Creating laser gun effect.

I have tried several different ways but I cant get a good laser gun effect like in this move:

Any recommendations on how I can get an effect like this and make it do damage?

I’m really sick of theses “how to?” questions…
Please head to the forums next time.

UA is meant to solve specific problems!

And now I’ll answer your question just because it it’s very easy to see how the effect was made.

He is using particles, that’s all.

There is a particle effect when he charges up, and the laser is another particles system that fires all particles in an almost straight line.

For how to make it and how to make it do damage, please head to forums.
