Combat Skirmish's equipment was started in
early 2006. It is a popular sport in 22 countries around the globe, including
Singapore. Combat Skirmish Singapore is the only company that provides outdoor
infra-red powered combat simulation games.
Why play Combat Skirmish?
Combat Skirmish has been used
for the following:
Combat Skirmish is ideal for
teambuilding and related training as we do not track individual performance
but rather we monitor the performance of the team as a whole. Stronger players
will have to help out weaker players to ensure that the team wins!
Using scenarios that are designed
to bring out specific learning values, we are able to use this interesting
game to bring out important learning values.
Combat Skirmish vs. Paintball
(combat skirmish is not paintball)
Guns used in Paintball, as the
name suggests, shoots out coloured pallets using compressed carbon dioxide
guns. It has a age limit of 18 (required by law), kids from 15 to 17 will
require parental consent to play this combat game. Paintball can only be played at
designated areas and usually the game involves 2 teams of 5 aside. Participants
will need to wear some protective clothing together with masks, long sleeve
shirts and long pants (we suggest jeans) to play this game. It can be painful
when you are hit, especially at close range, sometimes bruising may occur.
Having said that, we do know of some people who love the idea of shooting
people (physically) & inflicting pain. haha..
The weapons used in Combat Skirmish,
on the other hand, are custom made for combat simulation purposes. They use
infra-red beams, the same technology that our television remote controllers
use. It runs on batteries, shoots out harmless infra-red rays
and makes some noises as it does so. Our combat simulation games
does not involve projectiles therefore making it safe to use in any indoor or
outdoor settings. It is suitable for anyone who likes combat games,
who enjoy a little bit of running around and dodging opponents' fire, and
people who are not too keen on getting any form of pain or bruising from the
shooting. It is also safe for children as young as 5 years of age (with parental
supervision). Being non-contact in nature, Combat Skirmish is more acceptable
to ladies and children.
Combat Skirmish vs. Laser Tag
The factor that distinguishes
Combat Skirmish from laser tag is that Combat Skirmish can be played outdoors
under broad daylight and it is mobile, meaning the equipment can come right
to your doorstep (provided the building management approves). Laser tag is
usually played in a dark room and the class 1 laser (also harmless to human
beings) need the controlled environment to work well. They also have sensors
built at the premise to track the individual scores of players. Combat Skirmish
can be played in any open areas, under daylight, sheltered areas or at night.
Combat Skirmish does not track individual scores, instead we track team performances.
Weapons used in Combat Skirmish
The weapons used in Combat Skirmish
are realistically built to simulate real weapons. The Spitfire and Scorpion
weigh around 2 kg and the Commando Carbine is about 3kg. They also spot realistic
reloading time and clip sizes (the number of "rounds/ammunition" in a magazine).
The Scorpion is designed for close quarter combat and therefore has a range
of about 60m. the Spitfire emulates a mid range assault weapon and has a range
of about 80m. The Commando Carbine has the longest range and if you were
to use it, you will probably be hiding somewhere far away and shooting at
your enemies (up to 120m!).
The weight of the guns adds another
dimension to the combat game, especially when doing training or teambuilding.
It deters participants from dashing around aimlessly and "forces"
them to take time to strategise, think and delegate duties before carrying
Where can we play Combat Skirmish?
Combat Skirmish is safe to play
at most parks, condominiums, open fields or even inside buildings. We will only
need the approval from the relevant authorities. It does not involve any projectiles
and therefore will not leave any mess. Combat Skirmish is also the only combat
simulation game in Singapore that is able to accommodate up to 35 players
at one go! That means, less time waiting and more time playing! The minimum
number of people required to play Combat Skirmish (in a private booking) is
10, however, we do hold weekly public shootouts where individuals can participate.
