Airsoft Smoke Grenades

A smoke grenade is a canister-type grenade used as a signaling device, target or position marker, or to create a screen for smokescreens. Smoke grenades are commonly used in airsoft games to indicate hit players and provide cover when attacking or retreating. Airsoft grenades typically release pyrotechnic gas rather than actual smoke.

How Do Airsoft Smoke Grenades Work?

When released, the gases within the grenade expand rapidly, filling up the space inside the canister and pushing out the plug at the end. This results in a loud popping noise and a cloud of smoke being emitted from the grenade.

The smoke cloud is usually white, but some grenades produce different colors of smoke. In Airsoft, white smoke is typically used to indicate a hit player, while colored smoke is used to mark positions or signal teammates.

Why Use Airsoft Smoke Grenades?

Airsoft smoke grenades can be incredibly useful for many reasons. For one, they can be used to create cover when attacking or retreating. The smoke cloud generated by the grenade can provide concealment for players and allow them to move without being seen.

Additionally, smoke grenades can be used to signal teammates or mark positions. For example, if you need reinforcements, you can throw a smoke grenade to let your team know where you are.

Types Of Smoke Grenades

There are a few types of smoke grenade used when playing Airsoft. These are as follows:

Blue Smoke Grenades

Blue smoke grenades are typically used to mark positions. For example, if you need to indicate where your team is located, you can throw a blue smoke grenade.

White Smoke Grenades

White smoke grenades are used to indicate hit players. In most cases, when a player is hit by a BB, they will call out and then raise a white flag. Once this happens, any nearby teammates can throw a white smoke grenade to confirm the hit.

Red Smoke Grenades

Red smoke grenades are commonly used in emergency situations. If you need to signal for help, you can throw a red smoke grenade to let your team know where you are.
