Feels like there's too much overlap with Beam Fire At Will...

It would also help level the playing field for beam-users in some PvE actions.

Okay well let me put it this way.

Beam Fire At Will gives you no control over what you aim at, and becomes far less effective with each additional enemy that is within targeting range. Cannon Scatter Volley does not suffer from these flaws and more importantly, does not appear to have a cap on the maximum damage it is capable of dealing. The damage potential is already quite a bit higher in the first few seconds than Beam Fire At Will. It's just a much better ability overall, even though Beam Fire At Will can potentially be more useful in some situations than it.

I would also like to add that since the ability makes the escorts so damn efficient at killing mobs, it also obviates the need for crowd control abilities.

Maybe so, but it's already quite a bit better alone than GW.

There are few situations where Gravity Well and Scatter Volley are both required to inflict maximum damage. The former makes the latter better but again, it is rarely needed because latter is already capable without it.
