The next step up from the Laser Rifle, the Heavy Laser generally fails to impress due to its weight and lack of an auto-shot feature. The aimed mode is very slow.
As with any weapon, in the hands of the right soldiers, the heavy laser can be a very effective weapon. Often used in a sniping capacity and for destroying Sectopods thanks to their vulnerability to laser. The reasonable snapshot speeds also allows it to be a fairly effective close combat weapon.
The following lists how many times a soldier can fire the gun by shot type continuously in any given round and the remaining percentage of any left over TUs that cannot be spent as a shot.
- Aimed: 1 Shot, 25% Remaining TUs
- Snap: 3 Shots, 1% Remaining TUs
