Every day, there is two or three events where the competitors show their ability to perform different types of combat missions which requires a high level of physical fitness and the use of individual weapons such as assault rifle, sniper rifle and automatic pistol with a high level of accuracy.

The Annual Warrior Competition is designed to build team spirit among contestants partnered against terrorism. The competition also facilitates sharing of best-practices, technology, and hardware; through gear and weapons display and live demonstrations by international retailers.
