Airsoft Rules for Outdoor Xtreme Chesapeake City

• General Rules
◦ Referees and Staff have the final word. If you have any questions, comments or concerns
with what happens on the field, we encourage you to contact management directly.
◦ All replicas must have a “barrel bag” covering the muzzle and magazines removed while
inside the registration, parking and staging areas. Pistols must remained holstered.
◦ Do not leave any equipment unattended. Players are responsible for their belongings. The
field will not be held liable for any lost or stolen items.
◦ There will be no physical contact between players unless specifically in accordance to any
briefed medic rules in use for a particular game.
◦ Players or staff should call “cease fire” if any player is injured and requires immediate
admin/medical attention. The “cease fire” call should also be made if any player loses their
eye protection while in the playing area.
On the call of “cease fire” players need to immediately cease fire and put their replica on
safe. Remain at your location and do not move until the “all clear” or “game on” call is
given by the staff.
◦ If a player is injured, do not move the player. Wait for staff or a trained medical
professional and only aid if instructed.

• Safety Equipment
◦ Eye Protection must be worn at all times outside of the registration, parking and staging
areas.
◦ Under no circumstances may a player remove their eye protection while on the field. If
fogging exists, locate a referee and they will direct you to the closest safe area for
defogging.

◦ Avoid shooting at an opponent’s head or neck when possible. We realize sometimes that
only the head and neck are exposed to fire, but please be courteous to your fellow player.

your replica around a tree, over a log or out of a doorway and shoot blindly at an
opponent.
◦ There is no Minimum Engagement Distance (MED) for the Rifleman & Squad Auto Classes.
It is 100 Feet for the Designated Marksman & Sniper Classes.

◦ Gun Hits & Ricochets do not count as a player hits.
◦ Dead players do not talk! If you are dead, you are not to talk to other players.
◦ All players must have a red “kill rag” to be pulled out when hit. Failure to have a kill rag
may result in your ejection from the game and additional hits taken due to your opponent’s
confusion as to if you’re in play or out.
◦ If you have a clear advantage over an unknowing player within 10 Feet, you may call “safety
kill.” A player is not required to call themselves out for a safety kill, but should if caught
dead-to-rights.

hits. If you suspect that another player is cheating, contact the closest referee.
