Gameplay and Balance Indicator


This takes all the skill out of laser combat. It is notable that both Telescope and SniperLock were modified by their authors to not lock permanently on the target in the way that this one does, to maintain an element of skill.

But, would the technology for this really not exist so far in the future? And is the extremely high price realistic?
