Face masks though we prefer players without face masks it is your face, but discreet ones please
Helmet / Gun cameras etc , though we have nothing against folks getting a camera out and filming a little of the game by hand or taking odd photos (We actively encourage it) but we don't want any helmet cameras or GO Pro cameras unless they are scrimmed up out of the way.
Someone came up with the idea of inserting one inside a field dressing.
Helmets - we prefer players in helmets but we don't force you to we know Brit Paras etc will wear berets and other troops may also sport them.
Bolt-action Rifles unlimited
Submachine guns - 200 per person per life. This is a maximum and represents the most you can carry. Ammo cannot be carried over from past lives or stockpiled.
Support weapons - 3000 per life. NOTE - in order to get another full 3000, the gun itself must be at the re-spawn point
You can carry around as much ammo as you like but you should only mag-up and use the designated amount.
HITS:BB hits on any part of the body or weapon count, Ricochets don't.
Once hit you must drop to the ground and indicate loudly that you've been hit. We'd prefer a good theatrical scream rather than just a "hit"
As this is a COVID Friendly game the Medic rules are slightly changed. Once hit call for a Sani or Medic. When a team mate comes over they need to be 1.5m`s away from you. They then count slowly to 10 and then you can then apply your own bandage. You can now re-join the action.
A second hit after being medic'd will kill and require you to impersonate a corpse until the firefight around you is over. Don't immediately rise from the dead like Lazarus and wander off. After the shooting has stopped you must return to a respawn point.
Remove your cap or helmet when returning to a respawn point. Players without headgear are deemed to be not in play.
Dead men can't talk. Wounded men can't talk (except to say "aargh, that really hurts"). Medic'd men CAN talk - they are back in the game.
If a bb hits you then you're hit. No arguments. No "my shot hit you first" rubbish.
FUN: This is supposed to be fun. Looking for loopholes in the rules, ignoring orders because you want to go and shoot people, not taking hits and other tiresome open-day type behaviour makes it not fun. We don't want that.
Just to make a couple of points clear for people who have not attended our events before:-
Bolt action rifle - Unlimited Rds (This is the only weapon we will allow speed loader reloading in game if you have limited magazines).
SMGs (Mp40 Thompson Sten etc)200 rounds. No loading in the field only at CP.
Support weapon MGs Must be Deployed Either on Bipod on a wall Tree stump or over Crew members shoulder and manned by 2 crew. They are manned by crew they have 3000 rds ammo but may only have 500 rds ish in the magazine. You may then re load the magazine in the field with another 500 rds until your 3000 limit is reached. If the gunner or the loader is killed the MG may continue to fire until the magazine is empty. It’s a Trust Thing.
Assault Rifles (Garands G43 Stg44)- 200rd Single shot
Side Arms - Whatever the Magazine holds but the allowance comes out of you designated limit. No loading in the field only at CP.

No Grenades due to the restrictions of the site at present.
Does this include tag rounds? Would you be so good as to ask? If we can bring them to use in the mortar, that would be great but if it's because of noise upsetting the neighbours then that's fine.
