    LOL an airsoft forum on a paintball website?! Ha! Who'd have ever thought it?

    I have played airsoft for several years, and it is good fun, but somewhat different, it certainly draws a... different crowd to paintball I've found.

    Personally, I find airsoft a fun milsim gam, where paintball is all about Airball, tournaments, and the competitive sport

    They're two different worlds, and both fun

    Absolutely agree with you on the 'Egos' issue in airsoft... you do seem to get a lot of pricks in the game. Me and a few mates who play fairly regularly give it 110% when we go, if only to nail the guys who take it so seriously and piss them off

    At the end of the day... it is boy/girls playing big toy soldiers, and I suppose tournament paintball makes no disguise of this, even going so far as to make it a spectator sport...

    I think a lot of the skills you learn playing airball translate very well into airsoft, and many airsofters would do well to remember the genesis of their game

    I guess it's like the rugby/football argument in some ways?

    Airsoft always appealed to me for one reason. Lots and Lots of PISTOLS! The choice there is endless.

    Airsoft v Paintball

    Thanks for the extensive feedback Wildways based on what you say their method of play is not an attractive one. Like you I like to see how Mr Sable's does it before I shy off completely. One point in respect of the surrender rule is that not the same in walkons?

    On Sunday, I decided to give Airsoft a go, and found a club called Cerberus ( http://www.cerberusairsoft.co.uk ) based in Bradford. The have several game venues they alternate between ranging from:

    - The Sandpit is an 80 acre York stone Quarry in West Yorkshire, overlooking Frizinghall and Bradford making it our most unusual site.
    - The Green Zone - used for smaller games, and training.
    - The Complex is our newest site. The location is a huge disused industrial facility near Leeds, West Yorkshire.
    - Bradford Woodland is our primary woodland site is set in a 540 acre forestry plantation near Keighley in the heart of Yorkshire.
    - Sheffield Woodland is a 100 acre woodland site near Sheffield, lower and easier in places than our primary woodland site at Rivock Edge, again it is a pine plantation, but more varied in areas.
    - Mystery Zone - TBC

    I played at The Sandpit.

    It was a cold morning and I got there around 8:45am. Was greeting with a bacon sarnie and I then registered. They allow 12 rental players to play, with full kit supplied. It cost 45 and with that, I got - Airsoft weapon, glasses, full camo clothing, assault vest and 2000 rounds of ammunition.

    There were around 50-60 players, maybe more - different styles of clothing depending on the look they are trying to pull off ie
    LA Swat
    British Commando
    DEA officer
    Ukranian Army
    American Army

    Walking around (I went by myself) I saw some other new players and they were talking to some of these regulars. The amount of negativity towards paintball was actually quite shocking. I went there wanting to enjoy both games, but they see paintballs as kids with toy guns. Let's forget that they have toy guns too... anyway, that was the impression I got.

    We had a safety briefing - usually stuff. They told people the limits for the day ie because a couple of guys had new rifles, they upped the FPS for rifles/pistols from 350fps to 370fps. Single shot guns were 425fps and bolt action sniper rifles were 500fps.
    They also said "you will get hurt so we recommend you wear full face protection and dont have exposed skin". Not many people wore full face protection, and those that did wore mesh half masks.
    Also, there is no surrender rule, so if you sneak up on someone, you HAVE to shoot them.

    Game started about 10am and from 10-1pm, it was a case of 'capture the 3 points and hold' style game. There were two massive stone hills and 1 stone building that needed to have 2 men on at all times to keep it. That was it. The players took everything so seriously - but they didn't use tactics.
    Instead of trying to take a few guys out from different angles (so that they couldn't defend themselves), they'd go at them head on, so all the opposition had to do, was slap it on full auto and spray and pray.

    After a couple of hours of play, the area seemed to have hardly any people there. About 10 or so of our team were at spawn, sitting around not playing. Same for the other team. It made the game turn boring. Too big venue, too few players.

    The gun I had was a kinda M4 Classic Army gun with a high-cap mag (requires winding to load the bbs). Range wasn't really any different from paintball markers. Probably less accurate too. Don't expect to be able to snipe people from afar. You can dodge shots and pelvic thrust the snipers to pee them off. I personally couldnt feel the hits on me - but you knew if you were hit as you 'heard it' hit. Yep, one instance when I had a shoot out with a 'regular'. He never shot me, but shouted out "You're hit - I watched it hit you!" - so rather than argue, I walked off - he never hit me.

    At lunch time, we were fed pie and sausage rolls... I decided to head home. I'd used up the 2000 BBs I was given, and didn't want to spend 10 on 4,000 more. It also didn't grab me.

    As I said, it felt like too much 'willy waving' and egos. Men playing soldiers. Don't get me wrong, i'd try it again but probably with Andy. Put it like this, before I went I was hell-bent on buying all the gear and on Sunday, I was convinced I would never play again until I spoke to Andy. Now i'd see how it goes with him (do you have hire kit?) and go from there.

    Is it cheaper than paintball? Hmmm

    Basic marker - 150-250 for an ok marker to play.
    Then you need 2 batteries.
    A few mags - they recommend mid-cap ones.
    mesh half mask.
    mesh goggles.
    Call it 250-350 to get your kit.

    Expensive guns don't mean better guns, from speaking to people. Expensive guns fall over too often and you have to fix them a lot.

    You have to join a club (i believe) which is 40-50 a year. Walkons are 20 for members, 25 for non members. BBs are about 10 for 3000-4000 BBs.

    Also, some places have rules where if you are close to someone, you have to use a pistol. So pistols are around 100ish for a blow back one (sliding top, looks real) - then they run off of gas, like 'green gas'.

    So maybe it is a tad cheaper than paintball, but hmmm I personally didn't find it as fun.

    First look at the hardware
    Everyone who plays will be issued with the G36 Assault Rifle. Shotguns are also available.

    Re: Airsoft - Do you play

    I reckon I'll have to come up and give this a go sometime! My nephew's been wanting to get into airsoft for a while (a killhouse just opened up over the road from us, but it's BYO gear) so it might as well be somewhere familiar!
    How does it work anyway? I can imagine a lot of honesty being involved with hits (or dishonesty in the case of that bloke that shot you Wildwayz).
