    Quick Tips (try F1 too):
    • TTT is a game of innocents (and detectives) v traitors
    • As innocent, never kill another player without valid reasoning.
    • Killing a traitor will make you a proven innocent to others!
    • Detectives are always innocent and can press “C” to access weapons.
    • Traitors are outnumbered but know who is who, press “C” for weapons.
    • Traitors be mindful of your fellow traitors and warn them of explosives!
    • Type !taunts in chat to open the taunt shop.
    • Type !report to report a random death match (RDM) if killed without reason.
    • Pressing “F3” will open the point shop and sprint by double tapping “W”
    • Special event rounds are always team vs team. No FFA killing.
    • Please ask if you are unsure of something, most of us won’t bite.
    • Be friendly! Your fun should not cost other people their fun!
    Rules of RDM
    RDM is a common acronym for “Random Death Match”. It describes any unprovoked kill made in game and is punishable if reported by the victim. This applies to every innocent kill and to traitor kills made against other traitors. Below are the main rules of RDM.
    • You may not kill players based solely on:
      • Sounds, player models, trails, location or weapon used
      • You calling live checks, you may use them but not kill from them
      • You claiming rooms, you have no rights to restrict rooms
      • Player destroying traitor equipment / weapons
    • You may call a KOS (Kill on Sight) on a player for:
      • Player damaging you or proven (e.g., detective) for any amount
      • Player calling KOS on you or on a proven player
      • Player damaging a proven player
      • Player attempting to cause damage to you and/or others, including via incendiary grenade or discombob on certain maps
      • Player traitor baiting such as saying “I am a traitor
      • Player use or possession of unclaimed ‘traitor’ weapons (ask if unsure)
      • Player in traitor only room (without claiming to be so)
      • Player is actively helping a traitor
      • Player destroying/discarding the map tester, innocent victory items or detective equipment
      • Player clearly not identifying a corpse with opportunity given
      • Identifying player as the only unproven left alive (besides yourself)
      • Player being AFK (in overtime only)
    • You may relay a KOS on a player for:
      • Someone else’s not invalid KOS on player (unless player called them out first)
      • A valid High Sus called on player once it becomes overtime
      • Detective or proven player calling a KOS on / or shooting player
    • You may call a High Sus (KOS in overtime) for:
      • Player clearly not following a valid KOS called
      • Player refusing to use a traitor tester
      • Player refusing to shoot G3 (to prove its unsilenced)
      • Player claiming proven with clearly false reasoning
      • Player following you after giving them 3 warnings, each 5 seconds apart
      • 95% belief of player performing KOSable action above
      • Player believed to have activated a traitor trap

      • If it is within 1 month of premier, it is always spoiling.
      • If it is within 1 - 12 months, be considerate about the wishes of other players before spoiling content. It may still result in a ban.
      • If it is over 1 year old, you may speak freely unless it is against the request of a player.
      • It will result in a ban based on the spoiler severity and intent.
    Disclaimer: Not EVERY rule needs to be written, if you are told not to do something by admins, follow it (Community Managers have the final say on rules)

    In short, don't be a belligerent asscandle. The admin team are here to help you, not to be a pain in the ass =)

    If you have an issue with the rules or conduct of a staff member, please PM @Ailuros or @Xylo on discord or the forums.
