A duel is a one on one battle at close range between two
players. It is a direct test of the two players blocking, aiming, shooting
and dodging. Duelers often get stuck chasing a single certain player
around in Tournament play. This turns a large battle into somewhat of a
smaller one. This allows captains to "decide" who covered at all
times. And keep dangerous players busy.
Duelers have to make sure as few of there sensors are showing. They must keep their shots up and accurate. Their man down and their shoulders up. Duelers in many ways make up the front line of a Laser Tag team.
