7 Tips to Master Laser Tag
Once you’re suited up, enter the arena as quickly as possible so your eyes can adjust to the arena’s lighting.
Avoid groups or clusters of players as this makes for an easy target.
Choose a defense or attack strategy – or a combination of the two. If you decide to go on the defense, ensure you have a good cover to avoid being caught off guard.
Look out for the beams! Laser Tag gear comes with flashing beams, so aim and shoot once your target is in clear range.
Once you’ve identified a target, aim your laser gun at the chest, upper body, arms and waste. These areas will ensure a greater chance of success when firing at your opponent.
If you get hit, seek cover quickly and use the time while your sensors are deactivated to avoid the line of fire.
Use group strategies to intimate your opponents. Team up with someone you can trust and move swiftly through the arena together.
