We explore the possibility of laser-based postlinac beam collimation in future linear colliders. A laser employed as a spoiler can neither be 'destroyed' by the beam impact nor generate collimator wakefields. In addition, the postlinac collimation section, presently the longest part of linearcollider beam delivery systems, can be shortened. In this paper we investigate different types of laser modes for use as spoiler. Suitable laser beam parameters and modes are discussed for collimation in
