The laser rifle beam splitter is a weapon mod sold in Fallout: New Vegas.

EffectsEdit

This weapon mod splits a laser rifle's beam into two. If both beams hit their intended target, the base damage is 30% higher. Both beams are in close proximity to one another, so this does not really give the split laser much in the way of a 'shotgun' effect, rendering it ineffective in crowd control situations. While this upgrade will improve damage against most types of enemies, it will make a laser rifle less effective against heavily armored foes, since armor subtracts from the damage dealt by each specific laser beam. This mod synergizes well with a high critical chance, as each beam is capable of scoring a separate critical hit.

NotesEdit

  • Prior to patch 1.3.0.452, the beam splitter was only worth 250 caps.
  • Before patch 1.4.0.525, the 30% bonus was never applied. This has since been corrected.

BugsEdit
