The Mineral Mining Laser(MLZ) is a 3x2 weapon room unlocked at level one, being the first one the player unlocks. It's one of the most power efficient weapon rooms in the game, despite how early the player unlocks it. The Mineral Mining Laser can also generate Minerals Mineral.png when it's not in combat.


In Combat

The Mineral Mining Laser's high DPS, when compared to its power consumption, makes it great stand-alone. However, many agree the Mineral Mining Laser truly shines when paired with other weaponry. Make sure to Armor the Mineral Mining Laser as the two maximum power can make the room an easy way for the enemy to deal hull damage.

When To Use

The Mineral Mining Laser works well in almost every starship loadout due to its low power consumption and decent damage output. The Mineral Mining Laser is especially important in gunship hulls, as the damage output offered from it is needed for steady damage.


AI for rooms like the Mineral Mining Laser is relatively straightforward. As long as the Mineral Mining Laser’s AI is targeting the same rooms in conjunction with the other weapons on a player’s ship, it should be fine.
