- "Members of my escort have completed assembly of an E-Web heavy repeating blaster. If you are unfamiliar with this weapon, I am sure that Republican Shock Trooper Carasynthia Dune of Alderaan will advise you that she has witnessed many of her ranks vaporize mid-descent facing the predecessor of this particular model."
- ―Moff Gideon
The E-Web heavy repeating blaster cannon, formally known as the Emplacement Weapon, Heavy Blaster or simply as the E-Web was the most powerful heavy repeating blaster cannon in the Imperial arsenal and commonly used by Imperial snowtroopers of the Galactic Empire.
The E-Web featured rigid mounts to counteract the kinetic energy created by the weapon's formidable firepower, and was usually operated by a two-person crew. However, its set-up time limited its effectiveness. In consequence, various Imperial crews pre-charged its generator for faster assembly, however doing so required careful adjustment of the power flow to prevent an overload.
When the Imperial forces invaded Echo Base on Hoth, they used an E-Web heavy repeating blaster cannon in an attempt to prevent the Millennium Falcon from escaping. A newer model was constructed by 9 ABY and was utilized by Moff Gideon's remnant during a skirmish on Nevarro.
