How Laser Tag Works
- Tagger (Laser tag gun) is a model of weapon that shoots with invisible infrared rays, that are absolutely harmless to humans (like the infrared rays in a TV remote control).
- Laser Tag Headband is a regular strap worn by a player with infrared detectors fixed on it, which detects infrared rays from the adversary's tagger. Vest is a clothing worn by a player, which also features hit sensors.
So each player’s set usually consists of a Gun + Headband or a Gun + Vest (or both).
Depending on the settings, when headband receives the hit it notifies the player that they are wounded or killed and disables the tagger if necessary (briefly if you’re wounded to imitate pain shock or completely until you’re revived again if you were killed).
The player's Tagger in accordance with predefined settings decides whether:
- the player is wounded (decreases hitpoints, temporary disconnects sensors and Tagger of the player) or
- the player is killed (permanent disabling of the player's Tagger).
