Cromwell CQB reserves the right to change rules as needed to ensure a safe and secure environment.

REFEREE DECISIONS ARE FINAL: Players will not be allowed to argue with the referee, or change/modify the rulings.

ALL PLAYER WEAPONS WILL BE CHRONOED. There will be no exceptions. If a player shows up during a game, they must wait until the game is finished to play. A.20 g BB will be used during chrono. An orange piece of tape will be placed on weapons barrel as they are checked to signify it meets safety limits.

PERSONAL PROTECTION: Goggles REQUIRED. Impact rated ( meets or exceeds ANSI standards) fully sealed goggles must be worn at all times on the game field, or wraps that meet ANSI or Z-87 ratings (baklava/headscarf Standard eyewear is not acceptable (regular eyeglasses/sunglasses)Full face protection is required.
SURRENDER RULE: In CQB situations, an order to surrender can only be given within 5 feet. All players ordered to surrender MUST COMPLY. It is conceivable that a player can sneak up to within 5 feet of a group of players and order all of them to surrender. Please use common sense when using this rule. This rule is about safety. We understand things happen in the heat of the battle. If you are surrounded and pinned down by a group of players and you know there is no other alternative except getting shot, you might want to surrender on your own.
SAFETY KILL: If a player is within the 5 foot rule, it is recommended you honor a safety kill to your opponent rather than shooting them point blank. For this you would yell “BANG, BANG!” The player must honor the safety kill. This is for common courtesy and for safety. A safety kill is only valid when you would normally have a clear close shot!
ELIMINATONS: Any hit from a BB anywhere on your body is an elimination (unless stated otherwise prior to playing).
GUN HITS DO NOT COUNT. Ricochets do not count. Any hit from a BB ricocheting off an object close to you (wall, tree, your gun, etc. ) don’t count.
Friendly fire (hits from teammates) counts.
In the event of elimination, the eliminated player must yell, “HIT!” No false calls. Put on your “DEAD HAT/RAG” or simply raise your arms with your weapon above your head. If the area is clear, the eliminated player immediately exits the playing area in the most direct route possible. If necessary, call out “HIT!” numerous times to prevent from being shot again. While exiting, the only word from an eliminated player must be “HIT!” and nothing else. Dead men tell no tales.
Have Fun and play safe!
