Which Laser Tag Gun Is The Most Popular?
The debate about which model is the best laser tag gun is on-going.
One of our fundamental values here at Battlefield Sports is "what you see is what you get". In other words, the bigger models like the Morita Sniper Rifle shoot further than the compact Scorpion SMG.
Battlefield Sports currently makes eight laser tag gun models.
We asked Battlefield Operators around the world which was the most popular laser tag gun model on their battlefield. NOTE
: There is a caveat that some Battlefield Operators only have one model of laser tag gun in their business, and so, naturally that would be the favorite.
Here are the 5 most popular laser tag gun models.
Number 5: The Honey Badger
Inspired by the Honey Badger weapon in Call of Duty, this Battlefield Sports gun is popular with the milsim crowd. It is perfect for those going for a Battlefield LIVE theme.
This model is good for close-quarters battles. Its robust build, realistic look, an light-weight design, has proven popular (particularly in Norway). Just over 3% of respondents chose the Honey Badger
as their favorite.
Battlefield Operators can also customize the gaming gun by adding a forward hand-grip or sling (or both!).
In SATR the system there is also a special weapon emulation just for the HB14. The Honey Badger emulation has the ability to change from subsonic to the supersonic mode
and back again.
- The supersonic mode is the default. This default mode is long-range and has the normal muzzle flash.
- The sub-sonic mode is short-range, with reduced (but not eliminated) muzzle flash and a lower sound volume. This is ideal for stealth work.
Number 4: The Spitfire
was actually the very first design in the Battlefield Sports arsenal. And it is still going strong.
Its design has gone through several iterations over the years but the basic look and feel has remained the same.
Its front and rear metal tabs have been inspired by the famous Uzi machine pistol.
Many paintball field owners and adventure park managers have chosen the Spitfire model because it is compact and robust.
Battlefield Operators from the United Kingdom and Norway said that this model is the most popular in their fields. In fact, 10.7% of respondents said that the Spitfire was their favorite.
Number 3: The P90
is one of our most authentic-looking laser tag gun models. While not an exact replica it was inspired by the FNP90 personal defense weapon.
The P90 was made famous, especially among sci-fi buffs, as the weapon of choice in the long-running TV series “Stargate”.
It is a bit heavier than the other popular models so it works best for adult gamers. It is good for operations going for the Battlefield Sci-Fi theme
Battlefield Operators from Australia, the UK and Belgium indicated that the P90 was the most popular laser tag gun model in their neck of the woods.
Number 2: The Second Most Popular Laser Tag Gun – The Scorpion
More than 32% of Battlefield Operators listed the Scorpion
as the most popular laser tag gun in their operation. This makes it the second most popular model.
Operators from Australia, the USA, and the UK indicated that they preferred the Scorpion.
The Scorpion is a stalwart of Battlefield Sports’ gaming gun arsenal.
This tournament grade gaming gun is designed for exceptional performance and durability. The current design is the fourth iteration in the history of the Scorpion nameplate.
The silhouette with its bent magazine housing endures. This Scorpion model makes a bold statement in a compact body.
Number 1: The Most Popular Laser Tag Gun – The Cobra
An overwhelming 42.9% of Battlefield Operators surveyed said that the Cobra
was the most popular laser tag gun model in their business.
Battlefield Operators from six countries voted for the Cobra. They were from:
- the USA
- Spain, and
The Cobra is a combat model that is lighter than many of its compatriots because it is made from fiber-reinforced polycarbonate, rather than metal. Because it is lighter is it popular with youngsters. It is a good choice for those operators to look to embrace the family-friendly Battlefield TAG theme
The Cobra is, is in fact, the best-selling model in the Battlefield Sports arsenal.
