The heavy blaster rifle was a larger, more powerful version of the blaster rifle often used by clone troopers, stormtroopers, and other troopers.

Description[]

The heavy blaster rifle was well suited to battles on open terrain but not close-quarters fighting because of its large size. It was one of the most powerful type of blaster rifles, however the greater power came at a cost of a lower ammunition capacity of 30 shots.[1] The heavy blaster rifle included a single-shot mode and an autofire mode for rapid automatic fire, as well as a close range stun setting. The most popular model included the DLT-19 heavy blaster rifle which was used during the time of the Galactic Empire. Other models included the StarAnvil heavy blaster rifle and the RT-97C heavy blaster rifle.

History[]

Heavy blaster rifles were used by cold assault battle droids[2] and clone trooper commanders.[1]
