It's super weak -- it only kills things that would die from a single charged shot.

Plus Wave beam adds a lot of power -- but wave beam by itself kind of sucks -- it works much better with the Spazer.

You get the Spazer WAAAAAAAAY before you get the Wave beam -- it's like on the way to Norfair -- whereas the Wave beam is well into Norfair.
