Vanquish weaponmax 007

The Lock-On Laser is a unique weapon. It requires the player to aim the weapon, then press and hold the fire button. The laser will then open up into a crossbow-like appearance. The player then moves the reticule over the desired targets to lock on, then releasing the fire button. The weapon will then fire multiple lasers into the air, which will then rain down onto the selected targets. One downside to this weapon is that if the player is fighting in a tunnel, or an area with a low roof, the lasers will hit the roof and dissipate, rendering the attack ineffective. Upgrades to this weapon include ammo count, damage done and number of selectable targets. There is an achievement for this weapon which involves destroying four enemies with one volley of this weapon.

When full upgraded, its "Crossbow" gets longer, being able to fire 8 Lasers.

The individual damage of each laser is at nominal level, which can be compensated by its multiple lockon capability. Argus boss battles can be sped up with the lock on laser to weaken or destroy its arms/ legs.
