Software Update August 4th: Barracks 2.09, ICE 4.1.35
Published on Jul 29, 2015

A software update is coming Tuesday, August 4th with some new features! Check out the details below.

100 Health System - The health system on ALL iCOMBAT laser tag equipment and the iCOMBAT Engine (ICE) software has been renovated with the latest software update. Some set up may be required to properly run your style of games.

All equipment now utilizes a 100 point health system. This means that the number of hits it takes to eliminate a player depends on the damage settings adjusted in the Global Settings of ICE. The irM4 for example has a default damage setting of 50, meaning it will take 2 hits to eliminate a player with 100 health.

As long as your health-to-damage ratio is properly established, you can make changes without any problems. If you set the M4 damage to 1, and have player health at 5, it will take 5 hits to eliminate them. If you have your health set at 120, with guns doing 40 damage, it will take 3 hits to knock them out, and so on.

All missions have been converted to work with 100 Health. Weapon damages have been updated to work with this respectively. More updates will be coming to further support a 100 health based system.

Challenge System - This system allows for players to choose different difficulty levels on Tactical Missions, which allows for veteran players to give themselves a new challenge with bigger rewards! 3 Different Challenge Levels have been added - Veteran, Elite and Legendary that unlock at levels 5, 10, and 20 respectively. The system must be turned on to access it under your session type.
