A repeating blaster[1] or repeating cannon[2] was a category of rapid-fire blaster which were either handheld or mounted.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The Royal Naboo Security Forces utilized the CR-2 blaster pistol, which had an extremely high rate of fire.

During the Clone Wars, the Grand Army of the Republic's clone commandos wielded the DC-17m Interchangeable Weapon System, which could be reconfigured between a repeating blaster rifle and an anti-vehicle grenade launcher.[3] Some regular clone troopers also wielded the Z-6 rotary cannon, and the standard-issue DC-15A blaster rifle (as well as the bulkier DC-15LE variant) had a rapid fire setting. Other handheld rapid fire weapons fielded by major galactic armies included the E-5C wielded by Separatist heavy battle droids, the DLT-19 heavy blaster rifle wielded by Imperial stormtroopers and Rebel soldiers, the RT-97C heavy blaster rifle wielded by Imperial jumptroopers, the TL-50 Heavy Repeater wielded by Imperial Special Forces, and the M-45 repeating ion blaster wielded by Rebel gunners and later Resistance troopers.[3]

Mounted repeating blasters such as the Confederacy of Independent Systems' double-barrel repeating blaster and the Galactic Empire's E-Web heavy repeating blaster cannon served as emplacement weapons with formidable firepower.[1] Baze Malbus utilized an MWC-35c "Staccato Lightning" repeating cannon prior to the Galactic Civil War.[2] The First Order later used the FWMB-10 repeating blaster, which could be mounted on their Light Infantry Utility Vehicles.[4][5]
