Archery Tag: Like Paintball But With Foam-Tipped Arrows

August 11, 2015


Archery Tag is a new sport sweeping the nation (no clue if this is accurate) that combines the mechanics of archery and paintball. There isn't any paint though (although there should be), instead, opposing teams shoot foam-tipped arrows at each other and you are eliminated by being hit. You can also eliminate players by catching their arrows. If you really want to win though replace your foam-tipped arrows with metal-tipped ones and Legolas the shit out of everyone.

Keep going for a video of the latest development in elf-centric LARPing.

Thanks to Landony, who offered to shoot an apple off my head but I politely declined. I say a cherry or nothing.

    This is insanely cool! This would be so much fun! :-D

  • Being an actual archery sportsman, everyone held and shot the bow wrong except for like 1 guy I noticed. But at least they had fun. It reminded me of Hunger Games where everyone has to start out and grab weapons/food/gear.

    There is no one right. Target archery and bow hunting are very different from what they are doing. With all the speed and mobility they need, they might not be doing it wrong.

    what disney movie did they play this in by hunting the servants for sport?

  • The Little Mermaid

  • Phil Speiser

    Actually the movie was "The Swan Princess". It was directed by a former Disney Artist but produced by Rich Animation Stuido.

  • Nope. Pretty sure it was The Little Mermaid. You don't remember in the movie when they hunted the servants in the sea for sport?? You should rewatch it!

    Check out the link to this video. The Swan Princess, the prince is hunting his servants with arrows tipped bags of colored powder.

  • Ollie Williams

    I'd play that.
