Black Ops Bristol Ruleset


  1. Basic Field Rules
    1. Age restriction: 10+ on Fridays, 12+ for Saturdays & Sundays.
    2. Eye protection: ALL players required to wear full seal, ANSI Z87.1 rated, goggles. Players under 18 are required to wear full face covering.
    3. All guns may not have magazines in them or be holstered in safe zones.
    4. Eye protection must STAY ON AT ALL TIMES ON THE FIELD. Players caught taking their eye protection off while on the field will be asked to leave.

  2. Field Conduct
    1. CALL YOUR HITS! Airsoft is an honor-based sport, cheating ruins everyone's fun and IS NOT tolerated. If you suspect a player is cheating, call for a referee. Be ready to give them a good description of the offending player.
    2. Theft of any kind will result in a permanent ban.
    3. Any form of physical altercation or verbal abuse will not be tolerated. Involve a ref if anyone is screaming or yelling and move on to not escalate the situation.
    4. Do not intentionally block or provide cover for teammates after being hit. All players are permitted three steps to get out of the line of fire when medics are in play. Otherwise find a fire free way back to respawn.
    5. Do not blind fire. You must be able to look down the sights of your guns to shoot.
    6. Do not climb on buildings, vehicles, trees, deer stands, or anything else.
    7. If you hit another player and they do not call the hit, tell them nicely they must take that hit. If you begin shouting or using abrasive language you are immediately in the wrong and must call yourself out. Likewise, if a player informs you that you are hit, even if you did not feel anything, you must call the hit.

  3. Hits
    1. Any direct hit to any part of the body/gear counts.
    2. After being hit, raise your hand/gun and yell "HIT!"
    3. Ricochets DO NOT count.
    4. Gun hits do not count, unless it would go through the gun and hit the player - guns are not hard cover!
    5. Any rubber melee hits count as a kill. Melee weapons must be of a soft rubber construction and are only permitted to tap kill. No stabbing, thrusting or chopping. Throwing is permitted but ONLY UNDERHAND!
    6. Friendly fire counts! Team kills are still kills.

  4. Bang Kill/Minimum Engagement Distance (MED)
    1. When within 10 feet, you must audibly say "bang kill" to kill an enemy player.
    2. In order to "bang kill," your gun must be pointed at the player the entire time "bang kill" is said.
    3. LMGs, DMRs, Snipers, Pistols, and Shotguns cannot be used to "bang kill."

  5. Grenades/Mines
    1. Only wire pull smoke grenades are allowed on the field. (NO homemade smokes)
    2. Pyrotechnic grenades are permitted, including certain TAGinn grenades.
    3. Approved TAGinn grenades include: Paladin and Archangel rounds for anti-vehicle use. Reaper rounds are allowed for building clearing, however, they are only allowed to be fired through doorways. All thrown TAGinn grenades are permitted unless they contain paint.
    4. DO NOT intentionally fire any TAGinn rounds directly at players.
    5. Sound only (banger) grenades have a 15ft kill radius for infantry, and a 5ft kill radius on vehicles. If thrown into a building, everyone in the room is dead. DO NOT throw grenades over building walls. You CAN throw grenades over fences, shelves, ect.
    6. Claymores kill by BB hit only.
    7. layers are permitted to dive on grenades. Diving on a grenade to save your team results in that player's immediate death after detonation. They cannot be saved by a medic and after any active bleed outs for the game go back to respawn.

  6. Grenade/Rocket Launcher
    1. Single grenade launchers and six barrel launchers are permitted for use. If carrying a 6 barrel grenade launcher, a pistol or shotgun is the only other permitted weapon that can be carried.
    2. One shot with a grenade clears a room, unless someone is fully behind hard cover. Grenade launchers can be "blind fired" for this purpose. If shooting a grenade launcher “blind fire” you must angle it towards the ground. If a majority of the BBs go into the room, it is considered cleared. This also counts for single projectile launchers such as foam balls. Shower shells fired at players outside a building from a grenade launcher only kill by BB hit. If fired at a vehicle grenade launcher hits put it into a disabled state.
    3. Rockets instantly kill a vehicle and all occupants. If a rocket is fired into a room then all players inside that room are considered dead. Rockets have a 15ft kill radius on infantry, and a 5ft kill radius on vehicles. A shower shell kills players only on a BB hit, and a vehicle if the majority of BBs impact the vehicle.
    4. Reloading grenade launchers is permitted if you have additional shells carried on you. If you need to recharge a grenade shell with gas it must be done at a respawn or friendly FoB. Rocket launchers follow these same rules. However if the real world equivalent of your rocket launcher replica is a one shot launcher such as the LAW or AT4 then it can only be reloaded at a Respawn or FoB regardless of the number of shells you are carrying.

    2. Dead players must wait 2 minutes at an FOB before spawning back into the game. You must still complete your bleed out time at the location where you were shot.
    3. Spawning at an FOB allows dead/wounded players to remove all previous bandages.
