The Galaxy Awaits uses the ‘light touch’ combat method to simulate battles between characters in a realistic, yet safe manner. Using foam swords designed for LARP and unmodified Nerf blasters, you can expect to be touched by these items with little more pressure than a tap. While we want combat between our players to be as realistic as possible, we don’t want people walking away with bruises or getting hurt.
The weapons allowed in Galaxy Awaits must follow strict safety guidelines detailed on the last page. All weapons are checked by Staff each event to ensure they are safe to use.
