2. Barrel plug MUST be in when entering and leaving field,
and in rest area.
3. All guns must be chronographed for 280 fps and under.
All field guns are preset, however the referee may request
to check the velocity at any time.
4. No shots within 20 feet. Call “POINT BLANK.”
5. Gun shots count. Friendly fire counts. Head shots count
but are discouraged.
6. A Paint splatter bigger than a quarter is a hit and you’re
out. When a player is tagged he or she must yell, “I’m out”,
put his or her barrel plug in, hold marker above head, and
walk directly off the field to the designated rest area.
If said player is carrying a team flag he or she must drop
it. Failure to acknowledge a direct hit or wiping off paint
in the field will get a player suspended for the next game.
Get caught twice, and you are done for the day! Remember
paintball is an “honor sport”! If everyone plays by the
rules, everyone has fun. Cheaters ruin everyone’s fun.
7. If you think you’ve tagged your opponent and your opponent
is not leaving the game call for a “Paint-check”. The judge,
at his own discretion, will check the player for paint and
may declare the player neutral. A neutral player can not
shoot or be shot at, and is in effect an inactive player.
A judge will decide if the neutral player will continue
to play or is out. The overuse of calling for a paint-check
to assist you in strategy will get you called out.

assistance, however it is not mandatory. Game is still in
