Introduction: Airsoft Riflemen Advanced/sub-classes

Picture of Airsoft Riflemen Advanced/sub-classes

 Its me again, and I am going to tell you about a couple of advanced and sub-classes of the riflemen.

P.S. If you don't like this 'ible please DO NOT comment, unless its friendly improvment

P.S.S. Yes I do play MW2

Step 1: The Basics (Skip If You've Seen My Basic Class Guide)

Picture of The Basics (Skip If You've Seen My Basic Class Guide)

 If you havent seen my basic riflemen class guide dont worry here it is, 

Rifleman, the most common role of airsoft and the work horse of standard airsoft. It isn't uncommon to find entire squads of them, well with one person acting as the leader.

Weapons Type: Electric, some spring Kind of gun: Assault Rifles, Rifles, Big SMG's ae: UMP 45, P90

Optional Weapons: Grenades, Under barrel grenade launcher, red dot sight, and other attachments, Pistol (Recomended)
Clothing I judge clothing in three levels: Beginner, Into It, and
Pro Beginner: Darker street clothing Into It: Camo, a equitment belt with ammo pouch or thin to hold 2-3 low or mid cap clips or 1-2 High cap clips, and a holster for your not required but recommended pistol Pro: Every thin that "into it" has but time six, like face paint and stuff like that, helms and stuff thats close to the real deal

Step 2: Subclass: Grenadier

Picture of Subclass: Grenadier

In the basics I left a lot of the equipment optional for this class like grenades, grenade launchers, and stuff like that.

Weapons: Assault Rifle, Some kind of grenade x2-3  or under barrel grenade launcher, or grenade launcher. 

Clothing- See basic and something to hold your extra equipment 

Step 3: Advanced Riflemen

What separates this class from other riflemen is attachments, like scopes, heartbeat sensors, silencers/ supressors, and things like that. They are also geared toward toward 3 kinds of things:

Range- Accurate, and long range but not equal to that of a sniper usualy has scopes and possibly a tight-bore barrel.
Stealth- uses silencers or surpressors, it needs to be quiet. I havent seen many but on Redwolf airsoft I saw a heartbeat censor, that would be pretty macho. 
Grenadier- As I previously stated. ( See step 2)   

Step 4: Ranged Riflemen/ Accuacy

Range- Accurate, and medium range but not equal to that of a sniper usualy has optics like red dot and possibly a tight-bore barrel. Semi and Burst firing modes are good for this class. (Yes I do understand that tight bore barrels only ups the FPS) 

acknowledgements- Chopstx

Step 5: Stealth Riflemen

Picture of Stealth Riflemen

Stealth- uses silencers or surpressors, it needs to be quiet. I havent seen many but on Redwolf airsoft I saw a heartbeat censor, that would be pretty macho. Any firing mode is ok as long as it is some what quiet, I am going to make an 'ible on how to surpress a spring pistol.

Step 6: Ok, Till Next 'Ible

 If you have any Ideas I will sight you just speak up, thanks- Fedex202

P.S. Remember don't be a hater, if you have nothing nice to say don't say any thing.

airsoft suppressors dont suppress buuuutttttt there are some quieter aegs. g36's are somewhat quiet and so is the xm8

vulcan13 (author)mcguyver1232013-11-11

silencers do suppress the noise an aeg makes. However you have to have a properly shimmed gearbox, and you have to make sure youre motor is tight against the gearbox
only then will you see a difference in sound.also sometime you wont hear the difference that a silencer makes unless you are a good distance from it. a good way to test this is to have a friend hide behind 3 or 4 different pieces of cover have him fire the weapon and then try to geuss wich cover he is behind it is usually easyer to spot him when the silencer is off because the pitch is different.

Duke726 (author)2012-08-13

Tight bore barrels also add accuracy. There is a noticeable difference between tight bores and.. Well I dunno what you'd call the ones that aren't.

iperrin (author)2011-09-18

I have several issues with this. To start, they do not produce foam filled silencers as they are blatantly illegal in the U.S. You can take a hollow one and fill it with foam at your own discretion, but you won't be able to purchase one. On top of that, they won't do anything to silence your airsoft gun because in an AEG, most of the noise comes from the gearbox, and in a GBB/R, most of the noise is coming from the bolt cycling. There's no carbon fowling or air pressure great enough to make noise, coming out of the muzzle of an airsoft gun, so it's completely useless anyway.

The item you saw on Redwolf was not a heartbeat sensor, but a motion sensor based on the coordinates of other units used by people on the field. Not all COD items have a direct parallel in real life, and if you want to learn more about this stuff, there's a lot of resources out there on the net. You should try MIA - Michigan Airsoft - which is a forum where there is a plethora of information available. Spending some more time on the net might set some of the inaccuracies on this straight.

Duke726 (author)iperrin2012-03-19

What makes you think that other countries don't airsoft? America isn't the only place in the world to produce airsoft guns and accessories.

DaGepstaAirsoft (author)iperrin2012-03-13

You sir are right about everything. I have spent much time on forums, In fact MIA is my local forum as it turns out, I also spent time on Airsoft Society, and over the many last months I have realized the error of my ways. I quit Cod-Softing, I actually got out to play legitimate games. I realized what actually worked and what didn't. I also looked back into the Heart beat sensor, You were completely right. The Silencer, your right, but I have one thing to say relating to that, I have a Non-Blowback Co2 pistol I have been working with, on a silencer infact, though still in its infancy I have made it significantly quieter, I will probably make some way of showing it via this site, but no matter now. Thank you. So much you have evolved me from Cod-Softer to an informed member of the airsoft community.

Ummm.....i dont really remember giving any hints or advice on this page....Are you sure it was me?

DaGepstaAirsoft (author)chopstx2011-05-02

Yes it was you because you said to change it from me comparing it directly to a sniper instead change to a medium DMR like class.

chopstx (author)DaGepstaAirsoft2011-05-05

Oh yes now i do remember :)

mcguyver123 (author)2011-04-29

not hating, just get your facts straight and play airsoft more

mcguyver123 (author)2011-04-29

tightbore make the gun more accurate. im well enough ex. to know.

mcguyver123 (author)2011-04-29

advanced riflemen? about designated marksmen. an m16a4 is perfect and so is an m14...btw this guide is inaccurate out the wazzoo

DaGepstaAirsoft (author)2010-06-08

No there are some silencers/surpresors that actually silence airsoft guns, but other than those your right.

As far as I know, only Element made foam filled silencers, which I ordered and received yesterday. It does make a slightly noticeable difference while firing yourself. You have to be the target to notice the real difference.

notyou13 (author)DaGepstaAirsoft2010-10-26

how much was your f2000?

jakerox43 (author)2010-11-07

Almost eveything in this guide is either taken right out of Call OF Duty or made up. Someone has been playing more video games than airsoft. The fact that you call it "classes", you think an airsoft silencer will do anything for the sound, etc. Don't listen to this guide.

predatory meatball (author)2010-07-12

nooo, tight bores make it more accurate because its up to 8 mm TIGHTER than factory barrels!!! hence the name TIGHT BORE

I assume you mean 0.08mm as bb's are 6mm. A barrel over twice as wide as a bb would fart out bullets. Poommmfffffff!!

yea, sorry thats what i meant... and you wont believe how BIG of a difference an 0.08 mm bore can make. for snipers, Echo 1 actually makes tight bores all the way down to a 0.12 reduction. theyre INSANE, shooting dead on, and increasing FPS by 60-70 fps higher

L_Dawg (author)2010-07-03

Grenade launchers seem to be pretty useless since they just fire 120+ BBs out the end.

An Villain (author)L_Dawg2010-07-28


WarPig137 (author)2010-07-25

Just so you know... tight bores do not increase fps significantly on many guns. The largest increase I've heard of is 20 or 25 fps, and thats well above average.

xXxMattThePossumxXx (author)2010-07-19

other than the debunking done already by some comments, i must add that airsoft silencers dont silence the gun. Most of the noise is created by the gearbox in the body of the gun, silencers are used to cover barrel modifications and look macho, be really heavy, etc... for instance, I threw an m4 tightbarrel onto my Jing Gong g36c (no i'm not spouting off names, i really own one), m4 barrels are longer than g36c barrels, so i bought a fake silencer to cover it. You should get out and play sometime fedex, I love your enthusiasm, I still daydream about this stuff sometimes. But once you get out there and run around for a few hours with all that gear, i don't think you'll like the idea of classes that much, heck, the only thing i carry is a belt with 3 mag pouches on it

predatory meatball (author)2010-07-12

FN2000!!!!!!!!!! coolest rifle besides m4 carbine

Mattonater (author)2010-07-07

id like to ask you a question "have you ever been in a real aairsoft game." "do you realize that you olny named guns from mw2." "do you know how much that all would weigh."

JamesTB13 (author)2010-06-25

A heartbeat sensor? In REAL LIFE? I don't know, I've never heard of an actual one......

L_Dawg (author)JamesTB132010-07-03

There is but it doesn't actually sense heartbeats. It senses other sensors in the area. So if you want to know where your enemy is, they'll need to have one too.

JamesTB13 (author)L_Dawg2010-07-04

ooh. Good. I play MW2, and didn't think we were quite s advanced as sensing heartbeats yet. I'm glad to see you've researched, and not just said, 'well, they're in COD, they're probably real.' Good 'ible, by the way.

JamesTB13 (author)2010-06-25

Ok, I know this is really nit-picky, but, it's P.P.S. P.S means 'post-script'. So when you have more, it's 'post-post-script'. Anyway, good instructable!

ilpug (author)2010-06-15

the picture in step four is actually a sniper rifle. (yes, i saw your caption) it is one of the rarest sniper rifles in the world. and one of the most accurate smallbore rifles in the world. also in MW2... unrealisticly.

joshfedo (author)2010-06-07

silencer dont really help with sound you use them so you can have a longer inner barrel. All the noise you hear is coming right from the gearbox and motter

Mattonater (author)2010-06-06

plz try to take mw2 out of airsoft

chopstx (author)2010-05-24

I reccomend that step 4 be removed. It is so much like a sniper.

DaGepstaAirsoft (author)chopstx2010-05-26

 I change it so now it says "Medium range" instead of long, is that better? 

P.S. Sorry if t'hi's sounds pushy

chopstx (author)DaGepstaAirsoft2010-05-26

Ja, that sounds better.

DaGepstaAirsoft (author)2010-05-26

 P.S.S. sorry about my last comments bad spelling.
