How to Play 'Zombies' in Airsoft or Nerf

Are you bored of the same old Airsoft/Nerf games? Well, look here to find out how to play a new, interesting, and just plain awesome game. This game is very much like the Halo 3 version.

Steps

  1. 1
    Version 1:
    • First, get a gun! In either Nerf or Airsoft you are obviously going to need a gun. Look around and find some good guns on either a website or store. Fully automatic airsoft guns aren't recommended, unless they're low end guns. Gas pistols and shotguns will work best as they will balance the teams a bit and won't scare the zombies from trying anything (since real zombies don't get scared).

    • Now that you have a gun, get some players. It can be a friend, family member, or someone else. The more the merrier!

    • One person will start off as the zombie without a gun. (If you're playing Airsoft, you might want to get some gear on) and everybody starts off hiding, or right next to the zombie. The person playing as the zombie then counts to 5.

    • After the zombie has counted, he runs/chases/attacks after the non-zombies. If the zombies gets hit once anywhere on the body, he counts to 3. However, if he gets hit in the face, he counts to 5.

    • If the zombie touches anybody, they are then a fellow zombie, and are forced to put down their gun.

    • The last man is then the zombie for the next game. Repeat the steps for another game of Airsoft/Nerf Zombie!

  2. 2
    Version 2:
    • In this game, both the humans and the zombies get a gun. Try mixing up which side gets better guns for some fun variation.

    • The zombie(s) start on one edge of the field, while humans start somewhere around the middle. This allows humans to fall back if needed, while zombies are close enough to attack the humans repeatedly.

    • After a countdown, the game starts. If a zombie is shot, they must go back to the zombie spawn area before fighting on. If a human is shot, they go to the zombie spawn and respawn as a zombie. Humans do not have to drop their weapons when they are killed.
