X-Pulse Lasers are 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 a new weapon per se, but an upgrade that is separately added to the weapon for an additional cost. X-Pulse lasers also build up tremendous heat but technicians have considered this as a necessary drawback. This weapon is currently still in its prototype stages.[2]

The Small X-Pulse Laser is the smallest of these weapons. It has good damage potential for its heat and boasts almost as much range as a Medium Pulse Laser, and its range matches that of a Small Pulse Laser. Like all pulse lasers, the higher rate of fire allows for increased accuracy.
