CA-87 blasters were shock blasters created by Jawas and retrofitted to create a short-ranged weapon, and were mainly used to disable droids. After they were modified to shoot blaster cartridges, however, these blasters, despite their inaccuracy at range, could be deadly in close quarter combat. A single shot could easily slice through most body armor. The weapons were in use during the Galactic Civil War on both sides.

Behind the scenes[]

The CA-87 shock blaster first appears in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, but also appears in the 2015 canon video game Star Wars Battlefront. Most of the prop is made from a Lee-Enfield, extremely cut down and fitted with a grenade launcher cup over what remained of the barrel.[source?] It also appears in Star Wars Battlefront II as a Repulsor Cannon ability card for the specialist class.[1]
