When playing laser tag at the local bowling centre, you’re going to have times of playing defence and others when you’re the one attacking the other team. There are specific strategies you can put into place if you want to stay on the attack and get tons of points for your team. Below, we’ll share a few easy ways to do better in the arena when on the offence.
Go After the People Who Are Less Adept
This might seem like an obvious statement, but it matters when you’re in the laser tag arena. Sure, you can try to get points shooting at those who are great at the game, but they are going to have strategies that make this harder. Going for the younger players or those who are new to the game is the best way to rack up points for your team.
Focus on Firing Instead of Aiming
Unless you’re good at laser tag, it’s often best to focus on firing as much as possible rather than aiming to get the best shot. If you pull off six shots and get one hit at the same time as it would take to aim and get one shot, you might as well go with the former. There’s always a chance that you will get more than one hit and help your team win.
Turn Sideways to Shoot
Have you watched action movies? You want to hold the laser gun the same way action stars do in the films. You should turn sideways and turn your face over your shoulder to aim. This is a great way to aim, and it makes you a smaller target, so you play offensively at the same time.
Don’t forget to have a good time out there! It can be fun to go up against the biggest competition sometimes, so these rules are only guidelines. Get out in the arena and see what works best for you.
