How to Play


Once briefed, players are equipped with a Gen7 Battle Suit complete with their own phaser. Players then take to the field to compete in one of multiple game modes.

In its simplest forms, the Individual and Team game modes, Laserforce requires players to score the most points. Points are scored by zapping the targets on competitors’ battle suits to deactivate them. Additional points are earned by zapping the interactive targets present in the arena.

 

Depending on the game mode, a player’s suit will be reactivated after a short period of being downed zapped. Advanced game modes contain additional rules and goals beyond just scoring the most points.

Players also collect achievements, rank up, and improve upon their position on the leader board.

Skill Levels


The skill level system is designed to reward the players with a higher skill level while still keeping a level playing field between the new and more experienced players.

As a result, L4 players must zap an L1 or L2 player twice instead of the usual once to power their suit down. At L5 & L6, a player must zap L1 and L2 players three times, and zap L3 players twice to power their suits down.

As you progress in skill level, you also again special abilities to use during the game. These abilities are only usable on the higher level players to keep it fair for our newer players.

L1 Recruit
Less than 1500 pts or less than 3 games played

L2 Gunner
1501 pts – 2500 pts

L3 Trooper
2501 pts – 3700 pts

L4 Captain
3701 pts – 5000 pts

L5 Starlord
5001 pts – 6500 pts

L6 Lasermaster
Over 6500 pts

Special Abilities


As players rise in skill level they are rewarded with additional abilities.

How do special abilities tie into the ones you gain on the battlefield by shooting the targets?

L1 – Rapid Fire
Rapid fire is activated by zapping two enemies in a row. You remain on rapid fire until you are hit. After each rapid-fire activation, the number of consecutive hits needed to reactivate it is increased.

L2 – Invulnerability
After zapping five enemies in a row, the player becomes invulnerable to all other players’ phasers for ten seconds.

L3 – Payback
Payback allows you to immediately power back up after being hit. Once down, hold the trigger for two seconds to activate Payback and come alive again. Your suit will notify you if you have obtained the Payback feature.

L4 – Missiles
Hitting an enemy with a missile rewards the player with more points than simply zapping them with the phaser. Stay locked onto a player until you hear the third high pitched beep and then let off a missile. You can only use missiles on L4 players and higher.

L5 – Reset
Reset allows you to zap a downed player even if you were the last person to hit them. Your suit will notify you if you have obtained the Reset feature.

L6 – Nuke
Nukes knock-out every other L6 player on the field no matter where they are. Hold the trigger button down for two seconds to activate the nuke. You must remain powered up for another three seconds until the nuke detonates.
