The pulse rifle is the hypothetical name to a laser rifle seemingly possessed by terrans. It bears great similarity to the C-14 rifle in structure, indicating artistic license. However, it is worth noting that terran laser technology has been scaled down to weapons such as the pulse pistol[1] and is possessed by starships such as the wraith and battlecruiser.[2]
