It is mentioned multiple times in the story and Codex that all weapons are mass drivers; lasers are only used as starship point defense, since their range is abysmal (and even worse in an atmosphere). Cutscenes, however, show Sovereign as using a giant, completely unrealistic laser as his main weapon. This was due to a lack of communications between the story and cinematics teams. However, the laser looked and sounded so awesome that no one could bear to get rid of it. Instead, it was retconned into molten ferrofluids fired at relativistic speeds.
