Deliberately done, absolutely not. Break it, you bought it, if you don't compensate for your piss-poor respect of other's property, you should be black-balled in the community. Accidents do happen - it's up to game control to decide whether an accident, or on purpose and/or out of malice. This is an honor violation. maintenance of the honor principle is the tantamount goal to keep in mind, with airsoft. This is different from a benign disablement of a device or belonging in the course of game play.
I can understand that if there was a way to disable the defensive device without damaging it, it would not be physically destroyed. However, in the case when an individual brings a device with no real way to disable it except by actual destruction - what is the proper call here when game control/hosts have not set ROE's for such a incident?
Examples of this:
- a sentry gun that autonomously targets and fires upon enemies;
- a floodlight to deny cover;
- the only way in to a building is locked or barricaded;
- a flying uav for recon;
- a eod bot or rcxd.
Is it right to take a UAV down by shooting at it? It's the only way to disable it but by shooting it, it'll probably be permanently damaged. Where do we draw the line? Unless these are prohibited by the game hosts, they should either have mechanisms for safe disabling or be allowed to be destroyed if brought to a game.
This is why I started this thread.
