Questions And Answers

What is Airsoft?

You might not want to admit it but we know you played Cowboys and Indians when you were young and enjoyed the thrill and the challenge of trying to outwit your mates.

Well, Airsoft is all that, but for big boys and girls.

The equipment and clothing is much more advanced and realistic but it’s essentially the same game. Airsoft weapons are usually very accurate copies of real world rifles, pistols etc.

In recent years Airsoft has been constantly growing and it’s now taking over from Paintball as the modern combat sport. Think of Airsoft as being like Paintball, but without the mess, and with loads more realism and excitement.

Move over Paintball,  Airsoft is here!

You don’t have to be mega fit or rolling in money to play either. We can hire you everything you need to play and enjoy the day. Our regulars have bought their own equipment and they’re always happy to advise new players and help them decide what to buy.

The game itself is quite simple. At the most basic level we have two teams (let’s call them the Red and Blue teams) and they’re set tasks to achieve. The task might be as simple as catching the opponents base or something more complex such as locating and rescuing downed pilot and escorting him back to the safety of your base whilst fending off the opposing team of fifty or so players all within a 30 minute game time.

So how do you know you’ve been hit?

With Paintball it was very easy: a splat of pink paint marked the spot. Airsoft is completely different and relies on player honesty. The games are heavily marshaled, but the staff mainly keep a watching brief and ensure safety. At the end of the day it’s all about honour, knowing when you have been hit and calling yourself out. That’s when you have to take the lonely walk back to the Safe Zone, wait around for the next game and start all over again.

At Cerberus Airsoft we operate at a variety of sites to offer players a wide range of environments to play in. Everything from huge woodland areas to a hot dusty desert landscape and a massive urban complex.

We have to warn you that once you take the plunge there’s no turning back. The worm has well and truly turned. It won’t be long before you find yourself buying your own equipment and becoming a regular.

 Some more Questions and Answers

What does 'Walk On' mean?

A 'Walk On' player is one who has bought everything they need to play, as opposed to a 'Hire' player who'll need to rent the equipment from us

What do I get in the Hire package?

Our Hire package consists of an Airsoft weapon, face mask, full camo clothing, assault vest and 2000 rounds of ammunition. That should be enough to last you the day but if you use it all we always have more for sale. You must provide your own boots with good ankle support, trainers etc are not strong enough and you will not be able to take part without the proper footwear. You'll be given instruction on how to safely use the weapon and the rules and safety instructions will be fully explained.

How much does it cost?

For a 'Walk On' player the cost is £25 for the day at all our sites except for 'The Complex' where its £30. For 'Hire' players the cost is £45. This covers everything you need to play and includes a hot lunch and free tea/coffee/hot chocolate throughout the day.

How do I get a UKARA license?

There is no such thing as a UKARA license. UKARA was formed by a group of Airsoft retailers in order to provide a defence to the VCR Act(2006) so that genuine Airsoft players could continue to purchase Airsoft equipment legally. After completing the requirments set out by the Home Office a new player can be added onto the UKARA database

Do I have to come as part of a group? What is the minimum group size?

You can come as part of a group booking or on your own, either way you'll be made welcome and everything explained to you, there's no minimum group size.

Can I use a 'Two Tone' RIF?

If you really must then yes you can. Please make sure you buy a decent quality RIF though, a £20 plastic toy from a market stall will not last a day with us

Do you still run events at the Earth Centre?

No, the Earth Centre was sold to new owners who have other plans for the site. We'll keep an eye on it and if the situation changes we're at the front of the queue to use it
