- "Blast 'em!"
- ―A B1 battle droid armed with an E-5
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 made it uncomfortable for organics to use but was more than adequate for a battle droid.
