A total-conversion mod that adds the Mass Effect era to Instant Action. You can fight as the Systems Alliance, the Heretic Geth, the Collectors, or the Evolved Geth on three new custom maps, most of the stock maps, and all maps from the Sol Map Pack.

Actually no. They're not actually lasers. Most hand-held weapons in Mass Effect use miniaturized mass effect fields to propel tiny shards of metal at high speeds. The projectiles are formed from a solid block of metal which are chipped off as needed, this only needs replacing after about a couple thousand shots. This produces heat, a lot of it, which in turn requires complex cooling systems. In the original Mass Effect, weapons had a cool-down system. In Mass Effect 2 and 3, they have replaceable thermal clips.

I much prefer the Mass Effect 1 system, but this mod uses the Mass Effect 2 and 3 system.

They're not lasers, but they appear similar to Star Wars blaster bolts in Mass Effects 2 and 3. In Mass Effect, the bolts were longer, less blaster bolty. Again I prefer this, but the mod uses the Mass Effect 2 and 3 version(s) instead.

Right. "Laser" is just what I always think of when I see the ordnance in Mass Effect and because the ODF parameters are "LaserTexture", etc. But yes, "slugs" is correct.
