Tamworth has become the latest battle ground in the war against drugs, as the DEA and the Medellin Cartel prepare to clash at Kootingal.
Next weekend a helicopter full of narcotics will crash near Kootingal, setting the scene for all out warfare as a 70 strong team of cartel members take on an army of DEA agents to secure the site, and the product.
Tamworth Paintball and Laser Tag owner Glen Lye and his team have put months of work into setting the scene, and believe this two-day event will be "the biggest game in NSW."
"We have teams coming from Sydney, Brisbane, the Central Coast, Condobolin and all over," he said.
"There should be a really good mix of players, skill levels and ages for a really great weekend out, and something a bit different we have been wanting to try."
Over the past few years Mr Lye has built an impressive 800m by 200m battle ground, with multiple different stages and props including three real planes, a helicopter and a maze, based on the Pacman game constructed with 1000 tonnes of sand.
There is also underground bunkers, army barracks with 16 buildings, jeeps, shipping containers, dirt mounds, barrels, power reels and shields.
The event will also see another first of its kind, with two games being played on Saturday, before a night game held under lights, and a full moon - well at least sometimes.
"A lot of people are excited about the night game because it hasn't really been done before," Mr Lye said.
Tickets start at $150, and include dinner, breakfast, 1000 paintballs and a camping spot. Bookings via the website or Facebook.
