The Laser Gun is a Weapon that appears identical to a Shotgun, but fires projectiles similar to those found in an Enforcer's rifle. This Weapon is selected by pressing impulse 9.

This Weapon cannot be found in the world and instead can only be acquired by using the "give all" Weapon cheat. This is set to impulse 11.

As this Weapon can only be acquired with the impulse 11 cheat, it does not work in Multiplayer. There are no supported death messages anyway. The intent primarily was showing that new Weapons could be added without removing the old ones, making this more of a test Weapon than one intended for general use.

Strategy

Firing at a similar rate to a Shotgun, this Weapon should be relatively easy for a beginner to use. The biggest difficulty with this Weapon will be acquiring Cell Ammo, though the player can easily be given a good supply by using impulse 11, which they needed to use to get the Weapon in the first place.

Properties

Advantages

  • Fires relatively quickly in comparison to a Double-Barrelled Shotgun while causing more damage
  • Because it requires cheats, Ammo is never a problem
  • Can be aimed with ease and doesn't carry the risk of Splash Damage.

Disadvantages

  • Can't be used in Multiplayer
  • Can only be acquired with cheats
  • Due to the nature of how it must be acquired, it isn't really useful for general gameplay
