Ditching your gun.

Is it legal to set your marker down and leave it in a typical speedball tourney?

Say your marker or hopper broke and you were close enough to the flag to make a dash for the grab. So you set your marker down to make you quick like lightning.

Depends on tournament, last tournaments I've played at they have all been deemed Illeagal.

I think it has to do with looking like a ref running around like an idoit.

no, like a joy player took his pack off in a game, and carried it down the snake with him, but he went for the flag or something and left his pack, so he was out

nah, a pod only counts if its not used i think. even then maybe if the pod fell out, but if its shot, then your out but thats going to a whole other story

the paintball throw is true, but it didn't prove anything. the win was theres only because he was never out and he braught back the flag. the throw basically stopped the other guy from shooting the remaining player because of the massive confusion

no you may not go 5 feet away from all gear excluding pods, and squeegees.

so you cannot put your gun down hooper, pack anything but pods and squeegees down.

one tournament we played was so muddy that shoes didnt count as equipment if you lost them

also you are only out if your pod gets hit and you go back and pick it up... if its on the ground then its no biggie... in fact some people shoot pods just to be jerks

Yes it was at HB and no he didnt get him out he was shot before the kid threw it but he did it just to be sure.And the rules say it has to come out of ur gun so it wouldnt have counted but i was there and i was likE HOLY **** he threw a paintball at his face the crowd went nuts.

All of these are correct.Most tourney's go by the 5 foot rule.Your pod pack,gun,or any equipment excluding some things like used pods and squeeges.You could do this if the flag was 5 feet infront of you but then you might aswell carry all your equipment.If you do move within 5 feet and the ref see's you he will just call you out and tell you your out of the game.
