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
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.
