  8. No going inside buildings, hopping fences, or climbing onto roofs or trees.

  10. Moderators reserve the right to ban any player for misconduct. Moderators will decide what is and isn’t misconduct.
  11. No transportation other than by foot may be used.
  12. If you experience problems with another player, witness cheating, or have any disagreements with another player, please let a moderator know PRIVATELY. Problems will be addressed in a discreet and orderly manner. We don’t want accusations flying and tempers flaring. We will try to address all concerns, but remember this is a game, and if we hear someone complaining about everything, we’ll be less likely to be able to differentiate legitimate concerns from whiny nitpicking.
Equipment Rules:
  1. No Blasters can look real. This includes Black or silver. Painted blasters will be assessed on a case by case basis.
  2. Modded Blasters are allowed. Modified blasters are subject to approval and restrictions by host(s) and must be cleared first.
  3. Stock ammunition only. If you can buy it on the shelf and it's approved for children, we'll probably allow it (this includes Kooshand FVJs). Still we reserve the right to ban  any equipment.
  4. Shields and melee weapons are not allowed unless a game type specifies otherwise.
  5. You are not allowed to take or use anyone’s equipment, unless authorized to do so.
