The laser rifle beam splitter is a weapon mod sold in Fallout: New Vegas.


This weapon mod splits a laser rifle's beam in two. If both beams hit their intended target, the base damage is 30% higher. Both beams are in close proximity to one another, so this does not really give the split laser much in the way of a "shotgun" effect, rendering it ineffective in crowd control situations. While this upgrade will improve damage against most types of enemies, it will make a laser rifle less effective against heavily armored foes, since armor subtracts from the damage dealt by each specific laser beam. This mod synergizes well with a high critical chance, as each beam is capable of scoring a separate critical hit.
