Plasma Cutter

Plasma cutters are useful cutting and excavation tools that also work as short-range weapons. They are devices that are halfway in use and power between a plasma torch and a plasma rifle and are designed to cut rock, refractory alloys, and similar substances. They have a maximum range of 15 meters and can be fired continuously to cut away large segments of even the thickest rock wall very rapidly. Plasma cutters consist of a hand-held unit the size of a small, thick rifle that is connected to a small backpack unit by a flexible cable.
