Lets discuss lasers. We have all had trouble finding a way to introduce a good balanced and interesting way to include lasers into the game. Im not talking about Blasters, which are an entirely different thing. Blasters use ( I can only imagine) A form of controlled plasma that is emitted as a focused blast. A laser is a weapon that focuses light into such a narrow beam that it causes disruption of materials by burning through them.
Right now Blasters have the disadvantage of being large heavy weapons that do considerable damage at close range. Lasers should have the ability to travel long distances and have an increased to hit ability as you can imagine them akin to a hose where the beam can be walked into the target. But damage is the main concern here. If one focuses a magnifying glass onto a piece of paper using the light of the sun eventually the paper will burn. Does the energy of a laser work the same? Does the weapon beam have to be focused onto the target for multiple segments? How does the new staging system work with this model?
