Strobe Flash lights

19 posts in this topic

Is there a proper name for the lights/mounted flashlights that have that strobe effect....for like a blinding effect on opponents?

Im unsure how to tell which lights have this feature or what name to search.

I dont think you will be able to use the auto flash ones as they could induce a epileptic shock....

someone having an epeleptic fit during an airsoft match could be really dangerous...

 

With thermobarics going off, I'm sure people with epilepsy wouldn't be playing airsoft much.

repeted flashing or a combination of colours (blue to red usually) flashing can trigger it in most cases. In some extreme cases I would assume a flash could set it off, but I have no real expertese in the field.

 

You can get torches with strobe built in, some have switches you can jab at to gain the effect, but most of the time you are close enough to blind em, you'll be close enough to just stick a few rounds into their chest and not worry about them having epilepsy

They are called crystal lights (in gun terms) they are used to blind then enemy. You can google them, but I personally would use one unless your playing in dark areas and CQB etc. It wouldnt be affective outside bit like any flash light wouldnt be:P

at night games, its whoever has the fastest finger, but if you peak round the corner blinding the shooter your gonna get the kill.

 

Thought that was common sense Zak :)
