Beam Drill Mech Arm
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.
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.
