QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Q: How does the XTAC Pro sense a shot?
A: Once the XTAC Pro is calibrated to your gun, it has a microphone that registers the sound of the trigger action. When you pull the trigger an encoded infrared laser pulse is shot from the XTAC Pro. All hits or kills are registered by the targets and recorded on the XTAC app.
Q: What kinds of airsoft guns can be used with the XTAC Pro?
A: The XTAC Pro is compatible with any gun with a picatinny rail.
Q: Is XTAC just laser tag?
A: Definitely not! The XTAC system is designed to simulate real gunfighting. Since you can attach it to any airsoft gun, you could be practicing with a replica of a gun you actually owned. Our system allows you to work on skills by your self to perfect your aim, stance, and weapon handling, or to play multi-player force-on-force games to put your practice to the test in real life.
Q: What is the range of the XTAC laser?
A: The laser works at distances up to 200m.
Q: Do I have to buy a headband and vest for the system to work?
A: No. The XTAC Pro has three sensors that register hits. However, the XTAC headband and vest provide 360° coverage.
Q: Do I need cell service to use XTAC?
A: Reliable cellphone service is required to play online Force-on-Force XTAC games. You can play offline, but the app cannot keep track of player statistics without reliable service.
Q: Do I need wifi to use XTAC?
A: Not always. The XTAC app requires cellphone service to track player statistics. However, there is an offline mode that will allow you to play and shoot opponents, but won't keep track of your score.
Q: How does Offline Mode work?
A: Offline mode works everywhere, even in remote locations without cell service or wifi. In this mode you can shoot opponents or be shot and the XTAC system will register the shot. In offline mode player statistics are not tracked so players can't see which player made the kill, or how many kills or deaths a player had in a game.
Q: How many players can play in a game?
