We believe in quality. We take great pains to take care of our equipment, train our staff and educate our clients to take care of our equipment so as to ensure that when you play laser shootout with us, our guns are in tip top condition. Regardless of a casual fun shootout or birthday party celebration or coproate teambuilding booking, you will still get to use the most advanced guns from us.
Our equipment is hand made from USA, using advanced technology in the laser tag arena. Each of these guns has a Player ID, where you can choose from 100 preset names to represent your call sign. On each gun you will see a LCD screen that has 2 lines of text and numbers.
It says something like “R030 C19” on the first row, and “002Pinky” on the second row. “R030” means you have 30 rounds in this clip (or magazine, the “casette” or container where you keep bullets inside – it is not physically there, it’s just tracked electronically). “C19” means you have 19 more clips or magazines left with you. These numbers could change, depending on what we set them to be in relation to the mission scenario that we are playing.
“002” on the second row means this player has 2 lives left, this number will reduce each time the player is “shot”. The “Pinky” or another name that you see after that on the second row, is the Player ID, each gun is preset to a Player ID, usually during a teambuilding session, we will have time for you to change your Player ID.
The guns are also able to do real time, independant gun scoring, meaning, when someone shoots you, at that very moment, his Player ID will show up on your LCD screen. Ofcouse we will not advise you to check who shot you when you get shot, you should be taking cover so that you will not get shot again. You can actually still tace back on who shot you for how many times at the end of the laser tag session by pressing the black button. It will also show you who was the player who “took away” your last “life”.
Another advantage of this new batch of guns is that they can be set to Indoor setting where the beams are more focused and the power is reduced for CQC (close quarter combat) so that the problem of beams bouncing off walls is greatly reduced. Those of you who have played with the older guns indoors or at night will know what we mean by that.
The range of the new guns are also superb, under broad daylight, the largest gun that we have, the charger, can go up to 200+ meters where as the XM22 (the medim range one) can still do a good 100+ meters, even the Razor can do very close to 100 meters under this extremely bright condition. We are also able to reduce the power in terrain where you don’t need that kind of range.
The equipment are all made for combat simulation purposes and therefore are of realistic weight. The Razor is about 1.8kg, the XM is about 2 kg and the charger about 3kg. For kids parties, we will recommend the Razor for ages 5-7, XM for ages 7 and up and the charger only for children of 10+ years, if they can stand the weight.
We have had a few participants that are younger than 5 years old but their parents were hand holding them as it is unlikely that they can carry the Razor by themselves. They still enjoy laser tagging other people very much, just like parents will hold them on kiddy rides.
The size of our eqiupment is also very ideal for combat games. The Razor is about the size of an uzi sub machine gun, it’s 29cm in length, very handy and very popular with the younger children and ladies. The XM is 54cm in length (with stock retracted) and comes with an adjustable stock, makes a very ideal medium range weapon. The charger is the big brother’s choice, it’s 70cm (with stock retracted) and you will be able to stay far away from your enemies and still shoot them down.
During a booking, based on the age of the participants, we will bring a mix of the 3 types of guns if possible, however, if all the participants are young children, then we will only bring the small guns. However, if you do have special requests, just let us konw and we will accommodate to it as long as the guns are not booked for another event.
Words can never explain the excitement and exhilarating experience that our laser shootout can give you. You will have to try it out for yourself!Filed under laser tag equipment | Comment (0)
A: They sure do generate interesting sound effects! Each tagger can produce either SCI-FI noises (think E.T. and maybe X-Files) or real modern day military sounds (along the lines of “Black Hawk Down” and “Saving Private Ryan”). Every time you pull the trigger, reload your rounds, get hit or deactivate the tagger, it sounds off! How much more interactive can you get!Filed under änergy laser shootout!

A: Our current assortment of laser taggers range from over 1.8 kg (4lbs) to 2.9 kg (6.4 lbs) depending on the unit.

A: The laser tag equipment uses harmless infra-red light to emit a coded signal (beam) (NOT real lasers) that is picked up by three head sensors and goes through the onboard computer to register a hit on the taggers.Filed under änergy laser shootout! FAQ, laser tag equipment | Comment (0)
A: No laser is used in our ‘laser tag’ equipment. Instead, harmless infra-red light technology is emitted for signals between the equipment. We use the same infra-red emitting diodes that are used in 90% of all remote controls, so änergy shootout! is as harmless as operating your TV or car remote control. There are also no physical projectiles involved in the operation of the taggers so they are completely safe and poses no danger when used as directed. The Health Sciences Authority of Singapore has further certified that the equipment are not arms under Part I of the Singapore Arms & Explosives Act, Chapter 13, because “no missile can be loaded and discharged from them and no noxious fumes or electricity are discharged from them when the trigger is pressed”.Filed under änergy laser shootout!
