Our BattleSim Rules are designed to make sure you get the most out of the event you are attending. They’re not too strict like our Immersive MilSim rules, but carry enough structure within them to ensure a smooth running day, with just the right amount of challenges within allowing you to get the best of both a more casual game, as well as getting a more structured, military style event.
Remember though, these are not what we call MilSims. They are BattleSims and are a half way between a MilSim and a Skirmish.
When arriving at one of our BattleSim Events, it is important to take due care, for your own safety, particularly for events being held at Military training areas.
With this in mind, ALL players are advised not to arrive to site in full military clothing, and are recommended to arrive in civilian clothing, or a mix of, and get changed once on site.
Gate’s WILL close at 09:10 sharp with the aim to carry out a safety brief by 09:30, in time for a 10:00 game start. Late arrivals delay the game for everyone else, so we will close the gate at that time, and while we will accommodate genuine late arrivals as best we can, it is not always possible to get you on once the gates are closed. In short, DON’T BE LATE.
The event will generally finish no later than 17:00 on the same day, unless otherwise stated.
You MUST bring all food and water that you require for the event with you. We have light snacks and drinks available for sale on site, but we do not provide food. You must self administrate, in the field, throughout this event.

There is no limit to the amount of pyro you carry.
BFG’s can only be reclaimed once the area is clear of combat OR, if your whole team is dead, you may ask the enemy team to retrieve and hand back your grenade to you, although this is not a given, so do not be surprised if they decline.
No over arm throwing of BFG’s are allowed. Posting of grenades IS allowed in a controlled manor, and you must use them in a sensible manner.
Military Smoke is NOT allowed at these events.
Tag rounds and their launchers may be used in this game. If you are planning on bringing a TAG launcher and rounds to the event you MUST inform us before hand. ANYONE using TAG launchers and rounds in a way that we deem unacceptable and/or unsafe or not within the spirit of the day will be removed from the site immediately with NO REFUND.
You must use TAG launchers as area weapons, and not as direct impact weapons. That means do NOT intentionally try to hit individual players.

We operate a 5 minute bleed out after all wounds at these events.
Due to COVID and remaining non-contact, players will need to self revive under certain conditions.
All players must carry their own dressings on their person and can carry a maximum of 2. No dressing, no revive.
Dressings MUST be a proper bandage or Tourniquet system. Mine tape, string, grannies old tights are NOT allowed!
You are hit when a bb strikes your body or slung/holstered weapons. Strikes to your “in use” weapon system do not count.
When players are hit they must kneel, or lay down and immediately shout hit, using a red dead rag if you have one (these will be available from our store on the day). Wounded players MUST NOT be moved at all by friendly or enemy forces. Wounded players MUST NOT move themselves under their own power. If you are wounded in a building, you must vacate the building to the nearest exit before you can revive yourself.
First Hit or Second Hit = You self aid with a bandage from your own kit. You MUST NOT self aid if still in direct contact (this includes rounds flying over your head toward your buddies behind you).
Third hit = You are DEAD and must return to your Regen or Resupply/HQ after your 5 minute bleed out.
Grenade Hit = You are DEAD and must return to your Regen or Resupply/HQ after your 5 minute bleed out.
If you are unable to treat yourself within 5 minutes of being hit, you have bled out and must return to your Regen/Resupply.
You MUST wait 5 minutes to bleed out. Players cannot instantly walk off when they are hit, no matter how they have been killed. This ensures teams fighting through areas do not have a sudden influx of enemy troops in quick succession.
Grenade and TAG rounds have a 5 metre kill radius and are an instant kill, even IF you are already waiting for a medic, and they still require a 5 minute bleed out.
Dead players don’t talk, and we recommend the use of dead rags, although these are not compulsory.
Minimum age limit for our BattleSim events is 16 years old.
Any players not adhering to these rules, which WILL be sent to you separately, may be expelled from the event with no refund given.
