Introduction: Air Soft Grenade

Picture of Air Soft Grenade

this is a pretty cool biodegradable air soft grenade that doesn't produce any harmful shrapnel.

(i check my comments every day, so if you have a problem, concern, or and edit you would like me to know, just post a comment and ill get back to you very fast! stay classy!)

Step 1: Materals Needed

Picture of Materals Needed

2.note card (any size)
4.a pen
5.a fire cracker (or small fireworks)
6.air soft BB's
7.and a sheet of normal printer paper

Step 2: Make the Body

take the note card and fold it into a cylinder and put a piece of tape down the center and on either side.

Step 3: Make the Top and Bottom

Trace two squares around the edge of the cylinder but make it a bit bigger than the actual cylinder. Then cut them both out.

Step 4: Tape One End

Take one of the squares you just cut and tape it length-wise then width-wise then tape the edges down so it's secure.

Step 5: Trim

Place the firecracker inside of our grenade and measure about halfway up the fuse and cut the excess off

Step 6: Create the Top

Take the last square of paper and fold it in half (but don't crease it) and make a small cut with the scissors making a hole in the center.

Step 7: Fill the Nade!!

Now fill your grenade body halfway up with bb's, put the firecracker in the middle, then fill the rest around the firecracker.

Step 8: Put the Last Cover On

Now take the square that we cut earlier and place it on top of the grenade with the fuse protruding out of the hole. Tape it down securely and don't forget the corners.

Step 9: Yeah Your Done!!

Now when you are trapped or cornered etc. you can whip out your TE HE and scare the crap out of your opponents and win! I like to call them te he so that when I light it I yell "TEHE!!" and it warns my team members that there's a live grenade. Have fun!

*DISCLAIMER- I'm not responsible for any potential injures etc. After you make this device what you do with it is your fault not mine.

Nice job! Better then the crapy vinegar and baking soda where you have to throw them at trees!

dylanrichards (author)2012-01-20

wow so cool

OMFG!!! (author)2010-02-14


dude, was it m5000 or m8000? m8000s are huge.

the larger the number after the M, the weaker the explosive is

jetsmiley123 (author)OMFG!!!2010-02-28

 well, it all depends on the materials you choose to use, the thicker the paper, the more fire power you'll need, and so on. 

IDK632 (author)2009-07-02

if you put it in pvc pipe with the fire cracker end taped down can you use it for an emergency shotgun?

MrMadmonkey4 (author)IDK6322010-11-18

lol you could do that then chuck it like a tornado grenade so its spinning the bbs would go everywere

jetsmiley123 (author)IDK6322009-07-04

that might work, it sounds like a great idea, but only if your willing to loose a cupple of fingers in the presses! lol! just be sure you don't point it at anyone and always where safety goggles!

where did you get the fire crakers

pyromaniac2 (author)2009-02-24

wat kind of fire work did u use and were did u get it?

jetsmiley123 (author)pyromaniac22009-02-25

I used a waterproof fire cracker. i don't remember the exact brand, but you want it to have a long, green fuse so you can light it and get away/throw it.

pyromaniac2 (author)jetsmiley1232009-02-26

if i buy a string of firecrackers and take them off the string would the fuse be long enough???

You could just put the whole string of firecrackers in a grenade to make a chain affect, or something like that.

If you buy a string of firecrakers, the first one in the line usually have the green fuse which take longer to burn and you will also have a long fuse that runs all the way down the firecrackers that you could use, It would be better to use m-80's but they are now illegal in the US, but you can still buy and use the less effective m-100's though.

codongolev (author)pyromaniac22009-07-06

they go fast. I usually do that, though. you just have to chuck it RIGHT when it lights.

i would not recomend it. i used them and not only do they explode in ten feet, they are very unreliable. almost all of mine were duds

pyromaniac2 (author)pyromaniac22009-02-26

would all the fuses be long enough???

jetsmiley123 (author)pyromaniac22009-03-02

that depends if the fire crackers have a fast burning blackpwoder fuse (which most of them do ) but I think if you think you can light the fuse, and throw the grenade then go for it! :) (I'm not responsible for any injurious involving the grenade, and as always, where safety glasses)

grundisimo (author)2009-07-07

doesn't this make you get out of the round also because the bb's go in all directions.

jetsmiley123 (author)grundisimo2009-07-08

that is a true point, but if you use common scene and tactics, you can throw the grenade, and get behind a wall/barricade and stay safe.

jetsmiley123 (author)2009-06-27

you could try to figure out a way to use vinegar and baking soda, but that would be hard, I don't know of any other way of making a air soft grenade without a fireworks, sorry. =)

anth101 (author)2009-06-24

cool this will help me when I'm in an air-soft war, they won't see it coming

anth101 (author)2009-06-24

do you have an idea of what I could use besides of a fireworks

pirate of doom (author)2009-06-08

TE-HE!!!!!!!!!!!! that makes me laugh until the cows come home!!!!!!!

well thanks for saying that, and ya we do look pretty silly out their, TE-HE!!!!!!!!!! and then my team ducks and covers, and the next team doesn't know what hit them! LOL

It's the best airsoft grenade ever!
Of course, we have another good one, here:

thats mine. sorry didn't mean to put the same link twice didn't see urs

thanks for the comment! I took a look at your Instructable, and it seems very simple and effective! i think I'm going to use your design this weekend when i go airsofting, thanks!

the mechanical engineer (author)2008-10-31

i have done extinsive reaserch on dis topic (i am a huge airsofter and pyro) and have figured out that the best so far is to use a plastic baggie. comment if u want me to post. oh and its got a blast radius of aboout 30 feet with very even coverage

ye it

nerd12 (author)2008-08-23

can you use more than 1? you can atach the fuses together. it will spread it futher.

no u cann not. i have tried dis and all u get is one bang that shoots the bbs and another bang that does absolutly nothing. its imposible to get them to explode simultainiusly. its a waste.

unominame (author)2008-10-28

try using a m-200 fire cracker and metal bbs ouch! mabe u could use that for bb gun wars

bowhunterhall (author)2008-10-21

cool i am going to make one or ten of them

godfreyandthandi (author)2008-09-02

yea but i wouldnt put too much of a powerful one in in case u throw it at someones feet acidendily...

bdblock94 (author)2008-08-12
