Respawn, elimination and medic rules will change from game to game
A hit on a weapon (marker, side arm or knife) will render it useless and must have a barrel sock put on it. A side arms holster counts as part of the weapon if it is holstered. This does not count as a hit.
If you know the paintball hit you, take the hit even if it did not break.
If you are in doubt about a hit, take your hit.
If hit, put your band on to show you are out. No band means you are still in play and will be engaged. You are not allowed to move until your band is on.
If wearing a Gilly Suit a hit anywhere on the suit counts no matter if it breaks or not.
If you are touched by an enemy's knife it counts as a kill and you must respawn.
Medics if hit need to respawn at a designated spot
Rope system applies. (The medic needs to tie a knot on your piece of rope) Number of revivals will depend on game played.
If the game is not an elimination and your allotted medic revivals have been used you need to respawn
A player shot in the head or body can't be revived and needs to respawn
A player has a choice of respawning or being healed by the medic.
If a player wishes to be healed they must put on an orange band. He may not engage or talk until the band is on.
If a player then decides to respawn they must change their band to a yellow death band
A person with an orange band on can be shot again then must respawn
A person with an orange band on may use their side arm and may talk
A person with an orange band on may not move but must sit down where they were shot even if its in the open.
A person with an orange band on may be dragged to safety by any one on their squad.
Respawn areas will assigned at the beginning of each game
Each respawn area will have a timer. When you reach the respawn area you may start the timer.
Once the alloted time has passed you may re-join the game.
If other players come to respawn before the first person waiting to respawns allotted time expires they will respawn into the game when the first persons time expires. (These players need to have touched the timer, if they don't touch the timer before it runs out they need to restart the time and wait the alloted time.)
Remember to remove band after respawning, if you don't you need to go respawn again
