If i'm gonig to play today, what gear should i take? this is all i can think of

 

Spare battery

Spare mags

eye-protection

protective armor?

2nd wep

however, i don't know which gun to get

 

i have these ones in mind

 

P90

MP5(J,K,A)

G36-C

FAMAS

other

armour is not needed, neither is secondary weapon if you have an aeg,

 

 

Tm p90 is a lovely gun and the JG G36C is also fantasic, but its up to your personal preference, try before you buy

A good pair of boots that support your ankles is an advantage, saves those twisted ankle/stubbed toe moments that can spoil your day.

Don't get too wrapped up worrying about kit, just start with good goggles, some cheap army surplus camo stuff, an AEG, a battery and a hi-cap to get going. Then build up your kit to suit your style of play; you want hi speed/low drag? Belt, couple of pouches for spare mags, holster for a back up pistol, maybe a water bottle if you play longer games.

Or if you want full mil-sim? Spend some time studying the 'look' you want, then grab all the gucci gear you fancy to complete the 'look'.

Gun wise it really comes down to what you like the look of, then spend some time searching up reviews and user comments on the mighty interweb and base your choice on what you learn. :)

 

:devil:

the version 1 gearbox was the first gearbox made by TM (tokyo marui). it is older and not many companies make parts for it. the g-36c uses a version 3 gearbox which is strong and can handle high fps (feet per second) setups.

The gearbox version are well....different shapes and arrangements of the same system used to operate AEG's.

 

Personally i say go for the JG G36-c.

 

Rich.

 

Edit: beaten to it. Damm you pandemonium808. :P

I'd also say you should take the g36, and then instead of buying a lot of std mags, then just buy 2 hi-caps.

 

 

But what kind of gun would you like as your second?

 

IMO you don't need backupgun when you have an aeg as the g36.

I would say JG G36c with an extra high cap and an extra battery and you got a loadout that will be very efficient especially for a beginner. Later on you can decide whether you need a pistol or 2nd AEG.

1 - decent pair of boots.

 

2 - decent pair of goggles/shooting glasses or face mask

 

3 - decent starter AEG. I would suggest a Tokyo Marui made model. M4s are easily customisable, and with MP5s they are a gun that can go with several 'looks'. You'll want a charger and 1-2 batteries. Decent ammo is crucial too. Excel make the most popular in the UK IMHO.

 

Once you have those and you like airsoft, that is when the bug kicks in and your money disappears...

 

You'll want (I'm sure):

 

A set loadout/look - which means a selection of camouflage and matching bits and pieces, such as hats, scarves, gloves, knee-pads, vests, webbing etc...

Extra mags.

Side arm - again, I'd suggest a TM made piece. Oh, and a holster of course...

And basically what else takes your fancy!

DAMMMITT

 

why are there so many different types of guns?!@?!@? i luv the FAMAS, since in Soldeir Front and other FPS games i used it, and ialso liek the look...now ppl are saying G36-C FTW!!!

 

but what about the MP5? P90? FN2000?

 

im not gonna go a get a m4/m16/ak(too heavy, too popular, too ugly IMO) so any otehr suggestions? like comparisons? i've read too many reviews of each to decide

 

EDIT: I MIGHT start off with sniping..any suggestions as to if its good, what guns, etc? (emphasis on the MIGHT)

I started out with the FA-MAS and loved it's looks, ergonomics and rate of fire but in time I was drawn to harder hitting guns as the FA-MAS's fps is quite lethargic. Its a good beginners gun but if you do buy one, make sure you buy about four high caps as the rate of fire is about 1000 bbs a minute.

 

Just go for what you want and then take it from there.

 

I'd play as just a normal rifleman if I were you....

Id start off with an aeg over sniping because you'll learn some skills from being an assault type infantryman which you can then apply to sniping in the future plus not a lot of people adopt to airsoft sniping. If I was to choose a gun from the selection it would either be the FAMAS or the G36c because of where you want to use them. Why:

 

G36c is a very renowned gun, accurate, long range, reliable. so good for woodland. but also with the addition of the folding stock a good gun for cqb, its also got many accesory parts available.

 

FAMAS is well known for its inability to break even though its made of plastic, its long barrel means that its accurate and has a good range. For cqb the bullpup design means that holding it to the shoulder is short plus its got a good RoF aswell.

 

Basically its down to personal choice at the end of the day the weapon you like the look of best. Id also recommend gd boots, couple of extra mags, spare battery(s), gd eye protection, a sidearm and if neccesary a vest of some kind.

I started out with the FAMAS and it worked for the time being. Then when I got more money I bought all my gear and had a nice setup to go with my FAMAS. I eventually went the AK route and got into a sort of AK mind state for a long time. I bought a few M4's after that and I enjoy the quick reloading and custmizable options on them.

 

I hated the AK and the M4 when I started Airsofting, everyone has them type of attitude. But now I wont be caught with out one I love those 2 varients. SO many options, and upgrades for them.

So...i'll be using a FAMAS? you ppl agree? anyways, is a FAMAS easy to load and stuff? right now i just bought goggles, boots, and a vest for mags and a holster for the pistol...what else do i need? face mask, since the BBs might accidently hit my teeth when i open my mought, therefore shattering them xD?

i'll just say this...once you start playing regularly, you'll be kicking yourself that you didn't get something with more accessory rails. This is why the G36c is a really popular first gun. It's got no real downsides.

aw..that means everyone has the g36-c :( i want a gun thats original and rare, but also doesn't suck...

 

FAMAS Rifle's are excellent, hell it was my first gun (and i miss it now).

 

And as for "everyone has the G36c" ... does it matter? ... at the end of the day, your going to be shooting them, and you'll be shooting back at them (or retreating, should they be overrunning your position), so you'll be glad to have "a" gun to defend with.

Having a rare and unusual weapon is all very well, but it means spare and mags tend to be harder to find as well.

Stick with a well known design, and then you can swop mags in a firefight if you need.

 

Personally a G36 would be a good choice for the reasons stated by others above.

 

Different makes have different prices, popular makes are Tokyo Marui, Classic Army and Jing Gong.

Also get a decent full face mask to start off with.

 

 

No point in suggesting prices. If you are in HK you have the best prices already.

Actually that's not true is it.

 

Everyone does have an M16/ar15/M4 type thing. :mellow:

 

Only smart folk have the far superior in every way G36. ;)
