In October 2018, an intelligence officer disappeared while operating against militia forces in Europe. Sources indicated that the officer was still alive and was being used as a leverage in political negotiations. The location and status of our officer remained unknown.

Then, on 29JULY2020, a special missions unit raid recovered information suggesting the officer was being moved through our area of operations during a small window of time in October.  

Task Force 201 is established to discover the sites used to house the intelligence officer and execute a rescue.


CERTAIN APERTURE is a Blackline tactical and espionage simulation. It consists of a series of missions that culminate in a dramatic hostage rescue attempt at a never-before-used airsoft venue with several multi-story structures and 70 acres of woodland.

This is a realism-focused event. Participants will work as a team to gather information, identify the target, conduct reconnaissance, and raid the structures to rescue the hostage. Successes and failures will have real consequences on the ability of the team to complete the mission. 

There is only one chance to get it right.

To discover where the hostage is being held, teams must gather intelligence from a high value target. 

While one team maintains a close watch on the target, the other will enter a hotel room to plant covert audio and video surveillance devices and search for evidence.


Coordination and communication is key to ensure the operation is complete before the target returns.

New Venue - September 4, 2020 to September 6, 2020

The advance team is deployed to conduct reconnaissance of the target site. 

Teams must work to determine and gather the key intelligence required for the rescue operation. Guard schedules, geography, and radio traffic are all critical elements that will impact the planning. 

Over 36 hours, the reconnaissance team will get first eyes on the new venue and be the only source of information for the coming rescue operation.



PEC - October 17, 2020 to October 18, 2020
