Airsoft Knife? PLZ REED KTHX Answered

When you have an airsoft war, do you use knives? I don't mean real knives, of course, I mean something that you could use to simulate a silent melee attack.

'Cause I have an idea. What if you made a thingy, that when you push it against an object (an enemy, in this case) it would let loose an airsoft BB, "killing" the target, like a knife? Huh, huh? Good idea, right?

Also, check out my new slideshow.

Airsoft Gun Silencer

Also also, when/if you play airsoft, what exactly counts as a kill? One shot, anywhere? And do you know you've died when you get hit (when you feel the sting)? Do you use the honor system?


i made one out of a flip flop that i saw from an instructable and sometimes i carry it around durning airsoft wars but i haven't used it in a knife battle when i could sneak up on someone and stab them

some, people use fake knives in airsoft, but they dont even have to shoot a bb, in some skirmishes if your within 5ft of a person you can count it as a knife kill and get them out.

So... you're thinking of a bayonet on a pistol...?

No. Not a bayonet at all.

lol, just thinking, cause that would be kind of weird... ...so you're thinking of "Call of Duty" style? I dunno, everyone does things their own way; it's really your choice...

I was thinking like an airsoft contraption that shoots a BB out of the tip of a fake knife or something. I was just wondering if they exist, I don't actually have a use for it, or go to airsoft wars or anything.

Well, mabe not BB's, but something thin that would fit in a knife. You should try a couple things out; maybe even make an instructable...

they actually make rubber knifes to use in an airsoft game. look around at some sites, u should find one pretty easy.

I agree with AA, some kinda of marking system like a knife that expells a small amount of paint, or something, then people would know when they have been hit.

use airsoft paintballs, then you know when your hit

me and friends just shoot the hell out of each other. what i'd do is take wash-able markers, like crayola ones that would wash out of clothes or skin easily. then use it as a knife. if you use a red one, then it will simulate blood!!!!!!

I got this fun toy knife where when you "stab" someone with it, the blade is pushed backwards into the handle, so it looks like you are stabbed. My kill system is usually like this:
1 headshot= dead
4 armshots= dead
2 leg shots= dead
2 chest shots= dead
