The IR-5 "Intimidator" was a rapid-fire blaster pistol manufactured by Merr-Sonn Munitions, Inc.. It was slightly less powerful than a standard blaster pistol, but compensated for this with a rate of fire akin to a repeating blaster and an integrated targeting computer to improve the weapon's accuracy.
Behind the scenesEdit
This blaster pistol appeared in the 2003 video game Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by Sony Online Entertainment and published by LucasArts, prior to its closure on December 15, 2011. In the game, it was simply called the Intimidator pistol, and had an appearance considerably different than the depiction in the Arms & Equipment Guide.
