Beam Drill Mech Arm is an arm part mech component which can be crafted using salvaged materials found in space encounters. The crafting recipe has a chance to be learned after finding a High-Tech Mech Blueprint.

This arm component can be equipped on either or both mech arm slots.

Once learned it can be assembled using a Mech Part Crafting Table and equipped using a Mech Assembly Station.

While equipped, the player can use the Beam Drill Mech Arm while piloting their mech to charge up the drill. After 0.5 seconds of charge-up time, a beam emanates from the arm which deals damage ticks to enemies and blocks 10 times a second. Enemies are dealt 16 fire damage per tick (producing a DPS of 160) while up to 2 layers of blocks at once are dealt 8 block damage per tick (producing a block DPS of 80 - for comparison, a Diamond Drill has a block DPS of 35). After the beam is turned off, 0.5 seconds of wind-down time must pass before the drill can be used again.
