"When I witnessed the blaster rifles in their hands... I knew who had been victorious in the skirmish."
Obi-Wan Kenobi's thoughts while spotting a group of Tusken Raiders on Tatooine[4]

Blaster rifles were weapons more powerful and larger than other types of blasters, such as blaster pistols. It was used in various factions.[1] Stormtroopers of the Imperial Army were armed with E-11 medium blaster rifles. The Alliance to Restore the Republic used many different types of blasters, as they could not afford to mass produce weapons. However, the A280 blaster rifle was the standard-issue Alliance rifle.[5]

Pulse cannons were powerful blaster rifles.[6] Assault rifles were modular versions of the blaster rifle.[7] Longblasters had high precision and power over long ranges.[8] Boiler rifles were illegal weapons.[9] Stun rifles were a type of blaster rifle and stun weaponry.[10] The Relby-v10 micro grenade launcher,[11] blaster spear,[12] bo-rifle,[13] and the SP-B50 blaster rifle were blaster/hybrids.[14]

Blaster rifle length ranged from the short E-11 and DC-15A blaster carbine to the longer A280 and DC-15. Rifles almost always had a scope, a fully automatic firing mode, and some kind of stock. Other forms of blaster rifles[15] included blaster carbines,[16] heavy blaster rifles,[17] light repeating blasters, and sniper rifles.[1]
