The Mining Laser is an alternative mining tool available from the quest "Wire", which can be found in the Science Outpost. The Mining Laser has multiple tiered upgrades, which are available in the Nano Fabricator, increasing the Mining Laser's mining speed and area.
Unlike conventional mining tools, the Mining Laser does not mine in a selected area, but instead rapidly fires projectiles in order to damage tiles. This results in lower precision and the inability to mine background tiles. This is offset however by the increased power and the ability to dual-wield them for even greater effectiveness.
Seizure warning Edit
The Mining Laser rapidly flashes a strong light while being fired and may cause photosensitive epilepsy, especially when used in dark areas.
