9 Knife Kill

9.1 Is a way of eliminating your opponent when in very close proximity. Its advantage over calling for surrender is that it is silent.

10 No time outs

10.1 You cannot call time out or cease-fire if your weapon is malfunctioning or the player is reloading.

12 Civilians

12.5 If a marshal is around, the marshal shall be the one to declare the restart of game play.

13 Observe proper decorum

13.1 Be courteous
13.2 No swearing

Conduct outside the game site:

14 Do not be a PDA, (Public Displaying of Airsoft).

14.1 Your gun may be a toy, but it looks real. Because of this, care must be taken in handling it in public. There have been many incidents in the past wherein police have been called in because of the presence of "armed men". Please apply common sense.
14.2 Display of an airsoft gun is illegal under Letter of Instruction 1264. Under LOI1264, it is illegal to manufacture, import, distribute, sell or display "certain types" of toy guns. Airsoft guns have consistently been included as part of those "certain types". However, ownership or possession is not illegal, per se, just as long as it is not displayed to the public. Worse case is the authorities will confiscate the airsoft gun, but they cannot arrest you for possession.

15 Do not wear Battle Dress Uniform (BDU)/Fatigues in Public.

15.1 It attracts unwarranted attention and can also lead to people calling in the police. It may also be considered a violation of Usurpation of Authority clause of Article 11, Section 1, Chapter 2, Title 4 of the Revised Penal Code, particularly if someone mistakes you for being military or police for wearing BDU or Fatigues.

16 Do not play in full view of the Public

16.1 Playing in full view of the public not only displays yourself in BDUs and your weapons, but may also create an illusion that there is some distrubance, illegal militia training or terrorist activity going on. If you do insist on playing in view of the public, be sure to have the proper permission from the local authorities.
