GENERAL RULES AND INFORMATION
that PaintballToGo fields no longer considers a barrel
plug adequate. All barrels must be blocked with a barrel wrap***
Eliminated players must go back to a designated dead zone. We have
continuous reinsertion, so you just need to touch your dead zone and you
can come back in.
The playing field will be clearly marked for all players. Marker tape. Twine,
rope, etc… this boundary must be visible to players.
Each team will have a neutral starting area where their players can start. This
is to make sure they get a clean start and not get hit instantly. The captains
use this area to secure props and do their own paperwork etc. messages on
missions will go to this base. Enemy players are not allowed in this area.
There will be no camping in the dead zones. This means only dead players are
allowed in this area. Players caught hiding here and shooting players from this
area will be ejected out of the game.
4. Players that
are re-inserting must have their barrel cover on and be walking together going
to the re-insertion point “neutral headquarters”.
Boundaries set up to keep players out for their own safety, around thorns etc.

players and refs know.
will be given “on average” every hour. There will be 2 types of
missions. Primary and secondary. Primary missions will take up to 1 hour to
complete. Secondary missions will only take half an hour. The mission clock
starts after the Captain reads the mission given to him by mission ref. Primary
missions will be predetermined. Secondary missions will be radioed or hand
delivered by a mission ref.
Captains will also be handed a mission statement. This statement is what
the general and his team are expected to do on their own. These are the primary
missions that they will carry out on their own.
All primary missions will have a flagpole. You must raise your team’s flag and
hold that area until the specified time is over.

this means only red players may touch it. If marked blue, only blue players may
touch it. If marked with red and blue both teams may use it. Players are not
allowed to touch, hide or move enemy’s props. They may however trap the area
or set up ambushes around the item.
If you find a prop you must bring it back to your captains headquarters. This
will insure your team gets the points for it.
No fireworks allowed unless the field and event organizer approves it. This
includes smoke grenades as well.
and other forms of communication.
On FRS radios, fields and referees will always be on channel 1. Players are not
allowed to use the channel unless it is an emergency.
2. No jamming of the radio frequencies. If
players are caught doing this they will be ejected from the game.
3. Players may snoop on the enemies
channels but do not interfere with them.
4. The captains will be given the
frequencies they can use. Each captain will be issued a secret channel directly
to the event organizer. This channel will be used to send classified info back
to the generals.
