Tips for Winning a Game of Laser Tag
If you are heading to your first game of laser tag at the local bowling alley, you may be wondering how you can make it look like you’re a professional. While you aren’t going to be an expert just by reading a few tips, it can certainly give you a fighting chance in a game. We’ve compiled a few of the best tricks to make use of in the arena to have a good time and keep up with everyone else. Nobody will have any idea it was your first time.
Always Be Moving
If you do nothing else from this list, keep this tip in mind at all times. You should constantly be on the move during a game of laser tag. You might find yourself tired a few minutes in and you can rest, but first, you want to find a spot where you can see the action to protect yourself while you get your breath. The reality of the game is that when you are moving, it’s harder to hit you. So run, walk, and roll around as much as possible to make the game harder for everyone else.
Take in the Surroundings
As soon as you are able, you want to get a map of the arena in your brain. Look for areas where you have a nice vantage point for rest. Know what areas are too open and dangerous to take advantage of. It might take some time to truly learn the ins and outs of the area, but once you do, you’ll be a much more formidable opponent. Take the time to run around and take it all in early and you’ll do better in the long run.
Go for Quantity Over Quality
Unless you have lots of experience sniping, it’s better to go for quantity instead of quality in your shots. It’s likely you’ll make more points shooting at targets in general than waiting and trying to get an accurate shot. Some people never get great at sniping and that’s okay, you can still do well without that skill. As long as you’re taking shots and hitting some of them, the points will add up quicker than you think.
Wear Comfortable Clothes
Assuming the laser tag game at your favourite bowling centre is dark with illumination from black lights and laser guns, dark comfortable clothing is the best option. White and light clothes will make you stand out and get you targeted. The best option is comfortable black clothes. You also want to avoid tight-fitting clothes since it’s harder to move around in them.
Don’t worry, with these tips you’ll do great at your first laser tag game. Keep moving, shoot at targets, and have fun. That’s what really counts in the end.
