Beam lasers fire a sustained arc of energy that persists as long as the trigger is held down. Beam lasers have one of the shortest ranges of all laser types and have massive recoil. The only exception is if the Beam is produced by Hyperion, in which the arc becomes more accurate with extended use.
Depending on the manufacturer of the laser's body, Beam lasers can spawn with manufacturer-specific gimmicks:
Dahl Beams fire in bursts when zoomed in and have reduced recoil. It also comes with the ability to penetrate through enemy targets, inflicting damage to several enemies at once.
Hyperion Beams start with a low accuracy that improves as the weapon is fired for longer. It also has a 50% bonus to critical hit damage (60% with a Hyperion stock).
Maliwan Beams have an increase in elemental damage and chance, making it reliable for inflicting elemental status effects. It also has a continuous damage bonus that deals more damage the longer the trigger is held.
Tediore Beams deal less damage than the amount listed but have quick reloads. When reloaded, the weapon is thrown and acts like a Tesla grenade.
