The Battlefield Sports Laser Tag System Has No Vest, No Kidding
The Battlefield Sports laser tag system "SATR" is portable, compact, and versatile and it also works vestless. This system is so flexible you can play indoors or outdoors. And unlike traditional arena laser tag there is no need for a vest. The system has an integrated sensor in the barrel and two others that are attached via a robust six-core twirly cable. (We use a cable so you can't lose them! Here is another blog about why wireless sensors are not practical.)
There are two head sensor domes at the end of the head-sensor cable. The head sensor domes are designed to attach to a headband. These sensors can be tagged or hit from 360 degrees.
Our Optik sensors can be attached to a tactical vest if required, but the benefit of our laser tag system is that vests are not essential.
The headband is specially designed with velcro and elastic. These headbands usually come in two team colors like:
red and blue, or
black and green.
Or if you are running with three teams, then you can use:
red, blue, and yellow, or
black, green, and blue.
Then the next step is that the players wear a hat or bandanna over their headband. The headbands are designed to go over some other headwear.
This is designed for hygiene in mind, so the hair of the first child doesn’t touch the second the hair of the second child. In a post-COVID world, hygiene is a very important consideration.
Most students nowadays adhere to a "no-hat, no play" policy so we often ask the players to wear their own hat (see image below).
Or we divide the group into two, with half wearing a jungle hat with the full brim (image 1), and half wearing a bandanna, with no brim (image 2).
Because Battlefield Sports’ sophisticated optoelectronics means the game range can be more than 300 feet or 80 meters, even in daylight.
So by having teams with different headwear makes it easy to tell the red team from the blue team. Or the "jungle hat" team from the "bandanna" team, even from a long distance.
A Perfect Laser Tag System for Mobile Operators
Because there this laser tag system is vestless it has proven popular with mobile operators and family entertainment centers alike. For transportable ride companies who need super-fast through-put the Battlefield Sports can also be customized to not include the head-sensors. That way the gamers simply shoot each their opposition by aiming for the barrel sensor.
Each unit is made from tough, fiber-reinforced polycarbonate. The Cobra model in particular is popular because of its ability to work even in the rain. It was designed with an IP rating of 65.
This laser tag equipment is perfect for school-aged kids and up. It is designed for youngsters to hold the phaser with two hands. The SATR laser tag system offers real-time game statistics right on the individual phaser screen.
Popular integrated games include:
TDM aka team elimination match (using two Battle Boxes each set as Medic Boxes)
Capture the Flag (using two Battle Boxes, two sets as a combination of Flag boxes and Medic Boxes)
Domination Game aka Capture & Hold (using three Battle Boxes, one set as a Domination Box - this acts as the central objective -- and two set as Combo Boxes -- this act as Medic Boxes and an Ammo Re-supply point).
And, of course, you can create your own games and missions. The options are endless!
