Nerf Laser Tag Phoenix LTX Guns Review
Nerf Laser Tag Phoenix LTX Guns-Product Overview
The Phoenix LTX guns from Nerf/Hasbro has settings for Team 1, Team 2, and solo play (every man for himself). After reading on Amazon apparently you can even form a 3rd team by setting the switch between 1&2. All players wishing to be on the same team just adjust their guns to the same settings and you’re ready to play. The next setting is to say whether you’re playing indoor or outdoor. The last setting is the Game Over Rate either set to 10 or 25. This is how many hits determines when you’re out of the game. Make sure all players have the same setting.
To begin play, the trigger is pressed which gives you a 10 second countdown before play begins. Opposite the trigger is a Shield button which can be pressed if at any time you need a 5 second safety moment, possibly while running to a new zone. During that 5 seconds, you cannot shoot or be shot. After so many shots, you’ll have to reload your clip. A spring loaded button releases the clip which you then just pop back in to resume shooting.
Nerf Laser Tag Phoenix LTX Guns are great for all ages
The beauty of these guns is the wide range of people that can enjoy them. Easy enough for young kids and fun enough for teens and adults, the whole group will be running around the backyard or house shooting each other. Barriers can be set up outdoors for things to hide behind or if you’re lucky enough to have a wooded area, the trees can be your natural barriers. We have also used trash cans, large plywood boards, and wood pallets for outside barriers. Inside, you have all the furniture in the house for barriers! These are great for birthday parties or even family get togethers.
(Literal Laser Lines are not seen through the air with these laser guns 🙂 but you definitely can tell when you’ve been shot!)
Nerf Laser Tag Phoenix LTX Guns are cost effective
Averaging $30 a piece, plus 6 AA batteries, this is not a bad investment especially considering that these are reusable. Use them for a birthday party, then later use them for the backyard BBQ, then even later for a youth activity or school carnival. Pretty soon, the initial investment spread over several activities, seems very cheap.
Nerf Laser Tag Phoenix LTX Guns are durable
You won’t find any cheap parts on these guns. Just Durable plastic. These guns should last a good while. The only thing you’ll have to replace is batteries. They are designed quite well. Even if dropped, the chance of breakage is small. Over time you may eventually have a sensor go bad (I’ve had 2 guns go bad but they were 8 years old). I started with 4, and 2 are still going strong 8 years later. I just bought 4 more so now I have a total of 6 working guns and just used for my daughter’s 12th birthday party!
Nerf Laser Tag Phoenix LTX Guns are Fun
Who doesn’t love the challenge of being the last team or man standing? And restarting the game is as simple as everyone repowering up again. Running around with friends or family shooting each other is great fun and who knows maybe you can get Grandma to play too! This is the ultimate icebreaker if you need one. No need to sit around talking about work or the kids or religion or politics, just grab a laser tag gun and have some fun!
