Hey everyone, following on from the ever popular Slaydies Series Spotlights, I give you the next instalment: Brianna Hill otherwise known as suby_grl4, an Airsofter straight outta West Virginia!

Hi Brianna, thank you for offering to take part in the Femme Fatale Airsoft Slaydies Series Spotlights! Can you tell my readers a little more about yourself?

My name is Brianna Hill, call sign suby_grl4. I am 23 years old, and I am from Buckhannon, WV. I graduated from West Virginia Wesleyan College last year with Bachelor degrees in Psychology, Sociology, and Gender Studies. I am currently a full time manager at Advance Auto Parts. I have taken a break from furthering my education, so I can travel, have new experiences, and hit up some airsoft fields along the way. Plus I love cars, so I like my current occupation.

How long have you been into Airsoft?

I have been airsofting since February of 2015, and I have fallen in love with the sport.

How did you get into Airsoft and what do you love about it?

My boyfriend is the manager of my local Airsoft field, and he introduced me to the sport.

I like the sense of community that comes with Airsoft.  Everyone at my local field is like a giant family where we all come down to play Airsoft, but our friendship has extended to other things such as going on trips, to the movies, dinner, etc. I also love travelling to other fields to play. Going to a new field is exciting! The adrenaline is rushing because you are somewhere new and do not know the layout of the field, you get to see different play styles, and get to interact with other players.

Where is your home site?

My home site is M2 Bravo Tactical and Hobby, L.L.C in Buckhannon, WV. They also have another field that use to be a middle school in Lumberport, WV.

What is the most memorable site you've played?

The most memorable sites for me were Ballahack in Virginia and Tactical Airsoft Arena in Maryland. Ballahack was the first real outdoor field that I have gone to, and it was the total opposite to what I am use to. Playing outside in the swamps plus having medic rules was something to get used to. Tactical Airsoft Arena is an indoor field that is very tight at around 3,000 square feet. I love indoor, but I was not use to quarters that close. It takes some courage to pop around the corner of the buildings. It is definitely not a place to camp, you do better moving around the field.

How would you describe your playing style?

I am an indoor CQB, kind of speed soft player. I am not a fan of Milsim-style game play.  I like the fast-pace of indoor and being able to quickly find an opponent. Getting to run around the field and flank people on the other team is a lot of fun. I would honestly be happy with playing team death match every game, but I like some objective games such as King of the Hill, capture the flag, crossfire, etc. 

What is your weapon of choice and your favourite loadout?

My weapon of choice is my H&K 416 with a G&G rechargeable tracer unit (I have a hood wrap with my gun in the decal!). It is a very long, heavy full metal gun, but I love it. I have adapted my play style to being able to run my gun. I wear a bright green Valken paintball mask with a shemagh. I have a black Condor vest that carries my four midcap twinkie mags, a holster for my Wildberry Walther PPQ, and pouches for four pistol mags, and a pouch for my Goblin Solo with two shells. I also wear some form of long sleeve shirt with shin guards to protect my arms and Valken Impact two-finger gloves. And my last, must have gear is my Woodland camo Valken Zulu pants.

What does being a woman in Airsoft mean to you?

Being a woman in Airsoft is tough at times, but I like the challenge of breaking down the negative stereotypes.  It is still a male dominated sport, but more and more women are becoming involved. Every few months or so, the guys let me run a free women’s night, where women and girls come down to play for free. Many of the new women players said that they felt less intimidated and more willing to try airsoft on the all-girls nights.Then shortly after that we have an all-women’s event where we play games, do drawings for prizes, and overall have a really good time.  

Where can my readers find you on social media?


Lastly, is there anything you wish to say to my readers?

I am so happy that there are sites, such as Women of Airsoft where we can all have a safe place to talk and share our experiences.
