Gameplay

Do not deliberately go out of bounds or perform other skips, for example:

- Dark Carnival 1: It is forbidden to skip the bridge area by jumping on the crashed truck as it breaks Tank spawns.
- Dead Center 1: It is forbidden to skip any part of the map by using a shortcut by jumping downstairs via window or balcony.
- Hard Rain 2 & 3: It is forbidden to spit on top, inside or underneath the elevator as long as it is moving and the doors are closed.
- Hard Rain 3: It is forbidden to walk on the roof on the right side at the beginning of the map.
- Swamp Fever 2: It is forbidden to pass the airplane without triggering the crescendo.
- Swamp Fever 3: It is forbidden to pass the crescendo event by jumping on the rocks nearby.

Some of the above have been patched out, but are used as examples of unacceptable skips.

It is forbidden to stay in the saferoom during a tank fight. Survivors may enter the saferoom one by one only to take ammo. The exceptions to this rule are the following maps: Dead Center 1, Dark Carnival 1, No Mercy 1.

It is forbidden to spawn the charger and charge the survivors at the same moment you are getting the Tank.

It is forbidden to block the opposing team from either ascending or descending on a ladder (either as survivors or as infected).

Changing crosshair appearance and using customized glowscripts is allowed. Any other modifications to the appearance of the game are not allowed.
