Airsoft is a competitive team sport in which participants eliminate opponents by shooting each other with spherical plastic BBs launched via replica weapons called airsoft guns. Airsoft is commonly compared to paintball, which is a recreational shooting sport similar in concept but with some keen differences. Unlike paintballs, airsoft pellets do not mark their target, and hits are not always visibly apparent. Though the pellets will not leave red marks or "welts" on the targets’ exposed skin, the game relies heavily on an honor system in which it is the ethical duty of the person who has been hit to call themselves out, regardless of whether or not anyone saw it happen. Another difference to paintball is that all airsoft guns are magazine-fed from the bottom, with some (especially pistols) having replaceable compressed gas (e.g. propane, 1,1,1,2-Tetrafluoroethane or CO2) canisters. Many airsoft guns also have mounting platforms compatible with genuine firearm accessories, and tend to more closely resemble real guns. This makes them more popular for military simulation and historical reenactments. Gameplay varies in style and composition, but often range from short-term skirmishes, organized scenarios, close quarters battle, field, military simulations (MilSim) or historical reenactments. They are played in indoor courses and outdoor fields.
