The Improved Heavy Medium Laser is Clan Goliath Scorpion's workhorse Heavy Laser design. Like the version introduced by Clan Star Adder, it can inflict twice the damage of a standard Medium Laser. Unlike the Star Adders' weapon, it does not interfere with targeting systems, so Scorpion Warriors have a better chance of hitting their target.[4]

The Improved Heavy Medium Laser's only real drawback is the fragility of the capacitors it uses to store power. Much like a Gauss Rifle, an Improved Heavy Laser will explode if destroyed in combat, inflicting a hit equivalent to a Medium Laser to the 'Mech's internal structure.[5]
