Guide to airsoft

I know people have been starting to do alot of these airsoft guides, and I would like to help out.
I have been playing airsoft for the last couple of years, and I have picked up some pretty good strategies I will share with you.

Thing you will need

airsoft gun

mask (highly recommended)

airsoft bullets

and a field to play in

smoke bombs (optional)

airsoft grenades (optional)

and to go the extra mile you can even make a airsoft grenades and smoke bombs.

Step 1: Field

first step is the field, you will need a field that is at least two ackers for more than four people. And you will need BUNKERS or FOXHOLES anything that will hide you.

BUNKERS
I myself built bunkers out of fallen trees and old trash that was in the field that I play in

FOXHOLES
to build foxholes all you will need is a shovel, all you have to do is dig holes three feet deep and three feet wide. That you can sit in to hide from enemy fire and you can even build trenches to connect the foxholes

Step 2: GUNS

okay the next step is guns!!! the most important part, Your gun is your
life line you don't buy a good enough gun... you lose!!!

you don't take care of it... you lose!!!

if you want a realy good AEG, you will need to spend at least 150 dollars. anything under that mostlikly will not be a very good gun.

here are some brands to look into.
ICS
echo1
Tokyo Marui
KSC
Classic army
G&G
King Arms
Systema



so with that said, here are some good airsoft sites.

www.Kapowwe.com (highly recomended)

www.airsoftgi.com

www.airsplat.com

www.shortyusa.com


these are the sites that I have dealt with and www.kapowwe.com is by far the best...

what vest is in the picture with that m16
My team pwns we have a guy with a 470 fps gas Barret and me with an MP5 One of the guys has 2 semi-auto deagles and duel wields. and a bunch of guys with G36s or M4s or SCARS.
DDDOOOUUUBBBTTT IIITTT!!!!! no one in the right mind would dual-wield
i do semi-auto's are just as effective than as a spring m16
oh he does hes about 6ft4 and able to benchpress130lbs so he does and they are lethal painfull
dang... iv never realy liked getting shot with 1 CO2... good thing (for the guy on the recieving end) theyre semi- auto. i personaly prefer a good aeg over EVER using a GBB, but if it works for HIM...

I have storm troopers, special forces, shock troopers, defenders, engineers, scouts, and bike cavalry. The objective is to capture the enemy forts, with battles lasting several days.

Have you ever dug many trenches-four lines, each over twenty feet long-connected with other trenches? It's great in airsoft becuase it works-alot.
My team has an m14 3 m4s 3aks 2 thompsons 1 m16a4 2 m9s and 3 multishots

How should I finish my loadout? Here's what I have...

Green camo cap

darker green T-shirt

Sturdy hiking boots. They work and look like hiking boots but are flexible enought to run like sneakers

2 shot shotgun

I'll get an AEG and a pistol after I get my gun shipped from Florida

What am I missing (If anything)?

the one thing weird about my airsoft gun (it's a m16 a2) is that it curves up after about 60 feet of distance. don't say that mine is damaged because it did that when it was brand spankin new
your gun has hop-up.
a hop up mag yes, thats why it does it?
it heppens with both hop up your wind and weight of pellet (.12g are common to have fly out of projectory) I find .20 are better

I somewhat custom built my gun.

I noticed my M4 (walmart gun) was broken, so i took it apart to see if i could fix it. After taking the barrel apart, I though i could put it on the end of my stinger R39. Now i have an awesome gun in which i duct tape my Stunt Squad Spas-12 to the bottom of. All around (minus spas-12) 60$, the m4 came with a pistol too.

Try getting a neoprene face mask (SKULLSKINZ) they work wonders just wear goggles!!!
ive got a 300 fps red dot sight crossman riffle and a h and k p30 blowback with semi and fully auto 180 fps ( fun for small battles ) what do you think is it a good setup?
get a AEG that is 350-380 fps and get a gas pistol then your setup will b better
i cant get a gas (mom , said isnt it)
what about co2 they are diffrent
KNEXFRANTIC3 years ago
you missed out cybergun wich has the best
Cybergun is one of the WORST gunmakers in the world becides the KWC Guns But everything else made by CyberGun is the WORST
i just like them thats all just opinion not fact cyma prety cool though
im getting a TM Desert Eagle HARD KICK =D
wire mesh is okay if all uses goof wire meshs and high quality bbs
Y.A.P.I. - Yet another pointless Instructable. I don't mean to be rude, but there are way too many mediocre Airsoft guides out there and this is less than that. Stop clogging the Instructables servers with wasted bandwidth please.

your missing some brands like...
H&k
Aftermath (my fav!!! Got the kirinex)
CYMA(OK)
TSD
Colt
DPMS
you get the point
just search airsoft brands to get some more :) Good job by the way
 You do realize H&K, DPMS, and Colt aren't airsoft companies, right? Guns with those naming are manufactured by a seperate company, like KWA, and licensed by H&K,DPMS, or Colt. Also, no offense but Aftermath isn't that good. TSD's are mostly re-brands. CYMA is ACM but has exponentially improved over the past couple years. I would stick with HK or Japanese companies. 

I know that the aftermath krakenis a re-manufactured cyma Ak and that cyma are only re-manufactued from yet another company and that H&K, DPMS, and are made by kwa and then licenced but i was just pointing out the NAMES not just the manufactering companies. by the way aftermath is what police and inssuficcent spec-ops groups train with instead of using simunition whitch is only offered to military and elite law enforcemant for traing

 CYMA's aren't rebranded. They're just made in China factories. And for simulation training, police officers and the like use Systema PTW's.
acttuly if you want to know that police also train with aftermath heres the proof...
