— Rhiza Kalanin in a "tiny" situation.
Of course not! That is pure scientifically inaccurate mumbo-jumbo! The computer was equipped with a "Lazy Beam"
— General Townes in response to that query.
A weapon designed and used by General Townes as a means of base and personal defence. The Lazy Beam is a miniaturisation device, able to alter a person or item's size on a variety of scales, much like the Size Changing Relic of Spamuzel. However, it can only shrink and restore objects.
Once defeated, Stylesrj began rampantly looting Townes' base and acquired several handheld Lazy Beam weapons. He issued them to his friends and family (Although the one he shipped to Stylesjl has yet to arrive)
The Lazy Beam has seen quite a bit of use with Rhiza Kalanin, despite being the first victim of such a weapon.
Behind the Scenes
When seen in comics, the Lazy Beam uses the Mesmotron/Microwave Emitter model from Fallout 3.
