    Hit and 3-Minute Sit Respawn Rule Set

    If you, your gun, anything you’re holding, or anything worn on your body are struck by a BB, a foam sword, or a stealth hit such as a “knife kill” (shoulder tap), then you’re immediately considered to be hit and out of play.

    After being hit, you’re expected to loudly call out "Hit, hit, hit!" as you pull out and wave your red rag a couple times before placing it on your head. You want your attacker to know that he/she hit you so that you’ll no longer be targeted for more hits. Close-range hits don’t require such loud acknowledgements. Stealth-hits are to be acknowledged silently by simply donning the red rag without saying “hit” or anything else. Theatrical casualties are encouraged because they add to the immersion.

    You may not shoot at or attempt to hit anyone else while you’re a hit player. You may not communicate with live players or use radios other than to announce that you’ve been hit, request a medic, find your squad, or to reveal how much time you have left before you may be respawned back in. On the other hand, as a hit player, you may speak to other hit players about anything as long as it’s spoken quietly enough to where no live players will overhear the conversation. Any game props that are larger/longer than a basketball must be dropped at your feet when you’re hit, but please keep your own guns and gear with you at all times.

    After putting on your red rag, you must sit down or kneel and start your required wristwatch timer. Remain down and not moving for three minutes (180 seconds). However, if you are in the line of fire, you may crawl just far enough away to get out of it. Additional hits that you receive as a hit player don’t cause your time to reset. During these first three minutes, you’re absolutely not allowed to stand up or respawn.

    Wait or Move
    After three minutes have elapsed on your timer, you may choose between waiting for someone to respawn you in your current position or standing up and moving to meet with someone at a respawn tree. Waiting is recommended if live friendly players are nearby and can reach you safely. Moving is recommended if enemies have overrun your location or if your live buddies have moved out of the area. You may wait for as long as you like before choosing to move. But, once you choose to start moving, you may respawn only with the help of a live player at a respawn tree.
    If you choose to wait in place, you must remain seated, and you may shout “medic” to let the people around you know that you’re ready to be respawned back into the game. Any live player may perform the respawn, but she/he must come to you first.
    If you choose to stand and move, you must find a live player who is willing to go with you to a respawn tree that is safely far enough away from enemy fire. You may need to spectate for a while if your live buddies are engaged in a firefight and unable to help you, but stay out of the way so that you’re not blocking shots or providing cover to any live players. If no live players are available or willing to help you within a reasonable time, please work your way up the chain of command to Game Control for assistance. As a moving hit player, don’t go near enemies and their control sites because you don’t want to be accused of cheating by performing reconnaissance. Also, never enter any structures or fortifications as a moving hit player. Likewise, as a live player, don’t follow your hit enemies around the field in an attempt to prevent them from respawning.
    Optional Rule: At certain events, instead of respawning with a friend at a respawn tree, you may also be given the option to respawn yourself at your faction’s command tent/post.

    The act of respawning is quick and easy. The live player simply pulls the red rag off of the hit player’s head and puts it in the hit player’s hand.
    Optional Rule: At certain events, the live player may also be required to place a white bandage on the hit player’s left arm in order to complete the respawn process.
    If there’s any doubt about whether the hit player’s three minutes have elapsed, his/her wristwatch timer must be displayed as proof. If the respawn is to take place at a respawn tree, the hit player and the live player must each have one foot touching the base of the tree trunk before performing the respawn. Respawn trees are marked with a band of red & white reflective tape that may only be repositioned by event staff. Their locations are marked with red & white dots on the map linked HERE.

    During, the first three minutes of sitting, you may also allow yourself to be “dragged” by a live player if she/he is willing to move you somewhere. You may simulate being dragged by maintaining simple physical contact with a live player while walking or running together. Don’t pause your timer while being dragged. Whenever the live player stops moving with you, you must get back down into a sitting position. Additional hits that you receive while being dragged don’t cause your time to reset; however, the player who is dragging you is now hit and must go through this rule set from the beginning. This prevents live players from using hit players as mobile meat-shields. After a hit player’s three minutes have elapsed, he/she may no longer be dragged.
    There usually isn’t much benefit in dragging a hit player. However, some squads may want to do it in order to keep the hit players near them while they’re moving fast toward a distant objective. Also, some players may want to drag their hit buddies behind cover so that it will be safer to respawn them after their three minutes are up.
