Technically, the Body Hits rule from High Tech does not apply to tight-beam burning damage.

It should, almost certainly, but having it do so is a house rule.

My copy reads "Whenever an attack that inflicts impaling, piercing, or
tight-beam burning damage" (HT162). So it seems like the body hits rule does apply to tight-beam burning.
