Rules

Pew-Pew.fi uses a set of rules that are based on years of experience and have been found to be working well. Full list of rules can be found in end of this page but here you can find most important ones to get you going.

What you need when coming to the site:

  • Eye protection, ballistic or paintball/airsoft rated
  • Red and yellow arm-band for identification and death-rag, orange
  • Attendance fee: 5 €. We accept cash (exact change please!) or Mobilepay
  • Hydration, water
  • Face-protection, compulsory for minors, recommended for everybody

It is very important to protect or at least cover all areas of the body which can be harmed by airsoft BB’s or the environmental hazards. Protecting your eyes and teeth is absolutely important at all times! To prevent these unfortunate mishaps, eye-protection is to be kept on all the time when game is on and moving around the field. It is also highly recommended to use protection also in off-game areas. We require under 18 year old players to use closed goggles with headband – ballistic “shooter glasses” are not approved for minors. The orange death rag is to mark you’re out of the game. Try not to shoot people with orange rag visible.

Run of the Pew-Pew-day:

  1. When you arrive, take your gear to the off-game area.
  2. Come to the registration stand (have the money or Mobilepay app with you already)
  3. When you’ve registered, you’ll get a “chronotag.” Keep this with you until the chronoing of your gun.
  4. Take your weapon(s) and the chronotag to the chrono site; REMEMBER YOUR GOGGLES!
  5. Chrono your weapon(s). Once your weapon(s) passes the test, give your chronotag to the organizer at the chrono site.
  6. Get yourself ready, preferably before the briefing starts. If you need the briefing in English, PLEASE MAKE SURE THE ORGANIZERS ARE AWARE OF THIS!
