Description
Small pew pew pew laser guns. You'll need a few of them to make an impact.

Professor Yum of the Personal Technology Institute (P-Tech, i-USA), happened upon the Narrow Gauge COIL Laser technology whilst attempting to pioneer a range of ion laser cookery ovens. The idea was to develop a faster method of cooking than conventional microwave ovens. Early tests were plagued with mishaps as the food being heated had a habit of charging with unstable kinetic energy. In one case Yum reportedly threw a piece of bacon at a target after exposure, the bacon turned red in the air and summarily exploded upon impact. The technology has since been repurposed for the defence industry, after a significant reduction in power.


The GSO Narrow Gauge COIL Laser is a laser weapon block, useful for fighting enemy techs.

It has 1 Attachment Point.

This block has about 165 HP and is mildly explosive when destroyed.

The GSO Narrow Gauge COIL Laser has average tracking speed (but limited elevation and azimuth), good projectile velocity, poor projectile damage, excellent projectile range, good fire rate and no splash damage.

It, like all GSO blocks, can be crafted with a GSO Fabricator.

Trivia[]

  • According to the Lore relevant to trees and Fiberwood, Dr. Tony Penev was a known victim of this weapon. He was blinded after looking directly into the beam of the COIL Laser that he was using to collect samples with.
    • Ironically, despite the weapon's effects, Penev is still capable of reading and playing computer games.
    • This also implied that it was also used for resource harvesting.
