Static Screen - Weapons - Particle Beam Weapon (PBW)
Beam Weapon
The Particle Beam Weapon fires an intense wave of protons and neutrons that effectively vaporize anything it comes in contact with. It is the largest of the beam weapons, inflicting heavy damage on anything it hits, and even more at close range. It's power, however, comes at a very high price tag on energy.

1* The numbers in parenthesis next to the damage indicators represent the amount of damage inflicted after phase has been factored in. Due to the complexity of the damage formulae, I have opted not to include the damage inflicted through phasing.
2* Firing a weapon before it has fully rearmed will result in reduced damage. However, contrary to popular belief the damage rate will NOT be affected at constant fire.
3* Any weapon with a blast radius has the potential to do more overall damage (shield, and armor damage) if the blast radius consumes more than one part. This explains why BCs, HBCs, and sometimes EMPs do phenomenal shield damage.
