Where I used to play, DMW's occur under the following premises:
- Can't signify in any way that the player is hit.
- Must not be traveling with dead players
- Must not use it against newbies (against regulars only, or verified wipers)
- Must not be heading off the field/toward staging

Where I play now, it really depends on the ref.

look on the brighter side; you could have gotten shot to hell, your friend as well and had no points to show.

Not to mention it's poor sportsmanship.

Yes, because taking advantage of people who don't have their head in the game is poor sportsmanship.

but they also take advantage of the people who are kind enough to not shoot someone who might be out.

Do you even know what good sportsmanship is? The fact that you are abusing the respect that the other team has towards eliminated players is bad enough. But it's also a sign of bad character, and poor attitude towards winning.

I wouldn't allow it in speed ball but I would in woodsball. I've hear about it all the time, a player has a pistol stashed under his shirt, he walks into an enemy bunker and pretends to be observing, then whips out his gat and says buenos noches

In my opinion, dead man walk should be illegal in airball, but legal under certain circumstances in woodsball.

When you're playing speedball and you see someone walking, you really have no way of knowing whether or not a player is out unless you shoot them for insurance. Dead man walking is a big way of defying somebody's trust and disrespecting them. They trust you not to pull something tricky when you're walking out, and DMW is like giving them a giant middle finger. Plus, the person dead man walked will no longer be trustworthy of anybody on the field, and they will end up giving everybody walking to the deadbox a few extra rounds.

In woodsball however, you can make a good strategy out of it. Everybody in woodsball is usually required to do the whole "gun up, barrel cover on" thing when they're out, so there is a definite way of knowing whether or not somebody is out. I will admit I've tried dead man walking in the woods, and I usually get 1 or 2 people before somebody catches on and I get lit to hell and back . Dead man walking and other "tatics" put an interesting spin on slow woodsball games.

I once heard the story of a "lethal camera man". A guy walked around with a camera taking pictures of everybody, so people just assumed he was media. He had a colored armband, no orange or yellow clothing, and was following all the rules of the game. Eventually he made it to the other team's base, took a picture of the general, then tagged him and said "You're out." I've also heard about a guy just walking around wearing a necklace with a barrel tied to it, and he would walk up to people and tag them with his barrel necklace, creating a successful barrel tag. Like I said, dead man walk just makes woodsball more fun.

Thumbs up

I have encountered this situations multiple times on the same field with different groups . I was on the bridge near the bell and both times it ended with the guy getting 15 feet from the bell before the team started asking me if he was hit I told them that there was no barrel plug and the player was not exiting the field. One ended with a nut shot and one very regretful 17 year old kid. And the other ended in full sprint for the bell glory . I was shot several times standing at the top of the bridge he dident make it to the top he face planted 3/4s of the way up the bridge covered in paintballs.

I see no problem with it as long as it is done within the rules i.e. no calling "I'm Out" or putting barrel sleeve on or gun up in the air. Ive even done it a few time. Yell out a curse or two hang my head and walk off with my head down till i get about ten feet behind their line. and i get lit to hell every dam time( cant shoot too fast with a pump) everybody argues about it the laughs when they realize i got one over on them. i gets new people thinking. when im reffing someone doing this can go one of two ways 1. it really pisses people off and then i put an end to it. 2. It gets those people who have a real habit of not puting their hands up or barrel sleeves on to do it so they dont get bonused balled lol

Or those who don't know any better.

It's especially bad when doing walkon play with newer players. Where I ref dead man walking is allowed, but during the safety briefings I make sure to tell everyone three additional things:

1. Dead man walking is allowed
2. Keep your gun over your head when you're hit, if you do not you will be shot at.
3. If you see someone walking up the field with no barrel bag on, or their gun below their head, shoot them.

Personally I'd love to ban dead man walking, since I'm one of those "nice guys" who won't shoot you if I suspect you're out. But this at least minimizes the "WTF, he was out then he shot me!!!" that newer players can experience.

You should explain what you mean Boog. A lot of people don't know the story about how Todd won Rage the ESPN first championship.

There's nothing illegal about it. the other team should get their heads straight if they see somebody on the other team walking TOWARD them.
