Doesn't airsoft sting more than paintball?

Paintball hurts MUCH more than airsoft. The reason that Paintball hurts more than Airsoft is because the speed of the paintball is faster and the mass is also larger. Take an Airsoft BB and a paintball and look at the difference in size. Now, when you figure that Paintball markers have much greater speed than an Airsoft gun, you will find that Paintball will and should hurt more.

Does getting shot with an paintball gun feel like an airsoft gun?

Are airsoft guns safer than paintball?

It's not the sport that matters but how you play it. If you are stupid and don't wear masks then neither of them are safe. Paintballs hurt worse but in airsoft you get hit much more often. In paintball after about your second game you get used to getting hit and it doesn't hurt as bad. The same thing goes for airsoft. But when you think about it airsoft runs off batteries and paintball runs off of Co2 and HpA. So the only way you couldn't be safe in paintball is by not following the rules and not keeping good care of your gun parts and tanks. Hope this helps a little......Personally i play paintball. Send me a message if you have any more questions. Noobhelper 2 Paintball and airsoft are both safe if you know what you are doing and follow safety rules. If the question is what hurts worse, paintball will usually tend to sting more, but airsoft guns can vary in fps, (feet per second), and paintball guns have a set fps speed that fields will only allow (a limit), so you may run into airsoft guns that hurt worse than others, and paintball guns won't vary too much.

No, paintball is more commonly known and is more popular. The last person was correct but I'll give a more detailed answer. Paintball is more popular than Airsoft but more young kids play Airsoft because it's not as dangerous. Paintball players normally start at around 13 while Airsoft players normally start around 11. Airsoft is something that you can do in the back yard, while Paintball is something you normally need to go to a place that hosts Paintball games for.

What hurts more air soft or paintball?

there is a lot more to it than just the projectile size and weight. either one can hurt more. paintball has universally endorsed velocity limits set at 300fps which makes it safer (i will get to why in a bit) airsoft has no velocity limits and some of the snipers can shoot upwards of 7-800 fps, there has been a few cases of people getting shot in the neck at close range from a sniper and bleeding out in the woods before help can arrive, typically snipers are supposed to not shoot anyone within 100ft but without any kind of universal rule on the fps there is no way to guarantee safety like you can for paintball also while the airsoft projectile is smaller it also does not squish like a paintball will so it leaves a much smaller and deeper impact rather than a paintball which kind of deforms and spreads out its energy as it breaks (this is also why a paintball that bounces off of you hurts slightly more than a paintball that breaks, no break = contained energy that is transferred to your skin rather than going out with the exploding paint) i will say for the MaJoRiTy of airsoft guns out there that shoot right around 300fps or under the paintball will typically hurt more but the range and speed really are the determining factors in this question not just if it is an airsoft bb or a paintball that comes out of the barrel

Can you use a paintball mask for airsoft?

Yes, in fact it is better to bring a paintball mask because of the large lens and additional face protection. Paintball masks are near impossible to break with air soft, because they are designed to take paintballs, which have much more force than an airsoft pellet. However an airsoft mask will shatter if it is hit by paintballs.

Which is better airsoft or paintball?

This question cannot be answered objectively, It is whatever you think is "best." If you want an actual comparison you need to ask specific questions like "which is more realistic" or "which is more available." Like he/she said, it depends on what you like. If you want realistic battles, Airsoft is most likely going to be more fun. If you like a game that will really hurt when you get shot, Paintball would be more fun. It's all a matter of opinion and what you like.

Which of these two sports are more fun and more realistic airsoft or paintball I mean if cost is not a problem and you could play each sport at it's best it could offer?

In general, paintball has a lot larger base, and can gather more people for events. There are paintball fields in a lot of places, and not many dedicated airsoft areas. If you have the money you can get good gear and have fun in either. At that point you can buy and use realistic paintball guns (or more fun, over the top airsoft guns). The expensive airsoft guns look very realistic, but since the military uses paintball guns for training, it could go either way for "realism". If you can find a dedicated milsim group in either you will be set.
