First Appearance

The Next Wave

Laser Cannon is one of the oldest weapons in the Chicken Invaders series, appearing in every game since The Next Wave. It made its first appearance in The Next Wave and got a visual update starting from Revenge of the Yolk and beyond. This page describes the version seen in Revenge of the Yolk onwards.

Strategy

It fires lightning-fast bolts of focused energy, which will kill anything in their path. Range is sufficiently long, but not unlimited. Its main disadvantages are its minimal spread and quick overheating. To minimize this, fire it manually.

It's always available from the first chapter.

Pros

  • Instantly hits enemies.
  • Strong and focused damage.

Cons

  • The range becomes limited when zooming out.
  • Not recommended for asteroid waves and those with lots of enemies.
  • Overheats quickly.
