Picture of Camo Sniper bunker/foxhole
use this for airsoft or paintball. Maybe if your hunting rabbit with an airgun. (the picture is an example of what it should look like. I will post some of my foxhole bunkers but they look just like this)

Step 1: First step: finding the right spot

Picture of First step: finding the right spot
Your going to need a hill or semi raised ground.Make sure the spot has plenty of trees and or thick brush. It just helps with camoflauge.

We build fighting holes for more then just snipers. We put defenders and riflemen in them. We've also dug them randomly, so in the middle of a battle, any unit can get in one.

Thats a fighting hole... One that you get in and wait... A fox hole is a hasty defensive position where you just take a layer of dirt off of the ground and lay down so you are concealed but hardly covered...

Don't be so sure. I was listening to a WWII vetren who explaine normal foxholes in the pacific campaign were 9 ft deep, 12 ft wide, and 12 ft long. Troops were suposed to sleep in them.

I was talking about the differences between a fox hole and a fighting hole. Many people use the two interchangably, although they are two different things. Fighting holes are what you stay up watching while your buddy sleeps and is more long term.

Thank you for making this. My airsoft war is trench warfare, the bases up to a mile apart. This'll be helpful.
I made one of these in the forest behind my house and it is awesome!

im buying a air gun 400 fps powerful enogh to kill birds?
No, but at point blank it can make people bleed.
I have killed birds with a 300fps gun, but it only really hurts smaller birds with a headshot.
400 should be enough, i hunt with mine. Rabbit and bird mostly. The ocaisional raccoon. mine's 495 FPS.
it depends, what kind of ammo?

Nice instructable i was thinking of following your idea but then a different idea popped in my head, kinda like your fort

Wow, having a bunker/foxhole setup for a round of paintball would be awesome. It would take a closed private area to build it, but there are some great sniper paintball guns that could be used in this setup. Thanks for showing the tapered design used in the interior of the foxhole, this seems easier to dig and construct.

Perhaps the worst mistake you could ever do is put your sniper rifle OUTSIDE of cover. That's why you never see assasins with their sniper rifle out the window...
 where the hell do you live where there would be ANY assassins??
Hey some of my best mates are assassins, his rifles havent even seen the day light, we have assassin parties, with chips and what not.
so that was your place? nice.
i liked the look of that beandip you had, any chance of getting the recipe?
You too?
nice job. very nice job. i like it.
what kind of camo is the last picture? it looks like Mossy Oak

Very well done. I really enjoyed the diagram in step 3. I plan on installing at least on of these for general purpose, be it airsoft or just a good hiding spot. The one thing it's missing is an emergency out. Military snipers are required when building these to have an easy way out in the back for after the shot, but oh well. It's still awsome you thought to post this.

one thing you didnt mention is what to do with the soil, that in is self is a dead give away that there is some one dug in there. this will also only work along as no1 else knows where it is, if you play in the same area every time, people will know where it is and all you digging will be wasted as some one sneaks up behind you and lobs a paint grenade in!

nice idea ,
but you only got 180' field of view MAX leaving you three flanks open ,worst off all
if you were out flanket from behind you have no hope ,if you had to retreat you
would give your self up to full view on exiting ,
your wepon is a DEAD give away as well ,
also if your going to snipe you dont want to be in the same postion for more
than 2 shots , this would work as forward postion(with a bit more fortification )
or for ambush , honestly recon is the only use i would consider even then the best way to hide some thing is in plane view and any well trained spotter would have you real quick ,any how if first you dont suceed well in combat you die

Just add a roof to that and you have a small base to store guns and ammo.

WOW bit pointless?
#9EJV XWXAXDXEX5 years ago
hahahaha i know just  tryn to b funny and it is to deep dude its twice as deep as tht shovel
XWXAXDXEX #9EJV5 years ago
oh kl it is but the deeper means more cover, bo\ut can at times be a niusance, it also could be the angle of pic or shovel length.
my friend made one of these and it was really hard to get into because you had to crawl into it from the front
