XEU Precision Lasers

Precision Lasers is a research project in XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

In-Game DescriptionEdit

ProposalEdit

The alien weaponry appears to use a series crystalline lenses to increase the power output of their weapons. While we can't recreate their materials, we can adapt their techniques to increase the range and power of our own laser weapons.

Project ReportEdit

Codename: Lightwire

After a number of failed experiments, we've finally succeeded in focusing an accelerated energy pulse through a narrow-field lens while still maintaining adequate energy efficiency. The result is an extremely capable weapon akin to a traditional sniper rifle, but with a much greater chance of inflicting critical damage on enemy targets. We believe this weapon is now ready for deployment in the field, once Dr. Shen and his team complete the fabrication process.

During our testing we've also deployed another prototype operating under the same principle, but relying on a modified prism to scatter the beam rather than focus it. We envision this weapon filling the same tactical role as a traditional shotgun, but without the ammunition constraints... and with a greater damage output. However, as with our other laser-based weaponry, heat dissipation issues continue to plague these designs.

Project RequirementsEdit

Prerequisites: Beam Weapons
Research Point Cost: 160 Points
Project Cost: 5 Alloys, 5 Weapon Fragments

Items UnlockedEdit

TriviaEdit

The image associated with this research project shows the blueprint outlines of the Laser Sniper Rifle and the Laser Cannon which is misleading as the Laser Cannon is actually unlocked via the Heavy Lasers research project.
