It looks as though this system is using real weapons with blank rounds and a synchronized lasertag system.  Nothing is detecting that a blank round was fired, the IR receivers on each person are detecting an IR signal from the firing gun.  The IR lasertag system and the firing of the blank rounds are independent systems, but they're synchronized so they appear to be connected.

after some searches here and there , i figured out that there is a flash sensor that detects flash from the blank round being fired

I would be very surprised if this was all that there was.  A muzzle flash from any distance (even a small one) has such a small amount of light associated with it that it would easily be confused with reflections, direct sunlight, or even bright surfaces. I wonder if the blanks have something in the gunpowder to flash a specific, and unnatural, light color frequency?

They've mention it in one of the videos, that each device has a light sensor...
