AOJ Exclusive Game Modes

Updated: Aug 31, 2023

When we charter a field, having the usual counter games and flag games gets boring.

That is why our games have a unique twist. We like to make our games entertaining, fun, interesting, challenging and cater to military style by incorporating real military aspects into them.

Many of the following games have been used in military selections, war-game skirmishes and special forces training, which have been adapted by our own special forces veteran team member to be used by Airsoft Online Japan as exclusive game modes you wont find anywhere else, unless it has been copied.


The following games have been designed based on a miminim number of players and diverse game modes.

While these were used in special forces training operations, they have been tweaked to be more fun and with airsoft in mind.

We welcome any feedback you might have, and ask that any others using these game modes, give credit where it is due.

The prisoner can be given a handgun.

The prisoner cannot run and can only move when being escorted.

(example: another player's hand on their shoulder)

Once the prisoner has a weapon, they can be killed.

(dropping or returning the weapon does not change anything)

Winning Criteria: The prisoner safely arrives at extraction zone with all team members.

The prisoner remains in custody or killed (only while armed).


One person from the Rescue Team is the prisoner, their wrists are bound together and they are unarmed. The kidnappers can move the prisoner to different locations and command them, to confuse the Rescue Team.

When the Rescue Team rescues the prisoner (by touching their shoulder), they must escort the prisoner to the designated extraction zone (of which The Kidnappers do not know). The prisoner can be given a handgun (not essential), but this will end the unkillable status, meaning one hit and they are dead.

Once the prisoner has arrived at the safety zone, all Rescue Team members must return for extraction. When the last team member arrives, a 30 second countdown will begin to secure the prisoner. After 30 seconds, as long as one Rescue Team member is within proximity of the extraction zone and prisoner, the Rescue Team wins.

The Disposal Team must go to retrieve the code/wire cutting method from the enemy leader.

The Terrorists will try to guard the puzzle clue areas to hinder progress.

Bomb Defusal Answer Methods

  • Solving a riddle to find the sequence

  • Searching for keys/codes/instructions on "dead" / captured enemy team leaders

  • Gathering equipment for wire cutting / code fragments.

  • Taking the code/method from enemy leader.

  • Escorting the Bomb Disposal Specialist to the bomb and keeping them safe while they defuse it.

Bomb Defusal Options

  • Passcode

  • Removing/cutting wires

  • Rewiring

  • Synchronised key turning

Note: The bombs used are a handmade design used in warfare with the special forces. They have been modified for various game modes, but essentially use the same parts and core design, just with more options for defusing and a less dangerous finale. If there is enough interest, our team leader may make a limited number of them available for purchase by individuals or even airsoft fields.
