Plasma Drone Mech Arm is a 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.

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 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.
