Airsoft Game Formats
There are a number of game formats that you can be involved with including:
Prison Escape – here you are a prisoner and you have to try to escape with a few other prisoners down an escape tunnel.
Capture the Flag – two teams have their own flag that the other team is attempting to capture and take back to their base. Other games include – Stalkers, Manhunt, and Last Player Standing.
Although there are legal requirements around the use of the guns themselves, the rules for the game are more informal but contain some basic universal guidelines.
If the body or gear (but not the weapon) is hit, the player is out. When hit the player shouts "I'm hit" and raises his arm. After being hit the player must go to the safe zone. After the hit, the players must not talk with each other Friendly fire counts as a hit.
Safety: Some Basics
For your own safety and the safety of others bear in mind the following:
Do not show your guns in plain public view. Play airsoft games in designated areas and not public places like parks etc. For personal safety wear goggles, a long sleeve shirt, and boots.
Do not remove goggles while a game is in process. When in the designated safe zone always keep your gun's safety on. Failure to comply may get you banned from a particular location.
