The point of this weapon is to have a 360 degree weapon that deals kinetic damage. With torpedoes, you have to fire at appropriate time that the shields go down and when their destroyed shield is in the firing arc of the torpedo. With the cutting beam, it is just fire and forget like the other beam weapons.
