    I was just wondering for curiosity sake if you throw a jarate while on blue if it's freehiting or baiting, I would consider it baiting so the duration of jarate the reds are allowed to chase the sniper who threw the jarate at them and once the jarate affect has finished they may no longer chase the blue sniper and must carry on with normal orders, this is just an idea and my opnion

    "Provoking Prisoners to attack you or rebel by getting in melee range of a Prisoner on purpose, using projectiles, jarate, stickybombs, revving the minigun, joining them in the mini game or anything else that can be considered baiting."

    As for duration, I'm not sure. Blus can't order REDs to kill but you can't chase baiters, so it may be worth waiting for an admin to confirm.

    It's baiting, jarate, mad milk, stuff like that is baiting if thrown to the reds. And no the reds should not chase the sniper because all the reds will be killed for rebelling since they're chasing down the sniper.

    @Sakuya Izayoi@Sakuya Izayoi But why isn't the duration the jarate still on them still considered baiting since the yellow stain is still on them?

    Because reds cannot chase blues that are baiting since it's considered baiting. Also many people that tend to play blue decide not to read the rules so if they saw all the reds rushing one blue for throwing something on them, they will think they're rebelling and kill them all.

    Anything that can cause harm to reds, is considered baiting. Blue's have crits already so not too many shots are needed for a red to die. Add jarate + 1 missing bullet and the player is insta dead. Freekilled but on accident, could easily been prevented if the Sniper did not throw jarate.
    Also, some Guards may think, as Sakuya said, that the prisoner was rebelling and then kills the player. Any kind of putting prisoners in danger for no reason is baiting. No stickies, no jarate, no mad milk, ... Not even airblast.
    Unless it's defence on a freeday and they get into your melee range, then RED is baiting.

    I'm bad with wording so if you did not understand me, @Sakuya Izayoi@Sakuya Izayoi will translate c:

    Admittedly the blues don't gain any extra damage whatsoever on a jarate'd player :p

    Either way, the yellow piss-drip down the edges of the screen is just annoying, uneccesary and bait.

    So yea throwing jarate or mad milk at reds is baiting and no reds cannot chase the blue that threw it at them since chasing is rebelling and also he warden would be "Ok kill that blue reds." No kill orders on blues are not allowed so no if the blue it caught baiting with jarate multiple times than they will be slayed and removed from the blue team.
