The event included a category for VFS 4-way, as SDC Core was looking for an opportunity to compete and be judged under pressure. There was no direct competition for the former Dubai Nexus members Jason Russell and Stephanie Strange, now with Dusty Hanks, Ryan Risberg and Jake Jensen in the new lineup.
The team's goal is to win the USPA Nationals 2015 and compete for the USA at the World Meet 2016 on their home turf at Skydive Chicago.
Niklas Daniel is running the AXIS Flight School, based at Skydive Arizona in Eloy, and he said that there is even more competition: "AXIS Flight School now has a competition division called X-Force."
The team's lineup consists of Brianne Thompson, Johnny Gunn, Niklas Daniel, Seth Studer and Kevin Mitchell. Niklas Daniel handed over the camera equipment more than two years ago and has performed in front of the camera for Arizona Arsenal ever since. Brandon Atwood was filming Arsenal, and Kevin Mitchell is now team videographer for X-Force. Niklas Daniel said that his own team has "set the sights on the podium at the 2015 USPA National Championships".

X-Force member Brianne Thompson was a member of the US national teams in 4-way Women for several years before she turned to VFS 4-way competition in 2013. She won a silver medal with Fastrax Blue in Maubeuge 2008 and a bronze medal with Spaceland Blue in Menzelinsk 2010.
Niklas Daniel was filming both teams at that time. Now they have joined forces in the active lineup in VFS 4-way.
