An energy weapon that fires a lot of fast, yet weak projectiles, unlike the Plasma Rifle which fires slow yet powerful blast of energy. They operate by emitting a concentrated beam of light and use microfusion cells as ammunition. They, as with most energy weapons, are harder to come by than your standard gun however their lack of moving parts means they are resilient against extended use. This does not mean they're indestructable. As with all energy weapons, laser rifles can suffer from poor performance if not properly maintained. The crystal arrays and non-mechanical components are delicate and if not properly serviced can lead to a loss of beam intensity, overheating, and energy regulation failure. If you cannot afford a Plasma Rifle this is often a good option as it has a longer range.
