Rules

Weapon Specifications

ALL WEAPONS MUST PASS A SAFETY INSPECTION EACH EVENT.

Safety inspections are held by the Prop Safety team in the Logistics area or at SC Camp. Approved weapons will be marked in some fashion, and any weapon without that mark cannot be used in the game. You can bring any LARP weapon in to be checked, even ones that are not listed below in order to have it added to the list, but there are no guarantees a weapon will be passed, so be prepared!

All weapons and shields must be DRY during use at an event. Paint, adhesive, sealant, and lubricant cannot be done at event as they can get on other players, specifically in the eyes and on costumes. Repairs to weapons/shields may be allowed with approval by Prop Safety Staff both prior to and after the repair.

Combination Weapons
Attaching two Nerf blasters with their tactical rails as Hasbro designed is allowed and counts as a single weapon. Otherwise, no two weapons can be combined. Thus, bayonets and ‘gun-blades’ are not allowed, and neither is taping two blasters together.
 
Loaned Weapons
The game will not be able to loan weapons to you. Learn how to make your own weapons! Get started at Plastidip Artists Facebook group.

All drones must be ground vehicles, never flying, and approved by Safety Staff before being used in the game.
