Weapons restrictions, medics, packing list and admin expectations.



Expectations for Scout/Raider units.


1. conduct themselves in a professional manner.

2. Police themselves at all times especially in the patrol base.

3. Stay mission oriented.

4. Keep focused on your task at hand.

5. When in need of a mission contact command or Game Control before conducting your own operations.

6. When possible conduct small operations to interrupt cost/UFS actions on the field. Hit fast, hit often, and then break contact.

7. Above all else, stay safe and have fun.



In 2016 United Federal Command stood up a platoon of scouts to conduct direct action missions and reconnaissance for UFS Command. They conducted Day and night interdiction operations which help UFS Command with their daily operations.


Broken Home 7

Cost Raiders and UFS Scouts will be active on the Broken Home AO conducting day and night operations.


What makes one a Raider/Scout?

These are the alphas of the group, the people who enjoy pushing themselves as hard as they can.

This will be very physically and mentally challenging for some and easy for others.


You will need to have the ability to use gps or have a gps app on your phone or tablet.


You will be required to stay in the field at all times, you may not leave the AO for any reason except an approved emergency or if you drop out.


Cost Raiders and UFS Scouts will be tasked with direct action missions plus reconnaissance for their faction. You will not be a part of the line troops and will conduct activities solely based on commands needs. You will be the eyes and ears of your faction.


A minimal packing list will be posted, these are minimal items needed to conduct operations for two nights and two days. What ever you add to this list is up to you. Remember, you won’t be leaving the field for extra items, forgotten items, or a broken gun.



Medic: all Scouts and Raiders will be considered medics.


Weapons restrictions.

LMG’s will not be allowed.

2 snipers per team.

Riflemen may carry a sniper rifle but it can not be their primary weapon. Their primary weapon must be with them at all times.

2 DMR per team.
