Honesty is key to a great battle experience. If you are hit by a dart, raise your gun above your head and move to a designated medical bench for the remainder of that game. Games are designed with short time limits to minimize wait between games. Take advantage of the time to re-load your gun.
If you shoot an opponent, call your shot. Referees will be moving about the battle zone helping to call hits.
If you are not certain you hit someone, then do not call the shot as a hit. If you are certain, then call the shot.
Cheating ruins the game for every player directly and indirectly, so do not do it. Arguing about hits also causes the game to come to a halt and ruins the fun.
No going outside the battle zones.
Only Nerf Guns may be used-no water or other weapon types.
Modified Nerf Guns are allowed but none using C02 or green gas.
During time outs (called only by referees) - stop all shooting.
Do not shoot or throw anything into the nets, or out of bounds.
No whining, complaining, or arguing - this will result in you sitting out.
Do not throw or drop guns - they break easily.
Help collect equipment and darts at the end of battle.
You are restricted to your weapons for each battle.
No intentional face or head shots.
No physical contact with other players - no pushing, pulling, wrestling, hitting, etc. No wrestling weapons away from people.
You must always wear eye protection during battles - if you are caught without eye protection you will be out of the battle until the next one starts.
Respect the equipment and battle zone barriers. Players are not allowed to climb or hang on barriers and nets.
Hits on weapons do not count.
There is no friendly fire - shooting allies on purpose or accidentally does not count as a hit.
You cannot throw darts - they must be shot from a gun.
Do not load or use damaged darts - they will absolutely jam your gun. Do not throw away damaged darts as they can be repaired later (throw them in the damaged darts bucket in the assembly area).
Try not to damage darts - avoid stepping on them, avoid stuffing them roughly into bags, cases, or pockets - they damage easily.
