Welcome to Covert Combat
Come and play the realistic alternative to Paintball, at our brand-new, purpose built site in Scorrier, near Redruth…
Covert Combat Outdoor Lazertag (also known as Lazer Combat or Lazer Skirmish) is an amazing new team game of simulated combat fun.
The advantages of Covert Combat Outdoor Lazertag over similar combat activities such as paintball/airsoft are:
- Save money – unlimited ammo is included in your gaming fee;
- No pain, no bruises – our guns fire harmless infrared signals, not projectiles, so you don’t get hurt when you get hit;
- Play for longer – you can take numerous “hits” before your health level reaches zero and you are “killed”, unlike other combat games where you might be sat-out watching from the sidelines after taking just one hit;
- Shoot over massive distances – no more watching your opponents waving at you, just out-of-range; our guns shoot over distances of up to 130m (426.5ft);
- No steamed-up safety goggles – because our guns fire harmless, eye-safe infrared signals, you don’t need to wear annoying eye/face protection, unlike in other outdoor combat games;
- Great for the whole family – we can accept players from age 8+ (N.B. we no longer accept ANY players aged under-8, as we were finding that in general they couldn’t manage the equipment and weren’t mature enough to fully enjoy the activity). To ensure that older players can enjoy a “mature” gaming experience, and for child protection reasons, we do not generally mix younger children and adults together, unless they specifically book in that way as a pre-formed group;
- Cheating is eliminated – once you are “killed”, the on-board software in your gun automatically disables it to prevent you from continuing to shoot;
- Realistic amplified sound effects – these come from a speaker in your gun, and accurately simulate shooting sounds, reloading sounds, etc… no feeble “phut phut” sounds like on paintball guns!
Covert Combat is not like some of the indoor lazertag games you might previously have played; it is a brand new game, using state-of-the-art digital lazer combat equipment in an exciting outdoor environment. If you imagine the adrenaline of similar combat activities such as paintball and airsoft, combined with the fun of playing PC and console games such as Call of Duty™, Full Spectrum Warrior™, or Medal of Honor™, you’ll have some idea of what to expect when you come to play with us!
Set in the beautiful grounds of Scorrier Estate near Redruth/Camborne, just one mile off the main A30 trunk road, Covert Combat Outdoor Lazertag provides players with a thrilling gaming experience that they’ll want to repeat time and time again.
At Covert Combat, players are each equipped with a high-spec “gun”, which fires harmless and invisible “lazer” signals, rather than the painful projectiles which are used in other similar activities such as paintball and airsoft. Attached to each “gun” are light-weight sensors which are worn on the player’s head, and used to register “hits”.
Once players have been kitted-up, game marshals set them exciting missions to complete, often using props to enhance the authenticity of the experience.
Missions can take place on a variety of terrain including field (for players of all ages) and woodland (generally only for players aged 12+ but sometimes, on an individual basis, also made available to sensible younger players). The outdoor setting provides the same authentic “army” experience offered by similar activities such as airsoft and paintball.
We regularly accept bookings for children’s birthday parties, adult birthday parties, stag nights, hen nights, corporate team-building and corporate entertainment, Christmas parties… and just fun days out!

(Revised for 2013)
We are generally only on-site for advance bookings, so please give us a call on mobile (07716) 556 555 before making a special journey to visit us. In general though, our opening hours are as follows:
Saturdays & Sundays (“Weekends”)
Throughout the year, we are open most weekends, from 9am onwards (10am on Sundays), for advance bookings only (but generally only for groups of 8 or more players).
Mondays to Fridays (“Mid-Week”)
During School Term-Term, we open from 10am-2pm for advance bookings only (but generally only for groups of 10 or more players).
During School Holidays, we DO NOT open mid-week, as we enjoy spending this time with our family! The only exceptions to this are:
(a) On Thursdays when we hold a two-hour “open” session from 10.30am-12.30pm. Individuals and/or groups are welcome to participate in this session (i.e. you don’t need to bring a group of 10 or more players). You must, however, phone us in advance (even if on the day) to book and pay for your place(s). The cost for this session is £20.00 per person. These sessions will not run if we have fewer than 6 people booked-in, so we’ll combine you with other players to give the best possible chance of running.
(b) For bookings with a value of £600.00 or above, we will open mid-week during school holidays at alternative days/time to the above – please phone us in advance to discuss this.
If you are looking to play on a weekend or mid-week day and you haven’t made an advance booking (i.e. at short notice), OR if you only have a small group, please give us a call on mobile (07716) 556 555 as we might still be able to fit you in.
