Description[edit]

The improved Gauss rifle was created by Clan Goliath Scorpion scientists during the Golden Century. It acted as a bridge weapon that linked the SLDF's Gauss rifle to the later Clan-spec version used in the Clan Invasion.[2] Though its production would be cancelled in 2837, it would be reintroduced by the Escorpión Imperio in 3080.[1]

Rules[edit]

The improved Gauss rifle's capacitors remain charged and explosive at all times, even when the unit carrying it is shut down or the crew/pilot is unable to act. If it suffers a critical hit, the carrying unit will deliver a 20-point internal explosion.[2]

In all other respects, it follows the rules for the Gauss rifle.[2]
