The Pick-up Pad is an illuminated power pick-up platform with a beacon light from above. The Pick-up Path activates when a player steps onto the device. That player then gets to choose or purchase (using in-game currency) from a list of special powers and gear, such as:
|Rapid Fire||Relay Bouncer||Retaliation|
|Medic Packs||Power Packs||Health Packs|
Those powers are added to a “backpack” which the player can access and use throughout the game. The Pick-up Pads are completely customisable and can be always active, set to randomly turn on throughout the game or cycle from one Path to another Pick-up. They can also be set to Solo or only allow specific team colours.

Pickup Pad Gameplay
Hot Potato is a hilarious game in which players access the Pickup Pad to grab the “Hot Potato”. The Hot Potato is going to explode, so you need to get rid of it by tagging another player. As long as player holds the hot potato, they will lose points. When it explodes, the player who is holding it will lose points and the person who first acquired the potato will gain them.
Power up Casual Games
In casual games, the Pickup Pad immediately becomes a central feature, as players vie for access to gain super powers. It’s bright, brilliant and intuitive for players—they just get it. and kids will be talking about the powers-ups they scored at the Pickup Pad the entire ride home.
Survivor is an intense team or solo elimination style game. Players tag as normal but must “lock-on” using Helios Pro’s half-trigger pull and targeting their opponent in order to eliminate opponents. The Pickup Pads are used to collect powers unique to the Survivor game format, such as “instant Lock” or “Countermeasure”.
