The Industrial laser is a weapon in Space Rangers.
Heavy and pricey for a starting piece of equipment with low to average range this weapon does not look like much. However, for those Rangers who like hard work this laser is for you. Firing an industrial laser at an asteroid will result in the highest amount of minerals to harvest. If it turns out that a chunk of minerals are too much for your cargo hook, fire up the industrial laser and break it into smaller chunks that your cargo hook can handle.
Arcade Mode Effects in Space Rangers 1: Industrial lasers in arcade mode leave blue globes that last a few seconds. Any ship running into this globe of charged energy will take damage.
