* ''Film/{{Cobra}}''. The cop played by SylvesterStallone uses a [[RareGuns Jati submachine gun]] with laser sight. While in a factory he uses the sight to distract some mooks by detaching it and leaving it switched on in a dark room. While the mooks are sneaking up on where they think Stallone is, he jumps them from behind.

* In the [[XWingSeries Wraith Squadron]] novels, Myn Donos - a professional sniper, no less - is accused of not being in position to cover the accuser. The laser sight is never mentioned again, not even on a later mission where the viewpoint character is right next to two people who are subsequently sniped, so it's quite possible that he normally doesn't use it. [[note]]And it's actually a ''laser'' rifle, and therefore a nearly-unique example of this trope in which a laser spot-projector on a sniper rifle would actually be any use for aiming.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:
* Being [[FollowTheLeader quite inspired]] by ''[=RE4=]'', ''VideoGame/ColdFear'' has these, though only for the longer-ranged weapons.

* In ''Comicbook/MarvelComicsPresents'' #39-41, a sniper aims main character [[TheIncredibleHercules Hercules]] as a cliffhanger in one issue. In the following one, Hercules notices the laser sight in his chest, and dodges it easily. The story takes place circa 2385 AD, and still they make the same mistake. * This Trope was used, in part, to kill CaptainAmerica.

*** Though this is probably quite intentional. The predators are all about gaining honour and stuff. Giving their opponents a fighting chance is quite reasonable in context. In the briefing for one of the boss fights in [=AvP=] it even says "to retain honour amongst your clan, all your electronic weapons have been disabled".

*** Note that the predator's laser sight at one point is used to heat his metallic wrist claws until they glow red-hot.

** Justified in this case, as the snipers were part of a trap. The killer ''wanted'' the man to know where the shots were coming from. *** "I've been killing people for a living my whole life. I eat sleep and breath war. AND I JUST GOT THE BIGGEST BREAK IN THE HISTORY OF WARFARE! WHAT KIND OF IDIOT SNIPER USES A LAZER SIGHT HAHAHAHAHHA." *boom headshot*

* One of the sequels to ''TheSubstitute'' invokes this trope to intimidate a group of gang-members by making them believe they are being covered by a like-number of hidden snipers, they are actually being covered by a single man with a gimbal-rig holding several laser-pointers.

* In ''LethalWeapon4'', Riggs adds a laser sight to his gun despite his already ImprobableAimingSkills. Early in the film he uses it to accurately plot a ricochet --off a [[RuleOfCool rusted pipe]]!-- and take out a mook who's taken cover. Later he uses it to intimidate Jet Li and force his gang to stand down. * ''{{Transporter 2}}''. RuleOfCool when attached to TheDragon's GunsAkimbo machine-pistols, but justified in two scenes where it's used to force the protagonist into doing what they want (the first time a laser dot is on the head of the kid he's protecting, the second it's on Frank's chest to make him get into a car he knows is rigged with a bomb).

* ''PlanetSide 2'' has lasersights as an [[GunAccessories optional attachment]] on handheld guns. Using a laser sight makes the gun more accurate when hip-firing, but the laser can give away your position, though a design oversight allows users to retain the accuracy bonus even with the laser turned off.
