Weapon Control -  Due to the layout of the CQB Site and the fact that there is no minimum engagement range, you need to be in complete control of your weapon systems at all times. The following rules are for the safety of you and your fellow players;

1. When firing rifles, the Butt of the weapon must be firmly seated in the shoulder so that you can look down the barrel or through the sights. 

 

2. When firing a pistol, you must aim through the sights.

 

3. You only shoot at clearly identified targets, No "Spray and Pray"

4. No Shooting into the Air. This puts our neighbours at risk and is extremely dangerous.  Instant dismissal.

 

5. No Duel wielding

6. No Jumping up to fire over cover "Bunny Shooting"

7. No Pre-firing - Do not fire and walk in behind your shot, just shoot at clearly identified opponents.

SHOOTING INTO THE AIR – Any player seen to fire there weapon directly into the air will be ejected from the site due to us having people working around the outside of the site.

 

NON-HIT TAKING – Action to be taken are as follows:

If you believe you have someone who is not taking their hits,

1. Up your rate of fire (remaining on single shot), Aim for the squishy dangly parts, arms, and legs.

2. Call them out - If you still believe the player is not calling their hits, you can calmly and politely call them out and point to where you believe you are hitting.

If someone calls you out for non-hit taking, unless you can clearly see where they are missing, take the hit, walk back, and respawn. If you can clearly see they are missing and their weapon is not performing as they expect, do a large wave across the body indicating they are missing and point to where their shots are hitting.

3. Inform a Marshal - if you believe that someone is deliberately cheating, tell a marshal so the team can investigate. 

If you are caught deliberately cheating, you will be sent home.

 

GOB OFF, GET OFF – Aggressive behaviour towards another player is not tolerated both physically and verbally. Lose your temper, lose your right to play. You will be asked to unload and head to the safe zone and if deemed suitable join the following set of games at the discretion of the senior management.

 

OVERKILL – as soon as a player acknowledges a hit STOP FIRING, please bear in mind that just because you call ‘HIT’ the remainder of the BB’s are already on their way. Overkilling will result in you being removed from site.

WAYS TO END YOUR DAY EARLY

MAN DOWN – ‘MAN DOWN’ is the keyword to stop all gaming on the entire site. If you or someone else is in any type of trouble or danger call ‘MAN DOWN’ immediately and point out where the problem is to the marshals.

If you hear ‘MAN DOWN’ and do not see the problem:

STOP, REPEAT THE CALL, LAY YOUR WEAPONS ON THE GROUND AND PLACE YOUR HANDS IN THE AIR.
