Beam is the title of a group of common lasers in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are manufactured by Dahl, Maliwan, Hyperion and Tediore, and features the Maliwan barrel "Beam".

Usage & Description

Beam lasers fire a sustained arc of energy that persists as long as the trigger is held down. Despite its looks, the arc has limited range, and holding down the trigger causes the weapon to sway wildly with recoil, making it hard to control. The only exception is if the laser is produced by Hyperion, in which the arc becomes very accurate with extended use.
