Airsoft Game Rules

Here are our Airsoft game rules. We ask that all participants make themselves familiar with them before the commencement of any games at our venues.


  1. Always keep your eye protection on when in the ‘Game Zone’ and only remove eye protection when you are in the safe zone.
  2. We strongly recommend full face protection but you can wear approved safety glasses or goggles at your own risk. Skirmish Bristol Limited [Black Ops Cribbs] will not be held responsible for any injury sustained as a result from not wearing full face protection. We also reserve the right to prohibit play to anyone wearing eye protection that we consider inadequate.
  3. Any player under the age of 18 MUST wear a full face mask. Minimum age is 12 but must be accompanied by parent or guardian if under 18.
  4. It is strongly advised that strong boots with ankle support are worn.
  5. Always listen to the marshals, they are there for your safety and to look after you. As well as to make sure you obey the rules.
  6. Always remove the magazine from the gun and discharge any rounds from the chamber, and place the selector switch on safe. BEFORE entering the safe zone.
  7. Only discharge your weapon on the Game Zone, NEVER in the safe zone.
  8. Be honest, announce when you are hit.
  9. Make sure your equipment is safe i.e. NO knives, NO real weapons etc.
  10. Follow all rules. (Failure to do so may result in expulsion from the day.)
  11. Make sure you are fit. If you are not you may not be permitted or able to play.
  12. Do NOT argue with anyone – Airsoft is a social event. Violence and swearing are unacceptable. Anyone who is found to be swearing or acting in an abusive manner toward other players or marshals, will be cautioned as to their behaviour. If it continues you will be asked to leave the venue.
  13. All weapons shall be fired through a chronograph at the beginning of the day. 350 feet per second (fps) is the maximum limit for Automatic Electric Guns (AEG’s) and 450fps is the maximum limit for single shot sniper rifles. Guns may be subject to random chronograph checks during the day.
  14. Blind firing is not permitted on our venues. You must have visual contact with your target at all times.
  15. No persons UNDER the age of 12 may participate at our venues.
  16. All participants MUST sign a disclaimer. (See our documents page) If a person is under the age of 18 a Parent or Guardian must also sign the waiver.
  17. Only pyro (pyrotechnics) bought from Bristol Activity Centre [Black Ops Cribbs] can be used at our venues. (i.e. Smoke grenades/Flash bangs.)
