Beam Weapons is a research project in XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

In-Game DescriptionEdit

ProposalEdit

Our research into alien weapon fragments led to the idea of portable laser weaponry. Our early prototypes have been encouraging, but we continue to struggle with issues related to heat dispersion.

Project ReportEdit

Codename: Sunray

By studying the methods used by the aliens to manage energy consumption and heat dissipation in their weapons, we've advanced our existing laser-based weaponry designs well beyond what we had previously envisioned. Remarkably, we now have a working prototype, a development that had at one time been considered impossible. Although we've had to reduce the size of the focusing lenses in the process, we've found very little decrease in the overall output accuracy of the weapon during initial testing.

Project RequirementsEdit

Prerequisites: Weapon Fragments (Research)
Research Point Cost: 120 Points
Project Cost: 5 Alloys, 10 Weapon Fragments

Note that research will not be available until after first UFO contact.
