The Extended-Range Small Laser (ER Small Laser) focuses a powerful beam of light on targets that causes damage by overheating or melting the target.

As the name suggests, the Extended-Range variant of the Small Laser increases the power of the beam to project it to much farther ranges. The power necessary to facilitate the production of such generates an increased quantity of waste heat.

Unlike larger laser models, Small Lasers can be mounted on infantry, powered armor, or Elementals due to their small size.

As with most Clan energy weapons, the Clans lack their own standard Small Laser.
