The Deck Sweeper by Merr-Sonn Munitions, Inc. was a stun blaster that was designed to stun large numbers of people at once. Based on the Firespray DL-87 stun rifle, the Deck Sweeper was a close-range crowd control weapon. It was popular with police and security forces, who appreciated the need for nonlethal responses. Unlike normal blaster weapons, the Deck Sweeper only fired in stun mode; it had no lethal setting. It covered a wide area in one shot, creating a stunning cone that was about 9 meters long and 9 meters wide.
