  • Bangs have a 3 meter kill radius unless you are behind “hard cover”.
  • A bush, small tree or netting does not constitute “hard cover”.

    Netting like this is not hard cover.

  • Plywood buildings / barricades, corrugated steel panels and other man made wood structures count as hard cover.
