Airsoft is a blessing in a curse. You can meet up with your buddies after a long week of work and go to the field and just have a good time.
That’s a blessing.
The curse part is that your enjoyment can often be dependent on the behavior on the enemy team.
What do I mean by that?
To put it simply, I mean calling your hits.
It’s the worst feeling in the world when you finally have a visual on an enemy target after being so patient.
You set up your airsoft sniper, aim carefully at the opposing enemy, and boom. You hit your target….just for him to pretend he didn’t know he got hit.
Now you’re angry, and their pretending that their extra layers of clothing made it so that they couldn’t feel the BB hitting them, EVEN THOUGH THEY REACTED TO BEING HIT IN THE FIRST PLACE.
Deep breaths….Deep breaths…
Ok, back to the point.
It’s not fair to your team when the enemy does this, and it can ruin the whole mood.
On top of that, it’s pretty unrealistic if it was a realistic combat with real weapons. Airsoft is fun because it’s a realistic simulation of military combat. No one can just ignore a sniper wound.
So moral of the story is: Play a fair game.
If you get hit, acknowledge you got hit, and wait for a medic or until you respawn.
This will make the game more fun, and everyone can have a good time.
