Hey everyone! Welcome back to the blog!

Today I'm reviving series of blog posts that haven't been seen on the blog since early 2017 - the player spotlights. The community has changed SO much in the last 2 years that I felt like it was time these posts made a comeback. Here you can learn more about content creators and players making a difference in the community. First up in the newest series of player spotlights is @undeadfred12. I started following Undead's account in 2014, just after I started playing and met him for the first time on my first visit to the United States in 2017. This SoCal airsoft player is passionate about the game, plays hard and to win.

How long have you been playing Airsoft? What originally got you into it?

I've playing airsoft now for about 10 years. My neighbor and his son went to our local field regularly and my stepdad had asked about it and brought me along with them one Sunday to try it. out. It was such a rush the first time playing, I ended up really liking it and asking to go with them regularly, they let me use their gear until I saved up to buy my own rifle and eventually from there I became more and more passionate about airsoft and it’s turned into something back then I’d never in a million years believe would be possible.

What’s your playing style?

I like to stay adaptable, usually whatever the task at hand dictates. I used to just be super fast but since injuring my knee it’s forced me to slow things down a little, but I like this new perspective as it’s a challenge but it’s the experience I gain from it that matters I feel.

Are you a woodland player? CQB fan? Or do you like to mix it up?

Woodland if I had to pick one! I do enjoy airsoft anywhere though. CQB is fun and fast-paced but I really enjoy nature so it’s awesome to be outdoors cause it’s like hiking and camping with friends but you get to shoot each other lol

What can we see you running on the field? 

Gloves I’d say are mando with any kit, it’s simple but an important part. I’m learning more and more that they are often overlooked, but I’m kind of a glove geek. I’m always changing and trying different ones also I blow through them pretty rapidly 😅 You can see me rocking my 'face' as I call it (skull mask) it started as just something I thought was cool as I’ve always had a thing for masks ever since I was little, but now it’s really become a part of me and holds a lot of sentimental value to me.

What’s your most memorable event?

This one is a tough one because there’s so many, but my favorites definitely would have to be every Uprising/frostbite at Hill559! That field really has a place in my heart, every op I’ve done there has been a unique and memorable experience for me with the best people I have the privilege of calling my close friends. Also DesertFox events are my one of my favorites because it’s like a big reunion as everyone is all in one place and it’s just the best time ever and definitely something I now look forward to every year.

Is there any advice you can give to other players out there?

Drink water! and just have fun! Airsoft is an experience and meant to be enjoyed, make memories with your friends as life is short. What I found myself doing was worrying about irl stuff while I’m at airsoft which makes it not an escape like it’s meant to be, airsoft is your individual experience and what you make of it, that’s why I love it the freedom to choose to be whatever you want to be and I firmly believe in self-expression and being true to yourself.
