Megapol Laser Sniper Gun

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Megapol's Laser Sniper Gun is a development of (or, as some commanders would be tempted to say, a regression from) the laser technology from the First Alien War. The optical sight can distinguish an ultraviolet laser designator out to seventy-five meters, but it lacks any telescopic capability. Rather than allow Energen to participate in the weapon market, Megapol decided to provide energy pods to power the gun. Although the mass-produced pods are cheap, they are far less efficient – thirty discharges of power comparable to a Lawpistol's – than a high-quality pre-charged system such as was used in X-COM's first laser weapons.

The Laser Sniper Gun is very, very accurate and a very common weapon within Mega-Primus; however, it is disappointingly weak and slow. Despite being the most accurate and longest range (non-missile) gun in the game, the Laser Sniper joins the Marsec M4000 Machine Gun collecting dust on a back shelf once Disruptors appear.
