Tickets

Price for Knight Sky is $65. Tickets are non refundable. Ticket swaps will be made through Hopup tickets and are no longer handled by OWP!

If a team is sold out and you procrastinated you may NOT purchase a ticket for the opposite team. If you think you are showing up and playing wherever you want you are wrong. A wristband will be issued at registration for the team you will play for. No exceptions. We do our best to keep our events balanced and this will no longer happen!

​​​Who Can Play

The minimum age to play is 16 years old. All players under the age of 18 MUST have a waiver signed and a copy of a driver's license by a parent or legal guardian signed as well!

Safety: (OWP) considers safety its #1 priority. Airsoft & Milsim is designed for the mature and level-headed player. Common sense and the right, fair-play, honest attitude are a must at our events.

Safety 

(OWP) requires everyone to have a barrel cover over the tip of their gun when not on the playing field, as well as magazine out and safety on! All pistols must be holstered.

All players are required to attend the safety briefing prior to the start of the game. A wristband will be issued once briefing is over and we will be checking them before game start. Anyone who does not have a wristband will have to wait until after game starts to go over the rules.

(OWP) approved face Protection must remain on at all times while on the field or chronograph areas. Do not remove face protection under any circumstance.

Fully sealed approved goggle systems must be used including approved full seal Airsoft goggles that meet or exceed ASTM standards. (ANSI Z87.1 and/or ASTM F- 1776-99a rated (or greater) ballistic eye protection will be accepted.)

There will be a Mandatory Ejection of any players lifting or removing goggles while in "goggle on" areas (Playing Field, Chronograph Area, Target Area) after being personally warned once. This includes any action in which a player touches his/her Eye Protection in such a way that the seal of the goggles is broken. NO MESH GOGGLES!

Lower Face Protection is highly recommended!

 

Cease Fire

Players or staff should call “cease fire” if you or another player is injured or loses their eye protection and requires immediate Admin/Medical attention. You will need to both vocally and via Comms (if possible) make the “cease fire” call with approximate location and details of the incident

Mandatory Equipment

Gun, Face Protection/Goggles, red dead rag, red dead light and camouflage to match team colors.

Recommended Equipment

 Helmet, boots, knee pads, gloves. Lower face mesh is recommended, but not mandatory.

NO

YOU MAY NOT WEAR RED, OR FLUORESCENT CLOTHING OR GEAR. Red represents dead on the kill rag and Fluorescent represents ref or staff. This would confuse players.

  • No Verbal abuse, name-calling, profanity, etc. will be tolerated.

  • No Stealing, vandalizing, or fighting. (you will be turned over to the police)

  • No Drugs or Alcohol.

  • No Barricading doors or windows

Ammo

 BIODEGRADABLE BB'S ONLY! Any weight BB can be used for game play after chronographs. (Metal or Ceramic BBs are not permitted to be used. If caught using anything other than approved biodegradable bb's, there will be an automatic ejection from the facility)

Dead Rag/ Dead Lights

 (OWP) requires every player to have a red "dead rag" and a red "dead light" on their person while playing. The red dead rag is to be placed on top of your head or held up high when you are hit to symbolize you are out during the day and the red dead light is to be used during the night. Any other color deadlight is prohibited. Game staff will be using a color other than red.

You are required to bring your own red dead rag and red dead light.

Mags

 At (OWM) Mil-sim games you may only use mid cap or real cap mags. NO HIGH CAPS, FLASH MAGS, OR DRUM/BOX MAGS ALLOWED. Exception being support weapons.

Hit Rule

  • If you are hit anywhere on your person or gear you are out.

  • Friendly fire counts.

  • All Hits count except for ricochets and gun hits.( when hit in the gun call “gun hit” so your enemy knows they were close. This prevents arguments of players not calling their hits.

MILSIM is a game of honor. CALL YOUR OWN HITS. Do not call opposing team players out. If you believe another player is not calling their hits, please inform game staff and they will look into it. Players caught cheating by not calling their hits will get one warning and after that they will be ejected from the game. 

After you are hit yell "HIT" or "OUT" and pull out your red dead rag or if it is night turn on your red dead light and make sure it is visible.

A wounded player must remain where hit and another player must simulate dragging the wounded player to a safe area.

Dead Man Tell No Tales. Which means that if you are shot, you may not communicate with any player in play, that includes on the radio. The only thing you are allowed to do is call for a "MEDIC".

Cheater Bomb

Each time you are caught cheating we will add cheater rings to the enemy cheater Bomb. After 10 rings are acquired , the opposite team command can choose to steal points from one Landmark control area during our next score check. Examples of cheating, high cap or flash mags, not calling hits, reloading on the field, etc. 

MEDIC RULE

  • At (OWM) Mil-sim games, the "medic" must wrap a medic strap on the arm or leg of the wounded player in order to revive them.

  • ONLY medics are allowed to heal other Medic players.

  • A medic must wear a patch or armband to represent they are a medic.(we do not provide a medic patch, so make sure you have one)

  • One Medic strap will be issued at registration to each player. It is your responsibility to keep it safe. We will not give out extra.

  • 2 medics per squad of more than 4 players. Under 4 players 1 medic per squad.

  • The role of medic can be transferred from one player to another, but only at your team's command post.

  • When your squad is completely out of medic bands and lives you must withdraw to your Command.​

  • Sniper teams of 2 players can medic each other but are not allowed to medic players from other squads.

Bleed out rule- NO MORE BLEED OUTS! We have decided to eliminate this rule to help keep squads together and teams from using main point Landmarks as hospitals.

SQUAD RULE

You may not return to your CP without your squad. This is a squad based game, therefore your squad must stay together. If we see you walking the field without your squad we will make you go back to your command and wait for them. Each squad will need to designate a squad leader to communicate with your Team Command. Squad leaders must report to command via radio. In the past (OWM) has provided team radios, however we have decided to discontinue this.

IT IS A MANDATORY WITHDRAWAL for your entire squad if you are out of ammunition, medic bands or water. It is the squad leader's responsibility to make the call and inform command. It's up to your squad if you want to incorporate fire team leaders.

 

SQUAD TYPES

Apocalypse will have 5 types of squads per team.

SNIPER SQUAD-

  •  A sniper squad is made up of 2 players; a sniper and a spotter

  •  You will start the game 20 minutes prior to everyone else

  • The sniper must have a bolt action sniper rifle

  • The spotter may use an assault weapon or a DMR. No support weapons

  • A Sniper squad may wear ghillie or leaf suits

  • Only 2 Sniper Squads per Team

 

RECON SQUAD-

  • A recon squad is meant to be more stealth

  • Recon can have 3-12 players.

  • primary objective of extracting the ammo cases.

  • Only 1 recon squad per team.

  • primary objective is to take control of landmark areas. You do the dirty work

  • There is no limit to the amount of Assault Squads per team.

GRENADE RULE

In order to kill a player with a grenade your grenade must discharge. (Thunder B's, Tornado, EG-67, Tag etc.)

​INDOOR-

  • 15' kill radius

  • can use hard cover to shield yourself from the blast. Be fair, a hard cover is not a net or a cardboard box.

  • Inside the Castle or the fort courtyard is considered indoors. Over the past 6 years we have realized that it is almost impossible to take these types of locations and this is an attempt to make these areas more playable

OUTDOOR-

  •  To kill a player outside a building with a grenade, it must discharge bb's and hit the enemy

TAG LAUNCHABLE ROUNDS-

  • Indoor and outdoor rules are same as throwables 

  • must come to a special rules briefing

  • must fill out TAG waiver

  • must have DEMO patch to be able to use TAG launchable products. (patch available at vending)

 

we do not allow the Paladin Chalk, Pecker Dummy, or Master Key Buckshot rounds

Smoke

 At (OWP) games, cold burning smoke is allowed but may not be used in buildings of any kind. Red smoke may not be used since it will be used by game staff only.

Drones

One Drone per team in the air at a time. OWP will not be responsible if anything happens to your drone. Please do not shoot at Drones. You will have to meet with EMR prior to game start to fill out a special drone waiver.

Radios

(not mandatory) but highly recommended for communicating with your squad.

- Squad leaders must have a radio to communicate with command. We highly recommend baofang uv-5r. (OWM) will no longer provide radios.

(absolutely NO radio warfare)

Reloads

You may no longer Reload mags on the field. You must go back to your CP or off the field completely to reload. You may still carry as many mags as you want. Support Weapons can carry as many box/drum mags as they want. Support Weapons can also use m4 mags if out of ammo or having mag problems. We changed this rule to make landmark areas more playable.

Mission

  • Main objective will be controlling Landmarks. Scoring will be taken every 1-2 hours. Landmarks are worth 1500-2500pts per score check

  • Finding Ammo can, reporting serial number to command, take ammo can to extraction point, wait for Recon to extract. 500 pts each

  • There will be clock bomb props, worth 200 points per hour of control, armed and moved by Demolition only. Must be placed within 20 yards(60 ft.) from Landmark area, only one clock bomb prop per Landmark

  • Missiles can be found by anyone but can only be transported by Demolition squad using the two man transport box. 500 pts each

(Missiles can be used by command to disable communications for 30 minutes and to destroy landmarks once we more to the north maps. We will use a flare and red smoke to represent a landmark destruction. If Landmark is destroyed it will be out of play for 15 minutes)

Communications - 1 Missile

The Town -1 Missiles

Castle -3 Missiles

The fort- 2 Missile

The City- 3 Missiles

The Bridge 1 Missile

Spawn Camping

(OWP) does not allow spawn camping at all. We created what we call the DEAD ZONE to help prevent this. Red caution tape will represent the DEAD ZONE. If you are in your DEAD ZONE and get shot, you are not wounded and can keep fighting. You may always shoot out of your teams DEAD ZONE but will never take damage inside.

(If you are shot while carrying a prop of any kind you must put the prop on the ground where you stand)

(you may only touch or move props if you are on a mission to do so)
