No Vest, No Kidding

No Vest, No Problem: Battlefield Sports' Vestless Laser Tag System is Taking the Game to a New Level

The Battlefield Sports laser tag system, known as "SATR," offers a new way of playing live-action games that is both innovative and unique. Unlike traditional laser tag systems that require players to wear a "Battle Suit" or vest, this system is designed to be played vestless, making it more flexible and versatile.

This system is so flexible you can play indoors or outdoors. Unlike traditional arena laser tag / indoor 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.)


The SATR laser tag system is portable, compact, and can be played indoors or outdoors. It features an integrated sensor in the barrel and two others that are attached via a robust six-core twirly cable, which ensures that players don't lose them. The head sensor domes at the end of the cable can be attached to a headband and are designed to be hit or tagged from 360 degrees.

While Battlefield Sports Optik sensors can be attached to a tactical vest if required, the system's vestless design is a significant advantage. 

If the model chosen has head sensors, then it is designed to be used in conjunction with colored headbands. The headband is specially designed with velcro and elastic. These headbands usually come in two team colors, such as red vs blue or black vs green. If running with three or four teams, players can use various combinations of colors.

Vestless Is More Hygienic

In a post-COVID world, hygiene is an essential consideration.

With this vestless system instead of relying on a sweaty "Battle Suit" between switched between players, this system uses headware to tell the teams.

For example, imagine a group of 60 school students playing the 3-point Domination Game across several rounds. The first group of 20 gamers play in round one play, then switch to the second group, and so on. Most students nowadays adhere to a "no-hat, no play" policy, so players are often asked to wear their own hats. The players wear a hat or bandanna over their headbands. The headbands are designed to go over some other headwear. This way the Operators can switch the headbands and place it over the child's own hat between games.

This is designed for hygiene in mind, so the hair of the first child doesn’t touch the hair of the second child.

Operators can use jungle hats with a full brim (image 1), and bandannas, 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.
