- "His weapon was in the sniper configuration."
- ―K-2SO on Cassian Andor's A280-CFE
The A280-CFE (covert field edition) convertible heavy blaster pistol, also known as an A280-CFE blaster rifle, was a modular version of the A280 blaster rifle. It featured a core pistol that could be reconfigured into an assault rifle or sniper rifle. Captain Cassian Andor used an A280-CFE during the Battle on Jedha, the mission to Eadu, and the Battle of Scarif.
Description[edit | edit source]
The A280-CFE convertible heavy blaster pistol featured an over-sized frame sporting the familiar, boxy design known by BlasTech enthusiasts. The CFE could quickly reconfigure into a blaster rifle through two attachments. Initially designed during the Clone Wars, the CFE was popular with the Alliance to Restore the Republic's Fulcrum agents during the Galactic Civil War.
A forward-facing barrel and housing unit with a multi-optic scope clipped on over the pistol barrel, and a buttstock slid into the back to convert the pistol into rifle mode. The added length and stability improved accuracy, while enhanced Galven-patterns increased penetration and cohesion. Unfortunately, the CFE had to use low-powered eleton gas, as the nature of the clip-on barrel precluded using higher-powered gases.
