Its firing pattern was typically a constant stream, but the nozzle could sometimes be adjusted to alter the width and spread of the beam. Its power source was a cell cartidge that could be replaced when depleted.

During the days of the [[Old Imperium]], lasguns were often ornate in their design, with detailed scrollwork embedded into the handles. However, by the time of the [[Honored Matres]], the designs had become less intricate and more functional.
   
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.

Lasguns were the preferred weapon for armies. However, when [[shield]]s were being employed, lasguns were generally not used because contact of a lasgun beam with a sheild generally caused massive explosions that often killed everyone within a large radius. As a result, many soldiers preferred knives and swords in battle.
   
Size and form could vary from small, handheld lasguns to long field-models and large and armored heavy duty models.The [[Cutteray]] was essentially a Short-range version of a lasgun used mostly as a cutting tool and surgeon's scalpel.

A larger version of the lasgun was a cannon, which had the same effects of a lasgun but on a larger scale. When the [[Baron Vladimir Harkonnen]] returned to [[Arrakis]], he used these cannons to seal [[Atreides]] troops in caves.

Lasguns were the preferred weapon for armies. However, when [[shield]]s were being employed, lasguns were generally not used because contact reaction between a lasgun beam and a shield created a nuclear explosion that often killed everyone within a large radius.
