Airsoft is as close as you’ll get the intensity and drama of warfare, without packing your bags and joining the army. It’s also more than a little bit safer. So let The Activity People put together the perfect trigger-pumping campaign, at one of our premier venues.
Like its paint-splattering cousin, competitors are divided into two teams and then compete in a variety of combat games. These games range from authentic military simulations composed of diverse and challenging mission objectives, to light hearted, free-shooting encounters designed for fast paced fun and plenty of close quarters combat with your mates.
During these heart-pounding skirmishes, the ammo that’s whizzing across the warzone will consist of small plastic pellets, 6-8mm in diameter and weighing a mere 0.2g. This is significantly lighter than a paintball, meaning less force is required to propel the bullet. This in turn means that they don’t hurt, and no lasting damage will occur.
Players may feel a brief stinging sensation immediately upon taking a hit, but this feeling will quickly disappear. Unfortunately, we can’t say the same about the damage to your pride as you mope back to the safe zone for the remainder of the current game.
Another benefit of this ammo’s dimensions is the price. These pellets which are smaller, lighter and cheaper to make than paintballs are available in twice the quantity at half the price from the vast majority of centres.
Of course, ammo’s no good without a weapon to blast it from and these games excel for their weaponry. Book an exciting Airsoft experience and you’ll be armed with an identical, fully-automatic, working replica of a firearm used in real combat situations around the globe, not to mention your favourite Hollywood blockbusters.
An Airsoft arsenal includes M4, M16 and AK47 assault rifles, to name just a few, and these glorified BB guns mimic their real life contemporaries in appearance, weight and even operation. Unleash that inner action-man as you dive for cover, pull a spent magazine from your gun and smack another one into place before leaping back into the firing line and spewing bullets at the marauding enemy gunslingers.
Gun hire, ammo, protective mask and overalls will be provided at no extra cost. But it doesn’t stop there. Depending on the venue, players can also hire sniper rifles, silenced handguns and more. They can purchase grenades and pyrotechnics so long as they’re 18 or over. Some parks even run mission scenarios which involve gun turrets, heavy artillery and RPG’s.
Airsoft is your chance to leap out of your living room and directly into the scenarios that unfold in games like Call Of Duty and Medal Of Honour. What’s more, apart from a sturdy pair of shoes, we’ll take care of everything you’ll need to take part.
