Airsoft guns are all the rage these days. Real weapons are dangerous and usually illegal, but those who fascination with them can find solace. Soft air guns, or airsoft guns, are firearms that eject plastic bb's at the force of an air powered chamber, a spring chamber, or gas.
The main objective of any soft air gun play is to get other opponents 'out' or tag them by shooting at and hitting them with a bb. For this reason, accurate and reliable airsoft guns are greatought after. With a good set of soft air guns and plenty of energy, there are a whole host of excitement-packed game activities that a person can get involved in.
King of the Hill
Remember playing King of the Hill when you were a kid? If you can not really remember, it is that game where the guy stands at the top of the hill with others all around and you have to fight others to get to the top of the hill? That would be the game. Some versions of this game were organized and playful, whereas others were downright crazy and maybe even a little bit violent.
King of the Hill with airsoft guns can be a lot of fun. The game consoles of two teams pitted at one another. There are two ways that it can be played.
Basic king of the hill is just like it was with kids, except you are using airsoft guns this time and not fists and feet to get to the top. Any player who is 'knife-killed' (tapped or slapped) or shot at and hit with an airsoft pellet is out of the game. In many instances, the rules may differ slightly.
In the more detailed, organized version of this game special airsoft simulation props and equipment can be used. Soft air grenades, bunkers, trenches and other such items can all be utilized in gaining an advantage over the other team. This is usually a game played with more players over a longer period of time, where the simple version can often be played in less than an hour.
Another great airsoft game that is very popular with players is Injured Soldier, also called Injured General. This is a game that is best played with 15 to 20 people or more. The "soldier," (a punching bag, bale of hay or similar object-maybe even a life-sized, weighted dummy) is placed in a field somewhere.
The idea behind the game is for the teams to try and secure the injured soldier and drag him to their base. The team that does that first is the winner. Players have to work as a team and cover each other. This game does not last long without a lot of players involved.
Hidden stash is another popular game for airsoft that is best played with a lot of people. Again, this game is played with two or more teams. In this game, a stash of automatic soft air guns are hidden in a large field or wooded area. They can be hidden in a suitcase, a hole, a tree trunk, behind a rock-where they can be hidden.
The idea is to engage in CQC, close quarter combat, to shoot one another and get at the stash. The first team to find the stash has an advantage over the team with the pistols. The 'losing' team is forced to pull out all the stops when it comes to strategy if they want to have a chance at winning.
Military simulations are popular ways of engaging in fun, realistic air gun play. Whatever you are interested in the Civil War, the American Revolution or Vietnam, those battles can be simulated with the right airsoft weapons. Remember, soft air weapons even come in the form of grenades and launchers, so the possibilities really are endless.
The idea behind good military simulations is to be as close to the actual historical account as possible when doing battle simulations. If just simulating military war play, the sky is the limit!
Keep in mind that some of the more experienced airsoft players may make use of modifiers in their games. These are special allowances or powers that can be used during play. For example, being able to raise the dead, invincibility, healing the wounded-these are all modifiers that may be used in games, but under specific circumstances. Players modify games all the time. Be aware of modifiers for each game.
If you do not know of something in particular in your community, get some friends together and start an airsoft movement .
Airsoft play is so much fun when involved in well-organized games. These are just a few of the many games played with soft air guns around the world. If you do not like the sound of these airsoft game ideas, you can definitely make up some of your own!
