"Twisted Yet Predictable Return of Colonel Mustard" Event

As part of the Gunslingers 6 Year Anniversary Celebration, we are hosting a Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 event entitled, "The Twisted Yet Predictable Return of Colonel Mustard!"

To appreciate the legacy of our take of Colonel Mustard, here is the original description and "back story" post back in August, 2010:

"There is no better way to enjoy the final month of the summer season than a day out at the pool. Imagine it. Kicking off those flip-flops as you flop yourself onto a poolside lounger. Sipping tropical mix drinks from a coconut husk and watching the beautiful locals play water volleyball. Aw, that is the life.

That is your delusion, soldier. Wake up. Your reality is that your helicopter convoy crashed in the ruins of a demolished city. You and your fellow surviving troop are stranded. Alone. No one is coming back for you. Hell. Even the cockroaches have abandoned you.

Perhaps it is the reality of that abandonment that has lead to your present dilemma. Maybe it is fall-out radiation rotting the brains of you and your comrades. Whatever the reason, all of you have grown accustomed to gathering around the empty tiled pool and listening the commands of your tale's version of a severed pig's head. I mean, of course, the ghost of Colonel Mustard. Is he just a figment of your sick imagination? Probably. But as you sit there listening to him tell you that the only inroad to survival is to knife-fight your friends to freedom, it all seems so real and logical.

The ghost of Colonel Mustard brings you The Gunslinger Pool Party!


Welcome to the sequel, and doesn't all proper sequels involve a cruise ship? Well, this one does. You and your surviving comrades decide to transform the typically somber anniversary of the Colonel Mustard nightmare into one of positivity and moving on by booking yourselves on board of an exotic cruise ship. You don't need therapy! There is nothing that eating good food, enjoying enchanting scenery, and flirting with sunbathing tourists can't fix. Right?

Whether it is the actual reemergence of the sadistic phantom of Colonel Mustard or the very juxtaposition of your suppressed memories against the lively nightlife, you and your fellow soldiers are convinced that the cruise ship is sinking and the only way to save it is to make a deal with said demon. Take knives from the luxury restaurant kitchen and fight to the death. The last soldier standing will captain the ship to safety. Redemption will be had!

Here is how the event works:
Starting Date/Time: Saturday, June 15th at 6pm Pacific (8pm Central; 9pm Eastern).
Duration: Possibly three weeks, every Saturday, same time, depending on sign-ups.
Platforms: Wii U, Xbox360, PS3
Map/Location: Hijacked; the pool on the "wine deck."
Weapon Set: Normal knives only. No perks.
Set-Up: In a bracket system, all participants are paired off and take turns knife fighting in the pool. The winner of 2 out of 3 round advances. The last person standing after everyone else has been eliminated is the champion.
Prize: GS Forum title of "2013 Black Ops 2" champion.


The hosts of the private rooms will be posted the night before the event. Reply to this topic specifying which platform you are going to attend on to sign up!

Here is video reference to one of the rounds of the original 2010 event:


Have fun! :twisted:

Feels like I haven't played COD on the U in forever! So, if my hand is up for it, I'll be there. This would be a good time to start using the Wiimote too and getting used to it :D

You could almost do this on BF3 as well. Gulf of Oman has a pool.
