The Laser Blaster is a 3x2 Weapon room that can be built on the Medium Weapons Platform. The Laser Blaster is quite powerful, with 50% more damage compared to the Mineral Mining Laser. The tradeoff for the extra damage is higher power consumption and a slightly longer reload. It also consumes ammo that recharges over time.
The Laser Blaster is the most general use weapon out of the three Medium Weapon Rooms. It doesn't specialize in a specific type of damage nor does it have a long reload time. This gives the Laser Blaster the highest DPS (Excluding Shield damage) out of all the Medium Weapon Rooms.
When To Use
The Laser Blaster is a great addition to starships if the player wishes to add to overall damage output. The Laser Blaster offers a steady damage output and the highest hull damage out of all the Medium Weapon Rooms.
AI for rooms like the Laser Blaster is relatively straightforward. As long as the Laser Blaster's AI is targeting the same rooms in conjunction with the other weapons on a player’s ship, it should be fine.
The Laser Blaster is buffed with the Weapon stat on Crew. The reload reduction formula applied when the Laser Blaster is buffed can be found here.
