Split Shot 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 Simple 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 Split Shot Mech Arm, while piloting their mech, to shoot a shell every 0.35 seconds, producing a fire rate of ~2.86 shells per second. Each shell, upon hitting an enemy, deals 60 damage and explodes into 10 shards dealing 15 damage each, resulting in 210 damage if all shards hit targets. When only shell damage is considered, the mech arm deals approximately ~171 DPS. Each shard that hits an enemy adds ~42.9 DPS, theoretically resulting in 600 DPS in a perfect scenario. In practice, it is rare for all, or even most, shards to hit enemies, so actually attaining this DPS is virtually impossible.
