Paintball is better than airsoft for many reasons. First off paintball has a lot more options to play in from speedball to woods ball to backyard battles. Tournaments are held across the globe. From college to indoor to pick up games. A lot more skill is needed to play paintball as well. Playing the "Dorito" side or "snake" takes many skills with angles and 2 finger firing. Paintball is more intense and active.

Airsoft is pretty much the same thing. It is more fun because you can use different types of guns like a LMG or a sniper. It leaves virtually no mess, unlike paintball. You would be an idiot if you did a backyard battle with paintball.

*Please be respectful in your statements though*

Paintball also has many different guns- in woods ball their are semi-autos, 2 finger firers, snipers, "bazookas", and grenades. Also there are venues where you play speedball both indoors and outdoors. Bunkers can be made of wood, foam, "bounce house" material, or an old building. There are many different game plays for paintball, tactical where you search and destroy, speedball which is capture the 1 flag, and woods ball which is all out war. Paintball also is more realistic both in feel and in the guns. Most airsoft uses batteries to propel mini little pieces of plastic at say 180-220 FPS, where as paintballs, shells of about half and inch diameter at about 260-280FPS and burst on impact, sending a feeling of quick pain to the player who was shot. This pain and the sounds of rounds hitting the bunkers ups adrenaline in the players. About the mess at paintball arenas the pain will either hit A. a bunker B. a person C. the wall/curtain D. the floor. Bunkers are cleaned by a small scraper that flings it to the ground, a person can wash their cloths. If it hits the curtain it falls to the ground barely breaking open. The floor is vacuumed by a "body vacuum" by an employ typically a high schooler of college age kid. Making paintball not only good for the players and more fun but good for the employees and economy.

You can basically play the exact game types with airsoft. There is more gun types than just batteries, there is green gas and spring also. There are more airsoft gun types than paintball. There are assault rifles, sub machine guns, light machine guns, shotguns, sniper rifles, and pistols. I have seen and used airsoft guns that are 600 FPS, not 220. Airsoft is more realistic. You can basically have a war like the real army but you don't kill anyone. I was not calling you an idiot. It would make sense to have a backyard battle with paintball if you have a huge backyard. But not if it was small and you would get crap all over your house and stuff.

There are many types paintball guns here are links: https://www.google.com... a hand gun. Sniper http://www.newegg.com... Assult guns https://www.google.com... There are many types of paintball guns and without sources it is pointless to try and say there is more. There are many other types too check it out http://paintball.about.com...

Paintball also is a lot more real, there are alot styles of games too. From mega wars to speedball there are lots of types.

Paintball releases more adreniline which makes the player have more energy and is alot more fun.

REBUTTLES:

Paintball has giant wars too, youtube "giant paintball wars" and you will see huge battle with hundreds of people with guns that can be snipers, rifles, traditional, grenade launchers, and plain out grenades.

Paintballs are non-toxic and can be washed off so if you did play in your back yard you can just wash it off, where as airsoft just litters the ground with no biodegradable plastic.

Paintball also is fired by multiple things; Co2, compressed air and spring.

Whether it releases more adrenaline is whatever you like better, so it could be paintball or airsoft. They do make bio degradable airsoft pellets. But it really doesn't matter if you use the bio degradable ones or the regular ones. I buy the regular ones and let the used ones sit in my yard and the rain washes them away. They make different kids of airsoft ammo. There is .12 gram for the most power but the least accuracy. There is .20 gram have a balance between power and accuracy. There is .25 gram with more accuracy than power. And there is .28 gram with extreme accuracy but the least power. The more powerful guns are better for the heaver bbs since they are already powerful anyway. CO2 and compressed air are basically the same thing except it is 2 different kinds of gases.
