This limestone mine system has been converted to a paintball facility. We were attending for the annual Pump and Knife only game with Damage Inc. It was the first game of the day. We were moving cautiously throught the complex, trying to take it all in because we had never played here before. I hadn’t been able to walk the “field” prior to the game, and felt quite vulnerable because of it.
We thought we had cornered some of the enemy, but were mistaken. I heard footsteps coming at me fast from the far right side and by the time i turned to aim it was over. I had been "ran by knifed". He slashed my arm and was able to get one more person before being eliminated. As I walked back to the staging area I still couldn’t believe I had been knifed. When my fellow team mates saw me they thought I had cut myself and were at first concerned. After explaining my elimination we all laughed.
Since this game I have been working on my own knifing skills and have been improving in hand to hand combat. With my own knife now and an Airowgun I’ve become a silent killing machine.
