Beam Spammer

This weapon is a modified Laser Rifle, firing in fully-automatic mode with a recharging power source. It also deals more damage the longer the trigger is held, but sustained fire increases the risk of the weapon overheating.

Parts Used

I started with the base game Laser Rifle mesh and adjusted the grip angle to fit with the TwoHandAutomatic animation set. I then adjusted the stock to mate properly with the newly-angled grip and replaced the Microfusion Cell will the Tesla coil from the Tesla Cannon, and added the plate from the Laser RCW Recycler.

Perks and Challenges

The following properties, perks and challenges apply to this weapon:

Usage Notes

This weapon deals additional damage the longer the trigger is held down. \[ BonusDamage = \frac{EnergyWeapons} {WeaponHealthPercentage}\] This means that with a maxed-out Energy Weapons skill of 100, and the weapon at 100% condition, it will only deal 1 extra point of damage. However, with the weapon at 1% condition, it will deal an additional 100 points of damage.

Each time the weapon fires, its condition degrades by 7.5% to simulate heat buildup. However, its condition is restored by 0.5% every 1/60th of a second when not firing, to simulate cooling down. If the weapon's condition drops below 1%, it will overheat, causing the player to drop it and damaging their health (simulating a minor burn).

The optimal strategy for using the weapon is to fire in controlled bursts, skating the line between bonus damage, ammo regeneration, and overheating.

Procurement

This weapon must be purchased from Dr. Quarton, and cannot otherwise be obtained without console commands.
