Sonic rifles were the sonic analog to the blaster rifles, capable of striking targets from a greater range than the heavy sonic blaster while still maintaining the same damage.


Sonic rifles tended to be less powerful than conventional blasters, but they compensated for this by being more likely to pierce less advanced personal energy shields and disorienting their targets with sensory overload.

Like all sonic weapons, the sonic rifle was particularly effective against Jedi and Sith because the weapon could not be deflected by a lightsaber.[1] Additionally, the sonic damage was sometimes able to disrupt the target's equilibrium, causing disorientation.[3]


Variants of the sonic rifle included the SonoMax 100, the SWE/2 sonic rifle, the Arkanian sonic rifle, and the Sg-82 sonic rifle.
