Ive been to a couple scenario games and my only problem ive been having comes up at night. My mask keeps fogging up and the glare from lights make it immposoble to look toward light. Im planing on buying a new mask soon so i need to know what masks work well during the night. I need it to not glare or fog up easily.

What mask do you use currently, and what mask(s) were you looking at?

A mask that doesn't fog is all you need, otherwise there is really no specialized equipment needed. If you do have a spotlight however, those can be DEADLY. While walking around with your team mates, you hear something in the brush, turn it on for just a second and turn it off.

^^YES YES YES!!! i carry a 15,000,000 candlepower ( yes, i said 15 million) spotlight for night games. its like the finger of god. you are 100% blinded by the beam, and it takes 20-30 minutes for the opfor to get their nightvision back, plus the time it takes them to un-sear their retinas. lol.

i had problems with my mask too at first, and brought flashlights on to help. then i got a thermal lense, anti fog spray and a fan, and i was fog free. but i started realising how hard it is for enemies to cheat and not call hits in the dark, so i decided to bring my own sun. it works. and yes, it makes you feel like god. it is that bright. buy one, it should run you 40 bucks. screw nightvision, spotlight vision.

I speak from experience, I've been on the receiving end of a spotlight :facepalm: . You see the source of the light but not the people shooting at you, and the only hope of escape is to hit the ground and shoot at the light.

About all you really need is a good mask with a clear lens. Currently I use a JT Flex 7 for night play. Anything in the JT Flex or Spectra series works great and won't fog up because they are dual paned thermal lenses. The only issue I have is my glasses sometimes fog up, but a Vortex II fan and anti fog treatment takes care of that issue. The only true downside to the JT line is if you use a colored lens for general daytime play it would be best to have a second set of goggles with a clear lens for night play. Reason why is because JT lenses are not the easiest to change out when you have time constraints.

Other suggestions would be as follows:

V-Force line
  • Pro Vantage
  • Profilers
  • Grillz


Other lines
  • Proto Switch
  • Proto Axis
  • Dye I series (I3 and I4)
  • Empire E-Vent
  • Vents
  • Invert Avatar
  • Invert Helix


I can testify that the V-Force Pro Vantage is a great goggle for the money. While it might be a bit newbish it is an overall great goggle. My wife uses it and she had no problems fogging up at a 26 hour scenario we went to last year in October. The Pro Vantage uses the same lens as the Armor Rental which means replacement lenses are pretty cheap.

Very Simple, buy an antifog mask. Also, wear dark clothes during night scenario games. It helps you camoflauge. Also get antiglare on your mask
