RANT: Gamers playing Airsoft!!

129 posts in this topic

Some younger players annoy me lying about how many kills they got. I ask how many did you hit and they claim they hit 9 people....and there was 16 in the game......this was my mates first time and then some other guy claimed he got 8 kills and another said 5......and i know for sure i got one (tinted goggles in a dark woods ftl.....(i swapped them after that game for mesh) but you do the maths 5+8+9=22?

 

was it a respawn game? also when multiple people are shooting at target it can be hard to say who actually landed the hit.

I'am only 14 and love my fps games.....along with rpgs and mmo's too. I have been down to my site about 6-7 times and the thing that irritates me is the kids going oh wow thats the m4a1 and thats the scar-h and ect. i feel like saying know any more guns? they can only label call of duty known guns. i love my military stuff and just went down to a ww2 show today.

It happens in the gaming world to.....i love my Bad company 2 but when you get kids running around saying quick scope and no scope on it i think wow.....because bad company is the closest game i have played to military sim, you have to be like a real sniper and stay hidden and use gravity ect and act like a real sniper, you have to look at that too.

 

As a younger player as well I agree with you. Whats annoying is that all these kids make the rest of us younger players look like a bunch of idiots to. There is now a sterotype that younger players love COD and think airsoft is the same. Its really annoying especially when you've being playing for a while and people think you have no experiance.

However I have to hand it to the gamers they make for easy targets when they start shouting the COD cach phrases. The funniest (and dumbest) has to be when they call in kill streak rewards. One time I was next to this kid about my age who started shouting "predator missile, predator missile!" Unfortunately we were sneaking right behind the enemy team when he decided to do this and we then got masacred. :blink:

"predator missile, predator missile!"

you just gave me my next years BTEC project :lol:

 

Hehe, someone on AirsoftWorld/The Fort 's forum was/is doing this.

 

I'm not sure how far he got. All I do know is, he's built a prototype. It can barely fly when it has a camera attached, so I dread to think how a camera and grenade would cause it to do...

maybe. could see it working if it was for CQB.

 

my current best idea is just too awesome:

 

triple shot-shotgun (like the DE m56 series)

BUT

its an M4-a-like (muscle memories and whatnot.... or maybe G36)

has a mag containing several shells

is semi-auto and ejects teh shell after the 10th shot, allowing a loverly fresh and full shel to take its place.

 

CQB RAEP GUN AWAY!!!

One day i would love to see an airsofting gamer attempt a 360 no scope and fail (its when you jump with a sniper spin round 360 degrees and shoot someone, I know this because my freind loves cod and dose it all the time) :lol:

I've not really had that happen to me so far.

 

Although there was a problem when I was airsofting one weekend where a couple of people on the other team refused to tke hits EVEN WHEN there were 5 of us firing at a range of a few meters in the open.

 

Always take it up with the marshal if these wanker moments happen.

 

Another time, there was this ###### head with a stars and stripes t shirt (worst camo idea; if anything it's going to make people shoot him even more out of an anti-American impulse AMIRIGHT?! ;) JOKE!).

 

This guy would take the hit, but walk round a corner and magically respawn.

 

Luckily enough people complained to the marshal's about this and he ceased to bother us :)

 

Remember guys; it's a game! But there are rules to follow and you must take it seriously, because it's not a game[/simon Pegg]

I love you for quoting black books :rolleyes: just sayin

can't wait for it personally.

but its not a modern game, so I have the feeling we're abobut to get an influx of 'nam-era n00bs :D

 

Ok, well, I've been following this game. I got a bit of insider info too. However, at time of writing, atleast some of this has been released.

Killstreaks - RC bomb car.

Now memcwho, I know we've jokingly suggested making an RC airsoft gun....

 

Its not just Nam. It appears to be generic 1960's to 1990's. But with a crap tonne of 'Nam (sadly...)

Supposedly, atleast 1 mission will be (or based on) 22 Reg's Operation Nimrod. Expect a hell of a lot of black boiler suits and MP5s...

 

FAMAS type thing and AUG (yes, a good 10 years before Steyr even started the prototypes...) have arrived, as have several CAR-15 type things. Expect lots of these to make appearances in airsoft game.

 

Also - want to know how Treyarch get all their...erm...'knowledge' ha! on guns? Go to a firearms range? Ask experts? No. Airsoft guns.

 

Quite frankly, this game looks absolutely hideous and hilarious. It may or may not effect the sport/hobbie...

OPERATION NIMROD??????!!!!!!!!

*now has operation hard'rod' :P*

 

Its only a rumour.

If it is true, it could end up being like "mile High club" or spec opps - not really story related.

Again, I said based on though - it could be another 22rg type operation (SAS storming a building with hostages - but more than 5 terrorists...)

 

Guns - to suggest this, Treyarch have been seen studying MP5s and an L85.

I won't get my hopes up. I did that before - and was bitterly dissapointed by MW2 and BF:BC2.

first and for most i am a gamer, and i suspect you are as well as i've seen one of your videos where you say "look theres (forgot his name) camping in the corner" its a bit contradictorily don't you think?

 

airsoft is a military reenactment so i say let the kids get into it (i know all of us sure got into it first time going) so let them use there call signs, im not sure what you mean by "ordering people about" (if you mean shouting orders at everyone or theres someone other there we need to suppress? part of airsoft is teamwork and everyone chipping in helps) people aren't pre signed ranks (unless of course you have a chain of command like milsim *depending on where you go*) if people order me around (such as rush that position what are you doing, everyone rushs and the guy who said it just sat there) then i tend to ignore them and do my own thing (new or experienced) and tbh ive enjoyed it that way working the flanks instead of rushing in. but if its suppression fire and telling us where contacts are every little helps.

 

as for the helmet thing i can only sympathize with you, people (new and experienced) not taking hits is a real pain in the Arse.

 

im my time of airsoft, ive had some awesome newcomers who really get into it Many of which were gamers and i dont think you should stereotype them as then you would be saying ever gamer is a complete a******. (we all know some are)

 

and then ive had people who dont listen and dont take hits.

 

i hoped ive changed your view for newcomers, you were one once dont forget.

 

Well said :)

Yeah, about 4 or 6 of my group played Modern warfare 2 and i heard atleast 5 or more referencesanout the game. I play it but I wasn't a wuss about my first Firefight, I man then first encounter was getting temperture grenaded..... I liked to try and flank the enemy players but the trees ruslted so I was caught the first time. My mate kept saying I'm going prone, Im pretty sure it's a proper military term but he got it from Call of duty.

 

Next game was to plant a bomb, me and someone else were the escorters, I got hit so we switched. My mate went Search and Destroy.
