BattleEdit

Laser Cannon always appears with the Warning Board. It is basically a powered-up 1st Ray and attacks with lasers. Both its Laser Attack and Paralaser have the same attack power. Its Paralaser attack has a low hit rate and when it hits a character it may inflict Paralyzed in rare occasions.

Laser Cannon (as well as Machine Gun) starts the battle as invisible, meaning it cannot be targeted, but its AI script will still run as normal. Once Warning Board has signaled its warning, it will declare WBGroup:Active = 1 (see Warning Board's AI script for more details). Whichever out of the Laser Cannon and the Machine Gun gets to their turn first, that will be the first weapon to appear out of the Warning Board. Once either weapon retreats, it is no longer determined by which weapon's turn comes first for them to appear, but rather the AI of the weapon in question; if the Laser Cannon retreated, there is a 50% chance of it reappearing on the next turn, and a 50% chance of the Machine Gun appearing on its next turn (assuming it is still alive).

StrategyEdit

It can be killed by casting Bolt, as it is weak to electricity, but with its low HP, that may not even be needed.
