It seems like its only real niche is killing vehicles from a vantage point. If you're actually sniping, the DMR's roughly as effective and far easier to use, if you're anywhere near a vehicle you're better off with... well any other explosive, really.

Perhaps more to the point, what motivates someone to pick the SL from an ordinance drop?
...and that's how I came to be known as the Flourescent Haberdasher.

The only time I call in a sl is if there's a bunch of vehicles around. The only time I think it would be effective for killing Spartans is when they arefar away and you know they will just hide after shooting them with a dmr. This way if you keep the laser off them when charging you can kill them before they hide

Well, for starters, I use it because it's my favorite weapon in HALO by far.

Second, I use it on infantry if there are no enemy vehicles out.

Third, I use it if I'm not going for any particular weapon Commendation or I didn't get the choice for a weapon I still need the Commendation for(which at this point is only Needler, Fuel Rod, Concussion Rifle, & Beam Rifle).

I barely use them because I know I'll never get a kill with it. I'll either be killed trying to use it or I'll run out of ammo and have to ditch it without making a dent on anyone due to its slow charge and people moving slightly to the left or right just as I fire it.

I've actually killed more infantry with it than people in vehicles. It's great for Banshee control or taking out a hog, but nothing is as satisfying as frying someone across the map with it while they jump dodge and try to strafe away from the laser.

BTB Exile is the easiest map to pick up almost every single weapon commendation there is. Being populated 90% by idiots and people that don't know how to FPS certainly helps that.

Not much as Reach for Halo 4. It's really hard to take out non-vehicular players with it.
