Description[edit]

X-Pulse Lasers were an attempt by Inner Sphere technicians to increase the range of Pulse Lasers to compete with the longer ranges of similar Clan models. X-Pulse lasers are not an entirely new weapon per se, but rather an upgrade that is separately added to the weapon for an additional cost. X-Pulse lasers also build up tremendous amounts of heat, but this has been considered by technicians as a necessary drawback. This weapon is currently still in its prototype stages.[4][5]

Like their standard pulse counterparts, Medium X-Pulse Lasers are the workhorse of the X-Pulse lasers series, and though they build large amounts of extra heat, they boast the same range as a standard Medium Laser. They also offer the improved targeting of the standard Pulse laser.[5]
