I cant stand CoD personally. I understand the frustration of it with people in the airsoft world. I hate how people try to combine the two thinking they're great in the game so they must be amazing with a real gun (well airsoft but you know what i mean) Would be funny to see them find out how crap they actually are. Its mainly the attitude of them thinking they know everything about the guns because they're in a computer game like theres no difference. Generally people who are full of themselves and assume before they even pick up a gun that they'll be better than everyone else. Personally im a gamer of sorts. I barely play any games though, just a select few i like. I am a huge Resident Evil/Biohazard fan and collector so my loadout is all RE guns. I dont have the attitude though that im great. I havent really fired my gun yet as i had problems with it but i see it as fun, not something i'd have to 'be the best' at. I know somewhat about the guns from the games but i dont treat them the same in reality as they are in the games. Running around shooting things in a virtual environment is one thing, running around on the field with guns being fired at you is something else

You know the way in games they shout FRAG OUT! Or they yell out there plan of attack i.e. "im going to go up the right and flank him cover me" its very counter productive but good target practice for me

i can see why people get frustrated with this kind of thing, im a big gamer but not big on FPS games, i play cod, which tbh im not a big fan of, its fun for fast paced games but you play a sport/ hobbie such as this and its a game, its just pure mindless fun... with a bit pain here and their but hey whats pain :P. i have seen this before though with people, not necessarily in airsoft but in paintballing and online as well, tbh i dont know what im doing when im playing, but i try to think strategically. so i do as im told and get on with it, none of this yelling my next move down... thats what radios are for lol

My Dad's mate owns an Airsoft shop and i often go there for a while but you get all these modern warfare 2 fans come in who start comparing airsoft to modern warfare 2. "oh look its the m4a1 carbine from call of duty." I just have to bite my tounge and listen to them. Whats also annyoing as mentioned before is when they think the guns are exactly the same.
This is a bit off topic but I've played the game myself but I didn't like so I traded it in. When I told my freinds I sold it they went mad and have been criticising me ever since. ITS A GAME NOT A LIFESTYLE

To be fair, most of the time this happens in airsoft, its because players don't have radios. Out of 9 games at official sites, aside from the marshals (who don't count) I've only ever seen 1 team with radios. Each game had about 40 odd players. So, 3 out of 40 had the ability to communicate without yelling - when they had to tell others to do something...Yeah, they had to scream. (And, half way through the day their batteries died)

As for FRAG OUT! - well, this has been going on in Hollywood for years. It is also necessary to call 'frag out' or 'fire in the hole' etc at some sites. (Atleast when the pyro is bigger than a flashbang)

I will admit - I have been tempted to (eventually) paint my L85 up in 'Fall' camo. But then I realised how absolutely stupid that would be - Bright. Orange. Gun. Green woodland. :lol:
Although, 1 thing I definitly will do (once my L85 dies) is convert it to look like the "l86" (and I use that term lightly) in MW2. In other words, just stick some metal rigging onto the barrel and handguard, an M240/9 carry handle and see if I can fit a Beta-C mag in it...

Call of duty has damaged our hobby/sport slightly, by flooding it with muppets who think 2 Glock 18Cs is a viable way to fight or that the Walther Arms 2000 rifle is a military sniper. But, remember - if these kids continue, they will be the future of the hobby. And how are they any different from us who joined after watching films as a kid, and tried to recreate/act out scenes from the films? Dirty Harry. A Bridge Too Far. Ultimate Farce ( :lol: ) v.s Call of Duty.
Like 'em or hate 'em, these CoD Noobs could very well be the future of the hobby. Sure, they're annoying, inept and incompitant - just take a deep breath, aim down your sights - and enjoy the fun that is easy target practice.

am resonably new to this but before i was paintballing and u see similar things inn that environment. games like cod battlefront etc are easy u pres play get shot respawn rinse and repeat no rules and sometimes games are hacked. i understand these ppl think that this is wat its gona be like but reality bites back and i dnt want to put them off obviously u want ppl to play the game but they need to think a bit more in the spirit of it

I'am only 14 and love my fps games.....along with rpgs and mmo's too. I have been down to my site about 6-7 times and the thing that irritates me is the kids going oh wow thats the m4a1 and thats the scar-h and ect. i feel like saying know any more guns? they can only label call of duty known guns. i love my military stuff and just went down to a ww2 show today.

Some younger players annoy me lying about how many kills they got. I ask how many did you hit and they claim they hit 9 people....and there was 16 in the game......this was my mates first time and then some other guy claimed he got 8 kills and another said 5......and i know for sure i got one (tinted goggles in a dark woods ftl.....(i swapped them after that game for mesh) but you do the maths 5+8+9=22?

It happens in the gaming world to.....i love my Bad company 2 but when you get kids running around saying quick scope and no scope on it i think wow.....because bad company is the closest game i have played to military sim, you have to be like a real sniper and stay hidden and use gravity ect and act like a real sniper, you have to look at that too.

was it a respawn game? also when multiple people are shooting at target it can be hard to say who actually landed the hit.

As a younger player as well I agree with you. Whats annoying is that all these kids make the rest of us younger players look like a bunch of idiots to. There is now a sterotype that younger players love COD and think airsoft is the same. Its really annoying especially when you've being playing for a while and people think you have no experiance.
However I have to hand it to the gamers they make for easy targets when they start shouting the COD cach phrases. The funniest (and dumbest) has to be when they call in kill streak rewards. One time I was next to this kid about my age who started shouting "predator missile, predator missile!" Unfortunately we were sneaking right behind the enemy team when he decided to do this and we then got masacred. :blink:

Hehe, someone on AirsoftWorld/The Fort 's forum was/is doing this.

I'm not sure how far he got. All I do know is, he's built a prototype. It can barely fly when it has a camera attached, so I dread to think how a camera and grenade would cause it to do...

maybe. could see it working if it was for CQB.

my current best idea is just too awesome:

triple shot-shotgun (like the DE m56 series)
BUT
its an M4-a-like (muscle memories and whatnot.... or maybe G36)
has a mag containing several shells
is semi-auto and ejects teh shell after the 10th shot, allowing a loverly fresh and full shel to take its place.

CQB RAEP GUN AWAY!!!
