Weight Matters When It Comes To Airsoft BBs
When choosing an Airsoft BB, it’s important to keep in mind that weight matters. Different weights of BBs can affect the trajectory and accuracy of your shots. Generally speaking, heavier BBs tend to be more accurate than lighter ones as they will retain their momentum for longer periods of time in flight. But this isn't always the case; it all depends on the type of gun you are using and its FPS (Feet Per Second). Generally speaking, guns with an FPS greater than 400 should use heavy-weighted BBs while those with an FPS lower than 400 should use light-weighted BBs. This ensures that your shot is accurate and on target. Shop our Elite Performance Airsoft BBs today!

Breaking Down The Different Weights Of Airsoft BBs
Light-Weighted: Light-weighted Airsoft BBs weigh between 0.12g – 0.25g and are most commonly used with low-powered guns such as spring powered guns or electric pistols due to their low power output. However, these lightweight pellets can also be used in high-powered AEG rifles when you need a tight spread at short distances because they travel faster through the air than heavier pellets but lose their momentum quickly once fired, making them less accurate at long distances. Medium-Weighted: Medium-weighted Airsoft BB’s weigh between 0.20g – 0.40g and are perfect for mid range shots where accuracy is key because they maintain their momentum better than light weighted pellets do but still travel fast enough to be effective at mid range distances up to 150ft away from you when using a high powered AEG rifle or SMG (Sub Machine Gun). They are most commonly used in CQB (Close Quarters Battle) scenarios where accuracy over long distances is not necessary and mid range shots are more common due to close quarters combat taking place indoors or within limited spaces outdoors. Heavy-Weighted: Heavy-weighted Airsoft BBS weigh between 0.28g – 0.32 and are best suited for sniper rifles due to their slow velocity but powerful impact when hitting their target, making them highly accurate at long ranges up to 200ft away from you when using a sniper rifle with a high rate of fire (ROF).


Type of BB is also a big consideration. When playing outside you should consider using Biodegradable BBs. These BBs will break down over time after they have been used which is good for the environment! When playing indoor or at night it would be beneficial to use tracer BBs. These BBs glow in the dark one shot through a muzzle device called a tracer unit. Tracer BBs are perfect for indoor or night play so you can see your shots! They also provide another layer of customization to the game! Shop from our selection of Tracer units here to find the right style for you. 

Conclusion: Whether you’re just starting out or have been playing airsoft for years, knowing which weight of airsoft bbs works best for your particular needs can help ensure that every shot lands on target! Remember—lightweight pellets work best with low powered guns while medium and heavyweight pellets work best with higher powered guns depending on how far away from your target you want your shot to land accurately! So no matter what kind of airsofter you are, there is a weight that will work perfectly for you! Good luck out there!
