The plasma cutter is primarily a short range weapon, but can provide an accurate long range energy blast.
This tool provides quite a unique feature where the user can rotate the energy blast orientation by 90 degrees.
Dead Space 2
The plasma cutter featured in Dead Space 2 is a jury-rigged combination of a flashlight and a surgical laser as opposed to the mining tool used in the first game. The old model can be purchased at a store for zero credits if the player has a game save from the original Dead Space. These cutters share the same upgrades, which now includes a flame effect.
