CQB or Field?

Well im just curious. How can you tell the difference between a CQB AEG and a Field AEG. I am asking this because in some youtube videos people use what looks to be a CQB gun in the field? Would that gun be classified as a CQB or field? I have also seen people use what looks to be a Field Gun in CQB? (e.g. M16/M14/G3) What makes an AEG a CQB type rifle/SMG

no real difference, some more compact guns do better in a cqb as they are more manouverable (sp?) versus longer guns, but there is no real rule that you can't use a longer gun in a cqb environment and vice versa, only rule concerns the fps, lower fps limits for closer engagements.

Close Quarters Battle (CQB) is just a general term for designating fighting in close proximity to your opponent (i.e. across the room, down the alley, from roof top to roof top, building to building). Engagement ranges are as close as contact (which really hurts...).

For that type of stuff...a lot of guys find a shorter rifle easier to move around in/around buildings. Small SMGs can "tuck in" and you can stay compact.

Typically handgun caliber rifles/SMGs would be for CQB and others would be field guns...but since these all shoot 6mm plastic bbs at roughly the same velocity it doesn't really matter.

Now, if there was rules in place where the FPS was limited based on rifle type (i.e. handguns/smg <350, 5.56<400, 7.62+<500)...that'd be kind of cool.
