Rule #8. (Smoke shoot) You may fire SMALL ARMS ONLY into smoke. Do NOT grenade spam ordnance into smoke.

Rule #9. (Camp Rule) You must not camp an area. If deemed to be camping you will be given a BEACON. Move position to remove it.

Rule #10. (Squad move) Live as a squad die as a squad. There are two separate Squads on either side. These are clearly labelled. ALL Rifles MUST move with their squad. Use your map and regroup with your Squad in every instance.

HQ have reinstated the Radio. This is for a couple of reasons. To allow fresh spawns a means of communication with their squad, what route to take back to the squad etc. If you are hearing Radio chatter from your Squad, you are too far away. Tighten it up and get back in formation.

ALL Officers SNCOs and NCOs are expected to take a leading role in herding their Squad together and keeping them together. Any LONE WOLF actions will result in a warning and or a kick.

*YOU DONT WANT YOUR TEAMMATES KICKED. Tell them to pull their heads in, let them know when they break a rule.

*Obviously there will need to be a strong self-control utilised. Rifles must monitor each other in order to adhere to the Rules, ensuring an overall better collective experience. HQ hope to provide a Tactical and tense firefight between two squads of 1st Rifles.

*Admins are expected to take a leading role in enforcing the Rules.

*Credit (These R.O.E. have been pilfered in part from an excellent tactical community a few of us Rifles found back in COD 2 days online. 82nd Airborne)
