No room for cheating in Laser Tag

Inability to cheat in lasertag


In paintball and airsoft, players cheating during the game actually is becoming the norm. We all have a desire to play for a little longer, so not everyone calls their hits. Not every airsoft player is honorable enough and calls their hits 100% of the time without fail. Many players consciously cheat. Airsoft society even has the definitions for such players. They are mockingly called zombies, bulletproof or plainly No-hit callers. The only thing worse than people not calling their hits is when people try to return fire after they were hit. The poor sportsmanship of such players is very bad for attracting new players to the game.

In paintball, it's a little more difficult but it's also possible to cheat. The player could always say that they were not hit, quickly wipe the spot, or they could say that the spot was left from the previous game, etc. Moreover, in paintball and airsoft, it is impossible to prove that it was you who has hit the opponent first. If it was a duel, then it is always a “one’s word against the other’s word” situation. These things cause a large number of game conflicts that would spoil the mood of all the players and lead to losing customers by these clubs. In Laser Tag, cheating is impossible. Not on electronics’ watch. If you have hit your opponent first, they simply will not be able to shoot you back, because their equipment will be disabled.
