Valorant Airsoft Guns
What about Valorant Airsoft Guns equivalents, over the next few days I’m going to break down the Guns of Valorant and try and find a Valorant Airsoft Guns equivalent. Most of the guns in Valorant take a future concept of an already established Gun. As such not all airsoft guns are going to match out of the box if you have a better example leave us a comment below!
CQ – SBR Stinger
- Type: SMG
- Sub Type: Full Auto / 4 Burst
- Cost: 1000
- Magazine Capacity: 20
- Fire Rate: 18
- Wall Penetration: Low
The Stinger in-game has a low damage per shot, absurdly high spread which leads to lower accuracy. However, the stinger is very cheap, has a high rate of fire which leads to extremely high damage per second. It can easily kill any player near-instantly at close range.
The Valorant design for the CQ-SBR Stinger appears to be based on the LWRC-SMG 45 prototype with the trigger guard shape based on the B&T APC9.
Seeing as there currently isn’t an SMG 45 airsoft variant, a good airsoft starting point may be an H&K UMP. The Elite Force HK Heckler & Koch UMP Automatic Airsoft rifle is available from Amazon and a bunch of other good retailers.
The Stock would need replacing along with a handguard, you would also need to remove the rails, however, this is as close as you could currently get to the Stinger in an airsoft gun. With the Elite Force HK Heckler & Koch UMP Reviewing reasonably well.
- Type: SMG
- Sub Type: Full Auto
- Cost: 1600
- Magazine Capacity: 30
- Fire Rate: 13.33 / 12
- Wall Penetration: Medium
The Spectre is a Mid-priced submachine gun. It is outfitted with a silencer that reduces the range of the weapon’s audio profile. It is more accurate, then the Stinger, kicks considerably less, and has a higher magazine capacity However it does less DPS due to its slower fire rate.
The Spectre seems to be based on that of the SIG MPX, A handguard fore-end based on the H&K G36C. It has the front sight aperture Diopter rear sight and cocking tube above the handguard from the H&K MP5.
Valorant Airsoft SMG
To Build an airsoft version of Valorant Spectre you could go one of three ways. You could use a SIG SAUER MCX by Cybergun, This gun can be harder to get hold of nowadays and would need major changes to look similar to the Spectre. The other option would be to start with a MP5 such as the Heckler and Koch H&K Competition MP5 SD6 SMG AEG Airsoft AEG by Umarex
This Mp5 would, of course, need changes to the handguard.
The other option would be a Elite Force HK Heckler & Koch G36 C AEG. With this you would need to remove the top rail and again make changes to the Rails and stock but the front end would be very similar.
Whichever option you choose you will need a Triangle-based suppressor and there are currently a few options for this! ASG Currently make an ATS Mini suppressor which looks similar.
Or you could 3d print your own, with 3d printers currently creating Triangle shaped suppressors such as ones on Thingiverse.
That was a quick rundown of the Valorant Airsoft Guns SMG Equivalent. Unlike some of the other fun Comic and Video game Such a the Deadpool Desert Eagles. It’s still too early to see Airsoft Replicas that match the Game guns. Time will tell what gets released, check out Airsoft informer for all of the news!
