Summary

The Laser Blaster is a 3x2 weapon room that can be built on the Medium Weapons Platform. The Laser Blaster does 1.5 points of damage to crew and systems and 0.75 points of damage to shields. It's basically a Mineral Mining Laser that does more damage.

Usage

In Combat

The Laser Blaster is the most general use weapon out of the three Medium Weapons. It doesn't specialize in a specific type of damage nor does it have a large reload time. Thus, starship captains mostly choose this weapon for the gunship style focus firing of rooms. This weapon also has the highest hull/system/crew DPS out of all the medium weapons, surpassing even the Railgun.

When To Use

The Laser Blaster is basically a third Mineral Mining Laser. It's great for gunships and for high DPS focus fire. So, unless you have a hard time against Shield Generators, the Laser Blaster will be your best choice for Medium Weapons Platform.

AI

There really isn't any magic AI for the Laser Blaster, just make sure it targets the same room all your other weapon rooms target. Also, the Laser Blaster is categorized as a "Laser Room" in AI coding.
