Randolph Paintball Safety Rules
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 PLUG/GUN SAFETY – The gun’s barrel plug must remain in the gun at all times
until you are told by your field referee to remove it. The plug should be removed only during
game play. We do not rely on trigger safety locks.
3. 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. 4. 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.
5. 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. 6. SURRENDER RULE – DO NOT shoot a player at a distance of less than 25 feet. If you can
approach an opposing player at point blank range, give him the chance to surrender by yelling
“SURRENDER!” The surrendering player should put his barrel plug in the gun and yell “I’M
OUT!” If that player chooses not to surrender, turns and points his gun towards you, shoot fast
or be shot!
7. Keep your mask securely on your head at all times while on the field, keep your barrel plug in
the gun until play begins and listen to the directions of your field referee at all times.
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 (DEAD) for that game. If you are eliminated, stay low, put your barrel plug into 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 “alive” 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.
Make sure that your safety mask is securely tightened to your head. The head straps are adjustable by sliding the clips. Use water and tissue to clean the mask between games.
DO NOT pick up paintballs from the ground and put them into your gun (there is no 3 second rule with paintballs). Any dirt/sawdust on the balls will jam the gun.
The paintball guns are CO2 powered and are semi-automatic. Every time you pull the trigger the gun will shoot a paintball. Never pull the trigger when the barrel plug is in 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.
