Weapons allow you to upgrade a drones into a warrior, enabling them to attack. Related, but slightly different, are buffs.
All weapons last until you die.
The Laser can be parried by a Queen. It can also be parried by a worker, but it is very diffcult.

We love the precious holy mace
To control the map and hold our space
Keep the berries out of their base
And smash their queen right in her face
