I suppose Milsim could also encompass the airsoft margin of the market as well.

To me MilSim is the camo woodsball with military style markers.

It is just a paintball gun where you can put upgrades that don't do anything but make it look like a real gun

Please read the previous posts before answering with the same things

Some people may think of guns that look like real guns, or have add ons, or even just ones that are not brightly coloured when milsim is mentioned. This does not make it right

Mil sim is military simulation
A gun with extras added on with no true function does not make it milsim

As mentioned above airsoft could be milsim. But how come airsoft is quoted as could be when airsofters use replicas but some say a Tippmann is milsim, which may look a bit like a real gun

Whatever it may have originally meant, it no longer means that.

Now a milsim gun is a paintball gun that looks similar to a real gun regardless of whether it uses a hopper and a tank or a magazine and a 12g.

and the more we move into "accurate replicas" the more likely we will run into this:


and paintball will be labeled as a terrorist or school shooters training practice as opposed to a competitive sport full of responsible, law abiding adults who play for the fun, not for the violence.
AHAHAHHHHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH there is no way in hell that an airsoft gun has the structural integrity to fire a bullet!

No - Again, mil sim is military simulation, not woodsball, not scenario (unless it is a mil sim scenario), not guns that look a bit like real guns

Some people do think if those when milsim is used
Here many people just think of a stag do or birthday party in the woods when paintball is mentioned. That does not mean paintball is stag dos and birthday parties

Milsim used to imply something like a scenario game with an emphasis on real tactics and strategies, almost like reenactments. As the other posts in this topic have revealed however is that the original meaning has been slightly warped.

People call "woodsball guns" milsim if they make some attempt to look realistic but simply being in possession of an A-5 with 30 pounds of useless cosmetic crap bolted onto it doesn't mean you are milsimming.

If you take that same gun and then start playing while trying to emulate actual military tactics, then you are milsimming.

^ well said, go with that one

Although i'd add that true milsimmers would give you the boot if you showed up with a red dm12 and tried to play with them...
