Wop-wop-wop laser sound effect?

Laser rifles in the game Helldivers have a distinctive 'wop-wop-wop-wop' sound that's very familiar, but I can't place it. I thought it might be from Dune or Terminator, but no luck. Anybody recognise it?

Sounds like the old gi joe cartoon to me.

Several of the samples on this page sound similar.

It's likely a sound heavily processed and custom to the game.

sounds a lot like the lasers from Terminator 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ih_l0vBISOE

Reminded me of a less-fuzzy version of Chopper Command laser effects.

It sounds like the heavy turrets of a capital ship from some sci-fi thing but I can't pinpoint which one. Babylon 5 maybe?
