    Make it a story line. For example, a game mode like demolition, but go into why the bomb is planted and who is diffusing, the process of them trying to stop it, ect.

    I don't have a large budget, I will probably use 3 or 4 cameras, Airsoft and prop guns, lotsa gear

    It kinda helps when we know that guns and gear you have. You can't do a Vietnam movie with modern gear/guns, and vice versa.

    One thing to think about: do you want this "movie" to just be random people shooting at each other for an hour, or for it have a protagonist and a plot, conflict, climax, etc.?

    Edit: since you're going for a prop, just get some 1:1 scale replicas. You don't need them to do anything except look real. And special effects can help with that as well.

    So you want it to be an idea (like bombing something) and then the plot being the protagonist stopping it before it happens?

    Do you want it to be realistic at all or just a bunch of guys running around shouting "tango down!" and "air strike inbound!" ?

    Don't watch war movies then. Watch war documentaries and films. Go on YouTube and watch some clips of soldiers fighting. There's some good stuff and you can use what they say and do in those clips in the movie. I would also do a first person view. I've always wanted to see a war movie where the whole movies is in first person, so you can see it from their perspective.

    Do you have any preferences as to what you would like, as in a 9/11 scenario or a bomb in a football stadium?

    In that case he would have to buy condors instead, which could be expensive if he doesn't already have them.

    I play on a milsim team so I know most of the militaries tactics and lingo, and I like the first person idea, I might use a lot of those types of shots
