High Voltage Paintball Safety Rules

 

‚Äč

  1. FACE MASK – DO NOT REMOVE your face mask for any reason once you enter the playing field. You must keep it on until told by your field referee that it is safe to remove it.

  2. BARREL SLEEVE/GUN SAFETY – The gun’s barrel sleeve must remain on the gun at all times until you are told by your field referee to remove it. The sleeve should be removed only during game play. We do NOT rely on trigger safety locks. Referees can see the sleeve from a distance, they can not see the trigger safety lock.

  3. BLIND FIRING – You must always have your target in sight before firing. DO NOT pull the trigger of your gun without knowing what you are shooting at.

  4. ENGAGEMENT RULE – Our referee will give you a full explanation of the engagement rule during the safety orientation.

  5. Keep your mask securely on your head at all times while on the field, keep your barrel sleeve on the gun until play begins and listen to the directions of your field referee at all times.

Game Rules

  • Paintball is a game of “TAG" or elimination. If you are hit by a paintball anywhere on your body, face mask or gun, and the paintball breaks (sometimes the balls will bounce off without breaking) and leaves a splat of paint, you are eliminated for that game.

  • If you are eliminated, stay low, put your barrel sleeve on the gun, raise your gun overhead and start yelling “HIT”, to alert players and the referee that you have been eliminated. Follow your referee’s directions to get of the field and to the Dead Zone. Remember, while in the Dead Zone, no coaching teammates still on the field – “Dead Men Don’t Talk!”

  • The referee will determine the winning team by taking a count of the team with the most players remaining at the end of timed game play. Please listen to and follow the directions of your field referee at the beginning and end of each game.

Paintball Equipment

  • Make sure that your safety mask is securely tightened to your head. The head straps are adjustable by sliding the clips.

  • Use spray bottles with water (provided) and tissue to clean the mask between games.

  • DO NOT pick up ANY paintballs from the ground and put them into your gun (there is no 3 second rule with paintballs). Any dirt on the balls will jam the gun.

  • The paintball guns are air powered and are semi-automatic. Every time you pull the trigger the gun will shoot a paintball. Never pull the trigger when the barrel sleeve is on the gun.

  • The guns MUST be held in an upright position (with the paintball hopper on top) to fire properly. DO NOT tip the gun sideways to shoot. The guns will fire as fast as you can pull the trigger, BUT to avoid jams, remove your finger from the trigger after each shot to allow the next paintball a chance to load.
