This article may require cleanup to meet the quality standards of this wiki. The reason given is:
A lot of rewording in the subsections (mostly Electricity and mirrors)(see the hidden notes for details)

Reflection can be done with an angle of 45°, 90° or 135°. To reflect a single laser beam by 90° at least two dots are required and to reflect the beam by 45° or 135° at least three dots are required. It is not always obvious how the metal dots have to be placed to reflect the beam into the desired direction. For each of the reflections several different shapes of mirrors are possible. Any dot of metal can also be substituted with mercury, as it has the same affect on laser.
Electricity and mirrors
Mirrors are also affected by electricity. If the laser hits a straight line of metal head on, it will usually disappear. If electricity is in the wire, though, it will be bounced off at an angle. This is because instead of having three dots to impact at a 45° angle, one of these dots has been charged with thunder, and thus will no longer behave as a mirror. This means said laser will be reflected towards the charged dot by the non-charged dot and the center dot.
If a dot of thunder is in the metal dot above the metal dot where the laser hit, then the laser will reflect up at a 45° angle. If thunder is below the dot that the laser hit, then the laser will reflect down at a 45° angle. This is similar for the other angles of metal. If the laser hits metal that is at a 45° angle and the laser hits it straight on from an angle and the thunder is in the row above, then the laser will reflect off going straight down (or up, depending on the direction the metal is pointing), and vice versa for below the dot.
Mirrors in liquids
Even if the mirror is submerged in Soapy, the mirror will still function normally as if the mirror was above the liquid. This will only work with soapy, as the other liquids would alter the mirror (as in water) or would explode (as in Nitro).
