I always saw it as Paintball with more tactics, realism, the chances to use your own grenades and not have to run around in a jumpsuit covered in bright splotches of paint, personally.

I always looked at it as paintball for pussies.


Not necessarily, I have seen airsoft guns that leave fairly large bruises.

I really fail to see how airsoft involves more tactics, unless the only paintball you've experienced is speedball.

Well the places I usd to play at (Airsoft) were bordering on Mil-sim games, so tactis were prominent to say the least, and that's how I always played it afterwards. I suppose it's down to each player how tactically they play the game, those who didn't usually didn't last long where we went.

I think this is just going to spiral downwards into a 'My opinion vs. Your opinion' thread.

It's serious business enough that some police forces use it to practice breaching. My problem with it is that because of the way most of the guns are designed, rather than simulating firearm combat it's more like fighting with a long range water gun: just spray a stream of bb's in the general direction of your target.

Also, it's not for pussies:

i have been playing for years. i like it more than paintball. alot of softair guns are fairly acurate. more so than your average paintball gun. some people use autos and just spray the bbs. i prefer a more sniper type approach. 99% of the time if i can see you and your in range ill get ya in one shot. where as with paintball you usually need the first shot to get an idea of where the ball is going and where to aim the next, meanwhile you just gave away your position and the target is now moving.

i have played both, but i just like paintbll more. i dont get into the whole tactics thing. just airsoft is harder to know if you actually hit someone and it pisses me off when people dont go out. nothing says your out like a fresh splash of paint.
#11
I prefer paintball because then you cant have some fag say "YOU DIDNT GET ME"

And plus Airsoft hurts more, I think
#12
I like both. Paintball is more "people friendly", and easier to get into, but Airsoft is more serious and alot more realistic.

paintball hurts more cos the paintballs are bigger thn bbs!! and airsoft is a rocking game to play!!! a reall good laugh with mates or you can join a team and it gets more intense! i recomend everyone tries it
#14
you can buy paint bbs for airsoft. but i noticed with a better gun that fires a higher fps that the paint markers will break in the barrel. i usually aim for skin anyways. when you yell like you just got stung by a bee in a battle field there is no denying you got hit lol.

you cant have as much fun with airsoft as you can with paintball.. airsoft is too wannabe-military IMO

Airsoft BB's can go a LOT faster than paintballs; paintballs will break if shot too fast but there's nothing stopping you from shooting an airsoft bb at well over 500fps (except for rules+regs if you are playing at a real arena).

most paintball games I play nowadays are all millitary simulation to a large degree. I'm not denying that airsoft can get tactical or whatever, just saying that paintball is no less tactical.

They're basically the same thing, but it really depends on who you play with. If you play with a bunch of Immature people, it's basically a frenzy, but if you've got tatical people, you gotta get tactical...understand?

How is that more tactical than paintball though? Mil-sim happens all the time in paintball. Oklahoma D-day for one is a simulation of D-day and its the biggest game in the world.

edit you can also use grenades in paintball, I have no idea where your coming from with this.

Well, you have to think about the range of Airsoft weapons. They have shotguns/grenades, but as far as I know, paintball doesn't. If it does, please get some purchase links...WANT

I have no argument anymore. The paint mines look awesome...where would I go about getting them?

The reason I love Airsoft is because the settings are much more versatile.. like in my town, our neighbors allow us to use the whole block to play.. that gives us houses, pools, cars, roofs, anything you can imagine to hide in/under/around.. it's really fun.. we usually will play from like 9:00pm to 1:30am or so.. it's great fun !!

Played paintball for a year, found airsoft, never looked back.

For me, it's so much better. The guns are a big factor, e.g. paintball: Looks like a tube with a thing on the top and back, cannot have hop up so has to fire faster (and thus hurt more and do more damage) to get the same range, ammo much more expensive, no sights, no full auto etc

Airsoft: Looks like the real deal, hop up gives far more range without having to pump up the round speed, cheaper ammo, sights, full auto, semi if you like, batteries mean no need to carry the big CO2 tank as well as far less affected by the temperature, smaller rounds allow for ammo to be contained in realistic magazine rather than a glorified ice cream tub.

I could go on and on. It's a yay from me that's for sure.
