We are currently in the process of updating our rules and safety briefs online; here are some of the most important rules, as well as answers to frequently asked questions.

Safety Brief Outline:

STAGING AREA

  • Rifles on safe
  • No dry-firing in the safe area
    • Players are not wearing eye protection
    • All shooting can be done in the shooting range area or on-field
  • Barrel covers on all rifles
    • avoids accident discharge of firearm and BB
  • Magazines out in the staging area
    • avoids accidental discharge of BB
  • Ensure you are cleaning up your staging area after games
  • Ensure you are looking after your own belongings

ON-FIELD & IN-GAME

  • all game briefs take place on the field
  • barrel covers can come off
  • avoid shooting in the direction of gathering players
  • treat players with respect
  • communicate effectively, not aggressively

REFEREES:

  • will be in game, in the action to better see how games are playing out
  • will be in action to inform players of non-hit calling

RULES OF ENGAGEMENT:

  • PLAYERS ARE EXPECTED TO BE WEARING FULL-SEAL GOGGLES WITH ANZI RATING
    • WHERE DO WE FIND THIS RATING? INSIDE GOGGLES NEAR LENS)
    • BALLISTIC GOGGLES ARE FINE

We recommend that all new players wearing goggles, wear lower face protection as well; this avoids potential mouth injuries – not required

  • SNIPERS: 100-150ft from target
  • SNIPERS WITH CERTIFICATION: further back at 300+ ft from target
  • ALL OTHER PLAYERS: no minimum engagement distance

*AVOID SHOOTING PLAYERS POINT-BLANK; THIS CAN CAUSE SERIOUS INJURIES*

  • NO BLIND-FIRING:
    • Players must always be looking down their line of sight to aim at a target
    • A player should never hold their gun above their head, under their legs, or around an object or corner without being behind the gun
    • This is dangerous and creates dangerous play
  • GRENADES:
    • bb hit, bb kill.
    • BEHIND AN OBJECT ON THE FIELD? YOU ARE SAFE!
  • FULL-AUTO: is allowed
  • MEELE WEAPONS: are not permitted (covid-19)
  • DO NOT AIM FOR PEOPLES FACES:
    • aim for a location they will feel, but one that will not hurt them
    • do not shoot someone in a way you wouldn’t want to be shot
  • CALL YOUR HITS!
    • airsoft is an honour sport
    • takes only one hit to kill you and send you back to respawn
    • when in doubt call your hit – you may call a ricochet hit but at least it shows you do call it
      • if you know it was a ricochet than you are fine to stay in game
    • if someone isn’t calling their hits, but you get hit, you call it!
    • see a ref if you believe another player is not playing honourably
  • PLAYER DISPUTES WILL NOT BE TOLERATED
    • see a ref if you have any issues with another player
