Airsoft is much better than paintball in my opinion. I enjoy airsoft because it requires more planning and need more team work when on the field. You also have a larger choice of guns and you can put attachments on your gun if you want. Most guns are almost perfect replicas of their combat zone counterparts. Most high quality guns are made of metal, polymer, or even wood which allows them to be more rugged. The metal and wood guns are worth your money but cost more, while plastic and polymer guns are cheaper but are more prone to damage and breaking. Heavier BB's will also cost more but have less of a chance of jamming your gearbox, and are more accurate.
Along with those you also need better masks and accessories. You can buy scopes, grips, and other accessories that you want but don't need. You can also purchase masks that don't fog up, gillie suits to camouflage yourself, and a vest to carry more ammo. All these will help you in battle while also making you look like a pro. I personally prefer gun attachments rather than tactical gear because it allows my guns to be more versatile while making it look more hi-tech.
Overall airsoft is a great sport that tests how you think and how you play. I love it because it makes you feel like a real militarry
