Is suppressing fire, "blind fire"?

Looking at most rulesets for the majority of games posted here I see a rule that forbids "blind fire"

does this mean that suppressing fire laid in to the position of enemy designed to keep their heads down is not allowed?

Do you need to be able to see a target to fire at it? Is it ok to fire into the area known to harbour targets, even if at that particular moment you can't "see" them?

I wonder this.. because it is difficult to win a firefight if you are not allowed to have one.

As in like, putting your arms around a corner with your weapon, not seeing what is there, and firing. Could be potentially dangerous because someone could be like, 2cm away from the tip of your gun.

blindfire refers to firing while not looking where you are shooting, or not looking down the sights. Suppresive fire is shooting in the area where the enemy is, but you must be looking down the sights or aiming where you are shooting. Hard for me to put in words, so here's a picture of blindfiring:


Notice the player holding the gun above his head and just firing away.

blind fire refers to you for instance crouching behind a barricade/shelter, then raising your rifle over it and firing without looking at anything. Same goes for firing thru holes in said barricade/shelter without looking.

Suppressive fire is completely allowed, it just means you'lll run thru ammo.

edit * man like 3 peeps beat me to it lol

At our local indoor place, "blind fire" is when you stick only your weapon around a corner, in a window, etc. They use the rule that you must be able to see a target to engage it.

Just consider Blind firing as not being able to see where you're bullets/bbs are hitting. It's a rule for safety and to provent injuries.

OK, good

That clears up what is considered "blind fire"

Not looking where you are shooting.

very good, this is what I presumed... but in order to not presume anything,

I thought I would ask

Like it has been said above, blindfiring is very different then supressing fire. Supressing fire is very necessary so come out on top in a firefight. Heck you'd be suprised how many people duck for cover when you're in a firefight and you're out of ammo, but you shoot a few blanks while reloading. Sometimes you won't even need to be pointing anywhere near them and they'll hit the ground.
