Once Crogenitor army tanks, Laser Tanks are Cyber Lieutenants found primarily on Infinity, and later on Scaldron. Their orbular bodies make it impossible to detect which side is front and/or back, which makes it one of the few enemies that Skar's passive ability is rendered useless on. They are also highly resistant to all attacks that deal energy damage, as well any attack that deals damage over time. This also renders Tork completely useless against them in combat, while it also renders Viper's Passive completely useless.
It is presumed that Arcturus was the one behind their betrayal of the Crogenitors, since he was said to have made all (or most) of the Cyber enemies.
Possessing brains and nervous systems cloned from Infinity's strongest warriors, laser tanks were once beings who fought the Darkspore. Formidable foes, laser tanks are highly resistant to energy attacks, and can slice up to three enemies simultaneously with sustained energy beams at nearby foes. They create laser walls to cage in their foes at penalty of dismemberment or death.
StrategySkar is still a great choice when it comes to fighting Laser Tanks. His basic attack always deals damage twice in one combo, and his unique ability, Shadow Sting will cause greater damage, and even more damage if it is applied multiple times.
Another good hero of choice would be Magnos. Both his Unique and Squad Abillities will deal great damage to the Laser Tanks as well as interrupt their Laser-shooting attack, during which they must stay still. Most players also focus on Magnos' defenses, so a high Resist gives him a better chance of coming out of the fight with little damage.
Krel can alternate between using Tribolt and Twinblaze',' both dealing physical damage. Twinblaze will also inflict Energy Vulnerability, letting the burn inflicted by Tribolt have more of an effect.
Another great strategy would be to use Wraith Beta. Since both Phantom Charge and Supressive Blow supress enemies, Wraith can continuosly Supress them, preventing them from firing lasers. Revenant works for this strategy as well, with Psychic Storm.
- Only normal Laser Tanks in Onslaught fire up to 3 lasers at once. Captain Laser Tanks, as well as any found in Invasion and Apocalypse, can fire up to 4 at the same time. A new laser is replaced (by the first) if there are already 3-4 lasers.
