Laser rifle beam splitter
This mod splits a laser rifle's beam into two. If both beams hit, the base damage is 30% higher. Both beams are close to one another, so this does not really give the laser much in the way of a 'shotgun' effect. While this upgrade will improve damage against most types of enemies, it will actually make a laser rifle less effective against heavily armored ones, since armor subtracts from the damage dealt by each laser beam shot. This will synergize well with a high critical chance because each beam is capable of being a critical hit.

- Prior to patch 184.108.40.2062, the beam splitter was only worth 250 caps.
- Before patch 220.127.116.115 the 30% bonus was never applied. This has since been corrected.
