>>85It's only been two years. So how has COVID treated your local fields?Mine are outdoor so things are fairly normal.
>>117its been up and down i have play ed in a year because nothing is in my aloud travel range
>>117Haven't hosted a single game in 17 months.The neighbouring field hosted like two games past summer that I missed.
>>117master chief number
>>85Fuck yeah, lads.
Who here /extreme airsoft/?Ever received any injuries while playing?
>>165What's "extreme airsoft"? What's the ruleset?
>>85Is an AN-94 airsoft gun ever going to be made?
>>244You're kidding, right?
>>244What happened here?
>>244>Tfw you're playing with someone who is a medic in the army and an enemy fucks up his knee on a rock>We need a medic!>We have a medic!>We need a REAL medic!>We HAVE a real medic!
>>365High speed ground impact breaking his arm after snagging his foot on a tree root iirc.
>>165A big guy at site fucked his ankle and and air ambulance had to lift his ass off the hill
>>85Cope, you'll never be in the military
>>117Haven't played in ages - I work at a paintball site, they've had to start branching out to airsoft now, which kicks arse, work/play at the same place.
why the HECK do they call it airsoft when the pellets are clearly hard?
>>790nice, employe discount too?
>>802because the rifs use air/gas to shoot
>>805Yeah, only downside is all my co-workers either thinking I'm a faggot for playing airsoft rather than paintball, or trying to molest me gear.Now post your loadouts, fags.
I did airsoft with a group in college once and it showed me better than any movie or propaganda could that war is Hell. I don't know how anyone can enjoy playing for more than a few minutes. I had to stay and keep playing for the duration that the group was staying, which was several hours, and we took a few short breaks but I always dreaded the moment I'd have to pick up my gun and get back out there.
>>869Are you a massive faggot? Or perhaps a jannie?
>>852and thiswork on getting a 'nam set
>>117One of the local ones just said fuck it and closed for the year, but since it was an outdoor cqb like field they survived just fine because their only real overhead was property taxes since they hire refs on a per season basis. The other one is somehow falling apart despite being open last year, and being a woodsball field. The owner keeps making excuses and trying to jack the price way up for a game.
>>871Looks very comfy, who's the Thomson by?
>>943its the old king arms one,keeping it running 9 years now
>>802Uses air to fire and it shoots much softer then a real firearm. Or it was just a shit translation from nip.
>>1055its right, it japan its call survival game
This is a historic moment, i will post my airsoft and everyone else should too
>>85How do you protect your balls, belly and face? How much Joule so the Airsoft guns have you play with?
>>1096Here's a kit I've been working on lately. I do have a multicam hi-speed, low drag loadout, but sometimes you want something with a little bit more soul.
>>1154>Belgian Uh yeah about that...
>>1144in ireland, we have a legal limit of 1 joule on all guns
>>1144For face protection you wear goggles - in bongland some people wear mesh masks, but, unless you're room clearing a snood, scarf or shemagh should be sufficent. For the balls and belly, just wear proper clothes. Not too thick though, or you can't always feel your hits, I've seen that happen to guys wearing plate carriers before.
>>1168this hands are the most likly to get fucked at a game
>>85I fucking bought a toyko mauri P90 at the beginning of the big gay and I still haven't been able to properly use it. We used to host events on a semi-private plot of land, shit was kino, three paths, one side with slight high ground and a small stream cutting through the center. I miss it so much bros :(
>>1158I'm not Belgian, I just love Jigsaw camo and wanted to use some nice milsurp on the field. I'm currently using a Specna M4 with it, but eventually I'd like to upgrade to an AKS-74U for top tier insurgent feel. I carry my Glock (though I'd like a CZ75) in a jacket pocket rather than a holster just cause it looks more insurgenty.Anyway, let's not just be materialistic gear fags, let's talk tactics. >playing attack and defend>enemy team has a fortified and defended "fort" (big building, at least 20 people in it) which you;ve got to attackWhat's your general plans anons? Fire and manoeuvre closer, than chuck in grenades? Snipers and *lots* of suppressive fire? A banzai charge through smoke grenades?
>>1144>ballsits only a 6mm bb, BDUs should have enough space where it wont hit>stomachim not a fat fuck so plate carrier covers most of my torso. Else you just get hit.>FaceYou can wear a full facemask (like a paintball mask), Goggles/Ansi Glasses with 1/2 mask, or just the eye pro (still recommend some type of teeth protection and to never do this where you will encounter CQB).>Joule>1jFull auto SMGs no med>1.52jSemi auto rifles no med>1.88jLMG/MMG w/ 50~60ft MED>2.81jSniper/DMR

FFS. There's finally a fucking airsoft thread in a board where anons won't immediately shit on it, and I sold my gear a month ago.
We did it bros! That last week on the other board was really weird.
>>1154ah yes, generic action movie terrorist. Are you going to speak into a cell phone or radio seated at a cafe and then cut to a massive explosion?
>>1154>>1222no offense, but wearing a beret makes you look like a tripfag irl
>>1405>the bomb has been planted
>tfw get vfc mp7 aeg finally working after being a huge waste of money for a year the pandemic hits and cant use it for another yearFuck VFC for botching the gen1 so hard.
>>1096Shitty paint anon.
I kinda want a systema PTW with infinity gearbox.
It’s good to be back again
>>1437What's that rifle? I love the look of it. It reminds me of a Lasgun from 40k.
>>802The first airsoft guns run basically 7mm nerf pills. Also the power limit in japan is <1j which is definitely lower than whatever classified as an airgun there.
>>1532G&G GK5D. copy of swedish AK 5D. They are getting pricy because they are pretty old and have generational problems like canted sights and rails and rare replacement parts.
>>1553Well I love the look of it. If I ever decide to make some RP Guardsmen airsoft build (been thinking about it for quite some time), I'll definitely consider it. Thanks, anon.
>>1574has to be extreme when countries want to ban it.
>>1592the issue there is that your politicians are faggier than the sport.
>>1604Okay, fine. Paintball is a lot cooler than Airsoft. It's the coolest sport ever. Will you leave the thread now?
>>1574Honestly surprised it took this long for the first "lol airsoft is for fagz" tard to show up.
Finally a place to discuss this great sportToo bad myself and my friends all gave it up years ago

>>1640Fuck why am I looking at the cieling
>someone shoots polar star>"No full auto in the building xD"uuuuggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
>>85after reading the pastebin in the OP, I do agree on the sniper part. NEVER start off with a sniper rifle in airsoft as a beginner. I completely ignored this word of advice 9 years ago ever since I watched e-celebs on jewtube do sick shots on players and thought it looked awesome especially since I liked aggressive recon sniping in Battlefield 3 and 4. After so much time and money was wasted on my gear and upgrades, I wasn't getting the exact results I wanted when I played some games, there was only my shots missing everywhere despite cleaning and doing heavy maintenence on my gun a lot. I ultimately gave up on trying airsoft ever again and took a 4 year break from the hobby until I wanted to pick up on it again since I'm getting bored of vidya.
Had a TM m14 years and years ago, loved that thing
I have a friend giving me an old echo1 scar-l from like 2011, I'm looking to mod it and then sell my NGRS M4 that I never used. Would that probably not be lipo-ready? If not, what would it need, a new motor? I'm probably gonna throw a gate titan in it so the stock battery wiring doesn't matter.
>>753and you'll never be a woman.
>>1744Slap a mosfet into it. A basic 3034 variant should be enough to make it “lipo ready”. Also run only 7.4v sticks to keep it eating itself out>selling the recoil shock that havent been usedDamn, anything wrong with it that makes it unused? Could always do some plinkings with it on the back yard lol.
>>1144I've got a Steel Mouth I use under my balaclava to protect my teeth after a player at my field got a chipped tooth that cost 200 dollars to fix.
>>1758>Slap a mosfet into it. A basic 3034 variant should be enough to make it “lipo ready”. Also run only 7.4v sticks to keep it eating itself outThe gate titan has a mosfet, so I guess I'd be all set with that?>Damn, anything wrong with it that makes it unused?Nothing's wrong with it, I just spent way too much money on it and I'd need to spend a good deal more to get it running how I want it to. I don't even care about the recoil, I just like how it stops firing when your mag is empty. I got it when I had a nice job lined up but it fell through and now money's super tight so I've been digging around for stuff I can sell.I like tinkering with things so I think I'd have more fun modding a basic gun anyways. Cycle completion is also the #1 thing I want, and if I start with a free hand me down I can afford a gate titan like it's nothing. I should also add that this echo1 is also unused, it's just old
>>1647Phoneposting does that. Editing the pic on the phone and saving it again works on mine.>TFW local fields are still Corona-Closed
>>1800I need to get me one of those to fit underneath my balaclava, but they're sold out on Evike
>>1837Yeah think they've been sold out for at least a year or two. Had to buy it from a UK shop.The guy who manufactured them had a shop called seriouslytactical but it is gone now.
>>1806The Titan IS a mosfet with some extra wazoos on top, so you’re set then lol.>spent way too much on a recshockYou should see mine lol
>>1864fugg so they're likely discontinued then.
>>1872I really wanted a NGRS spectre just because it's a ton cheaper than the gate titan, but they're out of production and out of stock everywhere.How do you like the recoil? I still can't decide if I want to let it go or not. I'd like to take it to a game and see, but then I couldn't sell it as new
>>1884It’s meh, just a small jolt and that’s about it. Now that the mws aftermarket have caught up recoil shocks are slowly becoming another pointless and expensive novelty gun.Bought the base gun for 250$ shipped tho so no complaint.
>>1876Time to get crafty with a strip of mesh, pliers and electrical tape.
>>1902>Now that the mws aftermarket have caughtWell those are gas guns, right? That's a whole different class.
>>1343>>1449it was my first time, ive learned my lessons
>>1912I actually have my old mesh mask I don't use anymore, just need to find a way to add a strap so it can be secured around my head
>>1966My balaclava and neck gaiters keep it against my mouth without any problems. Never used anything to hold it in place.
>>1984I see, time to go to my nearest store with electrical tape available
>>1984show bobs and vageen
>>288No, he's entirely serious, instead of 6mm BBs, they use .22 Long Rifle, as it's known to not be harmful short of being shot in the eye. The rules are strict about it, but sometimes someone gets their brains scrambled because someone didn't aim for the arms, legs, or torso.
>>1933Gas yes, but the end purpose between them are rather similar imo.The way I see it, the recoil shocks were marui’s attempt back in the late 2000s to add “recoil” to an electric rifle and update their (by then 15+ yrs old) aeg gearbox. But it’s also because the technology for a gas blowback system that wont crap out in winter with duster gas havent been realized yet, not until their rival Western Arms made the gbbr m4 that got cloned to hell and back since 2008. It took until the mid 2010s when marui finally made the MWS system that could beat WAs and capable of running in near zero temps, at least with the right condition.For the japanese scene (mostly chairsofters), simulated gun handling under restricted law requirements is a legit criteria which explains parts such as “heavyweight” slide, recoil kits, and heavy recoil weights for both the mws and recoil shock guns. This also is my guess as to why marui even bothered with the recshock in the first place lol.
>>2039Holy shit. Why can't I find anything about this on google?
>>1450Neat. I'll wait for the Chinese clone though.
I've had a real hard on for the Poseidon AEGs lately. The two I've been using have been absolute rockstars in terms of performance and reliability. I've even given away my KWA to my nephew because I ended up liking them so much. Easily the best bargain on Evike
>>2039>using . 22 LR in a gameWho'd ever believe this stupidity?>>2053Oh
>>2320Simunition is a real thing that exists, but I'm 99% sure its military and LE only. I've used it 4 times in training environments and that shit is scary as fuck because its literally just a super fast paintball that has a tendency to defeat the armor that was made to block it and concuss the ever living shit out of dudes who already have a dozen or so under their belt. https://utmworldwide.com/
>>2039Honesty, .22 is too dangerous. They should have used 9mm. That is much more safe.
>>2401This certainly solves the cheaters problem, though.
>>1437Hot AK5c you got there
>>2486For damn sure, my man. You know when someone's been hit because they're on the ground yelling "mother fucker!"
>>926He just has never exercised for more than 2 minutes (the time to walk from his chair to the fridge and back) in his life.
>>2624Still wouldn't do it. I still have BBS scars on my forearms from the time I did CQB once.
Very happy that Airsoft has a board where it belongs. Shame I have been unable to play with my Russian loadout due to the Coof...
Would it be technically possible to replace real warfare with regulated extreme airsoft battles?Like, nations engage in thousands-strong teams ,nobody or almost nobody dies,technology and skill and manpower still play an importan role,etc.can warfare be abolished in favour on controlled violence?
Im fascinated by special forces in the military, corrections system,and police/riot squad,however IRL i hate goverments and authority as im unironically an ancap.Would airsoft be the perfect sport for me?Id love to rock the outfit and tech of a clandestine ops/paramilitary officer
>>3292maybe,just do want ever and dont shove your politics on others
>>3292considering that you're a 14 year old boy based on your post, yeah, i think airsoft would be a good sport
>>3292Airsoft is just LARPing with guns so go for it
Pic is my ak-74u. I just mounted a rail to it last weekend. I finally have a red dot on it. The sight is a Pinty compact red dot with 1 inch riser.I bought rail from Evike specifically for the AK74u, but it did not fit. It was supposed to attach to the iron sights, but the airsoft ak74u sights are slightly smaller than the real guns sights. So I ended up drilling holes in a plastic rail I already had, and just attaching that. I used the two holes that the dust cover already had for the iron sights to attach it. It is mounted to the dust cover, so the sight wobbles a little bit. But, not enough that it matters.
>>3377throw some washers on it to help
>>723>>723>>723>>723>A big guy
>>3292Well I for one hope that sad fella cheers up
>>85hell ya/k/ fag hereWhat made airsoft die?
>>85I dunno guys, I don't think airsoft is EXTREME enoughgot any proof to the contrary?
>>3292you have to be 18 to post here
>>3428The rail is tight against the dust cover, but dust cover is not very tight against the lower. That is what causes the problem. I think this is a problem with all ak style rifles and why sights are rarely attached to the dust cover.
>>1450Check out the fucking trigger response.https://youtu.be/_fx_sQMoGh0
Hi /ag/Rate my first gun.Got it for 200 eurodollars, but I haven't bought ANYTHING besides the gun yet, what should I get? Obviously I'm gonna get some glasses + something for the mouth/nose, I'm wondering more about stuff like a red dot, midcap mag since this one is high cap etc.For now we're gonna be playing more outside than anything inside, if that helps for recommendations.
What are my options for empty mag detection other than NGRS or that one shitty KWA platform? Has nobody invented something like paintball eyes that can be modded into anything yet?
>>1158Jigsaw smock/parka is peak terrowave/Euro INS look.
>>3604I can make out barely any of this but it's cozyWhat's the best Japanese review/news airsoft channel?
>>3476>airsoft deadDepends on what you mean by dead. Its no where near its popularity peak, but not dead imo. It has kinda gone back to its 2002~2008 days right before it exploded where you have a core of impression kit guys, bb warriors, and milsim larpers. The more casual playerbase has definitely shrunk but we have way more events then I remember back in the day.>>3482https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_m1dbunEbs>>3618Is that a combat machine? Should have gotten a CYMA ak but what is done is done. As for what to get just pick up a decent battery, charger, some nice BBs (.25g is a good cheap weight), and if you are just playing for fun get another highcap you can throw in your pocket. Dont worry about sights as they are likely to get shot out and most cheaper airsoft guns can barely use them.We should probably make a new newbie guide.

>>3657It's Cybergun (I heard they're kind of just a big reseller so maybe doesn't mean much.) I got offered like a pack of bbs by the vendor, too, I also included the battery and charger in picrel, is there any way to tell if they're good?I'm looking for good protection mainly, I probably don't need extreme (read : angry nigger shooting me in the face with full-auto continuously at point blank) since I'm just gonna play with friends first few times, but obviously not something I'll cheap out on.
>>3685Ah shit, here's the good picture.
>>3685Cybergun typically only rebrands cheap stuff. In all seriousness if you can return it please try. The battery and charger are going to be garbage, get yourself a $20 tenergy battery, and a smart charger which you can typically pick up for about the same price. It looks like the gun uses a nunchuck style.If you can somehow return it, for the price CYMA aks are some of the best you can get your hands on. At least in the US you can grab full metal ones for under $200. They run great stock and last.
>>3695>>3706Seller told me that most people criticized Cybergun because of the build quality or whatnot, but he said something along the lines of >"when you represent 90% of the market, it's inevitable you'll also represent a majority of the breaking guns, people who complain about cybergun usually fail to take that into account"Ha also said that it actually was a solid brand for starting. I actually checked a bunch of reviews before buying this very gun, and most of the reviewers (who bought the gun themselves) agreed it was a good starting gun. Guy's been playing for 30 years or so, small local seller.This one's full metal and AKs are really not my style, is there something else I could get?
>>85>tfw ausfailianwhy live bros?
>>1159based irish player, what field you at
>>3719i go between fingal airsoft,urban assault( formaly simtac) and special ops. I have played since early 2020
>>3711>represent 90% of the marketCybergun is incredibly small in comparison to CYMA, G&G, Krytac, etc. . . and the reason they get crap is just because their guns are cheap. They take a rifle made by another company, slap some trades on it, and then mark it up (echo 1 also did this 90% of their stuff was JG or CYMA). As for what you got when you say "full metal" are both the lower and upper receiver of the gun metal? Do you perhaps have an online add for what you got? If we can figure out the OEM we can give a better estimate of how it will fare. As for solid brand for starting I personally disagree. I think the best thing a starter gun can have is reliability and durability. Nothing is worse then giving a new player a bad taste in their mouth when their brand new gun stops working.
I bought a CYMA AK47 like 8 years ago and it worked fine for a while then it stopped shooting so i took it apart to replace a tiny screw (0.9mm) which I couldn't find anywhere. Now when I shoot it the trigger pulls but won't go back forward unless I push it forward. Did I just fail to put that little spring behind the trigger back in right, or did I put cycler gear (partial gear? i dont know what its called) back in misaligned so it cycles too far when it tries to shoot? Cause sometimes it fails to shoot. But the trigger also stays pulled and I have to slide it back forward myself.Also why the fuck won't anyone buy my JG G36 on craigslist for 80 bucks? All this stuff happened over a year ago I've never played at a field only in my own yard. I'm 26 so I'm not sure if I'm too old to get into it.
>>3714At least you have gelball
NERF guns are extreme??
>>3711So I found what you bought, and if it is indeed the elite line then I feel a lot better about what you got. Only manufactures I can think of that make a full metal M4 in that price range is CYMA and JG so they may be the OEM.
>>3731Not in my state
>>3731>he doesn't know
Noob question. Do AEGs wind the mechanism so that your trigger pull looses the spring immediately, or do they have an obscene lock time? I've only had gas/co2 guns before; the former imitates actual firearms with a cocking and loading slide, and the latter loads with a tube through trigger travel, so both of them go off at the trigger break almost immediately.
this shit is getting banned in canada if Trudeau gets his way
>>3743nerf have a nice place on toy already
>>3757Stock most have to wind the piston back, but there are mosfets which have precock pulling the piston part of the way back for faster trigger response.
>>3757In semi, they start with the spring forward so there's a teeny delay in your shot to pull the plunger back. Full auto generally just revs the motor while the trigger is held, so the plunger rests wherever it happens to be when you let go of the trigger.
>>3727>>3744I'm not sure what you mean when you ask about the lower and upper receiver of the gun, see pic related.And I agree that a first gun should be reliable above all, but all reviews of this very gun seemed to indicate it was great for a starting gun, I meant that also independently of what the seller himself told me.I don't have an online ad, but the instructions flyer inside says that it's distributed by Palco Sports in the USA, and the side of the box had number #180 867 on it, only relevant information I could find.
>>3727Here's an amazon link if that helps, they say the constructor is NFL.https://www.amazon (DOT) fr/NFL-Cybergun-CouleurTan-%C3%A9lectrique-Automatique/dp/B07PBXS5V9
>>3777How long are we talking about here? Can you hit things at range without follow-through, or just spraying at full auto?>>3771Man. How come precocking isn't the default? I'm considering going GBBR mostly for this reason (the other being simulationism: real-cap mags, co2 capsule in the mag, etc.), but I wonder.
>>3778>>3785I don't know any manufacture by NFL, but if it is actually full metal it should actually be a fine starter gun. I was worried because there are some REALLY cheap plastic guns that look like yours and I was worried you got ripped off. I would suggest getting that new battery I talked about and charger. You would be amazed how much a decent battery changes the gun. Depending on how long you will be playing during a day you may need 2. Run a 9.6v NiHM and stay away from lipos until you get more into it.>>3789$$$ for example a Gate mosfet is an extra $100+ to the cost of the gun. You can still build a pretty snappy AEG without precocking. GBBRs are fun but I haven't paid attention to them in a long time. They use to require a lot of work to actually be field able.
>>3789>How long are we talking about here?It's basically instant. Like several milliseconds maybe
>>85>no good MP5SDs around that are competitive in CQB against P* M4 niggers.why even live?
>>3812Here's the other side, if that gives you any more information. The tiny black mark on the hopup wheel (or mosfet? don't know which one it is) is from the guy just putting it there with a sharpie to explain.
Did the guy who invented polar stars play cave story?
>>3839Its the hop up wheel and it actually came with a rotary hop which is pretty nice. Doesn't tell much about the manufacture, but the more you show im actually kinda impressed you got a full metal m4 with rails and a rotary hop for the price.
>>3812That seems like a huge markup for what ought to be a, like, $2 part ($3 in single figure quantities). Are there other components involved in a MOSFET setup, as in, is that just the Airsoft-specific name?I also heard bad things about GBBR reliability, but I've seen people field WE "open bolt" rifles in muddy late fall conditions. I ought to ask around. Surely that stuff hasn't become popular on the backs of willing lemon-buyers.>>3816Human reaction time is like 13 ms (what they use in the olympics to call false starts). Below that it's practically imperceptible. Similar as how people think they blinked in a photograph when they were reacting to the camera shutter sound; that they blink after means their eyes were open in the photo...If it's properly imperceptible, then an AEG would be right up my alley if they had, like, a blowback mechanism. I heard that's available (Joerg's channel showcased one a couple of years back) but I've not seen it marketed.
>>3866>If it's properly imperceptible, then an AEG would be right up my alley if they had, like, a blowback mechanism. I heard that's availableThe main one is the Tokyo Marui Next Gen Recoil Shock platform, but they're pretty expensive and they only shoot like 290 fps with .20g out of the box due to Japanese velocity laws.
>>3866Mosfets are mini computers (some with entire firmware and blutooth capability for programing) that control the electrical flow to the motor and often replace the trigger contacts with a micro switch. As for GBBR there will always be people who want the most realistic thing they can get and nothing tops GBBR. There are blow back and recoil systems for AEGs but all of them come with some tradeoffs. Typically this puts extra strain on the gearbox and also adds additional cost to the build. If you have deep pockets and don't mind an air line you could go for a daytona gun. They are built on GBBR and AEG bodies and use AEG mags.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zh6V083-a8E
>>3850Well, I'm glad, the seller was nice enough to give me the pack of bbs for free with it, he also does small repairs for free (or 15 euros for bigger repairs + price of parts) and he really seemed passionate about what he was talking about (I mean, he talked with me for 3 hours about airsoft despite me telling him plainly I wouldn't buy anything that very day) he was pretty proud of some pretty rare guns he was selling, too, since he was a small seller (a Toyko Marui Famas is one I can remember).I have another question; the seller said that a case was quite important to get for transport (carrying is completely illegal in public anyway), and advised strongly against a bag, mostly because it didn't really offer any protection according to him, what's it like in your experience? I might probably have to use public transports to get to the places I intend to shoot it at, and only very rarely use my car. If I get a bag, any recommendation? If I get a case, should I make my own or are there some good online sellers?Pic of underside, too.
>>3757You're gonna notice trigger delay on an AEG over a GBB, especially if you've got a low output battery in there, but it's possible to have a lightning fast response time with a proper gearbox setup. A well build dual sector build will go pretty damn fast.
>>3879>As for GBBR there will always be people who want the most realistic thing they can get and nothing tops GBBR.Thank you, this is the answer I was actually looking for.
>>85I'm glad this thread exists. It's pretty comfy and not as feel good and neutered as r/airsoft
>>3879Trigger control units aren't "mosfets." They have a mosfet in them, but that isn't what lets it do anything it's doing. The mosfet part is just to protect trigger contacts
>>3895I'm glad to see people actually finding it and posting in it. We had a thread on /asp/ but you know how that goes
LEAFS BTFO’D LMAO
Field Ref here, tell me about your field? How long are games, are they themed? What's the most fun to play for you?
>>3903I never posted/lurked on /asp/, but a few months back I was looking to make an airsoft thread to get started and found that /asp/ would be the place, but as soon as I made the thread, I got the response along the lines of >Didn't we boot you pew-pew fags out of here?With some wrestling gif, and then the thread died.Did the wrestling fans just absolutely make it impossible to have any sort of non-wrestling discussion on /asp/?
>>3891If you are going down the gbbr route look at ghk. Good quality and price. >>3899You are correct, I am old in airsoft years and just say mosfet to refer to anything more advanced then trigger contacts. Should stop doing that.
>>3913I tried making airsoft threads a few months ago and they fucking banned me for it, lolI actually went on the IRC and asked about it and they reversed it for me, I gave up trying to make them thereA couple weeks ago someone tried again and it managed to stay but barely anyone posted in it, it was just the same sperg bumping way too often
>>3895Back when r/airsoft was in it's infancy it was actually pretty nice and had a small but tight knit community. Now it's just a bunch of people posting guns based off of videogames/anime, forced action shots with instagram filters, people farming karma with their first guns/loadout, and airsoft bunnies. >>3913Essentially yeah. You would be lucky if an airsoft related thread lasted a day on there. It's like how biz is mainly focused on crypto. I tried to make a post about if anyone on there has experience working at a couple consulting firms and the thread didn't receive a single reply.
>>3913>>3922The wrasslefag invasion absolutely destroyed /asp/. It sped up the board past what most threads could survive and made generals that much harder to find. Most of the larger generals tried to stick around, but out of all of them, only the Skate thread made it all the way to the end, and even they had tough weeks. Now those faggots have their containment hole and we have nu/asp/, which is basically ESPN8 The Ocho of 4chan. I love it.
>>85hey frens. new to airsoft, looking for a battery and charger setup. this is the recommended one from the manufacturer>Li-Po, 1400 mAh/11.1 V. Battery consists of three partswhich I assume means it's one of those 3 flat panel types. I also don't know what a good charger would be.
>>3956Titan's stuff is really good
>>3965Titan has a 3000 mAh/11.1 V stick. am I g2g if I get one that has 3x the recommended performance?
>>3967also, my AEG has both types of adapter. should I get the tamiya or deans?
>>3967Wait for a few more responses to confirm, but I'm pretty sure the voltage is all that matters here. I believe the mAh is just capacity>>3973Deans is objectively better
>>3956Yes it would be the 3 flat panel type. What manufacturer is recommending 11.1v for a stock gun though? As for batteries you have volts, milliamp hours, and then there is discharge rate C. The higher the discharge rate the more power supplied to the motor but the shorter time it will last.
>>4002NPO VSS, specifically the 20th series. is 11.1 pissin' hot for a stock gun or on the weaker side? from what I understand, it's a pretty beefy little AEG, internally
>>4006Pissing hot. Pretty sure NPO use LCT internals so you should be fine, but a 7.4 is fine in most cases. Odd you're willing to drop $700 on a gun but don't know much about batteries lol.
>>3940straight facts about r/airsoft
>>4006Post pics, never actually seen one in person. As for 11.1 some guns can and some can't handle them stock. I am simply a little weary from the "lipo ready" days. On the other hand there are guys pushing 14.8v lipos into guns now.
>>4010I got it for $550 brand new from a manufacturer blem on the stock. the VSS is my favorite gun and I figured I'd go all in and get an autistically accurate replica and figure everything else out as I go>>4014here you go
>>4018>$550Fucking lucky bastard
>>4019yeah, but the fucking came cracked and the magazine looks like it had a dremel pass over it. I got it from RushB, but I want to see if they're going to make it right before recommending them. also, my nail cracked putting this bitch together, so pls no bully
>>4025it very well could have been from the Grug the UPS barbarian, but god damn, I expected more than this
>>4025>NPO plasticYou did this to yourself. NPO isn't particularly MORE accurate compared to LCT and King Arms either, just a little different. $550 is still a lot from a starter gun to not know battery basics. There's lots of sites that give you battery run-downs. Let me know what connector type you have, and I can give you a list from Hobby King, smart charger included.
>>3835Classic Army still has theirs. You can either try buying directly from CA or import from Octagon. They still have SD6s in stock. After that, it's just upgrading the gearbox. It's a standard Version 2, so doing some high torque motor/dsg/mosfet memes, or even just dropping in an HPA unit yourself would do fine.
>>4035NPO is more accurate. the stock is the correct color and the dust cover is much closer to the real version. the LCT one is like 8% larger overall than the real one. it looks goofy when compared side by side. And at some point down the line if I can ever track down a real VAL or VSS handguard, the NPO will fit it. NPO also takes real optics better than LCT on account of it's much smaller dust cover. I think I want to do a titan battery. I don't mind shelling a bit more for better quality. I'm already in this deep, no point in skimping now.
>>4050yummy dippin dots
>>4050i miss the days where i would browse the acadamy airsoft/paintball isle and constantly dream about buying picrel
>>4056I remember pretending to be solid snake with this and sneaking around in my neighborhood. God please take me back
>>4057i had a friend that had picrel and i was so jealous of him until i got a jg m4 s-system off of airsoftmegastore or (airrattle cant remember) for my birthday
>>4065forgot pic. this was the mecca of academy airsoft guns
>>4065my local flea market had some decent looking but pure chinesium airsoft guns. before I knew a god damn thing about them, I was pretending to be captain price with a little G36 with a silencer and red dot. those were the fucking days
>>4074it's kind of sad that kids these days won't be able to experience playing in the forest near their neighborhood without getting a cop called on them.we used to get old pallets and tires and make bases and objectives on a piece of undeveloped land near my house. if only i knew i was making good memories. i would've enjoyed the moment more.
>>4056I remember wanting this piece of shit back when I didn't know any better
Titan has 40% off 11.1/2600 batteries. do I get two of those instead of one larger one?
>>4088I have literally never run out on a lipo at 1000mah. Yes, 2600 will be fine, and having two is better than having one.
only midcap chads are allowed to reply to this post
>>4095BasedFuck winding hi-caps, fuck rattling
>>4095>There are people who think those maracas are acceptable feeding systemsAbsolutely disgusting.
glad to have this thread and board desusomewhere to get advice without having to suck dick in the reddit discord>>4086my friends and i must have made at least 3 good fieldsone was behind my back yardwe stole a picnic table from the school i lived next toafter i'd do yard chores and rake up piles of leaves and yard waste i'd take them directly to my "field" and build bunkersshit was cashi was so proud of my field
I'm looking to get some .40s for my DMR build. what are some respectable brands?
>>4087I used to have the piece of shit MP5 one. The mag was the battery and the bbs went in through the optic, which kind of acted like a paintball hopper. i did a custom spray paint job on it of rustoleum khaki and sage with old netting and then it broke and i threw it away. kind if wish i kept it as a wall hanger for pure nostalgia.
>>4156Was it one of those little chibi plastic mini AEGs?
>>1800i do thisit's not even sewn in or anything, my balaclava holds it wellthis and standalone goggles is the way to go imonever have a bad cheek weld or foggy goggles ever again
>>4160it was picrel. i remember the stock broke on me and i would hold it like a pistol wishing i had another to run it akimbo like in black ops.might search up the local classifieds for one just to meme at my local cqb place
>>4095>That one guy with 4 fucking high caps running around going SHAK SHAK SHAK SHAK SHAK SHAK
>>3706>>3685If you are going get an AK, get one with rails. I regretted not getting rails on my first gun.
>>4176nyet rifle is fine
>>4173nothing like the sound of a 12 year old with a rental combat machine frantically winding up a highcap while they're under fire
>>4181>you will never get an adrenaline high like a 12 year old taking heavy suppressing fire, trying to wind that fucking maraca
>>4181That's a personal reason I dislike about using high caps. Not only that they're loud as maracas when loaded, but it's that gay ass winding that makes me feel like I'm sliding my finger between my ass cheeks
>>85LCT AKM or CYMA AK104Also, got myself a VFC SCAR and MP%, what should I do to it?
>>4199lctimo i’d set your guns up for different fields. mp5 could be your indoor gun, ak could be a short/medium distance guns if your outdoor fields have meds, and the scar could be your longer range field gun pushing 400
>>4215I only go to one field though it's pretty damn good with 92 acers and a mix of engagement distances ranging from extrem to short.Ment so much as keeping them alive and working well for at lest 5+ years.
Are typical airsoft players at fields generally cool dudes, or are they generally larping elitist CoD wannabe fags?What I love about paintball is that it's almost exclusively played by down to earth boomers who are just happy to see anyone playing their dying game, but I want to get into airsoft because it's cheaper to play and less messy
>>4222Usually decent folk, a lot of right-wingers, occasionally you have a closet leftie show up. Depending on where you go? Can get hood rats.
>>4222I'm a cool dude and I only associate with other cool dudes. there are faggots in every hobby that take it way to seriously and airsoft is no exception.
So we finally have a board for airsoft?
>>4025RushB is going to get me a new handguard and magazine free of charge. it's going to take about a month, but it's better than them telling me to go fuck myself. very nice.
Re-posting my question since it wasn't really seen before :Just got into airsoft, some people said that a case was quite important to get for transport (carrying is completely illegal in public anyway), and advised strongly against a bag, mostly because it didn't really offer any protection according to them, what's it like in your experience? I might probably have to use public transports to get to the places I intend to shoot it at, and only very rarely use my car. If I get a bag, any recommendation? If I get a case, should I make my own or are there some good online sellers?
>>4241US or somewhere else?
>>4223Will they lynch me if they find out I like cock
>>4245>gays playing airsoftin other news, water is wet. you'll be fine as long as you don't play in a fucking fursuit or something
>>4245No? Don't make it your personality and you probably won't get overshot.
>>4241My buddy has a guitar case with backpack straps that he uses when he's transporting real guns in public. Maybe something like that could help you if you absolutely must use public to go to an event.
>>4245Just don't try making airsoft about gays or push politics at all in it. Most people playing just wanna shoot each other with BB's then get a good meal and go home. IT's an escape like hobbies used to be.
>>4241if you're american, go to your local gun store and pick up a hard gun case for like $30. I imagine you're not if you are going to be using public transport, so in that case, a guitar case with custom foam cut outs or even a milsurp rucksack can work
>>4242Belgium>>4260>>4266Isn't a guitar case kinda big and annoying to get the foam cut into? My gun is rather small (60cm by 30 by 6 more or less).
>>4241I've been using a large backpack for smaller events and gun bags for big events where I drive myself. I wrap the guns up in jackets/pants and haven't had any damage occure.
>>4272then consider getting a tactical backpack or something if it's that small
>>4241I should also say it depends on what kind of gun you have. Unless you're buying complete trash most airsoft guns aren't delicate flowers so getting a padded soft case could work just as easily. Just don't fling it around like a chimp and you'll be fine.Just go browse your local shops or online for a small carry case. You could probably get a nice all in one for your mags/loader/battery.
>>4263>>4259What if I have this on my M4https://offcolordecals.com/?product=uwu-owo-ar-15-dust-cover

>>4140Go back fag
>Why yes. I do use my magazine as a grip. How could you tell?
>>4751it depends on the gun i guess
>>3760Someone needs to ban Trudeau.
>>4781i know the man who wears black face wants to ban a sport with asian origins
>>3913Wrestling almost completely absorbed /asp/. I understand why they gave them their own board, but I don't understand why /asp/ had to be replaced with /xs/, I think /asp/ was a much more widely encompassing name, because not all alternative sports belong on /sp/, and not all alternative sports are extreme.
What's a speedsofter?
>>4790It's one of those things that reload your midcaps and pistol mags.
>>4790speedsoft is fast pased cqb , normally in doors. think of it a the polar oppsite to milsiminstead of immersion its min maxed like paintball
>>4793thats a speed loader
>>4790High speed low drag players
>>4199Imo it depends. LCT is just better, but if you are not going to use it that much CYMA with a ZCI tbb and a new bucking is around $100 cheaper. I plan on attending one of the milsim west events soon and even though I already have a lct 74mn I'm thinking about picking up a CYMA to abuse.
>>117>my team began playing again three weeks ago>plan a second game last week, ends up getting canceled because of some weather alert>plan another game this weekend, retarded covid restrictions are back in place>I was even planning getting some proper flash mags and a slingWhat's the fucking point anymore?
>>4821>and a slingyou don't have a sling?
>>4832I do, but I want to switch to a two point one for my Block II to better redistribute the weight when carrying it. I can leave the one point sling for my older rifle, now acting as a backup
>>4843do you have QD points on it? a magpul 1/2 point sling is pretty fucking nice
This is your daily reminder.It is easier to legally acquire a real AR15 than it is to legally acquire an airsoft gun in Australia. An AR is Cat D (possible to get) An airsoft is Car R (impossible to get) Never give them an inch. Because they'll take a mile
>>4849I weep for you aussie bro. molon pepe

>>4856I'm a [spoiler]yuro[/spoiler], good luck finding a reseller here
>>4860maybe try looking at a gun store. I know yuros are kind of gimped but surely you have one you can check out and see if they have some slings
>>4864Already tried that but I got no luck so far, plus some stores sell it at like 40-50 euros, and I prefer to save some of that money for magsSpeaking of which, are Lonex flash mags good? Do they work well on VFC, G&G and Specnas?

>>1154>>1222please tell me you are underage and not actually a "fully grown" man looking like thatalso your gear looks like something from a socialist queer revolutionist reddit board or whatever

>>1410We had those here before. They were called avatarfags.
>>4222Most are good in the milsim and speedsofting aspect, some are bad. A bad milsim player generally attributes:>Berating other people's gear because they're not using expensive military grade shit like Crye Precision or NVGs>show off real steel parts on their guns to act as a flex on other players for using chink clones>Cry when they get overshot or shot within "bang-bang" range despite acting military tough guy>larp so hard to the point of bringing actual MREs to fields, want people to address them by a high military rank like they're part of Seal Team 6, trying to copy military tactics they see in videos, games, shout "COVER ME RELOADING!" on top of their lungs, etc.>Demand respect from others like they deserve a medal of honor for playing with toy guns and dress upwhile a bad speedsofter generally attribute:>Tryharding as all fuck in casual games>Never calling their hits because they're adrenaline pumping ADHD junkies>Get upset when other people don't call hits when they probably didn't feel it, their guns wasn't actually reaching far, or the person kept taking cover as soon he/she was receiving fire>Overshoot the shit out of people then get mad when they get overshot accidentally which results for them going full auto with their Polarstars/DSG>Change the PSI on their tanks all the way up after chrono as they enter the game >Blast obnoxious mumble rap on their bluetooth speaker>Typical wannabe literally-who e-celeb douche on jewtube who will accuse anyone of cheating and upload a video with EVERY shot being a hitmarker effect because that's valid proof their guns are hitting a player and not calling itNot everyone in the airsoft community is like this though but there are bad apples>>4263This is why I got back into playing airsoft. It's the only hobby I can enjoy that isn't pozzed as all fuck with forced politics
>>5267>larp so hard to the point of bringing actual MREs to fields, want people to address them by a high military rank like they're part of Seal Team 6, trying to copy military tactics they see in videos, games, shout "COVER ME RELOADING!" on top of their lungs, etc.Do people actually fucking do this
>>3940The first half of this comment is the biggest of facts. The community back home used to be extremely tight. As time went on, more and more of the milsim types came around and it started a rift. They only wanted to beat up on the little kids and the weekend warriors, and it slowly started to kinda become a bit less of what it used to be. The YouTube airsoters did more harm than good too in my opinion. Sure they brought in more younger players, but they mostly brought in the video game types. Not so much people that wanted to play airsoft for what it is.I used to work for an airsoft field / shop. When the sandy hook shooting happend, i noticed a huge change in the community. The again, this was in a liberal state as it is, and the state where the shooting took place, so your milage may vary.
>>4222Its what you make it. If you surround yourself with people that take it for what it is, and play fair, you'll have a ball. Dont be one of the milsim faggots that treat this shit like its a blood sport of life and death, and don't be a speedsoft fuck that overshoot for views and never calls hits.Be the "weekend warrior" and you'll have a lot of fun.
>>5270Yes. I even knew people that use their calsigns outside of airosft, in public.>having a callsign in the first place
>>5270MREs are cool if you can put up with them. For some people (particularly in countries with conscription) milsim is half pew-pew, half camping.The screaming militarism and fake honours and shit, that's just silly. I mean, surely they'd be happy among their own sort, right? But when today's rando game is made out of teenagers and so forth, it's not the way to go.
>>5270here's an example of a milsim player wanting his friend to address him as a commanding officer at the very beginning of this video https://youtu.be/_kGW9XPtSr4
>>5283Yeah like, I just wanna play airsoftI don't want it to "be" anything
>>5296Then do just that I've always just been a weekend warrior. Get a chest rig to hold mags, extra bbs, and a few other misc. Items, get a half way decent gun, battery, and charger, and you'll be set. Do you have a setup yet?
>>5303I'm the guy who has the new NGRS and is maybe gonna sell it to mod a gifted Echo1 SCAR-L insteadI have everything but a chest rig so far
>>5287Dude. My job is being a gravedigger. Stop being so anal about it.
>>5314I thinks he's referring to people that take it to the point where their airsoft persona bleeds into their daily social life.
>>5303Whats a weekend warrior?
Newfag memed into buying an ics by airsoft forum shills.This has to stop.
>>5352the middle ground between 133t sp33dsoft and i served 5 milsim tours
>>5352I mostly hear it in paintball, but it basically just means "average dude who doesn't take the game too seriously and just wants to play it for fun without being a fag"
>>5358But ICS is pretty good
So how do all of you avoid looking or acting like a cringe retard when you play? Do you know or have any stories of people at your field that sperg out?
>>5352A weekend warrior is just a person that enjoys airsoft for the game. Its akin to going to the bar on a Saturday night to have a few drinks, but aren't someone who is a drunk, or an alcohol snob. They just go to de stress, have a little fun, and get back to the grind on Monday.
>>5235I hear their newer gens for VFC GBBRs are decent enough
>>5387>how do you avoid acting like a cringe retard Easy >i dont dress like I'm a navy seal cosplay faggot>i dont talk with a bad Slavic accent and shout the 15 year old s.t.a.l.k.e.r meme phrases. >if I see a little kid or a new person struggling with their rental or gun, I help them.>i dont belittle players that don't know as much as me.
>>5387I try to keep my pop culture patches very subtle and avoid shit like meme patches like Wojak or Pepe and borderline or explicit R-18 patches of hentai girls or w/e. I don't need to tell every I'm a coomer who browses 4chan or Leddit while larping as an oper8er.
>>5400Someone at my local field uses Hentai Patches, Mag assist panties, and is a speedsofter. Kids were in the field that day too
>>5387>dont be obese or skelly>wear stuff that fits>don't belittle other peoples kits especially if you have put a lot of effort into yours>don't be a sperg shouting russian or seal memes>be courteous to rentals and newbies >help out those who need it without being overbearing or a know it all prick>overall display the type of play and action you we all want. Call your hits, give others the benefit of the doubt, and remember to triple tap to keep the honest people honest
>>5306trust me, keep the ngrs, especially if it’s a scari regret selling my scar-l. maybe one day i’ll save up for a scar-h in fde and get work done on it.
>>5425Someone at my local field has all of that (sans speedsoft), and brings his wife and teenage daughter to play who have been in the community for years as well. He's beloved by the community and runs the best local ops with all the best props. Maybe if you weren't such a faggot, you could be confident in yourself too and wear hentai patches to games without being a creep about it.
Hey guys I'm a navy seal and honestly you disgust me I went down to my local airsoft arena today and I totally owned all the dumb kids there shooting these little peashooters is childsplay for a real man
>>5441Sounds like a meme family. Would not associate with.
>>5387Cringe is relative. As long as you don't take yourself too seriously and play the game in good faith with good sportsmanship (giving the benefit of the doubt, calling hits even when you're not sure, being considerate when you shoot and do bang-kills when necessary, not getting heated when things don't go your way or you think someone's being an unsportsmanlike shit), you'll be fine. Hell, you could show up in a full fursuit and a meme kit spouting cringe memes and people will still like you as long as you're there to have fun and be a good sport. This isn't a sport for normalfags, so you don't have to worry about the normalfags judging you.
>>5387Don't be 811.
>>5435>trust me, keep the ngrs, especially if it’s a scarIt's the M4 socom, the classic-looking one with the no rail handguard.I'm really not sure, the recoil is neat but I have no frame of reference so I don't really know how much it would matter to me. I love the empty mag detection, but I think cycle completion would mean more to me and if I just mod the echo1 I could get a gate titan and all sorts of other goodies and still pocket several hundred once all is said and done.I'd also need to put some parts into the NGRS to get the velocity where I want it, at least a slightly stronger spring and a new spring guide.
>>5441>"just be yourself">"wear hentai patches you faggot"Well if that isn't the pot calling the kettle a nigger, I don't know what is.
>>5441Like I don't mind if someone uses actual anime or vidya patches (hell, I use a patch that displays my waifu from a gacha game) as long as there's no ass or titties showing, then I won't deem it as cringe since there's typically kids playing. I'm fine with talking about that stuff if someone there shares the same interest without constantly being "all in your face" about it.
>>5449Your loss, bro. Their events have been some of the least salty I've ever been to, regularly pull hundreds, and they're really chill, wholesome folks to be around. >>5466There's a BTC Spectre for the NGRS. Give it time for them to come out with the mk.3 and you'll get that cycle completion in no time.
>>5466like the other anon said, get the spectre for the ngrs. i've seen people rear wire it when they get the spectre if that's you're thing or you could run a handguard that can hold a lipo. the upgrades weren't that hard back when i upgraded my scar and now parts are a lot more easier to find. pretty sure evike carries prommy and laylax parts.
>>5466Pls don't buy titan, Gate is jewing the shit out of it. Get a BTC for the NGRS or a perun for the echo1
>>5483>There's a BTC Spectre for the NGRS. Give it time for them to come out with the mk.3 and you'll get that cycle completion in no time.Presumably those are easier to pick up these days as there are alternatives? I got mine a few years ago and I think it was the only option for an NGRS at the time so it was an absolute bitch to get hold of.
>>5287It's fine, assuming you fly. Half the guys iIplay with are current or former hog, hornet, harrier, blackhawk, kiowa or mudhen drivers. Hell, our wives refer to us by them more often than not
>>5483>>5491Are Spectres actually happening for NGRS again? They 2.0s have been out of stock forever and the 3.0 said it was coming out ages ago. That's certainly an option though, it's way cheaper than the gate titan and I need absolutely none of the bells and whistles it has.>>5496>or a perun for the echo1Looks great, I'll go for this is I end up using the SCAR. Much cheaper.For any NGRS owners out there, what do you think of it? Does the recoil and empty mag detection really add to the game for you versus a typical AEG?
I think "full metal" doesnt mean much, the metal is probably the shittiest pot metal on most cheaper guns. Until you get an LCT or Real Sword a full metal gun is just a marketing term. just my $0.02
>>5568It largely depends on manufacture. A full metal G&P M4 is preferable to an all plastic G&G or a full metal JG M4, but it's also true that a full metal JG m4 is still preferable to a plastic JG M4. It's just relative to the manufacture.
>>5568You're pretty much right. Full metal usually means it's some shitty zinc alloy or pressed metal.
Congrats guys, we made it to bump limit on our new board. If you remember the old /asp/ courtesy, don't forget to wait until at least page 8 before making a new one.
>>5588>>5568isnt the reason they use shit metal is so they cant be converted easly
>>5562it honestly does. the recoil is noticeable but not on gbb level, the moving mock bolt is pretty neat, and the empty mag detection is great. really adds an extra sense of realism and is a headturner at the fields. performance is decent out of the box for cqb and "mout" fields and it can stretch out to longer if you dial in the hop up well. my biggest airsoft regret is selling my tm scar-l, followed by selling my real sword type 97b.
>>5568It depends but for some models even a chinesium receiver is better then poly like AR models. Even a good Poly AR will have barrel wobble due to the upper receiver flexing. Then you have CYMA AKs which are stamped steel and can be found for way less then a full metal M4. Oddly enough imo it is much easier to get a nice quality AK body then it is a M4 due to the manufacturing process. CYMA, CA, LCT, E&L, Real Sword all do stamped steel.
>>5562>>5595also, iirc from my past research when looking for my tm scar/best airsoft scar, the echo 1 body isn't that good and doesn't have real trades. this was like 4 years ago so things could've changed but when i was picking a scar i was deciding between vfc and tm. pretty sure the we tech aeg wasnt out yet
I'd get back playing airsoft but i fucking hate larpers and gopro kiddies uploading my face on youtube.
>>5617Just wear a balaclava/face mask with tinted goggles
>>5594No dumbass. Its to make them cheaper to produce. Only retards like Australians think that you can turn an airsoft gun into a full auto assault weapon.
>>5270Welcome to airsoft
>>5256If my taxes would guarantee more ZOGbot deaths, I'd glady pay 4x more.
>>5685Don't cut yourself with all that edge, now. Funny how you play dress up to replicate the thing you claim to hate so much. You're welcome for my service.
>>5594You realize even the dimensions of the receivers are totally different, right?
>>5718im irish, never held a real ar.only own ww2 airsoft guns
Why am I so fucking shit at airsoft? The past 4 games I played I didn't get a single kill, and I ended up sticking my ass out of cover when I was trying to fix an issue with my rifle.
>>5730Being American, and having real ar15's and airsoft ones, the uppers and lowers dont even come close to meshing up.
>>5744Gotta play more, think about what you are exposing and where everyone else is. Work with others instead of trying to go off on your own if you are doing that. Try and see what the better players are doing. Also remember its just a hobby, having fun is more important then anything.
>>5748I do worse than some people who go for their first time and use rentals. I do try to work with others, and it works to win games, but I still don't get any kills. Even worse is that I can't even see what the better players are doing since the field is a swamp. Even worse is that I know I can aim and shoot well with actual guns, but it goes out the window whenever it goes to plastic. I really wan to have fun with it, but I just can't get over the fact that I never win no matter how hard I try or how much money I put into it.
>>5754If you're playing to win, you're never going to have a good time.
>>5754Don't play to win, play to have fun. Think of strategies and consider your positioning, movement, and range. Actually aiming and shooting is a very small part of the larger sport. Strategy, teamwork, movement, and positioning are all far more important. You don't want to necessarily just aim and shoot well, you want to put yourself in a position where even if you're shit at aiming and shooting, you'll still get hits.
>>5763Fair point. I might as well bite the bullet and tap into speedsoft. Then again, my friends constantly reminding me that I'm bad kind of makes it hard to focus on not trying to win. I just wanna shoot things.
>>5602Helps that stamping is cheap as shit to make in mass, just got to bite the pillow on the tooling and die costs.
>>5778>has trouble with woods play>thinks speedsoft is easierI think I know your problem, you probably move far too fast and far too aggressively. Do you ever try and set up a semi defensive position to hit the other aggressive retards in woods play?
>>5778Whats the field you play at look like? The terrain and cover dictates how you should play.
>>5790Sometimes. Whenever I do that, it usually results in getting into a prolonged shootout with some other guy in position for a stupidly long amount of time as we take pot shots on the other's position.
>>5799It's like a woods with patches of swamp surrounding it. The field is about the size of a football field, and uses torn up fences pieces of plywood as cover, with one or two forts/bridges on either side. As for the fauna, I play in Florida.
>>5802Wait are you playing at wasteland?
>>5805No, I play at X-Plex.
>>5808Based on what I see, It looks like playing a little more aggressively might be a good thing. Bounding, and covering fire would be very advantageous. Run as a small highly mobile group of 3 or 4 people to accomplish this.
>>5808looks like a bunch of rec fields which are 1/2 way to speedsoft already. IDK man, all I know is I just played and it kinda came together eventually. With that type of field like >>5823 said aggression might actually help.
>>5823>>5825Gotcha. Going to try this next time I go out since I always go with frens. Thanks for the tips bros!
>>5698I just like shooting at people and running around.You like committing war crimes for Jewish interest.
>>5992You can run around with a laser tag gun without pretending to be something your not. :) Like I said. Keep paying your taxes so I get a bunch of benefits, money for school, and a steady check 2x a month. Keep up the good work and keep pretending to be a navy seal and live out your fantasy.
>>6109>muh benefits Well at least you aren't one of those faggots who pretends to be doing it to "serve their country."That said, everyone has a price it seems. Personally, I wouldn't want to be a zionist slave gunning down innocents for chump change, but I guess some people have some pretty low standards.
>>6121Thats all the army has ever been to me. A meal ticket. As far as the gunning down innocents thing goes, I never met anyone who just says "well fuck these people ima just take my rifle and hose people today!" The onse that say shit like that often and openly dont stick around long. That scene in American sniper (didn't like the movie) with the kid and the rpg is pretty accurate to how a lot of "innocents" get shot. People not listening to instructions is another.
>>6137the military is literally nothing more than a crutch for poor kids.>t. 6 year grunt
>>6164The exact reason I joined. Got tired of dead end jobs, hated my family, was tired of always being broke. Life is pretty cash now. Granted, its a lot of bs to put up with at times; but I'm infinitely better off.
I don't want to wait for my shit to come in anymore frens. how do you deal with long shipping times?
>>6182Watch videos about your purchase on YouTube.
>>6187>watch videos about a battery and PSO 1 scopeboy howdy am I in for a treat
>>6182I know this feel. I ordered a Rothco battle belt 3 weeks ago off of Amazon because Condor belts are out of stock everywhere thanks to chink flu ceasing production temporarily and boogaloo hyping /pol/tard schizos buying them out of stock everywhere.
>>6182Idk, mope that i'll never get a real or airsoft clone of my t-doll raifu.
>>6209There's a deep satisfaction that has washed over me since I got an airsoft version of my favorite gun, even though it'll be years until the US made version is done
>>6215US made real version*
>>6215I still wait for an MDR AEG/GBBR model for airsoft even though she isn't my raifu
>>6217Meant to reply to this anon>>6209
>>6218you better not have meant to reply to my post with anime, fuccboi
>>6219What are u gonna do about it???
>>6237seethe and wish I could overshoot you in the exposed skin
>person seething over the literal personification of shitposting in gfl.Absolutely priceless lol.
>>5267>show off real steel parts on their guns to act as a flex on other players for using chink clonesI did this oncestill makes me feel like a tool every time I remember itGod I was cringy when I had that kitNow I just stuff my AEGs full of expensive parts that underperform and feel like an idiot when they won't work at all
