How to Play Laser Tag

A match isn’t just a matter of pointing and shooting (although you can play that way—what matters is that you’re having fun!). If you want to score major points, follow these tips:

  • Scout the Arena: Arenas are typically dark and equipped with black lights, which will make it harder to find the best areas to hide from the opposing team. See if a copy of the arena’s layout is available online or from the staff.

  • Learn the Rules: There are tons of different ways to play laser tag, whether you’re playing as part of a team or against a friend. Some games give you more points for hitting someone, while others will dock you points for getting hit. Adjust your strategy accordingly.

  • Understand the Equipment: When you receive your gun, take a few sample shots and see if the sight is aligned. If your laser is off-center, adjust your shots accordingly.

  • Have a Strategy: Generally, look for positions in the arena that cover your back and give you a wide vantage point. Look for flashing lights from the opposing team’s vests, and shoot in a sweeping motion that covers their chest sensors.

  • Communicate: Your team is your most valuable asset! Work with a partner to take enemies by surprise.

The exact rules and objectives of your game will vary depending on the game you’re playing, but one thing is always clear: the most important part is having fun!
