The Laser Spear is a Special weapon introduced in the 11.4.0 update.
It is a spear with a large blade and a relatively short yet thick shaft. The blade is a light neon blue and the handle is grey/black. Overall, it has a futuristic or sci-fi aesthetic to it.
When "shooting", it launches a thin laser which spirals vertically.
It has decent damage, a slow fire rate, low capacity and average mobility.
- Shoot when you find multiple enemies in one row.
- Use this in close to medium range.
- Keep in mind that this weapon has a big delay when firing, so keep your attacks timed.
- This weapon can deal decent damage when you get a headshot on it, so try to keep your crosshairs at head-high.
- Using high-mobility weapons to get near enemy players and then ambushing the enemy would be better than trying to engage them in long ranges.

- Strafe and dodge the lasers. They can actually one-shot.
- Since this weapon has a very slow travel time, you could easily dodge its lasers by moving left and right.
