Quick question, I was planning to go to ultimate airsoft to try it out this weekend but my real interest lies in outdoor gameplay. Would the cqb give a good introduction? Mainly I was considering it to be able to rent as I decide on my kit
You will probably find that CQB is the perfect introductory primer. Starting outdoors, if you are not aggressive you may find yourself hanging back a bit, making it difficult to "test the waters", get shot, and confirm a kill or two. In CQB, you are forced to be more aggressive, like or not... you're going to eventually have a toe to toe fight. CQB just speeds that whole process up, and erases any illusions of fear a new player may have about wanting to see what it's like to get "lit up" at close range.
