Vividness in paintball is rather low. Paintball markers are unlike military weapons, and aiming with this marker is very difficult, the ball flies crooked and the whole fire range is only 100 feet. Shooting high is practically impossible. The ball bounces from shrubs, small branches, etc. Hitting from mines and grenades is almost impossible to fix because traces of paint remain blind. Airsoft realism is much higher, but the need to suffer from pain can outweigh all such advantages. In addition, the firing range in airsoft rarely exceeds 250 feet, so imitation of a sniper or machine-gun fire is almost impossible. Imitation of wounding also is not possible. An airsoft player can either be “alive” or “dead”. Playing in high buildings or shooting from the ground to the 4th floor is not possible because the ball trajectory is too curved. Using grenades in confined spaces is also ineffective because it is impossible to prove that the balls from the grenade hit someone if you have not come into the room and seen the moment of the explosion.
In Laser Tag, you can use real deactivated firearms rebuilt into Taggers that shoot more than 1,000 feet, all players can not cheat, and can use a variety of weapon types: pistols, machine guns, assault rifles, sniper rifles, etc. You can throw grenades, place mines and all these devices give a clear electronic hitting of players. You can make special settings for damage, wounding, shooting range, reload time, number of clips, etc. You can also set a different fire rate for different types of weapons, even for a bolt and semi-automatic sniper rifles. You can use collimator and optical sights, night vision goggles, camouflage, etc.
Shooting range in laser tag allows you to play in large areas, storm high buildings, support attacks from the rooftops, make long flanking attacks, play at night and so on.
Almost all these things are not available in Paintball and Airsoft.
You almost do not need to depend on the weather and the wind speed, in contrast to airsoft, where it affects the trajectory of the ball flight. Infrared ray in laser tag is always a straight line and in short distances, it is much closer to reality than the paintball and airsoft ball trajectory.
