A '''lasgun''' was a continuous-wave laser projector weapon that was perhaps the most widely used hand weapon in the [[Imperium]]. It commonly took the form of a pistol or rifle. Its firing pattern was typically a constant, narrow beam, but the nozzle could sometimes be adjusted to alter the width and spread of the beam. Its power source was a cell cartridge that could be replaced when depleted.
