For your convenience, we've put together a list of game rules and regulations that will apply to all tournament matches this year. These rules are technical limitations of the tournament mode in the game. All tournaments arranged using this mode, automatically conform with these rules. However, this mode does not apply to some other rules, which can be modified by the tournament’s host. Please make sure to study them in detail before taking part in tournaments.

The concept we swear by is fairness. Participants of Gods of Boom tournaments must follow the special rules, the purpose of which is to equalize the opportunities for all parties, making the game fair.

Players must follow Terms of Use whenever playing Gods of Boom, including participation in any public tournaments. Tournaments are considered public when they have an organizer, a set of rules, exact dates, and match times. Breaching Terms of Use on the public tournament may lead to a permanent suspension of a player's game account without any prior notice and any other temporary measures.

In this regard, we as developers reserve the right to make any changes to these regulations, if we think it will improve the overall balance and quality of the tournaments.

Note: We're constantly monitoring the situation around all of the other weapons. A lot of our esports athletes are interested in Quicksilver changes. Let us assure you that we're thinking about its balance tweaks, but we need a bit more time.

Weapons

Available weapons and their grades are shown in the table below. Rows in red indicate weapons that are banned in tournament matches due to their unsuitable balance or for other similar reasons.

If the weapon’s grade is listed as “special”, it means that the weapon was altered, and its stats fall outside the regular grades. Special grades are necessary to make certain weapons more in balance with other guns in the same category.
