What do you think, realistically, is the longest you could airsoft non stop for? Assuming ammo, food, shelter etc is all taken care of whats the longest you could actually play airsoft for before going either mental or dieing from exhaustion?

I think I could manage about a week before wanting to cry/kill someone! If there were night ops included then if they were managed correctly you wouldn't burn out too fast. It would definitely come down to decent command and control.

Pretty interesting question.

Are we talking 24/7 or with the standard stops for re arming and taking a break etc?

Last week I played a game that lasted over 2 hours and that wasn't a problem... I really don't know tbh. I guess indefinitely, as it would end up like being at war for real in terms of how much time you spend playing.

Longest I've personally done is 4 days (Out of a 5 day event; had to leave during day 4), but that was almost 9 years ago, not sure if my out of shape self could cope with that now, though!

FPS; Also known as 'Faulty Player Syndrome'. The condition by which the user feels the insatiable need to increase a weapon's power; which is inversely proportionate to their skill.

I can only play for up to 2 days (with no night game), I would love to do more but my ankles slowly dislocate as I walk/run/stand

*EDIT* The longest I have played with no break was 5hours at NAE but then I had to go back to the camp-site for my other gun

I could go all night baby, but you might struggle to keep up, I closely resemble a blue whale in the pants depar-...Oh. Wait, this isn't that valentines match making service for those into ritual sacrifice! Oops.

Seriously though, I could live airsoft, I dunno why I never considered joining the forces sooner tbh.

theoretically infinitely, I simply don't stop working untill I'm too cold. - I lasted the england scotland game on nothing more than a single mince pie and 6 hours sleep overnight.
It also would depend on how far you take 'airsofting'
Speedball - an hour tops (before break)
open day skirmishing - 3 days in a row
low end Mil-sim (england scotland game stirling run) 4-5 days
High end Mil-sim 2-3 weeks providing the story keeps it active.
something I have just invented called 'Dave-sim' in which everyone goes about their everyday lives, but is constantly armed to some extent (airsoft) and fire fights could break out at any stage, also there are small street gangs thrown in with larger weapons just to harrass everyone - Infinate

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

Well my unfit self finds six hours skirmishing (multiple games) enough, but I suspect I could go longer on a milsim style event. My challenge would become time from work / wife not just playing, but recovering the other side...

That just made it even worse :lol:

Reckon I could go on a continous week of airsoft so long as I got a couple of hours of sleep each night.

Also Dave-sim needs acctualy happen now!
