How Does The Tagger Work?
The tagger is designed to look and feel like a real battle. We use army replica taggers with red dot scopes that can be used to hit an opponent’s headband or tagger censor. When hit, the tagger will say “man down, man down.” We do not have “stinky” vests to wear, as the censor is on the tagger itself. We also give you a briefing on how the tagger works before you play.
