airsoft/paintball ideas Answered

i need ideas! homemade airsoft grenades, mines, or anything else that can give you an edge on my next game in the woods.


I have created a rocket propelled paintball grenade launcher (RPPG) that is mounted underneath my tipman 98 that will launch 30 yards using only the air from my HPA tank. The blast area is nearly 10 feet of paint when launched.

theres a category of airsoft

Add me on Facebook and I MIGHT share my ideas with you but i can't give you all because we plan on starting a field soon. An official field. Panda_Pannell on facebook. Or just pm me on here.

Some impact smoke bombs could be quite useful. I know how to make them if anyone wants some help with that.

that would be cool should make a video showing it working as well as a instructable

ok so this is my idea.so paint ur gun(if ur allowed or if the police dont see you)black and/or and red with camouflage.

i recently figured out how to make a potato gun(shoots potato's at about 60 MPH) and i'm thinking on modifying it into a mortar that shoots a homemade airsoft grenade.

have one to. its 5' 6 tall painted camouflage . i think it can shoot up to 300 yards

put a light any ware Mach in the barrel and fire!!! It explodes!!!

Perhaps a laser/mirror at shin height that is used to detect when someone breaks the beam, rigged to send a radio squawk to you or your team, so you know right where someone is? Unlike mines, it would work multiple times, and provide enough intelligence about the enemy's position to give you a distinct advantage. For example, set it up on the only way into the spot you're in, so if someone's trying to sneak up on you, you get advance warning.

will ypu post something on how to make that i really want to make it but i dont understand how it works

I'm making something, it should be done soon. It has to do with an altoids can and a airsoft gun.

I've got a potato gun style airsoft RPG. with hairspray, styrofoam sabots, and a payload of bbs, I get a nice shotgun effect. if I use something more solid, like potato plugs or something along those lines, I get a nice 'bunker buster' kind of shot (we use it to bust any cover in scenario games). If you load a small rock through it, you can rip through cardboard with ease (at a relatively short distance)

Problem is, it can't attached an airsoft gun. Which is OK, cuz RPGs arnt for sniping, they are for blowing stuff up. Bear that in mind, it works great. I'd make an Instructable, but I have no "in the making" photos...

P.S, the rocks work great when your arrogant friend puts cardboard armor around a riding mower and calls it a tank. two shots and he gave up...with a nasty sized welt or two....

put a fire cracker in plastic wrap with BBs.

That would be fun until you and your friends get hit by smoldering hot plastic.

a buzooka. yes a buzooka! i'll make an instructable on how to do it.

Here's an idea. Under barrel grenade launcher. Basicly a 2 Piece of PVC pipe, a valve, Paintball stainless steel tee, and Stainless steel line.

How about this. Something like the fist pack by reckless paintball with some kind of zinger system that returns the pod to the velcro as soon as you let go. also a hopper that opens by pressure switch. THis would cut you reload times down to about 1 second

im making an airsoft sheild holds up to 400 fps


i got back to working on my ghille suit recently. i also need to but a few scopes,lasers,and flashlights for my steyr AUG and other guns.

I hope you don't use the lasers and flashlights in conjunction with the guille suit. Lasers and Flashlights are only useful in CQC for quick aim, and even then only marginally. They're both like big "SHOOT ME" sings anywhere else

Nifty little thing at the top-right corner of the screen there is called a search bar.

Typing "Paintball" produces:

And this

Searching "Airsoft" produces:

and this

Finding all that and making links took me about 5 minutes. Imagine all your free time... If people like you just searched for something once in a while, we could have a much cleaner forum and much happier people.
