When used, the Gunner fires green laser beams that only deal damage, similarly to Fox's Blaster, but rapid-fires at slightly slower rate. Although it causes neither knockback nor flinching, it does differ slightly from Fox's Blaster in that it does have a slight pushback effect. These same laser beams appear in some of Mii Gunner's throws, but they deal more damage and knockback, making them only cosmetically similar.
In Ultimate, Laser Blaze now causes opponents to flinch (much like Falco's Blaster shots), and has received buffs to both its overall speed and damage output. However, the move is far more difficult to spam, as subsequent shots after the first one come out more slowly, even more so than in the previous game.
The projectile of Laser Blaze is also used in Mii Gunner's throws. This means that if a Villager or Isabelle Pockets one, they can throw a Laser Blaze shot even if the Gunner does not have it equipped.
Special Move customization was added in Super Smash Bros. 4. These are the variations:
