Heavy Laser (EU2012)
The Heavy Laser requires a supplementary power supply that makes it somewhat unwieldy in combat, but it is capable of dealing high amounts of damage.
Source: XCOM: Enemy Unknown (2012)
- Heavy Laser can only be used by Heavy soldiers.
- 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 bug.
- While their critical chance is limited when compared to Laser Sniper Rifle or Scatter Laser, the Heavy Laser can be a very useful weapon in suppressing enemy targets, if the Heavy has appropriate training. The Heavy Laser also doesn't suffer from the range restrictions of the mentioned weapons and can be used either on enclosed urban or open UFO maps.
- Suppressing a target with this weapon will consume 2/3s of its ammo (or 1/3 after Ammo Conservation project is developed). It isn't possible to use suppression if the ammo is below this level.
