Mark 1 Mark 2 Mark 3

Summary

  • The Lazor Beam is a Prototype Defense that is built in the Weapon Lab.
  • Like all Prototype Defenses, it will only last 7 days after it is placed on your base.
  • The Lazor Beam fires a red laser at its target that then sweeps forward in a straight line, dealing moderate damage to all troops caught in its path.
  • The Lazor's beam will sweep through enemy troops in the direction it fires. The sweep line has a set length and can even go outside the standard firing range of the Lazor, but it will stop early at a map boundary.

Offensive Strategy

  • Due to this defense's low damage per hit, large strong troops such as Tanks can take it out easily.
  • Smaller troops are more vulnerable, but this defense only excels at taking out Zookas due to its ability to hit them even if they are behind larger troops and the fact that Zookas have very low health. One sweep will generally take out many of them.
  • This is the single best turret for defeating a Heavy-Zooka attack, so unless you can keep it permanently stunned until your Zookas can destroy it or destroy it immediately with Barrages and Artillery, do not use Heavy-Zooka against it.
  • Be careful when placing Smoke Screens while using strategies that involve Zookas. If even one steps out of the smoke while walking, the Lazor will quickly target it and fire, which will likely kill many of your Zookas.
  • As the Lazor Beam sweeps, it can hit any troops under a Smoke Screen that are in its path.
  • Using Critters near the Lazor Beam can force it to target the Critters. Place them away from your troops, preferably to the side or behind, so the Lazor Beam does not hit your troops, but close enough so the Lazor Beam attacks the Critters in the first place.

Defensive Strategy

  • This defense is best for defeating Zookas, so place it away from other defenses that are best at dealing with Zookas such as Rocket Launchers.
  • A Lazor Beam may help some in defending from a Warrior attack, but generally, a Damage Amplifier or Shock Blaster will help more.
  • If you are frequently attacked by the Smokey Heavy-Zooka attack strategy, make sure the Lazor Beam can cover all sides of the Headquarters.
    • Try to place the Lazor Beam where the Heavies will be between it and the Zookas in a Smokey Heavy-Zooka attack. This way, the attacker will have to use an extra Shock Bomb to disable the Lazor Beam because it is the only defense that Heavies cannot protect Zookas from.

Version Differences

  • At Mark I, the Lazor Beam is a circular stand with a pole on which a projection dish is present. There are 2 Power Rods propped up against it, and another one inside it. The interior power rod has 2 grey tubes connected to it, which are in turn connected to a small grey box.
  • At Mark II, the circular stand gains several structural rods and a ring. The Power Rods are replaced by a black box. The original box is now on the ground. The base gains a slight color change.
  • At Mark III, the framework gains heavy metal plating with yellow outlines. It gains a small yellow door with a ring on it. The black box propped up at the side of the Lazor Beam is removed.
