Does the price of X-Blaster include laser?No, X-Blasters do NOT include laser which is an option.
The reason to not include laser in X-Blasters is that 8 of 10 clients do NOT require it.
Laser beam is only visible in game arenas with smoke machines. X-Blasters are mostly used in simple environments at FEC's and Leisure Centeres which do not offer smoke.
So why to pay for a cool feature which will not be visible.
That is our philosophy “Offer products which are fit for purpose in a great price. Do NOT put everything inside a product and charge more for what is NOT needed”
Questions regarding all VEQTOR Laser Tag systems
How do you know you have been shot or have shot someone during the game?
After your Blaster is hit it gives a vocal announcement “You are hit” and stops being active for 5 seconds. This is a time to escape and hide again.
You can tell you hit an opponent when his blaster's flashing lights are off and you hear his blaster 's announcement “You are hit”.
I'm afraid that having solid state trigger instead of normal trigger can be a problem for players. What do they say?
Players don't have any problem with using solid state trigger. What is even more more surprising they don't miss the traditional trigger at all. When we ask them about it they explain that it is simply because one has to do the same thing - move (pull) his finger to shoot.
So in the end solid state trigger makes no difference for the players and a huge difference for operator maintenance wise.
How long does the charge last?
Charge takes several hours and should be done overnight.
The charging units have “Battery Guard” which stops charging after a battery is full to prevent from overcharging and destroying a battery.
X-Blasters use the best LiON batteries with NO “memory effect”.
What other items would you suggest for supplementing the experience?
Typical experience boosters:
- laser beam and smoke (for X-Blasters only)
- Laser Tag computer system for controlling game environment with:
- active arena targets (acting as base, energizer, mine, ammo dump, air raid)
- sound and game control,
- results download, print and display,
- and more...
- Vests with extra sensors and lights
Why do I need to have more blasters than players?
There is a rule in all player's equipment based games saying that you need to have more hardware sets then users. It is simply because problems with the equipment (most often the simple ones like battery not correctly loaded etc) tend to happen during the game when there is no time for checking what's wrong. All you should do is to give out another blaster from the shelf and mark the faulty one to be checked.
The last thing you want is disappointed player because his blaster is not working. To avoid it you need to have at least 20% more blasters then your maximum amount of players.
