Air soft is better in that it is much more realistic, cheaper, and can be played in a larger variety of environments (you can exactly play paint ball in your neighborhood, can you?). However, paint ball allows for fairer game play. This can be solved by buying paint ball BB's (paint balls in BB form) which are more expensive but less expensive then real paint balls.

Basically, air soft is better if you are playing with honest friends or you don't have a paint ball arena in your backyard, but if you're playing with large teams or for competition and you have the money, paint ball is the way to go.

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.

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.

However an airsoft mask will shatter if it is hit by paintballs.
