Noisemakers: Bike Horn will be used at the top of the hill or any area of the field where there is a large firefight. If you hear the noisemakers, cease-fire and hold your position. Teams are trying to remove their eliminated players from the field.

If a player leaves the field for any reason, elimination, air refill, paint refill, repair to equipment, restroom break you are considered eliminated. Please wait at dead box to respawn.

Special Rules: Re: Tanks, Juggernaut, etc,…

SURRENDURING: If someone asks you to surrender to avoid bunkering you, you are out. In a situation where the Tank or Juggernaut knows they could possibly shoot you at close range and would rather avoid it than risk the close range shot, we would rather they surrender you.

GRENADES and Paintballs: The Tank and Juggernaut cannot be eliminated by paintball shots. Over shooting them is really just a novelty for you. Keep in mind that staying in the area and deciding to shoot at them can put you in a position to be eliminated by them or a grenade/rocket intended for them.  While they require a direct hit anyone else within the 15ft radius is eliminated.

Each team will get maps to let them know where to look for items they need to complete their Mission, items will be marked by their teams flag. Each team MAY NOT TOUCH, MOVE or CAPTURE the other teams mission items/objectives.
