opposing players out is poor
sportsmanship and your side will be

supervisors will immediately signal a
pause in the game until the affected
player pronounces "All Clear", at which
point supervisors will signal the game
to continue. In the absence of game
supervisors, nearby players should wave
their red rags in the air to indicate a
blind man call. Once the affected player
pronounces "All Clear", players should
return their red rags to their pockets
and yell "All Clear."
2.3 NO BLIND FIRING.
You must be able to see with your own
eyes where your gun is pointed (no using
mirrors or devices to shoot around
kills with a rubber knife (such as cold
steel) are allowed. A swiping motion,
or tap on an opponent's shoulder, is
allowed (and is considered a kill?).
Stabbing motions with knives are
forbidden, as are motions towards the
face, throat, or groin of any player on
No other materials
knives are made of, such as ABS or wood
will be allowed.
2.5 HIT RULES
2.5.1 If a
player is hit ANYWHERE: You’re KIA. Gun
and gear hits count. (Exception, if
playing by medic rules 2.5.3).
KIA by pellet/rocket/grenade/mine, or
otherwise wounded/removed from combat,
players should immediately do the
your hand and yell hit, wave your red
rag above your head momentarily, then
tie it around/through the front sight of
your rifle or attach it to your head in
a SECURE fashion. Expect to be hit
multiple times while doing so - in the
chaos of combat fellow players rarely
have split-second trigger control.
b. Assume a
non-combative posture and quickly remove
yourself from the area (no waiting).
to your designated respawn point.
your red rag to your pocket/pouch once
your respawn time is up.
keep in mind most players cannot hear
you. Your raised arm, and red rag is the
first and most important sign of being
ballcaps are not acceptable substitutes
for red rags. The red rag rule is
intentionally "inconvenient" so players
will not forget. If it helps, add a
patch of velcro to your red rag.
playing with medics, a hit on the arm or
leg will constitute as a wound. Players
must still yell
HIT, loud and clear, raising
his/her hand in the air while the other
hand gets the red rag out. After the
red rag has been placed on their head,
they can then call for a medic. Medics
(assigned before the day’s game play)
will have 2 minutes to get to the
wounded operator, and place a bandage
around his/her arm to heal the operator,
allowing them back into the game. Any
hit on that operator at that point will
be a kill shot, and the operator will
need to go back to their respawn to get
back in the game.
wounded operator can be moved by a
teammate or medic to a safe location, to
heal that operator.
2.6 "BANG BANG!"
2.6.1 If a
player enters a close range situation
where firing his weapon could result in
unnecessary harm to an opposing player,
AND he/she has the target "dead to
rights," use the "Bang, Bang!" rule.
"Bang! Bang!" is a safety call ONLY. It
is NOT a
way of killing someone tactically.
2.6.3 If a
player says, "Bang! Bang!" to you, you
should honor the call and immediately
pull out your red rag. If said player
was particularly sneaky, it is
appropriate to honor the kill by
"quietly dying" to not give away that
not use "Bang Bang!" in a situation
where it could be disputed by a fellow
player (no frontal assault “Bang
Bangs”). If you do not have the target
"100% no chance of survival/dead" from
the side, or from behind, closer than 20
feet from the opposed player, do not say
EX 1: You
see multiple players from a distance;
run though the group yelling "Bang!
Bang!" at everyone.
EX 2: You
are hidden behind a bush, and opposed
player approaches from the front. You
call out "Bang! Bang!" before he/she
EX 3: You
come around a bush and immediately face
to face with another player less than 20
feet from you. DO use PARLAY (2.7)
two players encounter each other at 20
feet or less in the forward arc, one
should call "PARLAY" and back off 20
paces. This is a safety call to avoid
point blank exchanges.
2.7.2 Calling "PARLAY" means you have
surprised an opposing player in a
dangerous situation and should
immediately back off.
2.7.3 DO NOT
place yourself in a position where an
opposed player's only choice is to
accidentally stumble into you and force
a parlay call.

immediately return to their designation
respawn area. Do not wait unless you
have an emergency which prevents you
respawns are a “No fire zone”. There
will be no firing any weapons within 100
feet of the main respawn. Main respawns
will be clearly marked using yellow
caution tape. When players are KIA, and
use the main respawn, it will take no
less than 3 minutes to respawn back into
2.8.3 Respawn camping is not allowed. If you
respawn camp (setting up position to
shoot your opponent as they leave the
100 foot respawn safe zone), you will
cost your team points, and may be asked
to leave the game.
2.8.4 Mobile respawns are respawns not marked
by caution tape, and respawn time is 1
minute, and the respawn time will begin
by touching the respawn flag. Each side
will have 1 mobile respawn to use for
the game. Anyone in the mobile respawn
area without a red rag on is considered
a live player, and can be engaged. To
use a mobile respawn, your team must
secure an area for no less than 5
minutes, and once moved to that area,
the mobile respawn, can’t be moved again
for a minimum of 20 minutes. Mobile
respawns can be destroyed, by simply
removing the enemy’s flag from its
stand, and laying it on the ground. If
a team destroys an enemy mobile respawn,
it cannot be used for 1 hour, and must
be returned to its owning teams main
respawn before it can be used again.

Trees, bushes, shallow ditches, and
other players are NOT hard cover.
Grenades blast radius is determined from
the point of landing. Hand Grenade BBs DO NOT have
to strike a player to count as a kill.

the point at which it rests, unless it
strikes a vehicle.
