Come Play Airsoft in Hobart, Indiana!
Airsoft at Blastcamp Is
About as Real as It Gets!
Airsoft is a fun sport that allows players to act out realistic combat-themed scenarios. Players eliminate each other by “hitting” or “tagging” other players using realistic military-replica airsoft weapons. Airsoft replicas shoot round 6mm plastic BBs.
In addition to private groups, we also offer smaller, walk-on play games as well as themed, full-day light mil-sim “ops” events for hundreds of players.
We’ve been running airsoft ops at Blastcamp for nearly two decades—the longest in the area. Airsofters love the realism that comes from playing on our historic location. Adding to the realism are our multiple types of terrain, including close quarter battles, woods, and open areas.
It’s not just Airsoft, it’s Blastcamp!

Who Can Play Airsoft?
Almost anyone can enjoy airsoft, as long as participants follow the safety protocols put in place and come into the game with a good attitude. And if you’re a novice, no worries; even the veterans were once noobies. With practice and determination, anyone can become a proficient player over time.
Airsoft Walk-on Play
These are shorter, quicker games in a designated section of the field. Walk-on play features mission-based objectives that incorporate props, and we have hundreds of different game modes. Once players get registered, they get a safety briefing and get put on teams; then a ref takes them out to the field. Cost is $30 per person; Tippmann rentals available at $30 per day and includes ammo.

First time paintball today with family. Couldn't have had a better time. Definitely plan on engaging in the games to enjoy the experience. If not, stay home and play bingo. Getting hit stings a little. Wow! What an adrenaline rush! What a great experience! Looking forward to doing this again! Thanks Blast Camp, friendly crew, and ref!
I've been a customer for 30 years. Blast Camp gets better each year, with improvements and investment made by the owner to make it a great place to play. Paintball and airsoft events, fun big games, solid referees. Good place to take a group of kids for a birthday party in a private group. Recommended.
Great place to get some interesting physical activity in or have a group party. The staff are helpful and are serious about both fun and safety, and are always thinking of new ways to keep players entertained. They keep their store well stocked and bring in interesting vendors for their events.
Very fun! Went here with some coworkers and did a private group, definitely affordable for what you get. Large variety of different areas to have matches in, and a lot of different game types. I cant wait to go back!
Best paintball field in the Midwest, Virgil is an amazing field owner, and the reffing staff is the most professional staff I have seen in my 20+ yrs of paintball! Do yourself a favor and check out Blastcamp paintball and airsoft and get to play on a real historic NIKE MISSLE BASE!?
Blastcamp is by far the most family-friendly, safety conscience place I have ever played Paintball. The history makes the place cool the staff makes it exceptional. The personalized service is world-class! I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
