View Rules


Matches played in the “SNIPING” category must abide by sniping rules. Failure to follow the rules will result in a warning or a disqualification. A warning occurs when a player commits a minor rule violation. In the event, a player receives a warning, they cannot accrue any more warnings during the match, or they will receive a disqualification. A disqualification occurs when a player commits a grievous rule violation. If a player receives a disqualification in a match, they receive a loss, and players will move to the next match if the series is incomplete.

Players must use the correct sniper rifle, equipment, perks, and attachments. For more information on class setup, see the “Class Setup” rules section.

Each sniper shot performed in a sniping match must be a quickscope, jumpscope, or no-scope — a hardscope results in a match disqualification.

Quickscope is a shot performed by aiming-down-sights for approximately 1.00 seconds.

Jumpscope is a shot performed mid-air and is aimed-down-sights for approximately 1.00 seconds.

No-scope is a shot performed without aiming-down-sights.

Hardscope is a shot performed once the player is aimed-down-sights for more than approximately 1.00 seconds.
