The Mining Laser is an alternative mining tool available to be crafted in the Tinkering Table. The Mining Laser has multiple tiered upgrades, which are also available in the Tinkering Table or its upgrades, 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.
The different mining lasers can be upgraded with upgrade modules at the Mining Bench, and each upgrade adds a small boost to mining speed, area, and length of beam. Each laser can be upgraded a total of 14 times.
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.
Unlocked by: Tinkering Table.
