  • Riot Shields in Airsoft: Overpowered or Under-utilised?

    Man using riot shield in Airsoft arena

    In a sport that is built on respect, fair play and keeping within the ‘spirit’ of the game, riot shields are something of a dividing topic. Many of us will have at some point considered whether using a shield would be productive for us and our teammates and whether it would be something we actually want to use. If you’ve not played with or against a riot/ballistic shield in the past, this may be something of a new topic for you and something you are yet to make up your mind on.

    Welcome to part two of our guide to airsoft brands. If you’ve not seen our part one article, click here to access it. Following on from the first instalment, we shall be looking at a variety of airsoft brands and hoping to uncover a little more about them. To aid your gear buying decisions, we shall also be grouping them into two different categories, these are ‘performance’ and ‘budget’. Sometimes these two will overlap so we’ll do our best to keep the distinction as black and white as possible.

  • Upcoming Airsoft Guns We’re Looking Forward to in 2019

    Airsoft gun with additional accessories

    Each year, we’re seeing bigger and better airsoft guns being released; which is great for our collections but not so great for the bank balance! This year, we saw some great products put out by some of the big boys, such as Tokyo Marui, but also some great weapons from smaller companies too! This market competition is invaluable for the airsoft community, to make sure that we’re only seeing the best products come to market. That being said, there are still a few ropey weapons making it onto the shelves and inevitably onto the battlefields, which can often lead to disappointment from the user. So we’re doing a bit of a roundup, to help you keep your eyes on the prize (the best upcoming guns) and not spend money where it’s not warranted. As a small disclaimer, any dates mentioned in the article may change, product designs may also change and unfortunately, we won’t get to try any of these before they are released, so this is mostly just our initial opinions. We’d love to hear from you to know what you’re looking forward to and to let us know if there’s something we’ve missed! Now, let’s get into the list:

  • A Brief Guide to Airsoft Brands – Part One

    Airsoft guns with accessories

    Airsoft as a sport and as a community has grown exponentially over the past ten years, with more and more people heading to arenas with their teammates to take part in skirmishes. The ability to upgrade, study and generally pore over guns and accessories, along with the ability to share and connect with other players from across the world has contributed to Airsoft’s continued success. People have even made careers out of sharing content on the sport through YouTube or blogging! This article is aimed at both experienced players who want to top up their airsoft knowledge and also new players who are picking up their first gun. Brands typically fit into either the performance category or the budget category, with some occasional overlap, so we’ve highlighted them accordingly.

  • Airsoft Face, Neck and Head Protection

    Camouflage mesh mask for face protectionFollowing on from our previous blog on airsoft eye protection, we are looking at the protection required for your head and face. Though the pellets and BBs fired from airsoft guns are nowhere near as powerful as a bullet, they can still cut skin and leave a bruise. Like with eye protection, you don’t have to splash out that much for some basic quality head and face protection.
