Oh my. I played paintball once and never again; that shit hurts. Is Airsoft worse? If so what the fuck? In paintball you're out once you get splattered, but here do you actually have to incapacitate the opponent like you would in regular armed combat by shooting them until they're down?

The guns apparently shoot hard plastic beads. Their attraction is, unlike paintball guns, they can be made to look like real weapons.
I'm guessing the victim quit the assailant's team and burned the team patch? So Mister Shitstain, here decided to shoot him in the back with an automatic rapid-fire Airsoft gun?
apparently you can modify the motors to make the BBs fly much faster and hurt more, but only someone that takes this kiddy shit way too seriously would...oh...nevermind.
I think the shooter was kicked off the team and then they burned his patch, but I'm not sure. What I am sure of is that all parties involved are probably pretty awful.
Which is why this is some grade A, top shelf slapstick.
stupid kids being internet-awful is different from a stupid adult doing something that is considered assault.
Also note that the shooter actually went to the trouble of making a new Youtube channel specifically to upload this.
Airsoft is generally lower energy than paintball. Paintball is 2-10 J, Airsoft is limited to 4 J at most. However, depending on the rules of the particular game, Airsoft events can include full auto guns.
Solro, internet wisdom is that the shooter is 15 or 16 and his victim is 14, it's all stupid kids.
Anyhow we used to shoot airsoft guns indoors at my last apartment (granted not high powered like this) and they aren't that big a deal. They're very light, you can shoot the low powered pistols at a window from 15 feet away and it will bounce off like nothing. This probably stung pretty bad and left a bruise and was a shitty thing to do but not so shitty that the whole situation isn't hilarious to watch.
What OZ said. The kid is hurting but he'll live, and really, when you think about it, a youth with no bruises or scars is a youth wasted.
He knew the risks when he took the patch.
As far as risk of lasting damage, I would say this is in the same ballpark as, but lesser than, a particularly severe indian burn or purple nurple, and not nearly as serious as an atomic wedgie, which can result in permanent testicular damage or even death:
EH, there are also conflicting reports that the patch was, in fact, his, and that he burned it after leaving or being kicked off the team the shooter was on.
I still don't get how this gameplay works though. Assuming most people use single shots, and the worst pain would be something like a bad indian burn, what's to stop a game of, say, CTF from going on forever? Laser tag just turns off your gun and you're out for the round and you've got a paint splat on you so people know you're out, but if you're in some sort of armor, and can withstand the pain, via adrenaline, which most kids can; I have enough atomic wedgies, indian burns and split open foreheads to last a lifetime but give me one now and I'd stop playing.
I dunno, at least laser tag and paintball show the consequences, whereas this and video games just train our future soldiers to believe that if you get shot ten times and then go duck around something for a minute you'll be fine again..
If you get hit you're supposed to leave play I guess, but it's honor system so probably nobody does.
The heads turn left, then right, then left again.

This is why people play paintball instead. A real man looks his enemy in the eye when taking his revenge if paintball players have beef we settle it on the field not by spraying someone in the back like a pussy over petty kid shit you aren't in the military nor is your "team" some hard ass biker gang who slits throats when disrepected. Just another of the many reasons to LOL at airsoft.

This reminds me of an unrelated story.

I have a replica .44 Airsoft pistol from the mid-80s. Only shoots one plastic pellet at a time, but that sucker can break glass. I'd never shoot it at anyone.
It has a clip with bullets in it. The bullets are hollow, and you put the white plastic pellets into the tip of each bullet. After each shot, the gun ejects the empty bullet. It looks 100 percent real, except that you then have to manually push the magazine forward to recock it and load the next bullet from the clip.
.45 1911 replica, I meant to say. No orange tip, so it is basically a "suicide by cop" device.
A perfect treatise on tribalism and the inherent aggression in the human species.
No, we don't get to go to the stars. We will stay on earth mauling each other for any perceived disrespect. Forever. These people in the video are us.

The crowd didn't righteously tie the shooter down and retaliate, so can we at least go to the Oort Cloud?
after watching the video of the patch being burned, this kid deserves everything he got. which was basically nothing.

Out of the loop with regards to these guns but holy shit I didn't know they had fully automatic ones for the kiddies to play with. Nasty shit man.
We got ourselves a future Responsible Owner right there...
Oh, and my bad for the resubmit - when I was watching it earlier it said the video was private, but it's back up now.
I think you resubmitted right after I did and mine just got voted up really fast.
