Split Shot 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 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. This shell, upon hitting an enemy, deals 60 damage and explodes into 10 shards dealing 15 damage each, producing a theoretical max burst damage of 210. When only shell damage is considered, the mech arm has a DPS of ~171; each shard that hits an enemy adds ~42.9 DPS, producing a theoretical maximum multi-target DPS of 600 (in practice, it is rare for all ten shards to hit enemies, so actually attaining this DPS is nearly impossible).
