Close range beam weapon in water?

"Close-combat beam weapons use the same principle as long range beam weapons, only instead of projecting beams of charged energy, they contain the beam in a continuous arc, even underwater. The ionization field surrounding the beam causes any matter it hits to become super-charged, effectively ripping it apart. "

I don't think that's true, cause that would imply that ALL close-combat beam weapons can be used in water, even though the OZ soldiers were clearly surprised at Deathscythe being able to use its beam scythe underwater, implying that other beam weapons can't do that. Deathscythe's Japanese Wikipedia article mentions that Deathscyther's beam scythe is unique in that it is composed of, IIRC, "multiple layers of beam", so that might be the more reasonable explanation.
