If a military is not using simunitions, they use paintball. The negative feedback of getting hit and it showing along with the ability to use powder or water rounds make it a much better option than airsoft.

The military, when not using simunitions (chalk like paintballs used in actual firearms) , uses paintballs for training.

A paintball gun fires a larger projectile with more weight/speed ratio then airsoft, but airsoft guns shoot at a higher feet per second rate.

What is better a paintball or a airsoft sniper rifle?

it depends on what you want to do. if you like airsoft then get an airsoft sniper. if you want a good paintball gun then DO NOT get one that looks like a military gun. in my opinion i would get a paintball gun. i would recommend $100 Azodin $250 proto rail $350 dangerous power G5 to me, these are the best starter guns. but before you buy a gun go to your local field and try it out to see if you like it.

Is airsoft guns better then paintball guns?

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.

Is airsoft better than paintball?

Neither is better. Some people prefer different aspects than the other: Paintball: hurts more costs more larger games more fields professional league more game types Masks needed Airsoft: hurts less costs less harder to find games generally only milsim games goggles needed Paintball guns: Milsim guns: used by military and law enforcement for training can be highly realistic and expensive Tournament guns: used by speedball tournament players: very "unrealistic" built for high speeds and accuracy Airsoft guns: increased realism with price. Still need orange tip. The concept of "realism" is a term that seems to be a key in this argument, and some things need to be cleared up: All "guns" are based around their projectile, the more that paintball or airsoft guns look and function like real firearms, the less they actually perform in their sport, and the better they look. This is generally less important in airsoft than in paintball, where gun speed and capacity are usually highly valued, which is why Speedball guns have their unique shape and use hoppers instead of magazines or clips. If you value realism over gun advantages, then air soft may appear to you more than paintball, where you may like shooting allot more, faster, at more people. Just wanted to add that on adverage, the hurts more/less and costs more/less is true. However, because FPS is not regulated in airsoft, it very well can hurt more if you are close enough and someone is shooting fast enough. There are actually a few cases of airsofters dying as a result of being shot in the neck from way too close by a sniper rifle which fires much faster than most airsoft guns. As for cost, there are a handfull of companies out there who use actual firearms parts and customize them to use for airsoft guns, these are VERY expensive as you are basically buying a firearm and paying someone to modify it (no licences needed since the end result is still an airsoft gun) These guns and many of the "high performance" airsoft guns actually far surpass even the most expensive of paintball markers (while not getting into custom stuff) because they have the high performance as well as the military look.

Can an airsoft gun shoot paintballs?

Yes they can. Even though an airsoft pellet are smaller and are faster then paintballs, the bunkers are made to withstand a very high foot-pound pressure before you would be able to puncture a hole into it. Just remember to maintain the bunkers well and keep them clean.

Why did they made paintballs?

Well when they made paintballs in the first place they were for "paintball guns" that farmers would use to mark cows and mark poles and such. In 1981 the very first paintball game happened when a few friends took these guns and played a game. After they had a lot of fun like a lot of paintball players do, after they played one of them named Bob Gurnsey made the first paintball gun and started selling them. After that the guns kept getting newer and better to this day. Now paintballs are made just to play the sport of paintball.

Does playing paintball make a better soldier?

Paintball is used by several militaries in training, including the US and GB. Paintball is not a perfect simulation of war by any standards, but It is preferred by many over laser systems or blueguns, because of the actual projectiles used, and their relative low cost.

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.
