Laser Tag Mines are devices placed in common “camping” spots within the Lazer Gate arena. The Mines activate randomly, tagging any player within its range. Mines will flash red briefly and beep before activating. When a mine is actively firing it will strobe white and have a continuous beep. If you are unlucky enough to be tagged by a mine you will be deactivated for about 15 seconds and you will lose points.
Pro Tip: The mine will give you a chance to own it briefly. It will flash green which is the only time it can be programmed. Tag the mine while it is green and you will gain its allegiance, temporarily. When you have programmed the mine, the next time it activates it will give you points for any players it tags! Best not to worry about this unless the game is full enough that there are players going by constantly.
