    Could you replicate the effect with an env_beam with a small amount of noise in the beam?

    imo, env_laser will probably look better. Experiment and see what works.

    A env_beam or env_laser set to last 0.1 seconds, paired with a super bright light_dynamic enabled for the same amount of time. Should let players see the strike if they happen to be looking at it, or see the flash/shadows it cast on the world around it.
