My first time playing (video)

Recommended Posts

Technically the second game of the day but forgot to turn camera on. Surprised at the quality for a used Xiaomi from ebay.

 

 

 

(That's my mates ass in the thumbnail haha)

 

1. I went all-out sprinting around and sliding everywhere like crazy and exhausted myself, that combined with the heat and about 19mins in to this game I had to tap out and some medic on my team took me back to safe area to help cool me down etc. Everyone there was super nice.

 

2. Need to slow down next time and not kill myself running about like crazy. That or just get fitter, been a year since I went the gym, but there were guys that looked like they weighed 300lbs that seemed fine after 4 hours.

 

3. Slimming down my loadout / reducing weight where I can. Took a backback full of shit I thought I might need and didn't even use my rifle long enough to drain the one battery in there. I don't think I even went through 3x mags for it.

 

4. Took a sniper shot straight to the upper cheek about 1:50m in, stung a bit and bled but eh expected it.

 

5. My arms are covered in scratches and shit from sliding around on grass and trudging through bushes and such.

 

6. I had no idea what I was doing and my eye protection fogging up made it almost impossible to see anything. A lot of people there didn't even use face protection (other than eyes), I'm too scared of being hit in the mouth but the increased ability to actually breath (and not fog up the lenses) would be good so I am thinking about it.

 

7. Man I am taking the light of my arc rail, totally useless other than looking cool - would never use and just sticks out. Same with the torch and peq on the pulse rifle - besides, thing is heavy enough. I'm saving them for when my FN Herstal SCAR-H arrives.

 

8. Despite all that it was hella fun and can't wait to go back and get better. I don't think I hit a single person but I tried to suppress when I could escorting the 4x4 buggy thing.

 

Fun.

Welcome to airsoft 😂

 

Most people (including me) learned to slim down the gear to the minimum depending on the game.

Get mesh lower which will protect while being well ventilated.

Your friend might need some rear protection 🤣

 

You'll learn to pace yourself and it helps when you work with team mates to advance while covering etc.

Agree with EDcase I will add shaving gel for the fogging put it on the lenses leave it to dry if you have time then wipe off on game day...sorted

foam it up first or just rub the gel on in a smooth layer?

Works with washing-up liquid as well:

 

-Little drop on finger

-Rub on inside lens to make thin layer

-Allow to dry

-Rub off

Nice thanks. they had some anti-fog stuff there but it didn't last very long before fogging up again. seriously thinking of just playing without a mask because as you can probably hear in the video I could barely breath, I can't be that out of shape!

You're trying to hard nothing wrong with that but run when necessary a fast walk can be better and a slow stalk is better still just depends on objective,terrain and the role you are playing 

Try a wire mesh lower you only get one set of teeth I've had the moisture that gathers on the wire splash me in the face multiple times due to hits I walk away smiling my teeth not looking like a picket fence...know what I mean? 👍

Regarding fogging. There are a load of topics on here so check 'em out.

 

I swear by my Dye i4 mask. It has never fogged up on me once due to it's dual pane construction. Not cheap but worth it if you like to see what's happening. The only down side is that it can impair you ability to look down your gun sights.

 

My son has one of these. Cheap but no fogging.
