The Multi-laser is a type of laser weapon commonly mounted on Imperial Guard vehicles like the Chimera and Sentinel. Multiple reinforced barrels and enhanced phase capacitors allow for a standard laser discharge to be fired in a series of rapid bolts. While losing some of the penetrative power of a lascannon, the resulting high rate of fire improves the weapon's ability to engage a series of targets in rapid succession. Multi-lasers are highly effective against hordes of infantry or lightly-armored vehicles.
