Laser
[ << Go Back | Description ]

Laser

The Laser is simple, reliable, and light weight. For this reason, it is commonly found on smaller, less advanced vehicles. It is effective against energy shielding, but does only moderate damage to most types of armor. A skilled pilot, however, can wield a Laser much like a surgeon wields a scalpel. Its pinpoint accuracy compensates for any lack of raw hitting power. Firing a linked set of Lasers can be devastating in the right circumstance but such a tactic must be used sparingly. As always, pilots must be constantly aware of their own energy state. Even so, the precision and modest mounting requirements of this weapon makes it an attractive option.
