It's the Hispanic Heritage Month at FANDOM! It's worth noting that Wasteland, 33 years ago, was one of the first games to allow players to create Hispanic characters with the nationality selection. What's more, the starting Hispanic character, Snake Vargas, eventually became one of the most important movers and shakers of the Arizona wasteland, saving the world twice over as a Desert Ranger!

Laser carbine (Wasteland 2) is a tier 1 energy weapon in Wasteland 2.


A repeating laser. Highly effective.


Energy weapons cannot jam or inflict Critical Hits, but deal bonus damage to targets with Conductive Armor.

Armor Damage Multipliers
Conductive 2.4x
Non-Conductive 0.6x

The weapon alerts enemies (generates noise) in a 20 unit radius.

Despite the description saying that this weapon is 'highly effective', it is not. Limited only to burst fire (thus eating through your Energy Cell ammo like free candy) and doing low damage even to armored targets, the Laser Carbine is a poor choice for your energy weapon specialst - consider picking the same-tier Laser Pistol instead, or switching to Pulse Rifle / Meson Cannon whenever you find one.
