The laser cannon is one of several ship weapons available for militarized spaceships. While it shares a similar rate of fire as the autocannon, the laser cannon separates itself with its accuracy and generous magazine capacity. Each magazine of the laser cannon holds enough energy for 800 rounds, though it will need to recharge after each increment of 200.


  • Rate of fire: Fast
  • Spread: Minimal
  • Projectile speed: Fast
  • Ammunition type: Laser. Inactive ammo requires activation from an external power source.
