E-5s sniper rifles were a model of sniper rifle used by sharpshooters of the Confederacy of Independent Systems[2] and the Galactic Empire.[1] They saw action under the Separatist Droid Army during the Clone Wars[2] on the planet Felucia.[3] To target opponents attempting to take cover, a B1-series battle droid took up position and used the rifle from a distance.[4] A tubular device was used to connected the rifle's targeting scope to a battle droid's photoreceptors, which saw through red electrobinoculars.[5]

The rifle was also used by the Empire during the Galactic Civil War against the Alliance to Restore the Republic.[1]
