* and paintball
are two sports that should be able to coexist, but don't. The sports both serve different markets. Paintball seems to entertain the people that tend to play "extreme sports". It is characterized by fast paced, hard hitting, action. Airsoft serves the more tactical crowd, who prefer teamwork and strategy over speed of action. For some reason, the majority of paintball players with internet access find it nescessary to diss airsoft and its players. Although the debate over the internet are very heated, there are no known incidents of airsoft players and paintball players engaging in a physical confrontation, even though both groups have been at the same location at the same time.
Several common misconceptions about airsoft, used by the immature people who find it nescessary to diss airsoft:
1. Myth: Airsoft doesnt hurt. Its for pussies who are afraid to get dime sized bruises.
Fact: from personal experience, this is far from the truth. Airsoft guns are well capable of not only bruising, but also puncturing skin, causing blood blisters, and chipping teeth, especially in CQB. Eye protection is just as nescessary in airsoft as it is in paintball. Although the radius of damage per bb is much smaller, much more bbs are slung at a given time than paintballs.
2. Myth: Airsoft is just for kids to screw around in their back yard who cant afford/cant get th...
A massive flame was between players of two sports: Airsoft and Paintball. The arguments on the internet are very heated and fanboys are pretty much the entire population on both sides. Contrary to popular belief, paintball is not simply getting an ultra bright suit, and running around, there is such thing as woodsball, which is just as tactical as any airsoft game. Another common misconception is that airsoft guns are for fags who aren't manly enough to join the military. In reality, many veterans or current military servicemen play airsoft.
However, these two groups continue to slander eachother with the same arguments and will probably never reach a conclusion.
Paintball Fanboy: Hey airgay player, why dont you man up and get some welts playing paintball lol 1337 l33T s4uc3
Airsoft Fanboy: Because I dont run around shooting paint at other fags wearing spandex suits
Paintball Fanyboy: you just can afford paintball guns you poor ass pusssy
Airsoft Fanboy: You're just jealous fag
Sensible Person: Both of you are fags, shut up with your "Airsoft vs Paintball" NOBODY GIVES A FLYING FUCK
A never ending debate/fight both on the internet and in real life between 2 sports: airsoft and paintball
Even thought there hasn't been any known physical fights between airsofters and paintballers the two sides are very hostile and hate each other
Paintballers say airsoft isn't even a sport because it isn't even competitive and that airsoft guns are too weak to make a bruise unlike paintball guns
Airsofters say that paintball guns don't even look real and look just like fake toys and that airsoft ammo is way cheaper and airsoft guns don't need gay C02 cartridges to work.
Airsofter: Gayball ammo is so stupid that you can't even get 300 gayballs for 5 bucks
Paintballer: Oh yea? Gaysoft guns are so weak that their bbs can't even fly 5 feet
Airsofter: Sure they can't, let me shoot you with my airsoft sniper from 5 feet and see how how deep the bb goes into your skin
Neutral Person: WOULD YOU GUYS SHUT THE SHIT UP!!!????
THE REST OF THE WORLD DOESN'T GAVE A FUCK ABOUT AIRSOFT VS PAINTBALL!!!!!
To be honest, I dont understand why people have to complain and argue about this subject. It is a fact that the two will never get along, but ill atleast try to shed some light on the subject. Most people who are in favor of airsoft think that it is gay, the guns dont hurt, they can barely go through paper and they have a max range of 10 feet. While in reality, some guns are like this, while most have the power to break skin and travel 100+ feet. In addition to this, with certain bbs, a airsoft gun can break and shoot through glass. Neither sport is for pussies, fags or military drop outs. I am on the side of airsoft, but I still love paintball. While the ammunition is different, the concept is the same: two teams, shoot the other guy.
