Airsoft is a rapidly growing combat sport in which teams play against each other to either secure objectives or eliminate the opposition. Airsoft uses replica weapons that fire 6mm BB to strike the target. If you like playing games like call of duty this is your chance to live it out and immerse your self into the adrenaline pumping action-filled sport which is Airsoft.

Each game you play in airsoft is never the same as the last. It can be as simple as a team deathmatch or a day-long scenario involving constantly changing objectives, protection of a VIP and conflicting objectives with the opposing team or teams that inevitably leads to prolonged firefights.

We are the university's airsoft team, we play every week to get together and have some fun at our home site located in the centre of Bristol. We also attend other sites further away to either try them out or go and play against other university teams. We play both for fun and competitively so if you're after a more serious side of Airsoft, we have founded the University Airsoft Championships - a national university-level competition where teams of 5 with 1 substitute player compete in incredibly fast-paced rounds of Speed.Q.B! 

UWEAS isn't all about Airsoft. We also arrange social events, times for us to all meet up and hang out as well as put on at least one annual charity-minded event. We also plan trips away for the weekend to not only play another university but also stay the night and socialize with their team. As a whole UWEAS is a great opportunity to meet new people and socialize with the added bonus of playing airsoft and having a great team backing you both on the field playing and in the library studying.
