The core function of the Multi-Tool is the Mining Beam. The Mining Beam is used to harvest resource from plants and minerals. Use LPM to fire the laser.
Some resources require an Advanced Mining Laser to harvest. Other improvements include upgrades to the laser's power and heat management, and boosts to the number of resources collected.
The Mining Beam is recharged with carbon-based fuels. It can be used to melee (Key Q) to gather carbon from plants in the event of total power loss.
Find new Multi-Tools in space stations and planetary outposts. Different styles of Multi-Tool increase your ability to harvest resources, scan discoveries or fight.
