    There are a lot of laser guns but none of them shoot continuously so i thought it would be nice to have one. I based it on the HG1, the rail gun, and the Zeus laser.

    A suggestion for the description:
    "An laser turret that will shoot a continuous beam of energy at the enemy, it has to be aimed manually but it's really going to burn when you hit them."

    Here is a rough sketch of what it might look like.

    Your best bet ATM is GeoCorp's Gimbaled Plasma Cutter.
    Firing a continuous beam but has very short range.

    I was thinking of having a long range laser since there are none yet.

    A:All lasers have "long range"(their range was the enemy aggression range once, I believe.)
    B:Hawkeye Railgun or the EXP Hunter Railgun which will definitely be moved into Hawkeye soon anyway.

    I was thinking of a laser weapon similar to the Geo Corp but just at a much longer range. (Fires continuously and at a long range.)

    Long range lasers that work like the Geo Corp ones but at a much longer range are definitely something that's been suggested and considered internally here. Personally I think it's a good idea but it'll be up to the design team to decide if it works for TerraTech and if it can be balanced properly and where we can work it into the corps.
