First Laser Tag game of 2012
It was also the first outing of 2012 for the LTX DMR and it's refreshed paint job. I added some silver details and touched up a few other spots, including fixing my Orange tip on the end of the rifle. It performed well in every game and I truly enjoyed using it to frag people from across the park. It's range definitely showed at this game. The only other Sniper-class rival for it was Sundawg's custom LTX that tot's a lens arrangement from LazerBait. However, many games when Sundawg was on the opposing side, my team was able to get the jump on him by taking down his meat shields and surrounding him. One of those times, I managed to shave off the rest of his life points without him even being aware of my position thanks to the many distractions he had to aim at while he was flushed out of his spot.
We kept things simple, Team Elimination Matches on 25 hits for 5 games and a Zombies game to finish out the night. Teams were fairly balanced throughout it all too, so they were enjoyable but still challenging. Sometimes, teams end up being tilted one way or the other and the few times that odds looked like they would tip the scales, it still ended up being a pretty fair fight. Still, many of our matches ended in overwhelming odds, with 5-6 players still alive on the winning side when all was said and done. That, and our Zombies game wasn't very effective, since the Zombie horde took awhile to start growing large enough to pose a significant enough threat to the Humans. Most of the Human Veterans that I stuck around with held out on a hill overlooking much of the park, so Sundawg and I used our long range to shave off hits on incoming Zombies so they'd be easy pickings by the time they reached us. By the end of the Zombies match, there were still at least 10 Humans.
