Shooters from across the country tested their talent in the match that featured 10 stages, and five side match stages. Specially developed reactive zombie targets kept everyone engaged and entertained. Participants shot from inside of a helicopter, beside a prison bus, behind a wrecked car, through a tunnel and from other challenging and unique stages.

The top shooters in each class were:

  • Open: 1st Jerry Miculek, 2nd James Darst, 3rd Kelly Neal
  • Tactical: 1st Adam Popplewell, 2nd Kurt Miller, 3rd Lena Miculek-Afentul
