How to win laser tag?
As for tactical actions, we advise you to follow the basic rules, which, perhaps, will not lead you to victory but will definitely save you from being ""dead"" in the first minutes of the battle.
1. Check the field of fire. While there is no enemy around, assess the situation, remove anything that prevents you from aiming comfortably: the rocks under your feet, the branches that cling to the barrel are unlikely to help you hit the opponent with precision.
2. Don't forget about the enemy's defeat sensors located on the headband. Do we have to explain where to shoot first? It is necessary to watch not only the enemy, but for your own actions: keep your head down, look around fast, hide just as fast, try not to be an easy prey for a sniper.
3. Recharge the weapon in time and keep track of the number of cartridges. When you're alone with the enemy, it's a shame to lose the fight because of the lack of ammo in the tagger.
4. Constantly move. Change the locations, calculate the course of events. Short runs from hiding to hiding will cause your enemy a lot of trouble. Remember the golden rule: run slowly - die quickly.
5. Communicate and interact with your teammates. The victory is at stake, so signal your allies about the enemy's location, his movements, and discuss further actions with the chief officer.
