Arc Lightning Gun
The Arc Lightning Gun, despite it unoriginal but descriptive name is a +1 shock laser gun, what make it unique is that after the initial target the beam arc and hit a secondary target for each attack granted by base attack bonus after the first, not a single target may be farther than 30 ft. away from the last. You make a single attack roll against the primary target and use it for each secondary target, taking a cumulative -5 penalty on the attack roll for each secondary target and only dealing half damage on secondary target. It does not matter if any of the attack miss, the beam will still arc from target to target.
Sadly the lightning must arc to the maximum number of target possible, sometime needing to hit an object or nonhostile creature, you do decide which target is prioritized however.
If you have the weapon focus (laser gun) feat you gain complete control over the arc function (and may have it not arc at all by example) and may have it arc to one additional target at Bab +9 and Bab +18.
