indoor game fps

hi, I am new to airsoft'. Just played my second indoor game yesterday. I was told 350 fps is the limit originally and no exception. But lately, I was told 400 fps is fine. I just want to survey and know what other places rule is towards fps for indoor. Is 400 is too high or norm for indoor.. Thank you for yr input...

Most places limit indoor to 350 or less.
It's always a LIMIT, not a goal. That can never get stressed enough.

Usually its 350 for indoor and 400 for outdoor.

is most places going at 350 limit? Also, what gear people use for indoor? Saw some with just google, mask t-shirt etc... Others are full gear. I guess t-shirt don't have much protection...

350 is pretty standard for cqb in my opinion. as far as the amount of gear worn~ Depends on your pain tolerance versus how hot/ uncomfortable layers of gear make you. Face protection is a good idea- teeth are expensive to replace. And sooner or later you will surprise someone who will react with a full auto blast to your head-guaranteed. I think the anticipation of pain before you run into that room is an exciting part of the cqb game. I have seen guys wearing bomb disposal get-ups onto the field and wondered to myself that maybe cqb isn't really their game. I have also seen people playing in shorts and a muscle shirt with complete disdain for the red welts, AS with most things in life the best answer lies between these extremes and you have to work it out for yourself

350 seems to be the high standard for Canada, some places as low as 300
But depending who you play with, I've played indoors with 420 limits, some guys even ran 500+ (GBBRs with heavy ammo)
Nobody complained lol

I only wish that more indoor venues would set 400 as the upper limit instead of 350-360. It's not as bad when they allow muzzle velocity reducers (although some hosts have some massive hate against those). They work well in my experience and the FPS is stable even in full auto.

Besides that, I wouldn't mind getting shot at 5ft at 400 FPS as long as ammunition is restricted to .20

thx guys. Don't have any gear right now except m4 at 330~345 fps, mask and a pair of magnum boot. Looking forward to have buy ACU shirt and pant. Then a vest and pistal. In both game I played, I tend to stay at the back but lots of fun!. Anyway, I would assume 350 is the norm and anything above is just too much.

if I am using my m4 with 350, am I in bad situation playing with others with 400 fps? Just wonder if 400 is too much for indoor... Any idea? Thx.

Most places will not allow 400 for indoor. In reality, 350 is more than enough for the usual indoor paintball places. You won't notice much difference in your ability to hit something with 400 instead of 350 in such short ranges.
Heck, I played indoor games with a TM MP7 AEG that shoots 250fps and I find it plenty. Its the hopup system and good, heavy BBs (0.28g or higher) that matter more than just high FPS

350 with .20 is tolerable, with no mercy and 0 distance engagement,

This is the limit we use at TTAC3 .. we still have lots of bleeders and bbs occasionally embedded in skin.

we have had broken fingers and shattered knuckles at this FPS as well

For field games the ranges are generally much longer, and with foliage to get through you need a higher FPS and heavier ammo.

400 fps with ammo heavier than .20 will result in injury.. this tends to reduce people's enjoyment of the game.

you can play indoors with 300fps at .20 just fine.. there is no loss of performance as the engagement range is so close that even hopup in not necessary..

the issue is that most guns come stock shooting at 400 + now so you need to tune them down to play indoors and tune them up to go outdoors..

OR.. you should have an indoor set up and and outdoor set up with different guns.

ya 400fps on .25 bbs

It def ruins a lot of people's days. IMO too hot.

When bb's start shattering lenses of goggles/scopes you gotta tune it down.

It really depends on who you run with and which field you go to. My local indoor field limit is 320 fps with the group I play with, but I've known others to play 400 fps in the same field.
