If laser tag conjures images of blacklights, fog machines, and guns emitting small "pew-pew" noises, Battlefield Live SLC could be something of a shock. Rather than confine players to darkened rooms, this laser-tag outfit unleashes squadrons onto outdoor battlefields where they'll need to take cover behind trees, ambush ravines, and try to stay camouflaged against the terrain. Their weapons get a major upgrade, too. Contestants choose from an armory that includes guns such as a P90, Scorpion, and a Spitfire machine pistol, each with high-tech controls and realistic sound effects that indicate when an enemy is hit or is very good at simulating his own live-fire sounds. Or upgrade your game with the new AEG Airsoft Laser Tag guns. Get the pop of airsoft with the safety of laser tag.
To excel, gamers need more than just an itchy trigger finger or a light-saber bayonet. Teams receive a mission briefing, enemy intel, and a map of the terrain before engaging with the enemy, so strategic thinking and ability to work with a team are the most important skills.
