—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Laser Assistant is a Primary weapon introduced in the 13.1.0 update. It is part of the Cyber Santa Event Set that includes: Cyber Santa Avatar, Laser Assistant, Dual Cryo Pistols, and Christmas Ultimatum. After obtaining all of the weapons you get a full set effect: Resistance to poison, bleeding, and burning effects.


It is a Christmas-themed machine gun that shoots burning lasers. It also has a scope for long range. It deals medium - high damage, has a high capacity, a decent fire rate, and has decent mobility.


It has a small box with an electric sign on it as the ammo case and it is attached to the handle. It has a candy-cane foregrip and has what appear to be copper wires making a square attached to the middle of the gun, resembling an electromagnetic coil. It is mostly dark green. In the latest updates, it features an 8x scope. The scope that is on the weapon appears to be made out of candy cane.


The player, holding it with both of their hands, would shoot hitscan red laser bullets with a burning effect. The place where the bullets exit the gun would shine the same color as the bullets. The burning effect inflicts temporary damage to targets after getting shot by it. It possesses a 2x scope (the Armory falsely claims it's 8x), allowing it to perform well at long-range.

When reloading, the ammo case is taken out and is replaced by another one. This weapon currently does not have any delay mechanics.



  • Due to the high capacity and damage, you can kill many enemies before reloading. You can stay in combat longer before backing off to reload.
  • Aim at an enemy's head for maximum Efficiency per shot.
  • With extremely good accuracy, it can be used at all ranges especially now having 8x zoom. However, using it at melee ranges can be a little difficult.
  • The Burning attribute of this weapon clogs up people's screens and they may tend to panic and lose their control, and their aim will be messed up. Take this to your advantage.
  • This weapon will quickly mow down unarmored opponents in direct combat. If possible, pack a secondary weapon to take out such users and save ammunition for tougher opponents.
  • This weapon is general-purpose. So you can use it in any situation, it has decent capabilities at medium-long ranges too. As well as using it as a makeshift automatic sniper rifle.
  • This gun, when used in Team Fight (PG3D) is excellent at pinning players down due to the sheer size of its magazine.
  • Covering teammates with the flag in Flag Capture is one of the best ways to use this weapon.
  • With sufficient training one can estimate where a sprayed bullet might go and direct the weapon as to it, this greatly minimizes the chances of wasted ammo and increases viability in long-range matches.
  • When cornered this weapon is excellent at killing a few players before being killed yourself.
  • This goes extremely well with backup weapons with a scope and high damage to create a combo kill shot. Shred enemy armor with a high fire rate and then finish them off with a headshot.
  • This weapon is an excellent choice for fighting very mobile players.
  • Equip this with Cowboy Hat and max Storm Trooper Cape to benefit its reload speed the most.
  • Take out enemies to long range, as its 8x zoom makes it effective at medium-long range.
  • This weapon is excellent for finishing off players that have been weakened.


  • Any well-placed hits from one-shot weapons will do the trick.
  • If this is really giving you trouble, avoid the line of sight and try to flank them, as it buys you time to kill them.
  • Not many automatic weapons stand a chance at winning a direct firefight with this, especially since critical damage and burning skyrockets its time to kill, range and mobility will take care of most players.
    • The only weapon can that beat the Laser Assistant in a direct dogfight is the Excalibur. In an indirect situation, however, Black Mamba can slow down the user and may have a chance to make them miss their aim while you strafe around in a zigzag manner around them.
      • With competent experience, superior fire rate weapons such as the Champion Peacemaker can take these users out easily.
  • Using Laser Assistant yourself can be effective when fighting against its user(s).
  • Use a healing weapon to cancel out this weapon’s burning effect.

Equipment Setups

  • A weapon to cover long ranges, melee range isn't too big of a problem with how easy it is to create distance.



  • Initial release.


  • Its fire rate was nerfed from 98 to 97 and its ammo from 80 to 70. However, its Efficiency was buffed to 37. This never actually changed the gun's statistics, just for an accuracy tweak.


  • Its damage was buffed, making it a 3 headshots kill instead of 4 to max-armored players.


  • It was nerfed once again to 9 headshots kill (1.6 seconds of continuous fire) for balancing reasons. Its capacity was reverted to 80.


  • It is part of the Cyber Santa Event Set that includes: Cyber Santa Avatar, Laser Assistant, Dual Cryo Pistols, and Christmas Ultimatum

  • It is the only Primary weapon to feature an 8X scope.
  • Nowadays, this weapon has a fire rate of approximately 300 shots per minute.
  • It greatly resembles the Laser RCW from Fallout: New Vegas. Both are laser sub-machine guns based on the Thompson that have large magazine capacities but middling accuracy.

    • When it was released, it was a solid 4 headshots kill.
