Laser guns were made obsolete for combat purposes before the time of Miles Vorkosigan. They were used in Falling Free as ship-mounted weapons[1], but some time after that Beta Colony developed the Sword-swallower, a technology similar in intent to the Plasma mirror in that they reflected the attackers' lasers back upon themselves.[2]

They were used for specialized purposes such as in training war-game exercises at the Barrayaran Imperial Military Academy[3][4]; however, their primary function in modern weapons appeared to be range-finding, mapping, and similar assistive uses.


  • Leo Graf modified some laser-solderers to function as laser guns.[5]
