General Orange Patrol of Red Team announced this Friday that he plans to build laser targeting systems (L-TS) and high-powered 256 miliwatt burning lasers into his soldier’s guns. The targeting systems will be mounted pointing slightly downward on the nerf guns to accurately pinpoint the targets. These L-TSs will have a low-powered 1 miliwatt laser. General Orange Patrol says that these help his soldiers aim.
The engineers of the Red Team at the same time have been testing leading edge burning-laser technology. Using blue-energy 256 miliwatt lasers, they were able to melt plastic 12 meters away. Lead weapons scientist “Nerfinator” states, “At the right focus, our laser prototype 27.3 is hot enough to melt plastic, but will not burn human flesh. All the soldiers of the Red Team, however, must wear eye protecting goggles in case they accidentally shine it in their eyes.” Unfortunately, focusing the laser is difficult, and in a battle situation, a miscalculated adjustment could be lethal to a soldier from the White Team.
Although General Orange Patrol is enthusiastic to use this new technology for his team, he recognizes the safety risks and promises not to include the weapon into his arsenal until his scientists can develop a safer prototype. We shall have to wait and see when that will be.
