Introduction: Guide to Airsoft

Picture of Guide to Airsoft

In this guide i'll give a general discription of different tactics and types of equipment, encluding wich gun you should choose for your main weapon and side arm.

Step 1: Choosing a Weapon

Picture of Choosing a Weapon

First things first, your weapon. Primary or side arm, they are both important. Primary: Pick a gun that you like and is decent/reliable. Imagine being on the battle field and having your gun jam, it would really suck. side arm/secondary: It is equally important to have a secondary weapon. Bringing up the jamming theory again ( it's going to happen one time or another ) you could immediately pull out a pistol while running to cover. in this case as well you should pick a decent gun. Other than that it's really just up to personal choice, different people like different guns.

Step 2: Gear

Now it's time to play dress up. Most people use camo so it is harder to be seen. In this case you should probably use ghilie attributed to where you are having the match. But some people use clothing to intimidate people. Imagine if someone came at you in full black or terrerist looking. It could be pretty freaky.

Step 3: Types of Gameplay

Be creative, mix airsoft with things like capture the flag or different scenarios from your favorite first person shooters like Call of Duty or Team Fortress 2. And remember, it's just a game if you take it so seriously anyone who makes a joke is off your team,you should be the one getting kicked out.

Step 4: Have Some Fun!

 is that gun in the pic a p90 i cant tell cuz its got so much stuff on it

That couldn't be a p90 it has a back loading clip and the p90 has a top loading clip but your right it does look like a p90 it might be a f2000

actually, this isnt a p90 or an fn2000. its actualy a FAMAS g2, judging by the stock, the mag and the carry handle.

its actually a FN F2000, a p90 magazine fits into a spot on top of the gun just below the main sight rail, not in the stock, though i could see where you would think its a p90

JamesTB13 (author)mr. cool 3842010-06-25

yep, it's a P90, with a solid stock, huge mag (for it, anyway) and a carrying handle. which is weird cause that thing weighs, what, 10 lbs?

mr. cool 384 (author)JamesTB132010-07-14

nancy men cant buy a sling jk mabey the carrying hanndel is for the far supperrior iron sights on the g36 serries

JamesTB13 (author)mr. cool 3842010-07-15

Maybe,....but really, a P90!? It's small, but also kinda stupid looking, don't you think?

mr. cool 384 (author)JamesTB132010-08-05

yes it reminds me of a pig

JamesTB13 (author)mr. cool 3842010-08-06

At least pigs are useful.

mr. cool 384 (author)JamesTB132010-08-28

yep and pigs cant jam when u shoot them

Yes, I think so. I got all of these pictures by searching airsoft pics. I still need to update with some of my own guns.

to me it looks a tad like the assault rifle in halo and is that a G36 caring handle I spy on top

zasxcd (author)2010-06-09

me and my friends use our mask as intimidation. we all have diffrent masks, some redone ourselves and some we bought it the way it is. i bought the red scar mask on evike :D

Someone needs to make Sam Fisher's SC-20K with all the attachments. that would totally be worth however much it cost.

bounty1012 (author)lickpoison2010-04-12

The closest you could probably get is an FN-2000.

CapnTac (author)lickpoison2009-12-22

JLS made the FN 2000, you could probbly make some attachments on your own.

GianniMora (author)2010-01-19

 why r the pics so small

saxman31 (author)2009-09-29

hers a tip what he is saying is completely true. but if you want to get a good gun that seldom jams and will last buy a classic army gun. i am experienced in this

canis_lupus (author)saxman312009-10-23

 If you buy Classic Army, your piston is highly likely to strip, Classic Army is infamous for putting pistons in their guns incapable of handling even stock springs.
I recommend geting an Echo 1 gun and spending the $100 or so you would otherwise have spent on the more expensive Classic Army brand upgrading the internals; you will get a gun that is stronger, more reliable, and no more expensive.

lickpoison (author)canis_lupus2009-12-04

I know what you mean. One of my friends put a MASSIVE spring in his CA15. I think it was an M190 or something. One shot stripped his piston clean.
WARNING: don't ever think about using something that strong in an AEG. EVER. It also stripped the ALUMINUM pistion's back teeth after one clip.

Vertigo666 (author)canis_lupus2009-11-28

 You can save another $15 or so by just going with JG, pretty much the same guns, just without a warranty.

airsoftbeast40 (author)2009-11-27

a ghillie is really awesome if you are a sniper but if you are not army bdus are really good thats what i use if you look at my profile picture i am wearing a head cover that made me look exactly like a iraqui soldier and i have a army camo netting above me ....this is what a sniper position can look like if you are sniping you should probably have a spotter=someone to help you watch for people and he should have an automatic so that if you are seen he can put down some covering fire while you get to safety

airsoftbeast40 (author)2009-11-27

camo is not to intimidate if you use it right its so noone will ever see you until you have already shot them

Thank you for the comment. I will change it right away.
