The maximum speed will be set in the rules between 60 and 80 m / s, and can never exceed 90 m / s. For this, the paintball fields have a speed meter.
The markers must remain locked to avoid unintentional shots before starting the game, if it is eliminated, or after finishing the game, for which we have two security systems. The insurance is available to the marker and the so-called pacifier, which is a system to plug the barrel (there are several types).
Disposal Rules Elimination

A player located a short distance from an enemy and having him completely shot may request his surrender. If he accepts verbally or raising his hands, he is eliminated from the game, if he does not accept, try a hostile action or delay the response, the attacker can fire to eliminate it.
