These are the new and updated official game rules for Infestation: The New Z

Failure to follow them will have consequences, so please understand them thoroughly.


1. Respecting authorities in the game servers:

  • Moderators are authorities. Respect their warnings and instructions... Arguing with them directly will only cause you to get banned.
  • If you feel you've been treated unfairly by a moderator/admin, contact ElChupacabra.

2. Insults:

  • Hate speech will be taken serious (racism/xenophobia/homophobia/etc...) and will most likely cause a ban.
  • Keep in mind that TRASHTALKING is part of the game. Trash talking and harassment are two completely different things.
  •  - Trash talking: Calling other players noobs, making fun of their play style, offending their skills during PvP.
  •  - Harassing: Going after specific player for no reason just to aggravate them, offending them with personal things, talking shit about their families with the intention of clearly offending.      

              Trash talking example:

              Player 1 killed Player2

              Player 2: Wow, you're such a noob. Stop camping like a fa***t. 

              Player 1: L2P. hu3hu3. noobs, u suck.

              Player 2: fu*k you! You can't fight so you bring 10 man to fight

              Player 1: You don't have friends, get off the computer and go make friends.

             This is a clear example of normal in-game trash talk. Don't waste our time with reports of people being toxic.  

  • Provoking players in order to "get them into trouble" may also result in a temporary ban. If you are willing to talk trash to other players, no matter the tone, you should be willing to get it back. (NEW)
  • If we see any patterns on reports, as in, with the sole intention of getting someone in trouble rather than feeling offended, you will be punished harshly. (NEW)
  • Be VERY careful when reporting players for disrespect and such. Your behavior prior to it will have a direct effect on it. It may nullify the report and it may cause you to be punished for it as well. (NEW)

3. Cheating:

  • Cheating is unacceptable and will always be dealt with an instant PERMANENT ban. 
  • Moderators and admins do NOT have to present YOU (banned player) any kind of evidence of you cheating.

4. Advertising:

  • You are NOT allowed to advertise external websites in our public servers. This will result in a ban. 
  • You CAN advertise your Live Stream AS LONG AS you're currently streaming. 
  • You CAN only advertise clan website in Group/Clan chat. 

5. Names:

  • You are not allowed to use racist and offensive names (Read rule 1 about insults). If you do, you will be banned until you agree to change your character name or delete it (You will NOT be provided the GC for it). 
  • Cloning staff member names is a bannable offense and will result in an instant ban with no questions asked or second chances.
  • Pretending to be a staff member for any reason will also result in a ban. 
  • If you've had your name stolen or cloned, we will change the other player's name AS LONG AS you are able to prove your name is unique and it is CLONED. 
    • Example: If your in-game name is KittenSlayer and someone is using that name we will check if your name "means anything" (in the sense of Youtube Channels, Twitch broadcasts, etc...). If it's just a "coincidental cloning", no names will be changed as those are just words put together.
    • Example: If your in-game name is Luke The SoCal King and you have a youtube channel/an "online reputation", we will change the player's name.
    • Some cases are very unique and it will take us some time to confirm/study, so please, don't spam us with "coincidental cloning" situations, like common words/names.

6. Regarding bans:

  • If you get temporarily banned, you have to wait the time set. 
  • Anyone can appeal their bans. By appealing it, the ban will go under review and you will get a response.
  • If you are banned temporarily and try to evade that ban rather than appealing it, you will be permanently banned. (https://playnewz.com/support)

7. Refunds:

  • If you refund any purchase made, you will be automatically banned. 
  • If you had an issue (GC not delivered) and would like it reviewed, please contact [email protected] for further support. 
  • There will be no unbans for people who refund purchases, not even on a completely new account.

8. Black-Market Trading:

  • You are NOT allowed to sell and buy items on other websites for real currency. 
  • Accounts are personal and only the owner of the account is allowed to change their emails.
  • We will NOT give any kind of support to people who get "scammed" while trading outside the game.
  • You CANNOT advertise selling/buying items for currencies other than in-game currencies (Game Dollars and items). If you do so, you will be banned. 
  • Items marketed outside the game might get deleted, removed or wiped without notice and accounts might be banned. We will NOT restore these items, so do it at your own risk. We highly recommend when buying high priced items to buy them directly from the marketplace rather than trading them for a little bit less and causing your items to be removed and you losing your money. 

9. Lost items due to bugs:

  • Items lost due to server and/or bugs and/or crashes will NOT be replaced on demand. They will only be replaced if:
    • You can prove the issue was on our side (connection interruption)
    • It was a bug in the game and not on the computer.
  • There is no use spamming us to ask for a replacement if you cannot prove the item was lost.
    • For example your game crashes and your car disappears. There is no way for us to check the veracity of that, since the server registered you going into the server, placing a car then leaving the server. 

10. Scamming: 

  • Scamming is punishable by a ban.
  • You need to prove that you were scammed by someone in order for us to take action.
  • Scams using outside currency will NOT have support.
  • Trading GC for GD is not getting support by the staff.


11. Glitching: 

  • Abusing any kind of glitch or bug to take advantage is bannable.
  • Glitching through our "invisible walls" is bannable. If you can't walk through it normally, you cannot cross it.

12. Macros:

  • Abusing macros is bannable.
  • Any kind of macro that helps you shoot/aim will get you banned permanently.

13. Rep Boosting:

  • You are NOT allowed to kill friends over and over again only to gain positions on the leaderboards.
  • If you are caught/proven to be rep boosting, you will have your reputation completely wiped and GD will be removed.
  • If you are caught for the second time, your character will be DELETED.
  • If you are caught for the third time, you will be permanently banned.

13. Respect group sizes:

  • If we set a group size for a server, it means you CANNOT, under any circumstance play with a bigger group. 
  • Leaving the in-game clan to be able to play in more than 3/5 people in PvP server WILL cause a ban.
  • Playing with a bigger group than the group limit in Battle Royale WILL result in a temporary ban first, then removal of ALL your Battle Royale victories and it will escalate to removal of items gained from that game mode (Skins and Skinboxes or GD).

Please, just respect the other player's fun as well.


14. Stream-Sniping:

  • Stream-sniping is a bannable offense that will cause increasingly temporary bans and if it continues, it will become a permanent one. 
  • Streamers suffering from this have to show proof of it happening.
  • We will not share the information on how we decide they are stream-sniping here, but if you are going through it, feel free to PM me for information. We don't want them knowing. 

15. Tournament and Events: (NEW)

  • We may decide a team/group or a specific player may not join an event or a tournament if their behavior is unacceptable. 
  • We reserve the right to cancel any signup if we feel the team does not deserve to participate in the event. 
  • Behavior and ethics during the tournaments may affect your participations in future ones.

16. Punishment and proportional punishment: (NEW)

  • In cases where we feel the regular punishments listed above are not having the desired effect, we may take extra measures of correction towards the player. 
  • Our rules are not open for "interpretation" and you cannot bend them freely to appeal your punishment. 
  • You may be affected in another topic for breaking some basic rules repeatedly. 

Rules are subject to changes and adaptions based on individual cases without notice
