XCOM-EU Laser Weapons

Beam Weapons, or Laser Weapons, are advanced weapons manufactured by human paramilitary organizations actively engaged in counter-extraterrestrial warfare. They are developed from attempts to reverse-engineer remnants of alien plasma weapons as said weapons self-destruct upon their assigned wielders' deaths.

  • The Railgun does not actually fire/use "lasers" but is equivalent Level 2 technology.

Research ProjectsEdit


  • The Laser Pistol is the only pistol with a base chance to critical hit.
  • EXALT also develops laser weapons in XCOM: Enemy Within.
    • EXALT laser weapons are functionally identical to their XCOM counterparts despite differences in their appearance.
    • EXALT laser weapons are not built from scratch. They appear to reuse the exteriors and interfaces of firearms, but mount the equipment to produce combat laser beams instead.
