Laserbeam is an attack style characterized by creating a hitscan area of damage to pop bloons. It is part of the damage types family. All attacks with the Laserbeam property normally have the Plasma Plasma Type (pops Black, White, Lead, Frozen) type.

Laserbeam is represented on the Bloons Wiki as Laserbeam, the upgrade artwork for Plasma Accelerator in Bloons TD 6, which depicts a plasma cannon. Laserbeams are typically rectangular, unlike Area of Effect Area of Effect, which is typically radial. Laserbeam often comes with Contact Damage Contact Damage (unspecified contact damage rate) because of how laserbeams tend to work. Laserbeam works differently to a standard projectile because attacks with the Laserbeam property will immediately damage all bloons in its area (provided it is not pierce capped), and lacks a physical projectile.

Typical examples of Laserbeam are Plasma Accelerator, BTD6 Ray of Doom and Master Builder's Green Sentry Paragon, and BTD5 Ray of Doom. Adora's Ball of Light has two interdependent attacks: a laserbeam attack with Laserbeam Laserbeam, and a pointer with Area of Effect Area of Effect. Same applies for Plasma Accelerator. The Energy Arms from Bloons Super Monkey 2, starting with Pulse Whip, have laserbeam properties as well, although they are not rectangular.

Because Laserbeams lack a physical projectile, similar to Snipe Snipe attacks, they can ignore Vortex's wind shield that triggers upon reaching a skull. Thus, they can still damage Vortex, regardless of whether the wind shield is active or not.
