Continuous-fire laser weapon...

— In-Game Description

Beamlaser ja02 copy

Medium beam laser, official art

Beam Lasers are high-damage thermic- damage weapons that operate solely on energy. Once fired, a laser beam exits the weapon mount and causes immediate damage to any vessel surface it collides with, especially at effective range.

Beam lasers can be fired continuously for as long as sufficient weapons energy is available.

Beam Lasers are known for their high DPS compared to other lasers, at the cost of thermal waste and distributor draw. Damage type is thermic.

SpecificationsEdit

Another variant is the Retributor Beam Laser.

It deals thermic damage at a Falloff Range of 600m and a maximum range of 3000m for every Beam Laser.

Note: Because the Beam is continuous and can therefore not have a fire rate, the Damage is measured in DPS, which means their values are the same.
