Sadly there is no such thing as a "perfect game." We will do our best to provide you with the tools and the platform for an incredible experience, however, it is up to the players to decide the outcome.
Force Recon understands that many people want to film and document their game play and we encourage you to do so. We do not however want personal camera crews coming to film invididual squads etc. This is not something that we want to incorporate into our events as we already have select few photographers and videographers on site. Please do not email and ask.
If you are a photographer/videographer and would like to be part of our events please reach out to us - firstname.lastname@example.org

These rules are used to maintain squad integrity and tactics. This game is based on everyone working together as a squad.
Squads will remain together for the course of the event the best they can. Not everyone will last the entire time. If need be, attach yourself to another squad until your squad is able to join the game again.
Your squad leader is ultimately in charge and will determine when it is best suited for the squad to withdrawl to their CP and re-arm.
When "withdrawing" from the battle, all members of the squad must pull out their kill rags/glowsticks until they are back at their CP.
1) Each person will be given 1 Tourniquet (TQ's).
2) Medics can not bandage themselves - Another live medic can.
3) If both medics in the squad are hit, it is mandatory to have your squad return to the CP unless they can be healed by another medic.
4) No one goes back to CP by themselves, the entire squad must go back to CP together. - Live and die as a squad.
5) No Bleed out. Wounded player(s) must remain in place when hit. A wounded player may not move on their own free will.
Another player can PHYSICALLY drag/carry the wounded player(s). - Ask them if they want to be dragged or carried if need be.
There is no longer a 5 min bleed out rule. Wounded players will remain where they are until their squad is able to retrieve them.
6) A medic must have a watch and must hold you for 1 minute in order to simulate "healing" someone.
7) Your TQ can be used on someone else. You may not re-use TQ's until "re-supply."
8) Bandages can be "re-supplied" at your CP anytime you wish - To re-supply your bandages your entire squad must "withdrawl" and go back to the CP.
9) Medics can only bandage 1 person at a time.
10)If you are hit by a mortar you do not pass go and do not collect $200. Return to CP as a squad.
Rescue Ops - Platoon Leads/HVT
1) If a PL gets hit they can use 1 TQ
2) 2nd hit they will remain in place and must be carried out on a stretcher. - 30min bleed out time (just incase).
This is something we are trying new this year to reward each side for taking out part of the command structure.
Medic positions can be exchanged at the CP.
You may not "raid" a dead medics kit.
You may not steal TQ's from the enemy.
TQ's are issued once - if you lose them, tough shit.
Abuse of the medic rule/game mechanics will get your squad sent back to the CP.
YOU LIVE AND DIE AS A SQUAD - LEAVE NO MAN BEHIND!
There will be no barricading of doorways/hallways/stairwells. Leave objects where they are inside the buildings. Objects outside can be used to reinforce your positions (to a certain extent, dont get crazy).

You may only mortar an adjacent sector on the map from a sector you control.
If your squad is killed you must leave the mortar where it is and give up your mortar card if you are asked for it.
The other team cannot move your mortar but you can reclaim it if you can make it back to it.

Each team will must contact the Fire Control Centre (FCC) to call in mortar support on Channel 2.
Mortars can be fired from a sector your team controls to hit an adjacent sector.
Fire Mission Cards will be given to the squads with the mortar with passwords for calling in mortar missions.
Once the password is accepted the mortar team can fire their selected rounds and game staff will clear the area.
While the area is being cleared no one may enter the area until an all clear has been called by game staff.
Flags will remain unchanged.
Trying to call in a Fire Mission without a proper password will be denied.
Only 3 mortar rounds will be issued at a time.
All rounds must be used on the card before re-supply.
A mortar re-supply consists of a squad going back to their CP and obtaining a new card from Command.

You can not steal the other teams mortar - If a mortar team is killed the mortar stays put and the FCC card is surrendered.

Eye protection must be worn at all times during game play.
The spawn area can be fired out of, but not into from the other team (to prevent spawn camping).
This event is about squad integrity and having people work as a team/unit.
If you are getting low on bandages or ammo, pull your squad out and resupply.
Do not call other players hits. Concentrate on calling your own.
If someone isn't calling their hits, give them the benefit and keep shooting them until they call it. If someone is repeatedly breaking the game rules or cheating - report them to game control and they will be dealt with.
Do us a favour if there is an issue. Please have the squad leaders work it out. If they cannot, call game control. There will be approx 400 people in attendance at this event, names and description will help.
Dead men do not talk and can only say "Medic" - This is your only warning.
1) You will call hit, take out your red kill rag and drop to a knee.
1) Stay where you are and wait to be healed by a medic - No bleed out.
2) You will remain where you are until you are healed or your squad pulls out to resupply.
3) Another team member can drag/carry a wounded person out of harms way with no help from the "wounded player."
If you find yourself blocking a doorway, stairway etc, please move a couple feet out of the way - Don't be a bullet sponge/meat shield.
A medic can heal anyone they wish (minus RECCE) . Keep in mind if a medic from another squad heals a member of your squad, try and get a TQ from them to replace it.
Ricochet's do not count as a hit - it must be a direct hit.
GUN HITS DO NOT COUNT
