There was a time when laser tag equipment was big, bulky and looked more like something you would see in an episode of The X Files, than anything from this plant, but over the last ten, or so years, the technology has become much more sophisticated and the equipment is much easier to use, when defeating your enemy out on the field.

Essential Equipment

When setting up a Laser tag event, there are a few pieces of equipment which you absolutely must have, in order to have the best laser tag even possible. Depending on whether you play indoors or outdoors, your equipment requirement will differ.

Of course, the most important pieces of equipment are the guns, themselves. A good laser tag gun will have a range of between 500-1000ft and will be programmable for group activity.

Indoor Play

Indoor laser tag establishments can be found all over the country and are particularly popular with children, teenagers and family. These typically consist of a darkened arena in which the game is played, using hand-held guns and infrared packs, which hold the targets. Apart from this, it is likely that a computer will be linked to the packs and guns, in order to keep score during the game, so a victor can be declared, when the battle is over.

Outdoor Play

Outdoor play is relatively new, and is more popular for corporate events. As the lasers are expected to perform well in the daylight, they will need to work well over a longer distance, so more powerful guns and targets will be needed, than would be the case for indoor play. A large field will also be needed — paintball fields are ideal and including laser tag events at your paintball field provides an excellent source of extra income.

Interactive Game Enhancement Modules

These are often used to add an extra dimension to the game and make it more fun for the players. They can be used as a team base, or can be used as a station to power up. In order to power up, you much exchange one point from your time in the game, thus erasing one kill.

Places chosen for playing, generally is full of huge trees and greenery, which gives a forest setup in order to increase the adventure in the game. In olden days, there were no guns available, so the kids used small sticks or pieces of woods as their weapons. However, the guns used presently almost look like the real ones. There are advanced guns, which are available in the market and they are heavier as well as innovative.

It is a good idea to provide the toy laser tag guns to the kids, as they go crazy on seeing the newly manufactured toy guns.

The Latest Generation of Laser Tag

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011 | Permalink

by Todd Rip | ezinearticles.com

Laser tag is a game of skill and precision. In laser tag, the goal is to hit another person’s targets (strategically placed on their body) with your laser (infrared light). Most often, guns are used to shoot at someone’s vest. When shot in certain places, the shooter will gain points. Occasionally (in large games), there are teams. Each team will have a ‘base’. When players of opposite teams hit the base with their laser, that team is shut down for a period of time. When the vest is hit, it disables the gun from shooting for a period of time, allowing one to still be shot.

History

The US army was the first to use a series of laser combat training guns. These guns work the same as normal laser tag guns. It was referred to as the ‘MILES’ system, and allowed intense training abilities in the army. Some combat training is still used today. A man by the name of Carter invented the first arena-type laser game. He surprisingly thought of the idea after watching the film ‘Star Wars’. In 1986, Laser tag was revealed as an at home game. Laser tag toys were being purchased more than any other game or toy at the time. The toys are continued to be made, and beloved by children around the world. Arena games are popular among adults, as well as children, and are played for recreation.

Equipment and Arenas

There is special laser tag equipment for both, indoors and outdoors. When played indoor at an arena, the laser is visible through the use of fog. A series of vests, and guns are assigned to all of the players in order to experience the entirety of the game play. In order for an indoor arena to properly work, one must understand the necessary materials. A large area is required with many things to hide behind. A smoke machine, and black lights are also necessary. Scoring devices are also required to be in the arena. On the other hand, an outdoor arena needs higher powered laser guns and targeting devices.

One of the newest Laser tag systems is the ‘Lawn Warfare: Light Strike’. These guns are available for purchase in three different types; the add-on accessories, and customizable features make this a highly desired gun. This gun is mostly used for personal use at home. The proper set up is necessary for both indoor and outdoor areas. Black lights, as well as smoke machines are not necessary for outdoor game play. Basic guns, and vests are required for any type of game play. There are places of business solely for the adventure of laser game play. Many paintball fields also have laser tag for the younger players that are unable to paintball. For a small fee, players are allowed to play in an upbeat environment.

The latest generation of laser tag guns is the Light Strike series from Wowwee. The Light Strike guns have many new features that regular laser tag does not. Each of the 6 different guns have 4-6 different ammo types built in depending on if it’s a pistol or rifle. Each gun has a health meter built in that shows your health and once your health runs out you have to “respawn” by pressing two buttons simultaneously.

Each ammo type has a unique fire sound, reload sound and fire/reload time. There is a shield button that lasts for 15 seconds and reduces incoming shots by 50% damage which can be used once every 2-3 minutes. Every Light Strike gun has a volume button and headphone jack allowing players to get sneaky because when the headphones are plugged in the external speaker on the gun goes silent.

Each gun can be on one of 4 possible teams and is determined by the color selection on the gun. Also, there is fire mode button that allows for single shot or 3 round burst mode. A Special target allows for unique game types like capture the flag and more.

Laser tag is a unique experience filled with thrills, strategy, and suspense. Certain skill is acquired upon the continuous game play, and new guns are always coming to the laser tag world.
