How to start playing airsoft...?

Hi guys,

My friends and i just got age verified but all we have is an aeg , goggles and a pair of boots but we don't know who will accept newbies and how it'll work? We never played airsoft. I checked the games and all of them requires a certain type of clothes pattern ... isn't there a usual clothing that should be generally used ? (woodland green / od) ? and then theres mags and bbs rules ... Thank you for clarifying. It'll be really helpful, we don't want to get yelled : NEWB GO AWAY or whatever. We just want to prepare as much as possible but i haven't found that FAQ yet. Thank you for your time.

Were from Montreal. I have looked in few montreal's events/games already.

Some games are camo restricted, others are not. These days, most games are splitting teams via either digital vs analog patterns or green based camo vs tan based camo with non-green and non-tan being desiganted onto which ever team at the game admins discretion. Each game may will be different so no one other than the game admin can tell you what you have to have. Typically, civilian sporting camo patterns are frowned upon as airsoft has it's roots in the milsim aspect of the sport. There shouldn't be any reason why you couldn't get a set of woodland or three color desert or OD or anything else military based or go for the contractor look. I haven't heard of too many games that are that restrictive though there are a few.

Mag limits and reloading rules can vary from game to game. Real/Low caps are always allowed at any game I've ever heard of, mid and high caps may be resticted in their use or the number that can be used. FPS limits are fairly close across the country, but you have to check with the game admin for sure. Remember, the fps limit is just that, a limit. It is not a goal.

It all depends on the game. If its a casual skirmish? You should be fine in whatever. My first game i wore a hoodie and jeans :P

If i were you, i would avoid milsim for a while, until you have a few basic skirmishs under your belt

Ya the first few times just do some skirmishes, you'll figure out how not to get owned.

A set of OD (pants, and tunic) is like $30 and they are plenty available in most Surplus stores.

That should only really be the basic requirements and you should consider skirmishes rather than full out milsims.

Most teams are really accepting of newbies and want to expand instead of running with the same 10 guys forever they will probably want the team to grow so there's more variety and more people to play against. Note that is only for general clubs and teams. Specific teams may have strict requirements (eg. WWII reenactors, PMC, milsim oriented teams).

Real/Low caps are always allowed at any game I've ever heard of.


You need to check out the Man day game here in Ontario.
