This is a special themed event with different rules and setup to our normal games.

A hybrid of a Sunday Skirmish a BattleSim and a Mil-Sim, this event features a backstory to build and enhance the immersion and realism. Operation Green Sceptre is a two day event hosted at Ground Zero Airsoft (organisers of the National Airsoft Festival) located in Ringwood, Hampshire.

This event is a more scripted and organised game than our usual skirmishes, aimed at realism and immersion in the storyline that accompanies the missions and objectives. These will be decided on the outcome of the events that precede them, in an ever changing storyline where the outcome of this game will forge the next chapter. If you like MilSim or BattleSim style games but don't want to go the whole hog, then this is the event for you.

All patrols, missions and objectives for United World Task Force will be issued by team commanders in your Garrison or FOB. The game will feature medic rules, with the United World Task Force forces having ammo limits along with rules of engagement. Gameplay will stop on Saturday night and begin again on Sunday morning.

The site shop (run by Zero One Airsoft) and our resident burger van will be open on site, but there will be no other stalls at this event.

Camping is included for all participants; or you are welcome to go home at the end of day 1 and come back for the game to resume on day 2.

There will be no armband identification at this event. For realism, the factions will be identified by the clothing that they wear. There are several choices for each team.

Location: Ungoza, North East Zamona Territories.

The year is 2030. Worldwide leaders and governments have abandoned the idea of using their own costly military, and have instead elected to use a new combined military made up of the best soldiers from around the world, The United World Task Force (UWTF).

Although it’s conception was to thwart any threat of invasion against its member countries, the organisation has been involved in dubious dealings around the globe, and many have questioned if the loyalty of the UWTF lies with their commanders, or the countries they represent.

The United World Task Force are currently deployed in Ungoza as a peace keeping force to bring stability to the area, and to ensure that the locals, who object to what they see as their ‘occupation’ by the UWTF, are subdued and remain compliant. The locals however have formed a rough and hasty allegiance simply called “For The People” and have begun sabotaging the structure of the UWTF and killing their troops.

As part of the United World Task Force’s peace keeping duties, area patrols and base defences must be maintained. They will also be deployed to special ops that will be revealed as the event unfolds. The UWTF will have combat medic support, and will also be restricted by rules of engagement so as not to endanger civilian lives.

For The People will not be bound by these western rules. They will do whatever is necessary to liberate their country. FTP plan to fight in overwhelming numbers, utilising where possible intelligence leaked to them via their leaders. They will be fighting to win, guerrilla style!

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the FPS limits?
»
Our FPS Limits are always measured with a 0.20g BB

  • 350 FPS with an AEG / pistol (must not exceed 1.14 joules)

  • 425 FPS semi-automatic (with a 4 second pause between shots to simulate cocking) (1.68 joules )

  • 500 FPS with a bolt action rifle (maximum 2.32 joules)


Minimum engagement range for any gun firing over 350 FPS is 30 meters.
To be classed as semi auto at 425 FPS, the gun must have no full auto capability at all.

Zero One Airsoft have made a handy dandy FPS calculator to help you work out what your gun is firing at.

You can do either, teams are welcome but your team commander will assign groups each time an objective or patrol is needed.
Can I bring a generator?
»
Yes, but please operate it at sensible times or marshals may ask you to shut it down.
Can I bring a dog?
»
No, I am afraid the estate do not allow us to have dogs on site.
Can I use pyro on site?
»
Hot burning pyros, like Enola Gaye, TLSFx or Danger Zone are not allowed, not even the ring pull versions.

If you want to use grenades then purchase either a blank firing grenade (9mm or below) or something that uses gas or compressed air to fire. Please note that due to some BFGs not being "proof" marked we are only able to allow Dynatex to use 9mm blanks, and all other makes can use .209 primer shells.
How far is the parking from the campsite?
»
The game area is less than 5 minutes from the camping area.
Can I bring a caravan or campervan?
»
Yes, but you must use that as your living, sleeping and socializing area. You will not be permitted to pitch a tent or a marquee in addition to your caravan (excluding awning) as it will occupy too much space forcing others to camp further away than necessary. Please also note that this is a field being used and not a campsite, so there are no electrical hookups or anywhere to dump your chemical toilets!
Are there any showers?
»
No, I am afraid we do not have showers on site.
Are there battery & phone charging facilities?
»
We do offer NiMH, NiCd and LiPo battery charging facilities in the main field however there is always a long queue. If possible please make sure you have enough batteries/charge in them to last you.

We do not offer sockets for phone charging.
Are HPA guns allowed?
»
They are permitted, as long as they conform to our normal FPS limits and have the ability to be tournament locked. This applies to ALL HPA guns regardless of make or model and there will be no exclusions. If you do not have the ability to tournament lock the gun, then you will not be able to use it.
Can I make a camp fire or use a BBQ?
»
BBQ's must be mounted off the ground on their stands, not directly on the grass. Any fire within your BBQ that isn't for cooking purposes comes under the category of open camp fires. Camp fires will be permitted with the following conditions: Any fire must be above ground level, in a metal container. There will be a designated "fire" camping zone that is out in the open, away from any trees and dry wood. If you want a fire, you must pitch your camp in this area - any fire outside of this zone will be extinguished.
What are the medic/dead rules?
»
First Hit: Any player can use YOUR token to revive you.

Second Hit: Only a team medic (from any team) can revive you using one of their tokens.

Third Hit: You are DEAD and must return to your regen area.

If you do not get medical assistance after 5 minutes of being hit, you will bleed out and must return to your regen area.
I've lost my booking details, how can I find them?
»
Head over to our Booking Recovery Form and we can send you an email with your booking details on.
If I do not camp, does the price change?
»
The price includes free camping, whether you choose to stay or not. There is no discount if you choose to leave the site as facilities have already been organised.
Can I wear a ghillie suit?
»
The UWTF troops can wear ghillie suits, because they have been issued them.

FTP were not prepared for the invasion, and do not have such resources available to them.

The correct base camo must still be worn under your ghillie suit. It will be your responsibility to make sure you are not shot by your own team.
