NOT 5+ phasers

narrow stun

wide stun

wide beam

narrow beam

dule beam

BUT ONLY ONE PHASER per "type" (type could have been the MK#)

Always was annoying they did that, guess they had to split up the function to boost the item drops.

IMHO, they should have basic firing phasers, Uncommon having 2 settings, Rare with 3, Very Rare with 4, and Unique with 5 or more. That way the lower rarities, you could mix up the types like we have with modifiers. Or mixing up settings with modifiers.
