Plasma cutters are widely used in asteroid mining and spaceship salvage. In mining, industrial grade cutters attached to “crawlers” are the norm. However, man-portable units are commonly allocated as a survival tool in cave-in search and rescue. Man-portable units are also commonly used in the Zero-G environment of spaceship salvage where other, more bulky units would be unwieldy.
Of course, while intended as a tool, they can make a handy improvised weapon in the right hands. A plasma cutting torch will cut through flesh and body armor with just as much ease as rock or spaceship alloys.
