Orbital power beam targeter

An ancient targeting unit for a network of power-collection satellites. Once aimed at a target, it directs ancient satellites to begin beaming power down in a massive column of electromagnetic energy. This power can safely be collected in a giant absorption dish. Since you have no absorption dish, you'll be aiming it at enemies, at which point the power column will turn the area into a thousand-degree inferno. This will last until the satellites detect the unsafe targeting, shut themselves down, and permanently deactivate the targeter.

The Orbital power beam targeter is a powerful single-use weapon added in Beta 18.

It requires manual targeting, and has an activation time. Once activated, a massive beam will shoot down from above, dealing massive damage and starting fires.

It has a targeting range of 45 tiles.

For some reason, like all ranged weapons it can't be used when the user is wearing a shield belt.

Usage

It is extremely useful against crashed ship parts, as the beam can vaporize the ship part and down its surrounding mechanoids with a single use.
