Speedsoft is a fast-paced style of airsoft, requiring speed and quick thinking in order to eliminate your opponents and reach your team's objective. Speedsoft can be identified as a style of play, a style of your loadout, or both. Typically, speedsoft games are played indoors and act much like a sweep or clear executed in a rapid manner, with duration usually lasting around 4-5 minutes. Due to the swift nature of this style of play, speedsoft loadouts are often made up of more lightweight and less cumbersome gear. Players typically opt for more athletic clothing, such as running shoes or cleats instead of military boots. Short length, and maneuverable guns are a huge weapon of choice for speedsofters. They are typically CQB length guns, and/or powered by HPA systems. HPA is commonly used in speedsoft for their faster rates of fire, and there is less stress on an HPA engine than a convention AEG gearbox.
