These are the rules of the game that Airsoft players must abide by in order to play in any games at any of our sites.
The Basic Airsoft Rules of Play:
1) All participants use ONLY Airsoft guns in their games. These guns must conform to the FPS (Feet per second) limit of 350 using .20 bb, or 500FPS with 0.2bbs if a single shot (non automatic) airsoft gun is being used. We will crono all guns before the skirmish starts and may randomly test guns during play.
2) All participants MUST wear eye protection at all times! Ideally, all Airsoft players should have full face masks, long sleeve shirts, full trousers and gloves whenever they play at our site. It is strongly recommended that anyone who continues to be a problem in terms of wearing eye protection during games be banned from playing at our sites. Nobody wants to be responsible for shooting someone’s eye out. If the mask or goggles are fogging or needed to be cleaned during a game, first you must call a marshal and have them in close attendance while you crouch or lay on the ground with the face as close to the floor as possible and quickly clean the goggles.
3) If struck by an airsoft BB then the player is hit and for purposes of the game is considered "killed." This means that the player is out of the current game unless special rules are being followed. Most times when "killed" in a game there is a safe-zone where the killed player waits for the next game to begin or moves back a set distance for a set amount of time.
While playing the game, if uncertain about whether being already hit or not, then this is the benefit of the doubt is considered and the player must count himself or herself KILLED, eliminating silly arguments during a game. Whenever someone player is hit during the game, he or she must call out “HIT!” and then walk to the designated safe-zone with the weapon held high over the head with both hands. Be sure to do so since other players may assume the killed player is still in the game if not. A player that repeatedly causes problems with calling himself out should not be allowed to play any more.
Learning how to play airsoft can be a fun experience. However, there is a couple of things a player needs to know in order play the game correctly.
A. Field Conduct
i. Airsoft is a game of honour, and as players one must take faith in the fact that other players will play honestly and call themselves out when hit. As such, it is each player's responsibility to maintain a proper attitude toward all other players. Any player guilty of un-sportsmanlike conduct, including yelling, obscene behaviour, cursing, or disrupting play can be suspended from play.
ii. If another player is seen getting hit and they did not feel or hear it, do not yell at them. Just indicate to them the specific area that he or she is seen hit by a BB. If the hit player is not responsive to the indication and a second player also saw the hit, that player should respond with "I second that hit." Upon hearing this, the indicated hit player must call himself out immediately. If said player is still not responsive, a marshal must be called and the situation discussed there and then.
iii. If a team-mate gets hit, and he or she did not feel it, inform them of the hit so that he or she can call himself or herself out.
iv. Any form of physical altercation (i.e. fighting) will not be tolerated. If a player is ever involved in a fight, he will be banned for life from playing at our sites!
v. Do not walk into a game that is already in progress. If not ready by the time a game starts, wait for the next one or call a marshal to ask to be put in to the game.
vi. Do not shoot at the players in the field from the sideline.
vii. Do not intentionally block or provide cover for team-mates after being hit.
viii. Eliminated players are forbidden to communicate with those still playing. This includes giving supplies (gas, BB's, etc.) to those that are still playing. (dead men dont talk)
i. Any hit to any part of the body counts as a kill (including camel baks, etc).
ii. Hits to the gun do not count as a kill if the player has another Sidearm to use although the hit gun is out of action until they are dead.
iii. Friendly fire counts! If hit by a fellow teammate, then this is considered a KILL.
iv. When two players engage each other in combat (whether at a distance or in close quarters), and both players get hit, both players are out regardless of who said "hit" first.
v. Rubber knife hits count as a kill.
vi. Ricochets do not count.
C. Once a Player Is Hit
i. Immediately yell "hit" as loud as all the players can hear while raising both hands/gun in the air and RUN out of the field of play. It is highly recommended to have a red rag that a killed player can place on his or her head as he/she leaves the field to indicate a kill.
ii. Do not shoot after being hit, while leaving the field, or as a spectator.
iii. In some cases other behaviors (i.e. playing dead, standing in place, etc.) will be agreed upon before a game starts. In these cases, observe the appropriate conduct diligently.
i. Asking for a surrender and surrendering is optional, but it is highly encouraged to ask for a surrender when a player is within 5-10 feet of the other player and his or her back is to the surrendering player, or under similar situations. Please treat others with respect.
ii. If a different surrender rule is declared prior to a game then it must be followed.
We reserve the right to change these rules without notice.
