The Mining Laser is a Device introduced by IndustrialCraft 2. With GregTech installed, it is a more expensive item, requiring Helium Cells in its construction. It is more advanced than a Mining Drill and offers several different modes of mining (such as Scatter and Explosive).The mining laser shoots lasers that break all bricks in its way. The laser holds a charge of 200,000 EU permitting 160 shots in standard mode (1250 EU per shot). Some modes use less EU, and more intense beams consume more. These modes are interchanged by holding down the M key and right clicking - this key may be different for you depending on your configuration.
