Czerka Arms, also known as the Czerka Corporation,[2] was an arms manufacturer that produced the Adventurer slugthrower rifle, which was used by the bounty hunter Aurra Sing during the final decades of the Galactic Republic.[4] They also manufactured combat gear, such as the ACH-14 advanced combat helmet.[5] Czerka Arms made heavy use of slave labor and employed extensive mechanisms to both prevent slave escapes and recapture those who did.[2]

Princess Fanry of the planet Pijal described the Czerka Corporation as being nearly as powerful as the Galactic Senate. Czerka was thousands of years old, and rumored by some to be older than the Republic itself.[2]


In 40 BBY, Czerka Corporation was involved in the Opposition Campaign on the planet Pijal. The ruler of the planet, the young princess Fanry, sought to eject the Czerka Corporation from Pijal after many centuries of an alliance with the corporation. The Jedi Knights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn were dispatched to the planet in order to oversee Fanry's coronation ceremony, but ended up quelling a potential civil war between Fanry and her Blackguard, the Czerka Corporation, and a contingent of former Czerka slaves.[2]

In the final decades of the Galactic Republic, the Czerka Corporation sponsored podraces in the Outer Rim Territories. Czerka Arms had a sordid reputation, and was long suspected of laundering money into the Outer Rim by the Coruscant Security Force.[9]

In 4 ABY, during the Iron Blockade of the Anoat sector by the Galactic Empire, the local branch of Czerka Arms found itself cut off from its corporate masters.[1]

This section of the article assumes 100% game completion of Star Wars: Uprising. Any alternate stories may be noted in the "Behind the scenes" section. The events in this section may or may not have been confirmed as canon.

In exchange for fortifying their facility, the Czerka employees of the Anoat sector eventually agreed to join the cause of the Smuggler, a young scoundrel who led the resistance against the Empire.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Czerka Arms was first created for The Rebel Alliance Sourcebook, released by West End Games as a supplement for its Star Wars Legends Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game. It was featured in the Legends video game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and its sequel, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, appearing as an occasional antagonist faction.
