"Blast 'em!"
―A B1 battle droid armed with an E-5[8]

The E-5 blaster rifle was a blaster rifle manufactured by Baktoid Armor Workshop. Reverse-engineered from a BlasTech design, the E-5 was adapted for use by B1-series battle droids and BX-series droid commandos, who used it throughout the Clone Wars, making it the most common weapon of the Separatists. The blaster generated excessive heat, which was caused by it's rapid-fire mode, making it uncomfortable for organics to use but more than adequate for a battle droid.[1] Along with strong blasts as a result of the weapon's large gas chamber, the blaster also supports a stun setting.[1][source?]

Following the Clone Wars, a police droid model[7] that resembled the BX-series commando droid[9] also used the E-5. These police droids wielded E-5s while patrolling a decommissioning facility in Coronet City on the world of Corellia. Additionally, many E-5s and their B1 owners were set to be melted down in the facility, although a number of the droids were reactivated during an infiltration. Many reactivated B1s again wielded E-5 blaster rifles, using them to fire upon the police droids.[7]
