—The Reckoning Manual
The Laser Guard is found in Quake II: The Reckoning.
The Laser Guard is fairly easy to kill, but he is pretty hard to dodge. His Laser is almost certain to hit you, so once he sees you, look fast for cover. He is usually found on ledges, most frequently in the Water Treatment Plant. Solid walls are the only effective cover against their laser.
- The Laser Guard is strong offensively. Although tougher than all the other guards, it is still pretty weak defensively. At close range the Super Shotgun will gib him easily. When distant, especially in packs, it might be preferable to invest some slugs and use the Railgun.
