Dune: Technology: Lasgun

While not shown much in the Sci Fi mini-series, lasguns are worth mentioning here. Lasguns are the futuristic weapons you knew were missing from the Dune series. These weapons emit a light purple laser beam which cuts through its target like a knife through hot butter. Lasguns do Not interact well with shields/Holtzman Fields. When the two energy fields interact, the result is similar to a nuclear explosion, save the radioactive fallout afterwards.
