Field Marshals are the supreme authority on the field. They are here to give players the best experience possible. Please be respectful and comply with all requests from Marshals. Marshals must be informed of any gameplay problems and real world emergencies.
Airsoft is a honor sport, the game relies heavily on the integrity of the players. A hit anywhere to the body or gear of a player counts as a hit. Ricochets do not count, nor do gun hits, or friendly fire. When hit a player should yell "HIT" as loud as possible, raise their hand, and assume a nonthreatening position. Dead players may not talk, or communicate in any fashion with other players.
Respawn and Medics
A respawn is a designated area that dead players can walk to, tap and come back to life. Players must go all the way to respawn. They cannot start on the way to respawn and stop for any reason before reaching their respawn point. Medics are designated players who can heal dead friendlies back to life by tapping them for 30 full seconds. Anyone can move a dead friendly player by maintaining physical contact. Medics may not shoot or move while healing a dead player.
Rules of Engagement
Try and aim for center mass when at all possible. Blind firing is not allowed, weapons should always be shouldered and players should have the ability to aim down the sights when firing. All weapons must be on semi automatic inside of buildings. Full auto fire is prohibited within fifty feet. Don’t shoot through small holes or cracks!
When you come out to play Airsoft, attitude is super important. If you have a bad attitude, you will likely have a bad time. Give other players the benefit of the doubt, and remember we are all out playing BB wars in the woods with our friends!
That being said, all of the following carry the penalty of expulsion from the field if violated:
Any language that is deemed verbally aggressive I.E. threats, slurs, vulgar gestures, condescending language.
Any physical aggression or unwanted physical contact. I. E. striking grabbing, shooting outside of gameplay.
Theft from private persons or the field.
All patrons are expected to act with integrity and maturity. Anyone who becomes a danger to themselves or the field will be ejected form the facility immediately.
When coming to Gear Up, there is an expectation that players will pay the admission fees to take part in the Airsoft experience that we provide. If ANY player is found to have not paid the admission fees but has played on the field, they will be sent home and permanently banned from our facilities.
