Obliteration Laser is a top-down mutant in Blaster Master Zero.
Obliteration Lasers appear as mobile turrets. They have a centered blaster, with their front being a light that flashes blue until a target is sighted, where it'll flash red instead. Their metal bodies are colored gold. In Blaster Master, their laser blasters are located on their left sides of their front, and they feature a vent on the other side.
Obliteration Lasers commonly appear in the Industrial Area, but can also be found in Area 8. They move back and forth between walls, both right and left or up and down. When the player is in its line of sight, and within a certain distance, it will fire a quick laser and flash red instead of blue. They are weak to Reflect and Striker, and can be stunned by Wave. In Destroyer Mode, they are immune to all Gun types except Blaster and Reflect.
Obliteration Lasers, a group of 20 Obliteration Lasers, appear as the first mid-boss of the Industrial Area. Defeating them normally grants the Flash Bomb Sub-weapon, which allow Jason to throw a non-damaging bomb that lights up dark rooms and temporarily stuns all on-screen enemies. When playing as Shovel Knight, defeating them grants the Ornate Plate, golden armor that lights up dark rooms when equipped.
The following list shows how many shots it takes from each Gun and Sub-weapon type to defeat Obliteration Laser. Stun means Obliteration Laser will be unable to act for a brief period of time; weapons can only stun every so often in order to prevent the enemy from being stun-locked. Weak means Obliteration Laser will take twice as much damage from the Gun than usual; in-game, they flash red, and are also stunned, when this occurs.
