Origin's Official Guide to Privateer 2: The Darkening

This is a favorite among close-up combat artists. This weapon shines at close range, so don't fire until your target is under 150 klicks away. (If you like to toast your opponents before they get this close, this is not the weapon for you.) By using Volt Lasers in close-range combat, you may get by with or without a Coolant Unit, because you will fire in shorter bursts as you bear down on target, then break off to avoid a collision. Each time you break off you give your guns time to recharge.
