In my book, lasers and railguns are solidly, singularly, cyberpunk.
I wasn't trying to make them steampunk. I was well aware that they probably weren't. However, lasers and railguns are definitely modern, or would be if we had better power sources. Hence, as we have a legendary concept to power them with already, they're still only advanced.
A more logical chain of reasoning, I hope?
