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.
No getting shot by a paintball gun doesnt sting as much but will leave big bruises, it varys to what gun is being shot at you. Overall the paintball gun has more FPS so yes it does HURT more but doesn't sting as much
airsoft is more fun played both airsoft is more realistic
This is more of an opinion question, but i think paintball is more fun.
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.
Depends paintball is more upfront action. Airsoft is more strategical. So it depends on you. It really depends on what you like. I personally like paintball a little bit more than Airsoft. I also like Airsoft though because it's fun to go out with your friends and just play.
Yes, there are more paintball courses than air soft and is more common across the globe.
Paintball gun. You can see where you hit your target. I disagree, if you are looking for a more realistic looking weopon then use an airsoft gun
Yes, even though an airsoft bb is faster, a paintball is much larger and weighs more (their weight difference is greater then the speed difference..
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.
It really all depends where you get hit
Some Airsoft guns shoot at around 400 fps. All paintball guns are regulated to 280 to 300 fps. Airsoft guns also generally fire more per minute then paintball counterparts, because of the simplicity of the mechanics.
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.
