The solar lance beam laser deals damage constantly, striking enemies the moment you fire it.”— Daxter, The Lost Frontier
The laser, also called solar lance beam laser, is an plane weapon featured in The Lost Frontier. A forward-facing blast of high energy, the laser has both the fastest rate of fire and the fastest reload speed among all plane weapons. To add, it is also the fastest moving projectile, as the maximum range is reached nearly instantly. In turn, this high-speed, direct-fire weapon can be difficult to wield at times, as the fastest and smallest planes still need to take a second at minimum of a direct hit with this pin-point precision weapon before they go down.
Although more useful than either of the earlier available machine gun and flak cannon weapons, the laser weapon does have its shortcomings. Despite its high ammo capacity and reload speed, the rate of fire will drain through your reserves more often than not in prolonged fights. Damage-wise it is still outclassed by the later Vulcan Cannon and, although weaker, the chain lightning gun is a more favorable weapon when it comes to taking down many fast moving targets at once.
