How To Make Battlefield Sports Laser Tag Guns

The Battlefield Sports laser tag guns are famous for their ergonomic balance, these gaming guns are not just functional, they are gaming props that look and feel authentic.

The status within the gaming community comes not just from the fact they are well built but amazingly the software can be customized to the Battlefield Operator's exact specifications.

Battlefield Operators, for example, can specify customized sound effects.

They make up to 250 per month. Running at full capacity the production line can produce up to 30 gaming guns a day.

The construction of a Battlefield Sports laser tag gun begins with its chassis or enclosure. Battlefield Sports offers two main types of frame: fiber-reinforced polycarbonate or light-weight aluminium.

The hull design reflects the different designs available, from compact Sub-Machine Guns to full-sized Sniper Rifles.

The Scorpion SMG model, for example, combines

  • 10 different precision-cut aluminium metal components
  • one precision cut glass lens
  • 11 different electronic parts
  • one custom red dot scope,
  • one re-chargeable NiMh heavy-duy battery
  • 39 assorted screws
  • and more than 6 feet (2 meters) of cable.

Within the frame or laser tag gun enclosure is housed the nerves of the laser tag gun. The laser tag system itself is patented.

The heart of every Battlefield Sports laser tag gun is the SATR engine.

The patented SATR system enables real-time hit feedback, so gamers know when they’ve got their opponent.

More, it works peer-to-peer so without complicated installation, the set-up is 100% portable.

No need to wait for a print out, gamers get instant feedback. SATR gives gamers real-time stats as they go, plus a game score and session score. The session score is the gamer's accumulative ratio. Gamers can also track their own statistics, such as shooting accuracy, number of tags, number of de-activations, on their own gaming gun in real time.


"For our metal gaming guns range we use aluminium because it is light-weight and resistant to damage," said Peter Lander, Founder, Battlefield Sports.

The aluminium is powder-coated in a variety of colors.

"For our polycarbonate models we use fiber-reinforced polycarbonate for maximum robustness," he said.

With the enclosure painted and the electronics ready to go, the next step is assembly.

"Timing is of the essence," said Adam, the Tech CO "we have to make sure we have all the components on hand ready to be installed at the proper time otherwise the whole production line can crawl to a halt."

Once assembled the laser tag equipment goes through a thorough quality control check. 

That way Battlefield Sports delivers exactly what the Battlefield Operator ordered.
