Each shot is preceded by a rising banshee wail as energy flickers about the weapon's muzzle, before it discharges with a crack like mountains splitting asunder. Where the Laser Destructor's actinic blast strikes home, armour vaporises and flesh sublimates to steam in a heartbeat.
The weapon is capable of coring a foot-wide hole through solid adamantium from a thousand metres away, and the irregular overpulses that race down its beam can blast apart even the heaviest targets with sudden and unpredictable eruptions of energy.
