Best Answer

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, 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.

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.

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 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.
