You do plus 15% damage and have plus 10% chance to critically hit with any laser weapon. With this perk and other abilities or items the maximum potential critical chances are 57% (x1.0 multiplier weapons), 76% (x1.5 multiplier weapons), 95% (AER14 prototype), 100% (Pew Pew). See Critical chance for more information.
Much like Light Touch, this perk's critical chance bonus is a flat modifier. It will not be affected by your weapon's critical chance modifier. After your normal critical hit chance is calculated, Laser Commander will add a flat 10% increase. This makes it especially useful on energy weapons with a low critical chance and high rate of fire, such as gatling lasers, laser RCW, and the MF Hyperbreeder.
