Step 1: Getting Started
Step 2: General Rules
1. NO BLIND FIRING (hate it when people do that)
2. You must have eye protection on at all times when in the battle or around it. (Different places have different policies but that is the rule I always go by)
3. NO point blank range firing( If you do happen to get THAT close to someone, say surrender and if they don't say ok or alright and leave the feild, waste 'em) Another rule I play by is if you get close enough to touch someone with your gun, it counts as a knife kill and their out.
4. NO PISTOL WHIPPING That is just illegal at all feilds because it hurts, badly.
5. Have fun.
Step 3: Getting a Gun
-A good tip, sent to me by feck111, is to clean the gun regularly or after every time you shoot it with a good lubricant such as silicone spray. Thanks feck111.
...NOT MY AIRSOFT GUN JUST A PICTURE OF SOMEONE ELSES... (mine is the same model though i just don't have it with me right now)
Step 4: Fields
A) run home and get another, weaker gun or
B) use someone elses side arm
Most fields will follow the same rules I just posted so most of the rules shouldn't be any knew to you. Most fields won't allow the use of airsoft smoke bombs but it can never hurt to ask. I know that most fields will aloow airsoft grenades though. Any kind of flash bang grenade is not allowed anywhere ecxept at backyard airsoft wars with your friends for three reasons:
A) if you suffer from some specail deseises the flash might kill you
B) the judes or martials can't see whose out or not.
C) people will be running in to each other and the teams will get all mixed up.
The first picture is of an indoor field, the second is outside.
Step 5: Other Tips
Step 6: How Not to Be a N00b...
Step One: Don't Cheat
This is one of those things that I hate when I play airsoft...Cheaters. If you cheat it just makes the game less fun. I know from experianced play with cheaters. If you cheat and you think that you're god or something at airsoft...YOUR A NOOB!!!
Step Two: Don't Cuss At The Other Team
This is overall unsportsmanlike and can get you out of an organized event quicker than you can say: "organized event". Just don't do it.
Step Three: Don't Camp
Camping is when you sit there and you wait for someone to walk by. Go to youtube.com right now and type in 'Airsoft'. What you will get is a bunch of grown men sitting there shooting other grown men in camo. That my friends, is GAY. I don't care what you have to say, it's GAY.
Step Four: Don't Act All Serious
A few simple words for you: Don't act like this is so serious and anybody that jokes around about it should just leave. Thats messed up. It's something called fun...Let's spell it out F...U...N...FUN. It's not fun when you have to sit there and take everything seriously. Sure the game's objective is to be the last team standing...but honestly, is it that important to you? If it is...you shouldn't be playing the game.
Step Five: Don't Judge a Player by His Gun
This is the last step in your road to de-noobing your airsofting. If someone shows up at your game and has a 10.00 dollar springer, don't even think about saying something about it. Sometimes, the next thing you know...He's whoppin' your a**. That would be funny to watch some kid buy a $200.00 dollar gun and then laugh at the dude with the $20.00 dollar pistol then, the next thing you know, he's whoopin' a**. That's all i've got to say on that subject...just don't do it.
Thank you for reading my new step on how NOT to be a noob. Thank you.
