list the pros and cons of airsoft and paintball.

My opinion:

Airsoft:

Pros
-more realistic
-cheaper bullets

cons
-"honesty game"

Paintball:
-no need to be honest (kitang kita na if hit)

cons
-expensive bullets
-not realistic ang mga guns



What are your insights?

I dont think guns need to be realistic for a game to be fun.
Its a sport, not a war ;)

airsoft less expensive!
no evidence of a hit!

paintball more expensive!
obvious hit marks!

but it for you to choose. really can't tell if you hit someone if there is no mark. so many liers out there, pride exists.

my own experience in paintball, played with someone i don't know i already hit him i was very sure but still fires back. when the game was over i saw the mark i was able to hit him. but then too much pride don't want to admin he got hit.
so much more with airsoft with less evidence of hits.

but again still choices.

Wipers get booted out of our home field especially if caught by the refs.

Both games are fun, but as stated Paintballs leave marks hence more difficult to cheat.

hmm ... another of those paintball and airsoft threads ... sigh ...

similar threads like this were already existent and closed in some airsoft or paintball forums as they always spark unwanted flames from either side ...

being both a paintballer or airsofter, its just basically the same for me ... i've been playing wargames since 1986 and i get the same fullfillment whether i play paintball or airsoft ... after all, its just a recreational sport or hobby ... the adrenalin rush is the same ...

of course, the main difference is the equipment (and costs) ... but you cant compare apples with oranges ... cheers !!!

Pro Airsoft :)

Its as close as I can get to becoming a soldier or mercenary, and at my puny 5' 2" this is a fantasy come true. Even the pain is worth it. I get to gear up and feel the rush.

Pati women. :flowers:

I was a paintball player before I got into airsoft. Actually honesty does exist in both games. In paintball a person can discreetly wipe the paint off and say it's just a "splatter". At Airsoft it's the "Zombie" thing. So I guess that honesty is still the golden rule in both games

So pointers, aside from the adrenaline rush and the price tag difference(airsoft is cheaper) here are the differences:
Paintball
1.) exotic Buck Rogers guns
2.) Hide and seek type shooting
3.) Ammo limited to your budget
4.) Have to rent most of the gears.


Airsoft
1.) realistic guns
2.) Military Simulated(MILSIM) games
3.) Cheap BBs(ammo)
4.) you can own your own gears hence you know the behavior of you AEG

these were the reason why I moved to airsoft. :cool:

Airsoft - Better guns and more realistic. But still the problem of hits not being "felt"

Best adrenaline rush I got is ambushing an opposing team's ambush team by myself. Hid under a bush with several nasty bugs and waited for the other team's ambush squad(4 person). After they passed me by I slowly crept up and did a rambo number on their backs. LOL!
