I agree entirely, hence my reservations regarding it's screen
interaction. I
wanted the weapon to be better than regular beams at penetrating shields
my initial approach did seem to be too efficient at this for comfort.

I like your idea here. A bit of extra anti-screen punch, but at the same
time not enough to make the screen completely pointless. Additionally if
allows me to class/mass these weapons as per regular beams but at a cost
mass x 4, then I would be very satisfied. If they are a little over
well I can live with that.

Thanks for taking the time to go over this for me.
