  1. Tips on Sniping in Airsoft Games

    Stalking is one of the most important skills an airsoft sniper must learn and here is how you can do it. In stalking you are locating your intended target then slowly moving towards him in an unassuming way before surprising him with a hit. The key to good stalking in airsoft is to constantly watch where and how your target moves so it will be easier to locate him and snipe. While doing this you'll also need to watch out for any traps your enemy may have set up and you should have...

    Ever have issues with just not being able to hit your target? Well lets take a look at some easy fixes for that.

This is a fundamental...
