    Scenario Maps are available at Respawns; it is advisable for each team to quickly discuss a strategy for completing their objective. Team communication will be vital in most missions. Paper Maps are also available for every Site we run - Please ask a Marshal if you require one.

    All missions involve firefights - the rules of engagement are:

    Aim your weapon! No blind firing, 2 Second bursts only!
    SINGLE SHOT WHEN CLOSE!

    When you are fired upon and the BB's make contact with you it is classed as a "HIT".
    It does not matter how hard it hits you it still counts.
    Light cover such as branches, twigs, mesh, chicken wire etc will not protect you and is not classed as a ricochet.

    What happens when you are hit?

    When Hit YOU MUST put your Weapon in the air and SHOUT "HIT!"
    Make it obvious! You will be less likely to be shot at again as you walk away.
    Make your way to your team designated deadzone!

    No shooting at players with their weapon in the air.

    Dead Players CANNOT talk! Do not communicate while walking back to your Deadzone.

    Weapon hits DO NOT count.
    Ricochets DO NOT count.
    Headshots DO count.
    Friendly Fire DOES count.
    NO OVERKILLING!

    All players MUST take their hits at all times!

    No shooting into the Opposition Team Deadzone!

    CHEATING OF ANY KIND is FORBIDDEN
    Any player who is caught "cheating" will be asked to leave the Site immediately.

    Rubber Knives and Bang Kill

    On Skirmish Days - if you do not possess a Rubber Training Knife you may "tap" your opponent on the Shoulder while shouting "Knife KIll!"
    This will be sufficient to simulate a Knife Kill.

    Bang kill/Mercy challenge is not recommended if you get the drop on someone, single shot them to an area that causes as little pain as possible!
