You think laser tag is just a game?!
No, my friend, it’s a battlefield! You’ll need to get everything ready. Your laser tag guns, your cool vests, gadgets, apparel, and – above all – your creative thinking brains!
Laser tag may be one of these fun games you can play at family or friend gatherings, but don’t take it lightly. You never know what your enemies have in store for you.
Choosing your allies carefully is an important task, but choosing your team name is also equally important. You can pick some funny or cheesy names with your teammates to have a good time and create memories.
So, how can you choose a funny or cool name for you or your team?

Funny Laser Tag Names
Funny names are always the best names! Everyone ends up having a great time at the end of the game.
A good way to pick funny names is to consider the relationship of the players with each other and choose something that can be a nice combination.
1. Father and Son
If you’re a father and you’re playing laser tag with your little boy, you can call yourselves things like “Spike” and “Tyke” or “Tom” and “Jerry”.
These cartoon characters will make your son laugh along while playing because he’ll be familiar with their funny nature.
2. Brothers and Sisters, or Friends
If your kids are playing together or with friends, then names like “Sherlock Holmes” and “Watson” might interest them. Or maybe if they’re Harry Potter fans, they can call themselves “Harry”, “Hermione”, and “Ron”.
Another cute idea for friends is the classic best friends duo “Timon” and “Pumbaa”!
3. Family: Mom, Dad, and Kids
If you’re playing as a family, you can split into 2 teams and call yourselves funny names like “Team Jelly” and “Team Belly” or any names that’d give you a good laugh every time you call each other during the game.
If 2 or more families are playing together, you can choose family names like “The Simpsons”, “The Flintstones”, or Harry Potter family names, such as the famous “Weasleys”.
Such names will be so much fun use!
Cool Laser Tag Team Names
If you’re a bit older and you’re playing laser tag with friends or co-workers on a weekend, you can choose cool names according to certain themes (common interests, things from work, etc).
The whole point of choosing names is to have fun with them. If it won’t mean anything to you and your friends it won’t be fun. So, you need to put some thought into it and come up with something interesting.
Here’s how you can do that.
1. TV Shows, Books, or Movie Characters
If you and your friends all have a common favorite TV show, book or movie, you can choose the names of characters from that particular theme.
For example, if you’re all hardcore Game of Thrones fans, you can each choose a favorite character or -even better- split into teams and call yourselves Game of Thrones’ family names, like “The Targaryens”, “The Lannisters”, “The Starks”, and so on.
2. Common Interests/ Work Themes
If you and your friends share common interests or work at the same place, you’ll probably have a lot of inside jokes that all of you would relate to.
For example, classical music lovers might choose names like “The Sharps” vs. “The Flats”, or “The Tonic Triad” (for a team of 3), or “The Diminished 7th” (for a team of 7), or “The Appoggiaturas”, and so on.
Medical students might like names such as “The Red Blood Cells” vs. “The White Blood Cells” or “The Grey Matters”, or “The Sternocleidomastoids”.
3. Cool Names in Laser Tag Arenas
There are laser tag arenas where you can choose or invent names for yourselves and when you tag someone or get tagged, it announces who tagged who on a screen on the laser tag gun itself.
This might seem like a tiny or unimportant detail but when it comes to choosing names, you can actually use this to your advantage.
If you’re wondering how’s that possible, let me introduce you to this evil trick!
They’ll ask you to choose a name for yourself or your team and then whatever name you choose will appear on someone else’s screen when you tag/ hit them.
So, here’s the trick.
Say you’re playing against a guy or a group of guys and you simply choose the name “A girl” as your name or your team’s name. You don’t have to be an actual girl or a group of girls. As a matter of fact, if the players are boys, it’ll be even more unexpected and fun.
Now every time you’ll hit them, it’ll appear “A girl hit you”. And trust me when I say that this line will just make any guy furious! No offense girls.
This is just an idea. You and your friends can play around it and make a bunch of other funny, naughty, and creative names to tease your other friends and create a memorable laser tag game no one will forget for quite a long time!
So, if you and friends are going to a laser tag arena, make sure you ask if they have this feature beforehand so you can come prepared and have your sneaky names ready to have good laughs.
Here are more names that might sound cool.
- Arthur Leonard Schawlow or Charles Townes (these are the guys who invented the LASER! Also here’s how a laser tag gun works.)
- Captain Spock (he did have a laser gun/ phaser, after all, didn’t he?)
- Charlie’s Angels (team name)
- James Bond
Best Laser Gun Names
What makes secret agents and superheroes in movies such as Star Trek and Men in Black so cool?
The answer is gadgets! The cooler your guns, vests, or whatever tools you have are, the cooler ‘you’ get.
What’s even cooler is your gadget’s name! You need to have a super cool, super big name for your laser tag gun to impress and ‘scare your enemies’, right?
So here are 4 Laser Tag gun names I think can be fun and cool to use.
This might be an obvious choice but just imagining Arnold Schwarzenegger with a gun will make your friends wonder if your laser tag gun has special powers. Plus, you can’t go wrong with Arnie!
2. The Intergalactic Zapper
Yup, you heard it right! Our battles aren’t limited to planet Earth. We’re too busy fighting other creatures in the galaxy.
3. The Mega Striker
If you have a mega-sized, mega-cool, and mega-strong laser tag gun and you’re not afraid to show it to the world, you might as well call it a mega name!
4. Laser X 1000
Any alphabet or numbers combination will sound cool as a toy gun name because it suggests that it’s an advanced model of some important brand of gadgets.
No matter how old you are, once you get a laser tag gun in your hand, you’ll feel like a kid who just got a new toy, excited and happy!
This is a great game for any event; Christmas gathering, birthday party… you name it. And everyone from the oldest to the youngest will be playing his heart out for hours and hours.
All you need for a great laser tag game is a cool gun, an even cooler name (for you or your team), and a bunch of loyal -but crazy- friends. And you’re good to go!
