LAC 2021 introduces airsoft to the rolling hills and densely populated woods of the Lincolnshire wolds, where even experienced players can feel alone with nothing to see for miles.
This site is demanding not only because of the steep inclines and thick vegetation but is also mentally demanding and forces players to meticulously plan each engagement; The Big One is not for the faint of heart!
Everywhere you look there are surprises and potential threats to discover and because of the hidden outposts and strategic forest clearings, you never know what (or who) could be around the next corner.
For any player who wishes to come play here, we stress the importance of preparation and forethought. The Big One is not named as such lightly, and as well as the supportive footwear and protective gear we recommend, we also strongly advise that players also carry water as well as their plentiful supply of ammunition; in order to keep both you and your gear at peak performance throughout the day.
When players drive into the site they will feel as if they are leaving all civilisation and when arriving at the safe zone will feel an atmosphere very different from a regular enclosed site. The open-air safe zone is flanked by hills and offers a uniquely expansive area for players to rest between games and soak in the surroundings. Although there are no permanent structures, there are toilet facilities and mobile traders that attend, offering a miniature market style atmosphere at peak times, with players often bringing camp chairs and picnics to make the most of the opportunity.
Although the safe zone is a pleasant and relaxing environment, once the day begins you will find a world of intense engagements awaits. With there being almost no flat ground on site and a series of thick vegetation surrounding multiple woods, you must always remain alert to spot your enemy and avoid an unsuspecting ambush. Standard airsoft tactics are put to the test and players will have to rely on each other to make it past the multitude of encounters they will face throughout the day.
Those who wear ghillie suits and other camouflage systems will be highly rewarded for their stealth and their dreams of crossing whole engagements unnoticed can become a reality. A team of snipers can turn the tide of a battle, but make sure you’re not spotted; because there’s nowhere to run if you are! The Big One is a physically demanding site that also favours the more experienced player. With a feeling that the only support you have is those around you, teamwork and communication is vital if you want to ensure success in this wild, overgrown expanse.
