All the fields I've played at have a 10-20 ft rule that they enforce rather well. That being said, there are some (usually people who play on teams or the die hard weekend warriors) who don't observe that rule.

There are several things I take into account:

1) Age. If they're under 14, no bunkering.
2) Rental. Generally, I won't bunker any rental.
3) Speedball vs. Woodsball. It happens more by accident in Speedball because of the pace. I still hate doing it if it happens and will usually apologize to the player after the game. Woodsball, I've never gotten close enough to bunker. It's rather difficult.

The exceptions:
1) Cocky Team players. Sorry to anyone if you are, but I can't stand them. I've been playing for nearly 15 years. I'm a rec player. When I bought my own gear for the first time last January, I bought an Ion. Some of the field team's players who are much younger with "Mommy and Daddy's money" were laughing about my Ion. While my brother-in-law (stock A-5) and I were waiting for other rec players to show up, 3 of these kids challenged us. We played them in 3 vs. 2 and beat them 6 out of 8 times. I mowed a couple down with some extra Heat (literally, I was shooting Diablo Heat ). It felt good because these cocky little bastards thought they were going to walk all over us. I've been playing since they were either A) in diapers or B) non-existent.

2) Die hard Weekend Warriors. Everyone knows these guys. There are usually 4-8 in a group in full camo (not knocking camo because I still wear mine...it's durable as hell). They start talking trash from the moment they pick up their rentals. These guys usually think they are above the rules and start the bunkerfest first. They also have a tendency to wipe and ignore the field boundaries. What they don't understand is that if they want to bunker me, they are taking their 98's at...what...maybe 9/sec against my DM5 or Quest. I may come out bruised, but they're coming out limping.

3) Wipers. All cheaters get something extra, but wipers get even more. I still follow my age rule (a 10 year old doesn't need 15 rounds, but he's get 4 or 5 and a small lecture/warning after the game: "Do that again and you'll get to see how fast I can empty a hopper.").

To recap, I generally hate to bunker period. I don't really care to be bunkered because I don't care how much you play, it still hurts. Even if it is only one or two shots.

It's a "Golden Rule" thing. The whole "Do unto others" thing.

I usually just pop around the bunker and yell bang and tell them they're dead. That's usually enough for a noob who's crapping his paints at that point anyway. But on occasions like those, I think it's the ref's job to keep a lookout for the noobs and call they out once a player gets into position to bunker. If however, the noob turns to put his gun on you, he's fair game, in that case, I feel its more in self-defense. Overshooting in any event is wrong.

I would have done the same as you. now i try not to light people up as much as i can weather there noobs or not. now if someone gets caught in my cross fire then thats their fault. i think you need to go out and play hard no matter who you are playing. now if excessive team stacking is going on then you are just being a dick and you want to do nothing but bunker noobs all day then you are a ******* and will never get better and will eventually get what you desereve but no bunker noods is ok hopefully they will learn from it. they are going to get it sometime if they keep playing.

^^^^That doesnt always work^^^ One time I was playing walk-ons at my local field, and there was this little kid he might have been like 9, well I come up like three bunkers in front of him and I figure I will just try to one ball him, so I just lean out, all of a sudden that kid puts like 5 balls right on my mask, turns out that little kid has played longer than me and has better gear than me, I was like WOW !!! So dont always judge a little kid by his age (havent you seen The Omen)

I never bunker noobs, I just use the surrender. This is only for the nice players though because some noobs so stupid (no offense to them) that they just turn and shoot you a couple times. This isn't that bad until they start telling their friends about how you were right next to him and since his reflexes are so AWESOME he got a couple shoots off before you did. don't worry I then had no problem lighting that kid up to show him a lesson in how to politely accept mercy. I still only shot him twice in the head, and maybe once in the stomach.

if they're out on the field, they should be able to take getting bunkered. i will still be nice to them and try to shoot them in the pack or face so it doesnt hurt them that much.
