a game which uses replicas of real guns that shoot small brass or plastic ball bearings (BBs). this game is just as good as paintball. paintball are for those who like just being able to shoot people and run around avoiding paintballs the size of nickels, airsoft is for those who like MilSim and using realistic guns. arisoft i usually played by older people, and paintball is usually played by younger people, although this does not imply that airsoft players are more responsible (i went paintballing once and some guy that looked like he was 20-30 years old took off his mask in the middle of the game cuz he got hit)
paintballer: whats the difference between airsoft and paintball?
airsofter: well you dont get welts the size of quarters for one and you use realistic guns, but theres not much difference both are pretty good
paintballer: cool i wanna try it.
paintball and airsoft are just as good as each other, neither one is better, for all you nerds using this as a forum, just please shut the fuck up.
