Win a chance to shoot us in the face to celebrate Ghost Recon Wildlands’ launch

2 min read


The Ghost Recon: Wildlands beta has come to an end, but that doesn’t mean the fun needs to stop. Ghost Recon Wildlands brings its open world, tactical, best-experiences-in-co-op gameplay to PCs and consoles next week. To celebrate that, there’s a Ghost Recon Wildlands launch event. It’s a strictly invite-only affair – and will involve a day of airsoft, and the opportunity to shoot Gavin the in face.

If ever there was a reason to enter a competition, this would be it. We’ve got a spot for one winner and a friend to join us for a day of shooting at each other in a remote location in Gauteng. Yes, this means that the competition is only open to people who reside in Gauteng, have their own transport and because shooting is involved, are over 18.

The event takes place this Saturday, 4 March and is – as I said – an entire day of airsoft and shenanigans.

Worth it though, because you get to shoot Gavin in the face. All you need to do to be in contention is fill out this form. And dream as I do, of shooting Gavin in the faaaaaace.

I live in JHB, and over 18, and understand that I must make my own way to the event.

If you’re not in Gauteng, and this makes you sad – keep an eye out, as we’ll have more Ghost Recon goodness to give away that isn’t restricted to Jhb. It doesn’t involve shooting Gavin in the face though.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor
  • MonsterCheddar

    Travel to the Colonies. PFFFFT. No, ewww. Vile vile vile….. 😛

    • Pfft yeah, I’ll stick to the coast thanks.

      Damn elitists.

  • Shooting people in the face sounds fun!

    • VampyreSquirrel

      It’s in our area of the woods too!

  • .. I think Geoff wants someone to shoot me in the face.

    The event is being held in a deserted ghost town on the West Rand. about 40 minutes from Randburg.. It does look awesome though

    • VampyreSquirrel

      What tells you that he wants that? I didn’t pick that up from reading the article.

  • “Win a chance to shoot us in the face”

    t’s & c’s apply… AKA “shoot Gavin” xD

  • Original Heretic

    If you bring it to PE, can we shoot Darryn in the face?

  • Magoo

    Oh boy!

  • HairyEwok

    What if you live close-ish to Gauteng and willing to drive to the “undisclosed” location.

    • If you can make it to the West Rand of Johannesburg on Saturday morning then click that check box and enter…

      • Sageville

        I assume they tie you down when we shoot you in the face?

        Cause I’m a shit bad shot, I may need multiple tries, only the face counts neh? I mean if I repeatedly miss and say all shots hit you in the knads, I’d still get a do-over neh?

        – Asking for a friend…

        • Original Heretic

          If you’re looking to inflict some pain, don’t go for the nads. Anyone who knows anything about paintball is going to wear a box.
          Inner thigh or neck, that’s where to aim. I’ve been shot everywhere and those two places were by far the most painful.

          • HairyEwok

            But but… Sniper Elite taught me otherwise.

          • Original Heretic

            Sniper Elite? You looking to kill the okes out there?!?

            Heh, unless you have your own gun, you’re not going to get much sniping done. The guns supplied at the airsoft/paintball ranges are generally not all that accurate.

          • HairyEwok

            It’s ok. Ill spray and pray then, at least one paintball has to hit some persons nether region.

          • Sageville

            *takes notes

  • VampyreSquirrel

    If I win, I’ll send all the pics I can take to Otto

    • pfff. I would go if I lived in the better part of SA.

      Nothing to do with Ubisoft xD

      • VampyreSquirrel

        You just want to shoot Gavin IN THE FACE right?

  • Nikola

    If Geoff will be there to shoot in the face I will definitely love to be there:)

    • I won’t be there – but i’ll send you a photoshop of me being there. 🙂

      • MonsterCheddar

        Always the problem solver….

  • Skittle

    When will be the winner announcement?… is that even an English sentence?

    • VampyreSquirrel

      It’s about 80% English.

      • Skittle

        When will the winner be announced?

        • Tomorrow afternoon.

        • VampyreSquirrel

          No idea… ask @OddSockZA:disqus

  • Deceased

    Sad panda is sad 🙁

  • has decided that Raynhardt Meyburgh is the winner. We’ll send you a mail shortly.

    • VampyreSquirrel

      Congrats @Kromaswow:disqus

    • VampyreSquirrel

      Why not announce it in a new article? I only just found this because I was wondering who won.

      I’ve let Raynhardt know to check his mail BTW.

    • Hiding my chance to shoot people …. Better watch out! 😛
