Paragliding at Bukit Jugra today. There are a lot of fun things to do right here if you know where to look for them. Which is why I haven’t left Asia for 3 years.
First Airsoft game in Thailand, and after years of watching videos of zombie scenarios on YouTube this was also my first Zombie game ever!
The premise of the day-long MILSIM is shooting up bad guys who were doing some zombie experimentation – who in turn showed up at the later part of the day and night.
(Learned some of the ‘terrorists’ were Thai Police, which explains their skilled shooting – if it were real war, I would’ve died way back at the lake from the first stage, lol)
It is a shame indeed that despite bringing 2 GoPro cameras, I spent more time adjusting them than full immersion – or rather focused on shooting back. Hope there are better videos and pics to be collected soon.
About a dozen participants with a mix of experienced airsofters and some first-timers.
Weather was hotter than in Malaysia; I stripped my uniform along the way as time went on.
Airsoft guns used are WE M4 GBBR with the exception of the M60 AEG, which I used briefly too.
I’ve also learned to be more… understanding of ‘stupid’ characters in zombie shows. You know, those guys who stand around to be eaten and you wonder why they don’t just run away.
Because there’s fatigue, reloading isn’t as easy as in the video games, rounds are limited (all guns are gas blow back) and throw in panic, confusion, and duller sense by night… I was this close to become zombie food, lol
Check out the video here:
All in all, it was good fun!
There’s a lot of potential and possibilities for the Zombie MILSIM game to expand. I suggested to the Organizers at SIAM MILSIM to perhaps consider a survival scenario next bout with more zombies, and less ammo. That will put everyone in the REAL test for wits… and yeah, have the zombies run too!
Worth the trip to Thailand for a unique experience which I don’t have to fly to Europe or US to get. I might come back again if the scenario is unique and I’d like to come with friends next bout.
