APEX GRAVITY or any other APEX event held by the Chicago Airsoft Association is a complete effort to host a game where every player knows exactly what is going on, in a cohesive squad, working toward objectives at all times.
We feel this is important, as the more informed the players and squads are... the more competitive the missions, and the better the game.
The Chicago Airsoft Association is fortunate to have the support of Legacy Paintball and Airsoft in Lockport along with many great local airsoft retailers. APEX started as an idea 15 years ago when the CAA started running airsoft games; a continuation of improvement where player feedback is always taken into consideration, efforts are made to provide the best event at the lowest cost, and standards of fair play and tactical ability are maintained and encouraged.
APEX GRAVITY is hosted on 70 acres of land at Legacy Park in Lockport. The game has 13 objectives that are considered targets of opportunity.
These items are actually simulated movement beacons that are moved around the battlefield. Teams will be able to locate them on their free time between critical missions. There are also six total critical missions, of which, each squad will be assigned four.
These missions are timed missions with start time and end time, and involve forces from both teams going head to head for mission completion, with cutting edge prop design from Legacy 3d. Seriously, check it. www.facebook.com/LEGACY3D
Finally, there are team based missions at the beginning and end of the event (start and final battle) that will contribute to certain advantages during the day dependent upon victors and point totals for the overall end of the event.
This is, a scenario driven event, which, is actually linked to a game happening on the same day in the UK being hosted by the Grimsby-Louth Militia. www.facebook.com/grimsbylouth.militia
The situation is as follows, an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile is being prepped to launch from mainland Russia, and it's projected flight path moves toward the UK.
UK forces are attempting on one side to set up equipment to intercept the missile's tracking software so that if it does launch, there is a chance that it may be steered into the ocean harmlessly. There are of course terrorist agents working to stop this plan.
On the US front, here in Lockport, two private military companies are fighting for control of a small array of satellite communications equipment, and ballistic missile defense equipment to either intercept and destroy, guide to other areas, or help detonate the missile if it is launched from Russia.
These forces, are Rainy Day Tactical (GREENFOR)
and Nth Degree Inc. (TANFOR)
The actions that happen in the UK, will add to point totals here in the US, culminating in the first ever (known) intercontinental airsoft event.

If struck with a bb at full health, a player is considered wounded, and any player may come, take their non red bandage, tie it around the wounded player's arm, and that player is then considered restored to health. If a player that has been restored is struck again, that player puts a red rag on his head, and moves smartly to the respawn area to scan in. There is no time delay commonly called a bleedout time, and players waiting to be medic'd or that have become dead may not speak in person or on the radio. If a player is being medic'd he cannot fire or take part until the bandage is securely tightened around his or her arm. Players may “drag” a wounded player to safety by placing a hand on their shoulder and moving with them.
