Airsoft emerged in the 1970s when the first equipment was made in Japan. By the 1980s, “survival games” became popular across Asia, offering a competitive but ultimately safe hobby.
Later, airsoft equipment became available in the U.K. before spreading to the rest of the world. Today, it’s a popular recreational activity worldwide.
Some fields even use airsoft equipment for safety training and other educational purposes since airsoft tools closely resemble real weapons.

How to Create a Cool Airsoft Team Name
If none of the names on our list are perfect for your team, use the following tips to brainstorm more ideas.
Be sure to take input from your team or put the final few options to a vote to make sure all of your members feel motivated for battle!
- Define your team’s purpose. How does your team play? Are you an aggressive team, or do you use more of a stealthy strategy? Use your team’s style to inform your team name.
- Choose or create an acronym. If you like a phrase that’s too long to work as your team name or you’re stuck for ideas, try creating an acronym. Shorten a phrase that spells a cool word or choose a word that starts with the first letter of each team member’s name. For example, if you like the phrase “Special Combat Airsoft Regiment,” you could call your team “SCAR” for short.
- Choose an animal mascot. Choose a favorite, intimidating, or strange animal, depending on your team’s preference. Create a name and patch using your new mascot! You can also get inspiration from our list of animal team names.
- Choose an interesting word phrase in Latin. Airsoft is a combat-oriented activity, and a lot of military groups use Latin mottos or phrases. Use one of these phrases for your team name, or look up another cool Latin word or phrase. Our list’s examples of Audentes Fortuna Iuvat and Alea Iacta Est fall into this category, and we also have a dedicated list of Latin team names.
