Airsoft Q&A with @WhispTech
  • What's the difference between "designated marksman" and "sniper"?
    Designated markman usually is a rifleman but the rifle is setup a bit different and will have like a 4x magnification sight ike an elcan spectre or an 4x acog. They are advanced marksmen that lay down accurate quick fire on a location. They are not quite a sniper.
  • How exactly does a "grenadier" work in simulated war games?
    Grenadier is a term I don't see much. Pretty much just a rifleman with a 40mm grenade launcher either attached to rifle or the individual ones held.
  • What is a "recon"?
    Recon individuals have to be quick sometimes as well and why they wear light gear. Recon actually usually go out and gather information and return. Their job is to map out a location and obtain information for a team that is about to advance.
  • What is a "scout"?
    A scout is usually a point man of a squad that is ahead of the group to find and locate enemies and then report back to squad for an engagement.
  • What is "support"?
    Support isn't always at the rear and watching the back. They also carry the heavy support weapons for laying down supressive fire for team advancment and manouvers.

Nice post @Editor 👌
@Andy Z. Our military use some tipe of lasers so when they got "hit" their rifle its locked and they cant figjt anymore..
Its good against cheating.. But in airsoft it really hard, this is based on fairplay..
Many people think they ara terminators or they give soo much money to gear and upgrade rifle so they cant stand someone with a low budget rifle hit him 😂
Many things happen, but now many people use cameras, scopecam and you can see whwn you go back at home if you hit him really, and then you post him on youtube as a cheater.. next time he will think twice 😉

I would like to play one game with all of you here would be really fun, @Sandspoor in my team 😊👌🔥😎
