paintball, the rampant amount of cheating in airsoft is awful. Cheating still happens in paintball, but it's much easier to catch in paintball.

I enjoy paintball because there's something to seeing the paint hit someone, especially when you rush a corner and cover them head to toe in paint.

This is why I play indoor with a tracer unit. You can watch them bounce off of them and the place I go to the refs are on top of catching people not calling their hits.

Depends on the crowd! Airsoft cheating is legendary though, so paintball definitely has that going.

I dont need to live a video game, so paintball. Too many g.i. Joe wannabes with ZERO discipline in airsoft. 3k in tacticool accessories dressed like an extra from tears of the sun. We get it, you watched john wick and play alot of cod...
If i wanna shoot real guns i open my safe and go to the range, if i wanna run drills, i
sign up for a class, and if i wanna shoot up folks in the woods, i play paintball.
Paintball is a sport, airsoft is pretend, and im too old for make believe.

Airsoft hurt the market due to being cheaper to play and the whole COD movement. Kids wanted to play mil sims. Unfortunately with airsoft it brings out a lot of cheaters as well. Paintball is dying a slow slow death due to cost. I love playing but the cost will deter new players. Its been going on for years and years.

I recently tried playing airsoft due to my field being mostly parties and no one to play paintball with some days (or groups refusing to play with me). We have a great airsoft turnout there every week so I decided to give it a try.

Someone had told me it was going to be mostly military wannabes and cos players. I can definitely see that. I played like I would with paintball and was aggressive at attacking. I noticed that most of the players around me were playing their roles for the game (capture the flag or defusing a bomb type game) and not pushing much. I was clearing a path and sending them back to respawn.

I think that was my issue with it. There's not much challenging me there to play and the shots getting someone out are disappointing at best. Half the players were trying to clear a building and the other half were playing medics, snipers or whatever they were dressed like or pretending to be. Whereas paintball it is about taking people out, moving up and pushing forward. There's no one typically out there just trying to look like a COD player. You know when you are out and it makes you want to play better. I bought an airsoft gun and will play with them if no one else shows up for paintball. Now that I have the Emek maybe I won't be banned from playing with walkons or parties and won't play airsoft as much.

I also don't like the airsoft guns as much. I know they look real but the winding of the mags sucks. Our field doesn't let you shoot auto except under certain rules. So using semi and having to wind the mags it made the experience less realistic for me. I just wanted to burst at time to clear areas out but that didn't happen. They don't want people using pistols or shotguns getting lit up but I say use what you brought! /rant
