3- Invisible glitch on Hangar 21 is not allowed. Any wall glitch used is not allowed and will be punished.

4- Jet ram is allowed unless the ram took place in the enemy base, in which case it is baserape.

7- Stealing vehicles is allowed, unless the theft took place in the enemy base, in which case it is baserape.
