TIERS OF THE SUCK
Each faction at Crabistan provides a different experience with various levels of seriousness and comfort. For example, mil-sim enthusiasts can sign up for a military faction to experience military-style camping, challenging missions, and a chain of command. Players looking for something else can sign up for civilian factions, which offer a wide variety of experiences as well as a traditional camping experience. As a civilian, players are free to seek out their own action as mercenaries, traders, couriers, smugglers, bounty hunters and any other venture they can find or create themselves. Be sure to find the tier of suck that’s right for you.
SPIRIT OF CRABISTAN
We wanted Crabistan to be a social, accessible, and immersive Airsoft experience. Here, players create their own emergent adventures through the roles they choose to play. When you are in Crabistan you are in “character” for the experience and we encourage you to get creative and develop fun and unique personas as part of the game world. This is a long form game, so some downtime is to be expected in between the action. Take the opportunity to enjoy camping, explore the field, and meet other players!

CRABISTANI CIVILIAN - faction
CRABISTANI NATIONAL ARMY - military faction
CRABRAKI CIVILIANS - faction
SOVIET MILITARY ADVISORS - military faction
Soviet Military Advisors have been sent to support the young nation of Crabrak following its secession from Crabistan. This military faction helps defend Crabraki borders and has objectives to support Crabrak as it seeks to solidify its sovereignty and defenses. The Soviets conduct their missions from a forward operating base in the Crabraki region.
TIMELINE and SETTING
Crabistan takes place in an alternate 1990s timeline where the Soviet Union didn’t collapse and the conflicts of the Cold War rage on. Following a series of national disasters, Crabistan suffered greatly. The nearby Soviet Union sent in troops to assist the country and to assert its influence over the nation’s valuable resource - Crabtonium.
The Soviet occupation forces were thwarted in most of their attempts to establish their influence across the region by US Green Berets sent secretly into the country. Increased tension caused by this conflict sparked internal rivalries and brought the Crabistan to the brink of a civil war. Due to a timely intervention by the United Nations, a peaceful path forward was found through a secession vote and thus the new country of Crabrak was born. US intervention was also revealed due to the US Green Berets frequent exposure and flaunting of international laws. All of these events were player driven.
Following the player-driven secession crisis, the new state of Crabrak and its neighbor Crabistan have been locked in a bitter territorial dispute. Having most of the land and resources, Crabistan redeveloped into a thriving economy. One thing that has boosted this development is that Crabistan is a known growzone for the illicit drug known as “muck beans”. Crabrak on the other hand, though small, contains the region's largest airport along with most of its Crabtonium reserves. Knowing this, the Soviet Union made a deal with Crabrak to help protect and develop the nation in exchange for that Crabtonium. With US Forces politically unable to send any form of troops into the region again, and with the Soviets backing the Crabrak government, Crabistan now relies on the newly formed Crabistani National Army to defend itself and dispute Crabraki borders.
