The W-90 concussion rifle, also called the LJ-90, was a long-barreled concussion rifle manufactured by BlasTech around the time of the Rebellion.

Description[]

Although it used the same type of targeting scope mount as the E-11 blaster rifle, it was less accurate and had a much longer effective firing range. This model of concussion rifle was used by 4-LOM, who acquired it after he teamed up with Zuckuss, who would also use the same model of blaster rifle on occasion. This weapon created a shockwave upon firing, and was heavy and difficult to handle.[1]


Behind the scenes[]

This rifle is a minor modification of the WWII-era German MG34 machine gun. The same weapon was used as the basis of the DLT-19 heavy blaster rifle. Bounty hunter Dengar is seen holding this rifle in several pre-production stills, but not onscreen.
