The Plasmasword is a melee weapon added by the Royalty DLC that does a decent amount of damage, has a medium cooldown, and deals sharp damage with the bonus of frequently setting the opponent on fire.

Acquisition

If the Royalty DLC is active, Plasmaswords can be purchased from any combat supplier or war merchant, at Empire settlements or obtained as a quest reward,

Analysis

As the Plasmasword can set enemies on fire, it makes a powerful weapon against non-mechanoid enemies in the game. 1v1 fights generally tilt in favor of the plasmasword wielder since setting enemies on fire can prevent them from fighting back.
