What is Airsoft?
Airsoft is a combat simulation sport, similar to paintball but without the ridiculous cost or bruises!
Teams of players go head to head in a range of gamemodes. Such as: Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, VIP Escort and much more. But ultimately, your goal is to shoot your opponents!
Unlike paintball, airsoft uses 6mm plastic pellets for ammunition. BBs are significantly cheaper than paintball at around 5% of the cost per shot. They are also much less painful than painballs at 1/10th the energy in each round (so no big bruises).
