Safety/Game Rules

Safety/Game Rules

Below are the rules for safe play at The Swamp Paintball Park. These rules are an outline for general recreational play and for any private groups we host. For scenario events be sure to read and familiarize yourself with The Swamp Scenario Rules of Play (SSRP).

  • Our two most important Safety rules at The Swamp are MASKS ON and BARREL BAGS ON. Before entering and while on the playing field your mask must be on and STAY ON at all times – NO EXCEPTIONS!! Before exiting and when off the playing field your barrel bag must be on and STAY ON at all times NO EXCEPTIONS!! Barrel plugs are not acceptable.
  • No fully auto, semi auto only. Response triggers are OK.

  • Our maximum velocity is 285 fps. You must chrono your marker before playing.
  • We play single shot elimination here. One shot anywhere to the body and you are eliminated from the game. Marker shots do not count except when told beforehand. When you are eliminated raise your marker above your head and exit the field immediately or walk back to respawn if applicable.
  • Dead men don’t talk. Don’t talk to your team mates after you have been eliminated.
  • If you get hit by a paintball and you are not sure if it broke, call for a paint check. A ref will come over and check you out and let you know if you are eliminated or not. Keep playing untill you are checked as you are still a live player.
  • We have a 20 foot rule in the woods and concept fields. If you are within 20 feet of someone give them a chance to surrender. They must raise their marker immediately to surrender, otherwise shoot them with 1-2 paintballs. It works both ways. If you are asked to surrender either raise your marker or shoot 1-2 paintballs. You don’t have to surrender and alot of people don’t. There is no 20 foot rule inside of any vehicle or structure on the field.
  • Barrel Taps/Knife Kills. If someone taps or touches you with their barrel you are eliminated.
  • NO OVERSHOOTING. It only takes one shot to eliminate someone. Five shots is to many. Sometimes it happens. Please, do not do it intentionally.
  • NO PROFANITY! Sesame Street rule. If you can’t say it on Sesame Street you can’t say it here.
  • NO UNSPORTSMANSHIP like conduct. Treat others as you want to be treated.
  • NO CHEATING. Paintball is an honor sport. If you are hit, call yourself out and leave the playing field. NO WIPING, NO PLAYING ON.
  • Ref calls are final. DO NOT ARGUE WITH THE REFEREES.
  • Discharge your markers in the chronograph area or on the field only. No dry firing in the parking lot or staging areas.
  • We have a three stike rule for violators of the rules. First offense – Warning. Second offense – Sit out a game. Third offense – Done for the day.
  • Watch the terrain. it’s uneven in areas. We have stumps, roots, holes, mud, etc.
  • We play 20 minute games with 10 minute intervals.
  • Play hard – Play fair and most of all HAVE FUN!!!

    Along with every thing which appears to be developing within this specific subject matter, your viewpoints are generally very refreshing. Even so, I beg your pardon, but I can not give credence to your entire plan, all be it exciting none the less. It appears to me that your comments are generally not completely rationalized and in fact you are your self not even completely certain of the argument. In any case I did appreciate reading it.
