American Milsim players are expected to be self-sufficient. If you are camping on site, you will need to bring the typical type camping gear – Tent, canopy, sleeping bag, water, food medication, etc…
Most players bring a FOB (Forward Operating Base) bag that will contain: BBs, batteries, extra weapons systems, flash light, extra eye pro, water, snacks / food, medication, first aid kit, spare parts, etc. Having this staged at your FOB helps prevent players from having to head back to their vehicles for items.
AMS events are typically broken up into two evolutions, one Saturday and one Sunday. Typical playtime is around eight hours on Saturday and around four hours on Sunday.
The next step is to make sure you have read and understand the rules, you have the proper faction uniform and then join your faction’s Facebook group (they can be found on the American Milsim’s main Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/AmericanMilSim/). Once on your faction page, you can ask questions and be part of the command planning process.
American Milsim Local (AMSL) events are held at local established fields to help support and grow that community and encourage the new players to get involved with MILSIM.
