Laser tag feels cheap and undeserved. As a secondary fire mode, it feels like a wasted opportunity to have something more fun to use and maybe something more tactical.

As a suggestion, this secondary fire mode could be more fun if it would instead shoot a projectile that, on direct impact, would slow down an opponent for a super short time period. Like just 1 sec. would be enough. A slower projectile would work in contrast to the primary fire mode (beam) and if that projectile would have a little curved trajectory, it could feel great and challenging. It would be somewhere in between grenade launcher and rocket launcher.

Something similar to the Concussion Rifle in Halo 4.

    Please for the love of god, no slowing weapons, not even for a second. I think Wraith's Hack rings work perfectly in that they are already a slower, dodge-able projectile, but doesn't feel cheap to be hit by, because you know they have a good duration of cooldown to wait out before they can so it again.

    I'd be open to other effects, like perhaps a fuel sapping projectile that kills a big chunk of the target's fuel, or delays their fuel recharge a bit if they are already out of fuel when hit - similar penalty to mobility, but not as frustrating as having your whole character slowed. In my opinion, it's perfect that only 1 thing in the game does that at the moment.
