The Laser battery is the primary weapon systems found on most Terran capital ships.

When activated, it emits brief pulses of light energy producing high levels of heat and force on anything hit. Though not strong on their own, multiple bursts focused at one will eventually destroy whatever was being targeted. In most combat situations, the Laser battery is generally effective in providing air support and point defense.

There are limits to how many enemy forces can be targeted at once. In cases like the Zerg, the batteries will eventually be overwhelmed with enough flyers swarming a single vessel. To compensate, it is generally recommended that the vessel be escorted by more specialized units such as tac fighters.


  • Can target both ground and air forces
  • Highly effective against infantry


  • Decreased effectiveness against large numbers of enemy fighters
  • Decreased effectiveness against heavily armored ground forces
