Scatter Laser (EU2012)
The Scatter Laser is capable of inflicting considerable damage; however, accuracy suffers greatly as the range to target increases.

- The Scatter Laser is the laser technology version of the Shotgun. See Shotgun for more in-depth notes and tactics.
- While the listed Critical Damage (on the EW DLC) is 9-11, the actual values are either 9 (66% of the shots) or 10 (33%) due to a game bug.
- Scatter Lasers can only be used by Assaults but can be very useful against the initial aliens due to their ability to kill aliens like Floaters or even Chryssalids with a single shot.
