Chronographs are used before games to test all weapons present. Any weapons that test too high will not be allowed in play. No exceptions will be made, please research upgrades and how they affect your weapon before purchasing or installing them.
All chronograhing will be with .20g BB’s.
The ref must verify chronograph and will tag all acceptable weapons. Any untagged weapons will not be allowed on the field. Chronographing will begin at 10:30 unless otherwise posted.
All players who participate in CQB should understand that they will be engaging targets anywhere from 25 feet to even 5 feet away and because of that, they may take painful hits. We recommend full masks, long sleeves, long pants, gloves, and hats/helmets be worn for CQB to avoid welts or breaking the skin. “BANG” rules is 10 feet in castle and CQB, however players may surrender if they wish at any time to the opposing force to leave game play without any harm.
When you are too close in range to be comfortable taking a shot, you can call out “BANG” on the player in your sights. Any clean shots with no cover fewer than 15 feet are good candidates for safety kills. Do not call it unless the kill is already a given. Always honor safety kills when they are called on you just like honoring a “HIT”. Safety kills can only be called on one individual at a time, not on entire groups. “BANG” must be said loudly, as to simulate actually firing. Silence can only be maintained if you can tag the other player out. You must be able to point your weapon and call “BANG” on every person if there is more than one.
Players are allowed to “tap out” other players with rubber or plastic knives made for safe Airsoft use. Touch your opponent with your rubber knife and simply tell them that they’re dead. Contact should be no more than a tap; there’s absolutely no slashing, throwing, hitting or martial arts physical contact allowed. Contact must be made with a rubber or plastic replica of a knife, sticks and other objects do not work. DO NOT tap another player in the head, neck, face or groin. Players eliminated by this method should try and acknowledge their hit/death silently.
Anyone acting as a sniper with an upgraded bolt action rifle over 400 fps (1.5j) should carry a sidearm that can be used alternately when engaging targets closer than about 100 feet. If you have no sidearm and find yourself too close to the opposing force, you may either a) call a safety kill, b) wait until they move to a safe range or c) relocate to a safe range. Do not fire at targets closer than 100 feet.
This is yelled out whenever a non-player enters the battlefield, or when a player enters the battlefield without eye protection. All players are expected to echo blind man so that everyone on the field hears it, and upon hearing it each player is expected to sit down and wait until “Game on” is called to continue the game. If necessary, game coordinators will explain the game to the non-participants.
