Plasma Drone Mech Arm
Plasma Drone 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 an Advanced Mech Blueprint.
This arm component can be equipped on either or both mech arm slots.
While equipped, the player can use the Plasma Drone Mech Arm while piloting their mech to deploy a drone every 10 seconds which orbits the mech, lasts for 2 minutes and has 1500 health. Only one drone can be deployed at a time - attempting to deploy a second drone will do nothing. When an enemy comes into range, the drone, after taking 0.8 seconds to detect the enemy, fires a 3-burst of bullets every 0.3 seconds in a spread pattern, producing a fire rate of ~3.33 three-bursts per second. Each bullet deals 20 damage, producing a theoretical maximum DPS of 200.
