These different Airsoft games are suitable for controlled indoor or outdoors environment that is large enough for all players.
Prepared Players Are Ready To Play Games
When the players are properly outfitted and their Airsoft gun has been checked to see if it is properly working, the players are ready to play different games. A player must be prepared to play by having and using their protective gear, tactical gear, clothing and suits, favorite accessories, enough Airsoft pellets and of course, favorite Airsoft gun. You will enjoy your play with the spring loaded, gas or electric powered Airsoft gun in any of the different Airsoft games.
Using Hand Signals
Hand signals are used for silent communication between team members and as members gain more skill in understanding and using the hand signals, they will become better players. There are seven hand signals and they represent ambush, attack, enemy seen, get down, halt, hurry up and okay. Since these signals are known among opposing teams, it is best if teams customize the hand signals especially for their group so the other team cannot interpret their signals.
There are general rules for the different Airsoft games that if everyone follows will make the game play fair and more enjoyable. These general rules concern how to declare a player out and what a player should do if hit.
1. A hit to the body or gear means that a player is out
2. A player is not allowed to communicate with other players after being declared out
3. Friendly fire is considered a hit
4. A player who has been hit must proceed directly to the safe zone
5. A player who has been hit must yell, “I’m hit” and go to the safe zone with hands raised
6. It does not count as a hit when a weapon is hit
Games that are suitable for one team include Assassination. In the game Assassination, a captain is chosen who must avoid assassination by the person’s teammates. This skill building game can teach a team about the strengths and weaknesses of their fellow players.
Manhunt is a game that is suitable for one group of players and it is similar to Assassination. The difference is that the hunted player can only have a pistol with ammunition while the hunter players can use whatever Airsoft gun they want to use. The hunters must only shoot at the hunted player while the hunted player tries to reach a designated area within a chosen timeframe.
Last Player Standing
