Singularity Infrared Sniper Rifle

The Singularity IR was designed in YE 40 and is manufactured on an order by order basis by Galactic Horizon. The simulated sniper rifle was designed to go within the laser tag game as part of the Horizon made equipment line.

It is not an exclusive item and is available for purchase by any group, its design and built in anti-tamper measures make it impossible to reverse engineer or upgrade into a lethal weapon.

About the Singularity IR

When searching for a unique event to hold for the quarterly staff social event the team at Horizon settled on Laser Tag, at the suggestions of many it was decided they would create their own equipment set and then sell it commercially making a fun social along with a new business product in one go.

The Singularity IR offers an incentive for users to go long range with this weapon, instead of being more powerful at short range it is instead weaker with the beam gaining more strength as range increases. The Singularity is for those who like to sit in a high perch and pick off their enemies with 1 shot 1 kill to the head, best suited to larger multi level playing fields.

Weapon Mechanisms

A list of the basic functions performed by the user and/or the weapon at the designated stage of equipment operation, also includes pre operation mechanisms which have an effect on the outcome.

  • Firing Mechanism: If “loaded” pulling the trigger will fire a singles shot, bolt action will reset the weapon for another shot
  • Loading: An Ammunition Core is inserted into underside at the rear end of the barrel where it connects a circuit and powers the weapon, the bolt must be used once in order to load the weapon
  • Mode Selector: a small 2 setting switch located on the left side of the weapons body, when vertical the weapon is in safety and when horizontal the safety is off
  • Firing Modes: Safety and bolt action, required to be manually readied after each shot drops fire rate with the advantage of large distance between user and target
  • Weapon Sight: Standard issue is a 4x ACOG scope
  • Attachment Hard Points: 1 rail on top of the body for sights, 1 rail on underside for grips, 1 shorter rail either side of the barrel for lights and lasers


Any non standard mechanisms or systems included within the system.

  • IR Laser: An infrared laser emitter within the gun acts as the “lethal” aspect firing a beam to simulate live munitions, in the Singularity this beam gains strength as distance travelled increases making it a lethal long range choice
