irSMG is the Next Generation

Published on Jan 12, 2017


iCOMBAT has long been known for their incredible laser tag equipment. Since its start in 2005 iCOMBAT has set out to bring businesses and individuals the absolute best hands down. With the help of their managing company Universal Electronics Inc. (UEI), the company has found great success focusing on tactical laser tag more than anything. iCOMBAT and its talented team have invested countless hours perfecting even the most minute details when it comes to the development and manufacturing of their products. Let’s be honest, testing industry leading laser tag equipment isn’t the worst job in the world. Or is it? After 10 straight hours of trigger testing or staring into wiring diagrams to get it perfect you can imagine even the most fun things in the world can become monotonous. Yet iCOMBAT has continued to lead the industry producing the best laser tag equipment in the world.


A Look Back at 2016

New friends, international layovers, expo shows, border patrol, new products, crate shipments, tactical teams, TV shows, a makeover, killer zombies, more new products, iCE 5.0, and that’s only half of what we did in 2016! It’s been yet another amazing year at iCOMBAT Equipment. Over the past 12 months we have continued to push the bounds and limits of laser tag equipment and technology. We have busted ass this past year to take this thing to the next level, yet again.


What's Coming Up in 2017

2016 was a crazy year for iCOMBAT, with the finalization and official launch of the very first product in the GEN3 line called the irSMG. This is the first of many products to house the new improved GEN3 Core CPU. This gun offers the most realistic fun adventure available in laser tag today, with BRAND NEW recoil technology, no CO2 required! The launch was seen at IAAPA in Orlando FL, and for those who couldn’t make it down we featured a live video feed right on our Facebook page which you can see here if you missed it.
