ParagonMarket PowerSet BeamRifle.png
Beam Rifle is a primary power set for Blasters and Corruptors, and a secondary power set for Defenders. This premium power set is available for 800 Paragon Points on the Paragon Market for Free and Premium Players; VIP Players must also purchase this set.

"Your weapon of choice is a high tech beam rifle capable of firing a wide variety of energy blasts at your foes. Your Beam Rifle attacks will have a greater potency while Disintegration is in effect on your target. Additionally, single target Beam Rifle attacks used on targets suffering from the Disintegrating effect will have a chance to spread this effect to nearby foes. Beam Rifle focuses on dealing a great deal of single target damage, but has a few area of effect attacks as well."

Targets affected by this Disintegrate Spread will also suffer some Minor Energy damage over time.
