Oops, you're right.  It was changed in the DC rules in MT.  FB doesn't
specify any changes to it.
I was reading the Needle beam rules from FT, which specifies it as only
failing a threshold check.

iirc, needle beam damage cannot be repaired (by DCPs, at any rate). only
threshold-check damage can be.
