Step 1: Appearance

Picture of appearance
this is here you get to play dress up. it sounds really girly, but it is mainly for intimidation.(it would scare you to death if you saw a guy fully decked out in a S.W.A.T. team uniform bust through your window. you may see veterans at a local field wearing full range ghille suits and combat vests. it all depends on your surroundings. for in-door battles, you don't need camoflauge. something black like a hoodie with goggles, a vest and knee and elbowpads would be perfect. for a home made vest, take an old, black or dark green backpack and cut out all the attatchments-like the waterbottle holder and other pouches. then, stitch or hot glue them to your hoodie-make sure its old so the at your house gets mad, and ta-da! your home made vest. I used the back pack material because it's loud so i know when i'm shot. for a wooded enviroment wear a camoflauge jacket and pants. to go the extra mile, use a ghille suit-i made another instructable on airsoft sniping, check it out to make a homemade ghille suit. on to part 2...

Step 2: Weapons and gear

okay, now that thats done with you can work on buying a gun.
you need a

Primary(rifle or automatic AEG)
your main weapon. try to find the FPS(feet per second) over 250 is what you want. 400 is pushing it unless it's a sniper.

Secondary(pistol or mini automatic)
use as a last resort. it must be ready for action at all times, loaded and reliable. 250-300 FPS is what you want to look for.

Other(acessories,landmines,grenades,ect.)
there are homemade tools you can make for this catagory(i'll make another instructable soon) airsoft grenades, smoke grenades, landmines, trip wires, are all optional. check your field for rules and regulations.

First off, don't use .12's. Bad idea. And Crosman is terrible, LPEGs (low priced electric guns) are garbage for Airsoft Games. Good for backyard. An homemade vest? HA! Good luck getting laid on, but hey whatever floats your boat. Also, for you people trying to get into airsoft, DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT get a sniper rifle for your first airsoft gun. It's not like Call of Duty. You should get a good priced AEG (Automatic Electric Gun). If you still feel like you should be a sniper, go on semi automatic. See how well you do with that. If you do great, go ahead. But I'm just saying I've seen way to many people say they want to snipe like on Call of Duty. NO. But the main thing about Airsoft is having fun. And remember kids... Make sure to call your hits and be safe! :)
When my friends and I play the average gun between all of us shoots at about 500 fps. The most is my friend's 1911 at 750 on the first shot (his dad is a cop). It's much more intense.

I got an idea if u lay low in a thicket of shrubs with a teamate till the enemy walks bye. After which you get out and open fire on them from the rear makes you a pussy

ok first off your wrong you dont have them stack on both sides of the door you have them stack on one side of the door and you go in "faster than lightning" so you can get ou tof the doorway or fatal funnel cause they will shoot at the door once your breach. dont form your men in a box in the room you will risk friendly fire that way. if you want to keep this lay out have ether brown or black go to the far corners and have ether blue or green stay back to cover the door. if it were me it just toss a cooked frag in there and then move in. but over all good lay out just needs some refinements
i agree man! the smoke will blind u guys 2 and ur totally gona have some friendly fire. i got one of those airsoft grenades with a cylinder shell and role it into th room it works great!
Well there you go but like i said its a good baseplate you just need to fine tune it a little
yea

You might want to be careful wearing a shemagh(thing in the picture) if you're not in a designated area for airsoft or paintball. The cops are a little touchy, especially if you take the orange tip off, and have an AK. you have been warned
 A kid in Florida was shot fatally by a police officer when he waived an airsoft pistol without the orange tip in a parking lot.
 lol well yeah thats kinda why its ILLEGAL to wave an imitation firearm around without the yellow/orange tip. cops don't have the time to determine if its fake

Yeah, brandishing a weapon and stuff....
When I have an airsoft war I have 1 theory that I will always live by and that is that "they can't kill you if they can't see you" when I play I always try to find a good spot and since I am a sniper I wear a ghillie suit. After I find a good spot and get myself camoflauged I just wait for the opponent to come to me. One thing you shouldn't do though is be a big coward always stay close enough to the battle so you can get some action too

 It's also a little frightening when a guy dressed like a terrorist starts shooting at you.

when you clear a room you have 2 guys stacked up against the wall if there is a door you open yell flash bang in throw the flash bang close the door as soon as it goes of rush inside taking out whoevers inside i would recommend a mp5 for entering an clearing
wats the point of a rushroom tactic (RRT) youll obviously loose probably two three people idk but the odds of surviving an RRT is 1 to 1000000000 especially with all spring guns if its a low equip airsoft war now if you had all or mabe three people with full auto or even semi auto extended mag m5's or m16's you would make it alive and also have a scout posted at the entrance or a look out because obviously your gonna be blinded by the smoke too.
anyway wen you yell CLEAR or wat ever you yell more guys will hear AND as a result your trapped and dye so just have 5 people or DIE.
i sont really use a side arm because my gun is to heavy to drop and attemp to shoot my freinds i have a sprin m14 and they have shotguns and full auto and co2 tauruses its terrible out there
any ggod ideas for non-explosive grenades, and any good ideas for less than dangerous smoke grenades?
go buy a steam machine. for cheapness, effectiveness, and efficiency, your not gonna get non explosive
btw, i meant non-pyrotechnic, not necessarily non-explosive. i gave up on that tho. for smoke grenades, i just use the KNO3 and sugar mixture inside my own shell. take a small diameter can(red bull and double shots and such, cut the top off. take a regular size can and cut the diameter of the other in the top. fill the small one with the mixture and run out a wick. put it in the other can upside down. hot glue them together. but remembe rot poke holes in them.) as far as grenades, still havent found one... :(
Christmas, you can add food dye for colour (red/orange works best), and another hint, add a bit of bicarbonate of soda to the mix before it sets to make it "smoke" for longer
I have used food dye and it made absolutely no difference... And I use baking soda, but i dont notice a big difference.
u can use smoke guns/nades using dry ice (i think its frozen N2 or CO2) or u can use some sort of gun or spring-driven nade to spray flour( i think wheat is cheap). flour is white, so it can be used for blocking sight. if you ignite it after you sprayed it into the air (just drop a butning match into the air-flour mixture) itll explode. so better stay away from flour-clouds. it can rlly hurt being burned by exploding flour.
no. dry ice doesnt float on air. the smoke sinks, if you want to hide your ankles, thats fine'
for smoke grenades, its gonna cost a shitload without fire or whatever and non explosive gnades are hard to make without gas but mines are easy as hell, a rat trap or sumtin is easy for mines. check out the dominator or something like that, search airsoft and its on the right side of the first page.

I always use my 350fps pistol as my main weapon and my rifle as my secondary weapon.
Why would you do that? The only time I EVER use my pistol is when I'm sniping and someone sneaks up on me and I don't want to have to move my rifle.
I do because my Co2 pistol is my most powerful gun, it is also my only semi-auto gun, and It is light and easier to carry.
i agree a dual pistol is better than a shotgun.
someone knows strong, but cheap airsoft guns? i bought a "SIG SAUER P228", 63 meters/second, 20meters range and 13BB mag for 50€ (i think 20-30US$). it broke after 2 months. i also tried building a gun (vortex-block and 300grams CO2 cartridge) but thats forbidden here in germany, so i cant use it in airsoft fights
