this server update with you. This also gives you plenty of time to buy Squad with a great discount through Humble Bundle, as the discounted price is only available until September 6th.
    The hosting of our Squad server does not increase our monthly donation goals, as it will be hosted on our current server box infrastructure. Depending on technical limitations, the closure of one of our less frequently used ARMA 3 servers is possible.

    Trainer’s Top Tips
    Squad Lead Information MK2 - By AndyT90
    As a Squad Leader, you are responsible for the squad and the actions it takes. You make sure the squad executes the plan, the squad has the equipment needed for the task at hand, and make sure that the squad doesn't die. While you may think that you only have an effect on your own squad's enjoyment of the mission, it is definitely possible to influence others as well. A squad that sets up overwatch on the same position as another squad or in front of a tank, a squad leader with terrible comms and a squad that doesn't properly clear their sector are some of the biggest annoyances experienced in missions. You can not judge your competence as a squad leader just by what your squad members say, especially when it is always the same people. Even then, what does the person do well? What should a squad leader be able to do? Read more...

    New Server Activity Bot - by Neilzar
    We have created a new discord bot to manage the Arma servers. The staff team can use the bot to update the mods on the servers, restart the server and kick people when required without having to launch Arma or go to the website of Arma Remote Admin. But that is not the only thing the bot does! In the new #servers channel on discord are five messages, one for each of the servers that show whether the server is online, the current map and the players on the server. If you ever need to know if a server is free or see what map people are playing on at the moment, you can check the live status messages that are updated every five minutes. See our Discord

    After Action Report
    After a brush with a griffon, our heros approach the village seeking a place to rest for the night. As they approach the village from the beach, they encounter a local denizen of the murky deeps which left they unharmed after being feed. They quickly explored the village seeing clear signs of past struggles. Many of the doors and windows have been torn or knocked down. As they prepared for night fall, a small note was found in the large fire pit on the top of the signal tower which warned any living soul that should they stay the night, "They will come and bring you before their lord". With their defenses built and the sun sets, the heros settle down with the hopes of a quite night. The Blood Peninsula may have other plans, as when the sun sets the true horrors awake. Read more...

    The old money issue

    Good day to you all. The CM Team has had a look into our safe. To our great displeasure we have found, that (as it currently stands) we do not have enough money to carry us into September. 
    The money from donations goes towards paying for our servers that we use to play, talk and have fun. So if you enjoy your time here, we would like to ask each and everyone of you to open your wallets and leave a donation to keep this place running. Please also do so once a goal has been reached already. The excess money will be stored in our "rainy day fund". This is the money we use to pay for the servers when we do not reach our goals for a month. Even 1 or 2 Euros will help. Every bit counts.
    You can find the donation page here.
    Thank you all for reading (and hopefully leaving a donation )
