Introduction: Cheap and Easy Airsoft Grenades

Picture of Cheap and Easy Airsoft Grenades

This instructable will show you how to make an airsoft grenade without using explosives or chemicals. All you need is one easter-egg, and some airsoft bbs.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

The materials list for this grenade is very short:

1. ONE (1) easter egg that splits open virticaly
2. TWENTY (20) airsoft bbs
3. ONE (1) rubberband (optional)

Step 2: Building the Grenade

Picture of Building the Grenade

This is where you will build the grenade. Take all of the 20 or so bbs and put them in the grenade. Then, close the two parts together and put the rubberband around it. Thats it, your done!

Step 3: Uses

The uses of this grenade are mainly to do base raids and clear large areas of enemy's. It works best on any hard surface as long as you TAKE THE RUBBERBAND OFF FIRST!!! The rubberband is only so it doesn't fall apart in your vest. Take that off BEFORE throwing. If you wanted you could also fill it up with water for other uses like getting a bigger diameter of bbs all around, or splashing the enemy before they get showered in bbs.

Im curious how far do the bbs go like 2 feet

cjeffries (author)2011-05-30

Guys heres a good one. you will need:

1 or more emPty UNLABELED Rx medicine bottle.

airsoft bbs


something to make a hole in the Rx bottle the size of the firercracker

lighter, or matches

First, make the hole in the bottom of the Rx bottle.

Second, put the firecracker all the way in, with nothing but the fuse exposed.

Third, fill the Rx bottle with BBs. (all the way to the top)

Fourth, close the bottle, light the fuse, and throw at target. The BBs shuld scatter in all directions, exploding the bottle to peices.\

yeah and what the frags that fly off the bottle and you only get one use

tonyblitz1 (author)cjeffries2013-09-16

the only issue I have with all these firecracker grenade recipes is that our local airsoft guys don't allow the use of propellent in airsoft. Though if you could point me to any other non explosive options I'd be grateful.

And you could get charged with attempted homicide... What I suggest is Nitrogen Triiodide, if you can make enough and keep it stable during transport.

Airsoft is a fun and exhilarating sport that uses gun replicas for near-realistic police and military strategy games. While the game is played differently depending on what types of objectives are given, every Airsoft game relies on being as realistic as possible. Most people even use the same strategies and techniques used by modern police officers and soldiers when playing a round of airsoft.

kkennedy5 (author)yobwoc2011-07-10

Asbestos is a type of mineral that can give you cancer and other serious diseases.

DAxXxBOMB (author)2011-04-19

1: More BB 2: Add Firecracker with five second fuse 3: EMPHASIS ON SUGGESTION 2!!!!!

monkeynuts (author)2011-03-19

nice idea blah!

xak7 (author)2011-03-12

This is just my opinion but firstly to get this to acualy be effective you have to throw this very hard at a hard surface. Since I usualy play airsoft there is mostly dirt and grass to get this to work I have to be less than 20 feet away. Second, even if it does work the bbs don't move fast enough for you to feel them hit you (unless you are like 10 ft away). And you really can't even use these for when you would want a grenade, like to throw it over a wall. But I have to admit these are pretty fun just to throw, they just arent very useful.

It won't come open when I throw it

alexw2150 (author)Air_Assassin2011-02-21

You need to take the rubber band of before throwing; it's like the pin on a real grenade.

Air_Assassin (author)alexw21502011-02-21

No I mean when I snap it shut then throw it won't open onless the egg breaks

alexw2150 (author)Air_Assassin2011-02-27

By "egg breaks" do you mean crack apart or open normally?

Air_Assassin (author)alexw21502011-02-27

cracks apart

alexw2150 (author)Air_Assassin2011-02-28

Then the size of the ring which goes into the other side of the egg is to big, so you could solve this by sanding down the outside of the ring, or (the messy approach) covering the ring in butter or soap. Both of these might work, or both might not but you'll only find out by trying!

add way more bbs

kve23 (author)2011-02-07

if you use a horizontally splitting egg with the rubberband very tight on the seam. it works very well.make sure you fill the entire egg

dark phoenix (author)2011-02-06

i don't think this would be effective as the real air soft grenades.

callkills (author)2009-12-18

what the fps?

KNEXFRANTIC (author)callkills2010-03-07

fps is feet per seconde

callkills (author)KNEXFRANTIC2010-04-07

 your not that smart

iBurn (author)callkills2010-06-25

You're asking for the speed of 20 projectiles going in different directions. Not to mention the fact that nobody would bother trying to chrono one of these.

ToddisI (author)iBurn2011-01-20

lol, that would take a while to get
