343 Industries has revealed what will get players banned from Halo 5: Guardians‘ competitive multiplayer Arena.

Arena allows players to go head-to-head with a level playing field. Each player will enter the Arena with the same weapons and abilities and must vie for control of powerful weapons and power-ups while maintaining map control.

Of course, being a controlled competitive environment, 343 is not going to take cheating or negative behavior lightly. The following offenses?if repeated?will see players removed from the Arena: Quitting, Betrayals, Idling, Intentional Suicide, and Excessive disconnects.

“If you repeatedly engage in negative behaviors such as the ones listed above, you will receive a ban and be prevented from entering matchmaking,” the developer added. “The duration of each ban is dependent on the offense and becomes more severe with each successive infraction, so continually killing your teammates to steal the Sniper Rifle will quickly lead to long timeouts from matchmade play.”

Halo 5: Guardians launches exclusively for Xbox One on October 27th.
