Airsoft Grenade





Introduction: Airsoft Grenade

In this instructable you will learn how to make an airsoft grenade. i do not want to be held responsible for any damage that is caused to person or property!!!!!!

Step 1: Gather Materials

Things you'll Need:

Sealable plastic sandwich bag
Baking soda
Paper towel

Step 2: Add BBs

Put around 20-30 bbs in the bag.

Step 3: Add the Vinegar

Pour a quarter cup of vinegar into the plastic bag. A few ounces is fine, but for the airsoft grenade to work, it really doesn't have to be scientific.
The bigger the bag the more u need!

Step 4: Make the Secret Weapon

Spoon a couple teaspoons of baking soda on to your paper towel.

Step 5: Almost Done!

Pinch the plastic bag with one hand so that the vinegar stays trapped in the bottom and the bag is still open at the top.

Step 6: Put the Money in the Bag

Place the paper towel with the baking soda folded inside into the opening of the bag. Be sure not to let the paper towel touch the vinegar.

Step 7: Seal It

Seal the plastic bag. Remember to keep the baking soda and vinegar separate!

Step 8: Game Time!

Shake vigorously and fire away. You are now ready to fire your airsoft grenade. Shake the plastic bag for a few seconds until the vinegar is saturating the paper towel. Launch it at your opponent and watch it explode. (The pressure building in the plastic bag from the mix of vinegar and baking soda will eventually cause the bag to pop.)

It really helps a lot when trying to follow directions so you should consider taking some photographs. Once you do that and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work. Thanks! Thanks for the cool instructable and we hope to publish this soon!

    Dude!!!!!!!!!!!!! Try someting different. Dont use vinegar and baking soda. That dumb!

    Wow i never saw that before!!!!! JK This sucks make something that explodes!!!!

    these are the most innefective airsoft grenades ever. if someone thew one at me, i would go up to them, shoot them, and tell them that they have no brain. seriously, these are completely innefective for airsoft. maybe fun for little kids,

    this was only gd as a shock grenade, when i made it, it was pretty loud, i still put bbs in there just incase, plus i put magnets on it, shake it up, and becuz it doesnt always elplode, i shoot it from a distance, one shot, 2-4 kills

    i made one of these by my own ramped up lightweight design that i will be posting up soon. I used a smaller bag and doubled what you put in and used steel bbs for extra distance. mine went POP really loud and the bbs went around 10ft. from the blast zone. i know your all thinking "wouldnt those hurt?" but its only enough to feel them not get hurt by them. im experimenting with tripwires and such things so stay tuned.

    you do realize that if you use only a ppr towel to separate the ingredients, you'll have to use it as soon as you make it right?REPLY

    i know that this was created to make an alternative to all of those dangerous accident waiting to happen pyro grenades out there. this however, is pretty weak and impractical. if you really want this to work, follow the directins the same, but use a plastic bottle instead... better.REPLY

    How exactly is this going to build up enough pressure to fire the BBs?REPLY

    EXACTLY WHAT IM THINKING!! This thing probobly wont work im my opinion... not to be a jackass... to get the bbs going fast enough would take alot more.REPLY

    Agreed. This is an ineffective way to make a grenade. If you do devise an effective non-explosive airsoft grenade, let me know because it'd be cool. REPLY

    1Apr 18, 2009. 6:23 PMKalShii says:
    i found using a paperclip "pin" is great, it works better than a rubberband for keeping the baking S. and vinegar seperate. When ready to throw, you bend the "pin" in 1 or 2 spots and slip it off the bag. Bingo! REPLY

    does it hurt?REPLY
    Mar 11, 2009. 1:56 PMjmanjman says:
    maybe rubber band it really tight and make sure they vstay seperated. the pull the rubberband like a pin and chuck it!

    1Aug 7, 2008. 3:53 PMCapnTac says:
    This is really good, but I wouldn't want to run around in a woodland area holding this!REPLY

    13Aug 7, 2008. 4:29 PMRye2121 (author) says:
    thats why you carry it around twisted shut and maybe even rubberbanded. Then when you are ready un twist it and shake like heck!REPLY

    2Aug 29, 2008. 12:12 AMstasys says:
    what if it turns upside down? the vinegar would touch the soda and BINGO!!! An unplanned explosion, and a quick end to the game.REPLY

    carry it instead of putting it in your pack.

    everyone is such a critic....
