We all know a thing or two about popular camaraderie building sports such as paintball or airsoft. But, how about the version of this outdoor sport where you play at night?
As interesting as it sounds, you will need some extra tips to prepare for this fun and exciting challenge!
Tip 1: Be Stealthy
Staying low, or in other words camping, might be the most prudent thing you can do when it comes to night airsoft. Other than the possibility of being spotted or ambushed, you are completely safe this way. Watch the events unfold from the safest spot you can find and try not to draw any attention to yourself by moving or making any noises.
Tip 2: More Ammo
Running around in dark won’t be easy and you will probably have more futile tries to shoot someone down than usual. Make sure you have plenty of ammo with yourself because you will most likely spend it faster than during the regular “day” airsoft.
Tip 3: Night Vision
As it will be pretty dark, you might want to consider getting some night vision binoculars to help you with coordination. If you are playing after the sun sets then you will gradually get accustomed to the darkness. But, as it gets darker and darker, you will probably need some sort of a gadget that will help you achieve better results.
Tip 5: Team Communication
Seeing your teammates will be really hard in these conditions. So, you will have to come up with a way to communicate among yourselves. That is, of course, if you don’t want to end up shooting one of your own accidentally…or being shot.
Tip 6: Dress Up Properly
Don’t get your hopes too high that nobody will spot you just because it is night. Try not to wear bright colors or any illuminating objects with you. Some will advise you not to wear all black, but it sure is a better option than wearing something conspicuous. Make sure that you are wearing all the protection you need, safety equipment and of course always have some kind of eye protection.
So here you go. Read these tips for night airsoft and it might give you an insight of what it is going to be like. When, sincerely , you can’t even imagine how much fun you are going to have! Expect the unexpected, stay safe and have a wonderful time!
