Mining Laser


Type Electric Tools
Added by Industrial Craft 2

The Mining Laser is a powerful mining tool, as well as a ranged weapon, with multiple firing modes for various purposes. To change the firing mode, hold down "M" and right click. The different modes include Mining, Low Focus, Long Range, Scatter, Explosive, Horizontal and Super Heat.

The Mining Laser stores 200,000 EU, and can only be charged from a LapPack, MFE Unit, MFS Unit, or Charging Bench (Mk II or Mk III) . As a weapon, it can be used to set mobs, players, entities, and flammable blocks on fire. In the Nether, the Mining Laser can be used to mine Nether Ores without causing Zombie Pigmen to become aggressive. It can also be used to deflect incoming Ghast fireballs. When shooting a mob that drops food, the mob drops the cooked version (for instance, raw porkchop becomes cooked porkchop and raw beef becomes steak). When using the Mining Laser, there is a 1 in 30 (3.33%) chance that the block destroyed will not drop as an entity.

The Mining Laser is the only projectile weapon (other than Archangel's Smite) that can damage Endermen without them teleporting away. The Long-Range mode will kill an enderman in 2 shots.

The speed of the laser projectile is slower than the speed of a player falling. This means that if a player were to fire the laser while falling, the laser would hit them and set them on fire.

A Mining Laser's projectile will go through anything that has a hitbox that is smaller than a block (e.g. mushrooms, vines etc.)
