Flashlights and Lasers in an Airsoft Event
Flashlights are as much for safety as they are for anything. Many people don�t want to run a night mission with a flashlight as they fear it will give away their position. The simplest solution for this is to have 2 flashlights. One has normal operation that you use to get around when you�re in garrison or when doing CQC in an extraction or building raid simulation. The second flashlight is the one that you�re going to want to have when you�re on a night operation. You need to see where you�re going but don�t want the enemy to see you before you see them. For this light, you�ll want to cover the lens with a dark purple cellophane sheet. This creates a blackout effect which will still allow you to see where you�re going, but significantly reducing how visible you are to the enemy.
Barrel-mounted lasers are great for quick target acquisition, but lasers can also be used to point out a target to your squad mates. Just put the red dot on your target and let your team fire away. If you�ve had the chance to scout the area and know which order the targets need to be taken, everything becomes much more coordinated for everyone.
