    IN GAME ITEMS. . In-game items are the property of Tanks Airsoft and they include, but are not limited to, props, intel packets, and currency. They must be handed over when searched. If you bleed out, they must be left on the ground (except for currency) and become capable of being looted by other players. In some cases there are mission-specific items that will not be dropped as well as cases where staff will instruct you not to drop items.

    NIGHT OP’s. Clear eye pro only • After dark no rifles, sniper rifles, DMR, or SAWs. Side arm use only (TANKS will have loaners). • A blue or green light stick (led or chem) to signal you are hit and flashlight is required • Night Vision is allowed. Lasers: Must be “Eye Safe” and have a maximum power output that is below 5mw for a visible laser and 0.7mw for IR lasers. Players are never to aim any laser system directly at the eyes of another player

    FOB’s. FOBs are also a MASH/resupply point and are not captured-able. To discourage spawn camping all players shot within 150’ of their FOB may instant respawn on their FOB with no bleed out time.

    SPORTSMANSHIP. It’s expected! Call Your Own Hits DO NOT CALL ANOTHER PLAYER'S HITS. If you suspect a player is not calling their hits, do not take matters into your own hands. Please use the chain of command by bringing this to the attention of your Squad Leader and/or the Event Staff. If you call another players hit you are also calling yourself out as well. You must take a knee and pull out a dead rag and follow medic procedures.

    Electronic Warfare Jamming or listening in the opposition's radio frequency is strictly prohibited (unless cleared by the administration).

    DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES. Hit players may only call for a medic and may not try to influence gameplay in any way.

    RESUPPLY. You may only refill magazines at your FOB or MASH points only.

    HITS. If a BB strikes you or any gear worn by you, you are “Hit”. Strikes to any gear carried by your hands do not count (i.e. gun hits). Once a player is hit they are to yell “hit” 3 times and display their dead flag or light and start timing their 5 minute bleed out. They must sit, kneel, or lie down; NO STANDING! Grenade hits please refer to BB Grenades.

    CARRY/DRAGS. To move a player that has been hit, grasp their wrist and they may then stand up and put there arm over your shoulder. You then place your arm around their waist as if you are moving with person with a sprained ankle. 1 or 2 players on 1 drag player you must walk regardless. Physically dragging their body to cover is the preferred way at our games. Wrist carry or walking/running to cover is strictly prohibited.

    BLEED OUT. This is mandatory. If you do not receive treatment from a medic or a Tourniquet before the 5 minutes is up you arena dead.

    MEDIC PROCEDURES. Medic Must pull out ace bandage from your teammates marked ifak or medical pouch. Wrap arm with bandage (wrap and tuck under wrap. No knot tying!) Inject medication (with provided empty syringe). Medic pulls dead rag and gives it back to player. Leave bandage on until resupplied/retasked at medical resupply point or by your CO. No individual respawns are permitted
    MEDIC HEALS TOURNIQUETS IN BUILDING. Drag rules still apply, players must present dead rag or Tourniquet to opposing player. Then proceed to medic rules procedures.

    MASH SITES. Individual re-spawns are NOT permitted. When a unit becomes combat ineffective they are to go to a MASH flag (red cross) point as a unit that is under there factions control. Individual players are not permitted spawn without their squad. Once a squad has reached the MASH unit they may take off. Any used bandages, and Tourniquets and place the bandages back in their IFAC for reuse. MASH units are captured-able (depending on the event). There are green and tan flags attached to the MASH units. To capture, remove the opposing flag and hoist yours. Players shot within 25 yards of a Mash are NOT ALLOWED to spawn back at that point, that means their whole squad can’t either. They all must re-spawn at their FOB or Alternate MASH.

    CONTESTING A MASH. There is no respawning at a contested MASH. Whatever color flag is flying owns the point, if you want it, shoot them and raise your flag. Players shot within 25 yards of a Mash are NOT ALLOWED to spawn back at that point if they control it or not, that means their whole squad can’t either. They all must re-spawn at their FOB or Alternate controlled MASH.

    SUICIDE DEVICES AND IED’s. Suicide devices are an in-game item and must be triggered prior to being shot or captured. IED’s have a 30’ kill radius on players and vehicles

    END OF GAME. Every one repeat so it travels across the field, remove your magazine, fire 3 shots in the ground to clear your gun, put on your dead flag and head to staging or FOB.
