Metal Slug Wiki

The Laser Gun (or simply Laser) is a special weapon introduced in Metal Slug 2. It is represented by the icon L.gif.


The Laser Gun emits a thin stream of highly concentrated energy in the form of multicolored lights. These lights have so much energy concentrated into such a small area that the focal point is powerful enough to cut through tank armor and decimate enemy infantry like they weren't even there. Although the weapon itself is very powerful, the rate of energy consumption is very high, resulting in quick ammo depletion. The Big Laser Gun widens the laser for increased range and damage.

When fat, the laser's streams become unstable and produces an orb of energy at the object hit.

Starting with Metal Slug 6, the Laser Gun has gained the capability of moving like a Heavy Machine Gun in that it arcs diagonally at a 45 degree angle. It does have its drawbacks though as it loses power when it is moved in a diagonal direction.


A Laser Gun contains 200 ammo from Metal Slug 2 to Metal Slug 5.
