Whenever they fire their laser, a trail of red-orange smoke and orange electrical paths will appear. At the point at which the laser contacts an obstacle, a splotch of the same colour as its smoke will appear. All these visuals will fade over time.
These lasers will reach their targets the instant they were fired.
It is recomended to use various long-range weaponry like Sniper Rifles to eliminate these captains before they can move in close enough to do damage. You can also use .50 Cal turrets to take them out since these enemies only attack when they are close enough to their target; as close as the Goblock Shooter.
Vortex Guns are also useful since there is a slight chance of instantly destroying Goblocks who are caught in its blast radius. However, it is not advisable to use them as they are only available at Base Level 3. Vortex Guns are better off to be used against Giants and any other hard-to-kill Goblocks like the Elite Goblock, Goblock Tinkerer or the Goblock Medic.
- Unlike the Disintegrator, the laser does not penetrate blocks.
