Laser Backs were hovering beetle-like machines that attacked with twin machine guns that were connected to their claws. Their machine guns were hard to avoid so that it was a good idea to kill them before they had a chance to shoot. They attacked by shooting both their machine guns at you. The best way to kill them was after they stopped shooting to reload, and then used a long range gun, like the Dual Vipers.
