I never like Laser Rifle, and it's sole purpose of being anti-Eos and maybe slasher and the fact that it acts like another fast-firing automatic weapon (let's see, we have standard rifle, SMG, HMG, Pulse and HK, all of which simply do the same thing, with different ranges/bonuses). I want it to be a more powerful weapon with unique capabilities, akin to Stinger/GrenL etc. so that it can be more useful, and can appear more often on various mission (but still rare of course) It can now be anything energy-related, Plasma Rifle, Rail-gun, Laser Rifle, Proton Cannon or wtfever you think is suitable for this role. Main idea is that it's a powerful single target dps weapon unlike Stinger, and doesn't have lolwtf range like Barret (but fires faster) and probably has unique effects that make it not just any guns. My current idea is it being a moderate speed long range rifle that deals considerable amount of damage per hit, has no armor penalty, uses small amount of marine's energy each shot and set enemies aflame, dealing additional DOT and reveals their location for 5 seconds. (akin to LD), the fire on DOT has aoe effect while the actual ddamage has no aoe.
