Airsoft Perks Project


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I know the title is not very descriptive, but bear with me a few lines, and hopefully you'll want to get Perk'd! Also dont get spooked by the size of this post..

This is a project started by the romanian airsoft community. It's still in developement, doesn't yet have a "home"(website) of it's own, but resides in the main romanian airsoft forum.. and now here. Soon we hope we'll have a website, icons for the perks, all the works.


So ,what's this all about? Well, surely you've sat with a few friends after a hard day's play, sharing airsoft stories.. how you just happened to find the only muddy hole on the whole field and fall in it, show off your bruised arm where that burst caught you at close range, laugh at someone who was found snoring in the foxhole, and so on.. This is sort of the same, only for forum use. Every play Fallout? Whenever you did something "of importance" you got a Tag, Karma, which described the incident. Think of the boyscouts merit badges, do some stuff, get a badge. Only, this is more on the funny side, most of them reflect a funny situation on the airsoft field( and sometimes off field). We did it this way so people wouldn't feel compelled to cheat, or lie to get these. Their just meant for fun, and once you put them together, they tell a kind of tale of your airsoft experience.


Allright, let's get specific, what is a Perk? Well it's a tag you put in your signature whenever you feel that tag represents something you've been though on the field. Had a day when you went home and got into the shower and found a tick on your leg? Well now we have a perk for that: Tick Collecter. Ever accidently kill the hostages you were supposed to rescue? Expert negociator! Ever had a nasty injury, and kept playing even with blood flowing in your eyes? Die Hard! And so on.

If you like them, use them. This is a free project, no profit, just for fun. If you have ideeas for other perks, please let us know, if they're good they will get added to the list.


We only have a few small requests:

-Post a link in your signature to this post, or of the original thread over here: http://www.airsoftromania.com/forum/viewto...096&start=0 so people know where to find them

-Keep them grouped one after the other, not as a list, otherwise signatures become very long and hard to scroll through, irritating many forum users. You can use Bold/ underline/italic/ brackets to separate them, just look at my signature for a model of layout.

-We welcome suggestions for other perks, or even correction/additions/changes to current perks, but please undestand that if we think that it is not in the spirit of the Perks, we will not add them to the list. This encourages FUN, NOT COMPETITION!

-Don't put perks in your signature that you haven't "earned". This is Airsoft, it's based on honour, and so are these perks. In the end, it's only you who loses if you "cheat".

-Time is limited. I'll try to update as often as possible, but it may take time to get the changes through.


Ok, here we go, Enjoy!

this is why airsoft is SO much better than any video game.











makes me wonder just why i keep spending my money on games anyway...


im open to help with any designing of icons or web design. thats what i went to school for.

glad you guys like it. Regarding the pics, that's planned in the long run. There's also a way to implement this so it's easy on the forums as well, with a badge plugin for phpp, but it's still not sorted yet.


oh, and Fallenguard, since you;re the first person ever to claim the "last man standing" perk, you just have to tell us all about it :D

We've had some kind global move this to Off-Topic to be under my... "supervision". It is, undoubtedly, an awesome thread (hey, I've totted mine up already :D), but it's much more suited to OT than general :)


In any case, this is a brilliant idea. I just hope people don't end up grinding out these like people do for achievements on steam games/Xbox live... Though some of them could make for interesting stories!


Anywhoo, I feel like giving explanation for some of mine!


EDIT: Screw it, damned browser just lost all my editing <_<

It all seems hugely pointless, but then so does most things in off topic. :)


If folks want to start doing this, that's fine. Just please remember (as I can foresee this becoming the latest gimmick to replace toolbars) the forum limits on signatures; all images must not exceed a total of 400x100 pixels. :)


With that in mind, go crazy.

just to give an example of how these perks were claimed... and actually invented:



1. 1 of 300 - just when the 300 movie hit the theatres, we were locked down in a small factory, 17 against 70 :) Of course, just as the enemy was spreading out outside, getting ready to charge, I could not help myself but to shout to a good friend of mine "Jimmy, I hope you ate well today!". He actually didn't get it, and asked "Why, dude? :blink: ". At that point maybe 3 or 4 guys, including me, shouted spontaneously, but in almost-perfect sync "Because tonight, we dine in hell!" :P . One of the best airsoft moments I had, so far.


2. Got helmet but no brain - a friend was briefing new people on a CQB game site about all the possible dangers, especially the fact that not all the door frames had the same height. At the moment he finished that sentece, I came in (looking for my bbloader, with no connection to his briefing) banging my helmet LOUD in the same door frame he was using as an example. His next line, for the new players on that site was "Although we don't have a fully developed brain, we cover it up with helmets, just for situations like these"  :D


you guys don't wanna hear the Bloody BB story :)

Lol these are great. I am going to update my sig. I don't know about it getting stickied, but it is a fun idea.


EDIT: You should add a perk like mobile mortar. Story Behind: Don't know if I am the only person who has done this, but all my mags ran out, it was 1v3, and the OPFOR was advancing quickly. They knew where I was and I didn't know what to do as I had no time to reload. I suddenly ripped open my BB bag and started throwing BB's at them. I got one out, but got shot in the hand by a bolt action.

how are we supposed to use them if they are all part of one pic? but, i will make them all tomorrow during my portfolio development class. ill make them look cool with an undertone of comical so they dont look like they were drawn by a small mammal*cough*badger*cough*. i am a professional graphic designer...

true, they are more like achievements, but for some reason people like them called perks for some reason. WE've gone through some names earlier in the project, including achievements, merit badges, karma, and so on, and perks was the universal choice.


Thanks to the admins for allowing this, and sorry for the wrong section posting thingie..


regarding the images- i for one am a bit skeptical about using them in the signature as of now, without a description.. it might get confusing. If there's a way for the name/description to be included in the image, or at least pop up while you hover the mouse over an icon, that would be ideal. For all you guys who wanna chip in with images( and thanks btw), first thing we need are images for the main list, to be included in it. Something along the lines of the avatar size pictures, must be funny, and if possible, Fallout-like( tribute)


some examples of what they would ideally look like:

my idea was for you to put the pics next to their list item in the original or new post. now, being the fact that the images cant be big as some people already have 20 perks i am going to make them all 50 pixels high like badger said as around 30 of them can fit in the same line depending on the width.


calling them perks is pretty stupid though. i cant see how that happened.


EDIT: Below is an example of the Chameleon perk. i'm pretty sure this is how they will all fallow suit under my design. but i am showing it to see if there are any major disagreements.




Feel free to critique. if you guys like this design, i will continue to make them.

well, my ideea was to have a bigger image in the list,about the same size as the ones i posted above, and a smaller one, like the ones The Badger did, for the sig. In truth i was hoping to be able to use a few from fallout and some made up, but i'm not sure it's well.. legal. There are a few that are perfect. i'm not sure what the image size they are, but it's pretty good, not too big and not too small.

The smaller ones, well at least for our own forum, we're working on getting a forum mod running that allows for "medals' to be awarded, which shows in your signature( and keep the signature too). they would appear as little images, kinda like those from The Badger, and when you hover your mouse over, it displys the name, and if you click it, it takes you to it's description. That is the true "goal".


Regarding their name, keep in mind that English is NOT our main language. Second, they were inspired by Fallout 2 and it's Perk/ Karma system. We went through several names, Including awards, medals, ribbons, merit badges, perks and Karma. While Karma or Airsoft Karma is true to the model, people liked the name Perks, so it stuck. Thats about it.


Also, because i mentioned The Badger earlier, his icons really aren't half bad.. Although easily dismissed at first glance, if you look carefully and assign them to their proper Perk, they're pretty damn funny!( their in the list order, from left to right). I actually laughed at a few.. i know it's overdue, but thanks for the effort The Badger( i know you like to be reffered to by your full name).


Horsem4n, your input is appreciated as well. looking forward to seeing some of your work.

Have I been playing too long or is it a bit too easy to rack these up? Mind I do change my play style a lot.


Methinks more unusual stuff and cut out some of the more standard ones to keep people from having so many possibly?




Looking through mine I think there are a few that could easily be combined such as the "[Engineering and demolitions] [Combat engineer] [Destroyer of Worlds]" block along with maybe the carrying lots of stuff ones, owning lots of stuff ones etc.
