This article contains content specific to the Portal 2 Puzzle Maker. For the Authoring Tools equivalent, see Thermal Discouragement Beam and prop_laser_relay.

A laser relay is a test element in the map editor. This test element is very similar to a Laser Catcher, but instead, is not attached to a wall or ceiling. The relay is placed on the floor, and a laser can pass through it. This could be useful for using the laser to enable multiple objects at once.
