A player is marked out when a paintball hits and breaks on him or any part of his equipment leaving a mark the size of a 20 cent peice or larger. Head and neck shots do not count.
If a player is holding an object as a shield and it is hit and marked, he will be out.
Splatter from a paintball bursting on a tree or any other object will count if it is the size of a 20 cent piece.
When a player is marked out, he will call out loudly “I’M OUT” or “I’M HIT”, immediately raise an arm, place the barrel bag on the gun, and exit the playing field as quickly as possible.
When a player has been hit in a location that he cannot see, he may call for a paintcheck. The player must call “PAINTCHECK ME” and continue to play. A referee will come over to check the player for a hit, do not stop playing. If the judge feels it necessary to move the player to check him, he will call the player neutral by shouting out “THIS PLAYER IS NEUTRAL”, and will place a hand on the player. If you see a judge with his hand on a player, that player is neutral. Neutral players may not be fired upon, and they may not fire. Neutral players may not move, and no player may move to improve their position on this player. Once the paintcheck has been resolved, the referee will call the player in or out, and the game will resume.
Whenever you get a player in a hopeless situation, 5 metres or less, you should offer the player a chance to surrender rather than shoot at close range. Call out “SURRENDER” . If he does not respond in a non-aggressive manner fast enough for you, you may shoot. Absolutely No head shots or multiple shooting will be tolerated. To surrender, a player may call out “OUT”, “HIT”, “I SURRENDER”, “I GIVE”. “OK”, or any other statement that will convey a positive response.
