In order to free the road, all of the mines should be defused.
2.13 Rocket launcher – Rocket launchers will be provided by the organizers to certain players. The rocket launcher is used by aiming at the vehicle or building to be destroyed (preferably the mounted sensor) and pulling the trigger. When hit, there will be a visual/audio indication from the vehicle/building hit. There is a “reload” time before another shot can be fired. The rocket launcher has a limited number of shots, after which it must be returned to base.

“Destroyed” vehicles must have a clearly visible light marking or orange flag visible on both sides of the vehicle. When hit, the vehicle returns to base and is restored after 2 hours of downtime.
If a vehicle passes through a minefield, the normal hit rules apply, as with rocket launcher hits. When the vehicle is hit, the driver is HIT, the other players in the vehicle can choose to be HIT or leave the hit vehicle in the interval of 10 seconds. If they don’t leave it within 10 sec. all are considered HIT.
During the dark part of the day (22:00 – 06:00), vehicles must be driven with their lights on.

3 SHOOTING RULES
- It is prohibited to use the so-called “Liberian” shooting, where the player cannot see through the aiming devices the target he is shooting at!
- Shooting the torso is recommended if the situation permits.
3.1 Play in and out of buildings and close quarter combat
At distances less than 10 meters, as well as in a building, the use of any replicas firing more than 1.2 J (Class 1) is PROHIBITED, as is the firing on auto.
If one player is inside a building and the other is outside, the normal speeds and minimum distances according to the weapon class apply, with the distance being measured from the outside player to the boundary of the building where the BB passes.
3.2 Game at night.
In the dark part of the day (22:00 – 06:00) automatic shooting is prohibited (single shot only), while maintaining all other minimum distances and restrictions. As an exception, support weapons (Class 3) may fire on auto, ONLY from designated firing positions determined and marked by the organizers in advance, in which case a flashlight must be used when shooting.
4 GAME RULES
4.1 Safe Zones – A “Safe Zone” is a pre-marked place where shooting any replica for any reason is PROHIBITED, except in areas specifically designated by the organizers.
4.2 Respawn – The Respawn is a pre-marked place where eliminated players go, and after a stay determined by the organizers, return to play. The Respawn has the status of “Safe Zone” and one is available at every base. It is possible for a faction to acquire a “Mobile Respawn” under conditions and with a mode of use determined by the organizers.
4.3 Elimination – A hit anywhere on the body is an elimination. Hitting any part of the replica or gear, including the backpack, is an elimination. It is forbidden to use the equipment as a cover. A hit by a player from the same faction counts as an elimination (friendly fire).
Verbal marking by the shooter and any other player commenting on hits during the game is prohibited!
The eliminated player is not allowed to communicate with the “live” players, nor to produce shots with his replica.
Shooting at or hiding behind marked players is prohibited.
4.4 Ricochets – A ricochet hit is not considered an elimination. But “passing” shots are not considered ricochets (e.g. trough brush).
4.5 Elimination marking – The eliminated player immediately raises his replica or free hand up, shouts loudly and clearly “HIT”, “Udaren”, “Ubit”, marks himself as quickly as possible with a “death rag” (orange vest/hat) so that the mark is clearly visible from all sides (to avoid re-hits) and ceases all verbal or radio communication with other players.
4.6 Knife kill – “knife kill” or “silent elimination” is done by stalking an opponent and patting them with one hand while saying “knife kill” while holding a replica knife in the other. A player may not “finish off” an injured teammate.
4.7 Direct elimination – when hit by a mine or knife kill, the player does not “bleed”, but goes directly to the Respawn.
4.8 Bleeding – A hit player has a MANDATORY “bleeding” time of 10 minutes in the position where they are hit. During the “bleeding”, the affected player is not allowed to communicate, move and shoot. He is only allowed to call “medic”. If he has a tourniquet (real or replica), placing it doubles the player’s bleeding time (20 min). Getting hit again has no effect on the injured player (doesn’t change the bleed time or send him to the respawn).
4.9 Bleeding Player Extraction – An bleeding player may be slowly extracted (without running) by a live player by first removing their death rag (orange vest/cap)
4.10 Medic – A Medic is a player who has an armband/patch with a red cross marked on it.
4.11 Healing – At the beginning of the healing time, the medic removes the marking vest/hat. The medic must begin treatment within the 10 minute (20 with a tourniquet) “bleed” time.
IMPORTANT: A hit player that does not carry a white band/bandage on them cannot be healed. He goes to the “Respawn” after the 10 minutes of “bleeding”.
4.12 Respawning – Respawning is done in the Respawn at the whole hour regardless of when you entered. Example: If you enter in at 12:59, you must wait 1 min before entering the game. A player who entered the dead zone 20 minutes later (13:20) must wait until 14:00. Time is counted from the moment you entered the Respawn, not from the moment of elimination. Faction Commanders and their Deputies each add 60 minutes to their time.
4.13 Capturing an opposing player – Capture occurs after a “bleeding” player is healed by the opposing faction’s medic. Capture can also be done when an opponent is stalked and presents a clear target to strike. The “captured” player is not required to comply with the order and may attempt to take cover and return fire. The only allowed physical contact during captivity is searching the player.
A captive player may ONLY be searched with their consent. The searched player can stop the search at any time. To secure a captive, handcuffing is simulated/marked. Any replica found is marked as secured. Any replica not marked as secured can be used by the captured player. A captured player is not allowed to use a knife kill.
In the event that a player refuses to be searched, this automatically secures any replicas they are carrying, and they are required to hand over absolutely all game inventory provided to them, as well as provide any game information. The standard holding time in captivity is 60 minutes.
4.14. Attitude towards journalists, civilian faction – any unjustified act of aggression towards representatives of the civilian faction and/or journalists can lead to a serious negative effect on public opinion and, accordingly, the game outcome for the faction that committed it.
4.15 Conduct – Outsiders, Law Enforcement – When outsiders appear within the boundaries of the playing field, they are warned and asked to leave by the player who first noticed them. If the police or other officials appear, the game is stopped, the replicas are put on a safe and the organizers are immediately notified. In all the cases described above, the behavior and attitude of the players should be polite and non-aggressive.
5 Radio communication – Pre-determined channels provided by the organizers for each faction are used.
6 Gamemasters / Trustees – Gamemasters (the organizers of the game) and trustees (specially authorized persons by the organizers) have the right to resolve disputed situations, as well as to give mandatory instructions in order to avoid accidents, provide safety, compliance with the rules and the script, etc.. The instructions given by them are mandatory and disregard to them can lead to penalties with a mandatory tour to the Respawn or even expulsion from the game. If anyone has objections to the instructions of the game master/trustees they should still follow them and contact their commander to voice their objections.
7 PENALTIES – In case of violation of the rules, the organizers can enforce penalties which may be (non-exhaustively):
- Forced trip to the “Respawn”.
- Expulsion from the game.
- A ban on one or more participations in future games.
- Other penalties at the organizer’s discretion.
8 Sportsmanship and Common sense
- If there is a problem with a player, do not enter into an argument. Notify your commander or one of the organizers. Aggressive and offensive behavior will not be tolerated.
- Use common sense to avoid situations that could put you or any other player in real danger and risk, regardless of the faction.
- Protect nature! Do not leave behind waste and cigarette buts, put them in your pocket, in your backpack or in a box. Comply with fire safety rules and regulations.
- Don’t try to find loopholes in the rules. Don’t try to look for weak points in the script. Thus you spoil the pleasure of everyone present.
- Don’t be too quick to accuse someone of cheating just because you shot at them. You may not have hit them. Don’t kid yourself that the BBs always go exactly where you aim. Don’t overestimate yourself, even the best shooter can miss a small moving target. Always keep in mind that the BBs are light and easily deflected.
- It is forbidden to light a fire!
