This release, discharge and indemnity shall be deemed to extend to:
a) Any death, injury, loss or damage arising out of the supply of faulty or inadequate equipment.
- Safety first : Never remove your mask on the field for any reason. If you see that someone has lost their mask on the field, DON'T shoot. Yell "Blind man" so other players are aware. Always use barrel plugs or barrel socks after play and keep your mask on until all barrel plugs are in place.
- Don't be a jerk: Always respect your team mates & opponents. Nopushing, shoving, or any physical contact at all. Don't bonus ball just for amusement. It only takes one solid hit for a player to be out. Shooting players multiple times unnecessarily is an easy way to discourage beginners from coming back.
- Remember paintball is a team sport: Don't act like you own the field; give everyone a chance to get in on the action. Solid teamwork will win you more games than a focus on individual glory.
- Mind your fire: Never blind fire, if you can't see what you're shooting at, don't shoot. You could accidentally hit the referee or local wildlife.
- Never shoot point blank: Paintballs can hurt at close range, even with protective gear! Allow opponents the opportunity to surrender if you have a clear shot within 10 ft. If the player doesn't surrender, aim for a shoe, gear or padded area.
- Don't cheat: When you're hit, you're hit. Don't wipe paint off & keep playing; this is considered cheating. Hits a quarter size or bigger on anything you carry (gear,mask,marker,hopper e.t.c) count. If you're unsure that you're hit, signal for a referee or yell "paint check"
- Clear the field when you're hit: Raise your arms and marker so other players know that you've been hit. Quickly make your way to a safe zone to avoid being caught in the crossfire. Never fire after you've been hit.
- Respect the Referee: The referee's ruling is the final word. Signal for the referee to judge if there are any disputes during game play. The referee can eject you from the game for breaking any rules on the field.
- Be a good sport: We know it's a competition and you want to win. Strategize the game, but don't get too aggressive to the point that you risk injury. Congratulate the winners with a "good game" even if you're unhappy that you lost.
