In this instructable you will find many different types of airsoft games, some you already know and some you may not know because I made them up.
P.S. On all game types you make up the rules, such as how many hits to die, time limit, score limit, etc.
Step 1: TDM
This is probably the most commonly played airsoft game type ever, for those of you who don't know tdm stands for team death match, two teams fight each other until all the players on one team are eliminated.
Step 2: CTF
This is probably the second most common game type, ctf standing for capture the flag. In this game type there are two teams each team has a flag, (or other object in absence of flags) the other team has to capture the flag and bring it back to their flag, the first team to reach the score limit wins.
Step 3: President
Another common game type, in the "president' game type there is one player who is the "president" the "president" gets half the players to protect him and be his bodyguards, the rest of the players get to be assassins who try to kill the" president" if the president gets shot the game is over and the assassins win, if the president successfully gets to a designated location without getting shot or the assassins are eliminated than the "president's" team wins.
P.S. Give the pres. and his bodyguard a few minutes to hide before starting the game.
Step 4: Alien
In this game type there is one player who is the alien, the rest of the players are the humans opposing the alien. The alien's goal is to turn all the humans into aliens, if a human gets shot once by the alien then they become an alien. The game ends when all the humans are turned into aliens or all the aliens are dead, however the only way to kill an alien is with a shot to a designated body part such as the head, arm, leg, or chest, if the alien gets shot anywhere other than the designated body part he does not die, the humans however die from being shot once anywhere.
Step 5: Ninjas
I made this game type up myself, it is very similar to CheesySnackMAN's ninja game, only mine is for airsoft. This game type is to be played at night only, other wise it just doesn't work. In this game type lets say you have around ten people, (you do not need ten, it can be any number of people) so with ten people 3 people will be attackers and 7 people will be ninjas, although it may seem uneven the ninjas are armed only with toy knives and the attackers with full auto airsoft guns. The attackers must try to capture an objective in ninja territory and the ninjas must defend the objective. The game is over when either all the ninjas or attackers are eliminated or if the attackers capture the objective.
Step 6: Search and Destroy
Search and destroy is a game type in which one team has two objectives to defend and the other team has a bomb or kitchen timer. The team with the bomb or kitchen timer must plant the timer on one of the objectives, the other team must then defuse the bomb by grabbing the timer and taking it at least 100-200 feet away from the objective. The game is over when either the bomb goes off on the objective, one team is eliminated or when the bomb is defused by the other team.
Step 7: Free for All
Pretty simple, every man for himself, last one standing wins.
Step 8: Squad Deathmatch
In this game type its basically the same as tdm only with 3 or 4 or more teams and each team has only 2-4 people, depending on how many people you have.
Step 9: Wingmen
Like squad deathmatch only 2 players vs. everyone else, the two players should be given a few minutes to hide, one of the two players should probably have a sniper rifle so that is like a sniper/spotter team.
Step 10: Treasure Hunt
In this game type a neutral party will place a treasure, prefably in a box somewhere in the designated playing area. Two, (or more) teams are fighting to find the treasure. The team who finds the traesure has to have one person carry it back to their base like ctf. The person carrying the treasure can have no weapons, except a fake knife so guards are very important, if they drop the treasure the treasure can be picked up by anyone on either team and taken back to their base. If you choose the teams may be given treasure maps to make finding the treasure easier.
Step 11: Hostage Rescue by Kve23
In this game type inspired by kve23 there are two equal teams, both teams start out on different sides, half of one team is taken to the other teams base with no guns and are spread out and hidden inside (or outside) they will be the hostages. When the hostages are hidden the game begins, the other teams objective is to find and rescue their teamates once they find them they must reach a designated spot to win, half of all hostages must survive and reach the designated area in order for their team to win, the other team wins if they kill all the hostages, or if the rescuers die before they rescue any hostages. No killing hostages before any rescuers are close by. Generally rescuers would be smart to be sneaky.This is a good Indoor airsoft game.
Step 12: Downed Pilots by Sir Hc
In this game type made by Sir Hc ; X players are the pilots, who are carrying automatics with little ammo, are sent to hide in opposite corners of the map while x number of teams patrol the area and try to find them, no killing pilots. All teams want all of the pilots no matter what.
Step 13: Easter Egg Special
Basically a neutral party hides easter eggs, and the players try to find. It can be teams or free for all, the goal is to obtain all the easter eggs. If somebody takes an egg you need shoot 'em and take it back!
Those are all the game types I can think of right now, if you know any other good ones or have made a good one up, let me know and I will put it on here and give you credit. Also remember if you are playing any game type at night bring flash lights for when it gets pitch black or you are likely be eaten by a Grue.
p.s. that game is fun for being text based....
