Particle beams are miniature energy projectors used by protoss probes.[1] They have been in use since the Protoss Empire,[2] and continue to be used by the Daelaam. While particle beams are commonly used to collect samples and mineral crystals, the beam can be boosted to cause kinetic damage to targets deemed a threat.[1]
