    Unfortunately, like many other sports, cheating occurs in airsoft. As much as it pains us to admit, players, both new and experienced, bend, ignore, and break the rules of gameplay for their or their team’s benefit. Thankfully, and we’d like to make this clear, it is a meagre amount of people that commit these crimes, and the sport is certainly not ‘rife’ with cheating. That being said, it is a frequently talked about topic of conversation within the community. Rather than shying away from this topic, we’d like to open up the conversation and present our own opinion.

  • What is a Bullpup Gun?

    Bullpup Rifle

    For hundreds of years, classic rifles and firearms have used a ‘bulletproof’ technique of firing. The trigger, as with all weapons initiates the firing process with the firing action occurring either in line or slightly in front of the trigger. All the way from the very first matchlock guns in the 14th and 15th-centuries to the classic Colt models on the 1800s and 1900s and now with the modern rifles that come in all shapes and sizes, the style, although differing slightly, has been a uniform approach.

The problem is, constantly adding upgrades to try and eek an extra few feet out of the range can get costly, so you need to make sure you're spending your money in the right places. We’ve put together a hit-list of what you need to spend your time and money on, and what you can probably get away with neglecting.
