General Tips for Waterfights

First and foremost, water fights are meant to be a fun and exciting way to keep cool during the summer months (or all year 'round if one is in the tropics or simply crazy!). The general purpose of water fights is to drench one's opponents. It should always be remembered that these games are for fun and no one should be intentionally injured. If one's intent is to hurt people, one had better look elsewhere.

General Guidelines

  • For a good start, check out the Water Warfare: Basics page.
  • See the Organized Water Warfare (10 rules or less) for a quick organized water warfare rule set.
  • Read the Soaker Combat Rules section for a community co-developed more detailed overview of common organized water warfare rules and common variations
  • Use clear, clean water only. Anything else may clog up your blaster and/or injure other players.
  • Declare game-time duration and area before starting. A timespan and area should be designated as the combat zone with filling stations for either side clearly noted.
  • Water fights in general should remain a non-contact game. The idea is to soak your opponent, not injure them.
  • Blasters/Soakers should remain with their owners. Taking/Stealing a water blaster from another can result in more physical conflict as opposed to water blast exchanges.
  • Only spray those involved in the water fight. Attacking unarmed innocent bystanders can lead to serious complications (especially if they happen to be bigger or be carrying a real weapon i.e. not just a water blaster).
  • Before any game begins, make sure all players have a good idea of the game rules. If needed, assign a non-combat person as a overseer/negotiator should a conflict regarding a rule arise.

Things to be Cautious Of...

Depending on the age group involved in the water fights, the types of tactics and weapons used will vary. Be cautious of mixing young children (6-10 years) with adolescents and/or adults. Some kids end up bawling their eyes out if they get drenched or even aimed at (Not a pretty sight.)

Also, beware of any animals (both domesticated and wild) in the playing field. Some animals become irritated and even hostile if drenched, potentially attacking. Shooting at animals should always be avoided.
