The Plasma Piercing Beam Rifle is a Ground Weapon.
Piercing Beam Rifles have a primary fire that can be maintained by holding down the primary attack key. While maintaining the Incendiary Beam Barrage, there is an escalating chance of causing a plasma damage over time effect on the target.
The Piercing Beam Rifle's secondary fire blasts all targets in a cone while the attack key is held and deals damage with increasing Shield Penetration over time.
Plasma ground weapons have a chance to slow the target and apply a weak plasma damage over time effect.
This weapon uses Plasma Energy as ammunition. Attacking with this weapon's secondary attack consumes Plasma Energy. Its Plasma Energy will gradually refill over time.
