One of the best sports ever created. Takes more creativity than paintball. It can be fast or slow paced. 3 main differences between airsoft and paintball: 1. It hurts less but you will still know if you are hit. So in airsoft being hit is under the honor system. 2. You can play airsoft 2 days in a row. With paintball you would have too many bruises to actually want to play 2 days. 3. Airsoft guns are much more realistic.
Airsoft is better than paintball in some perspectives just as paintball is better than airsoft in other perspectives.
