As far as I understand, the Macer missiles are based on the real-life AGM-65 Maverick missiles, which are usually not laser guided (There are laser guided versions I think, but most Maverick missiles are video/camera-guided)

This issue is MP specific because the Macers can lock onto laser targets in SP, so I doubt it's intended.
