Blasters – The most common type of weapon in the galaxy is the blaster. Blasters come in a seemingly infinite array of shapes and sizes, from small holdout pieces that can be hidden in a sleeve or pocket to heavy repeaters used to mow down whole squads of infantry and destroy light vehicles. All blasters use some sort of highly pressurized volatile combustible gas, such as Tibanna gas, as their propellant. When the weapon is fired, the gas is pushed through a second chamber that “excites” the gas. The next compartment converts the gas into energy particles, which are then focused through a crystal of some sort. The end result is a dense packet of charged particles that can tear through everything from flesh to duracrete to armor alloys.

Most blasters can be set to Stun, a non-lethal, low-powered setting that overloads a target’s nervous system and renders him temporarily paralyzed (see the Stun Damage quality). Blasters with this ability have it noted in their special qualities, listed as “Stun Setting.” Stun may only be used at short range, no matter what the weapon’s normal range is. Switching between “Stun” and “Kill” on such a weapon is relatively simple, and requires an incidental.

Blasters that deal only Stun damage, and no conventional damage, are known as stingbeams or simply stun blasters. Blaster carbines and all pistols, save for heavy blasters, can be purchased as stun blasters, at a cost equal to half the usual amount for the regular, full-powered version.

From Age of Rebellion

Over two meters long and fed either from a standard power magazine or from a backpack-mounted power generator, light repeating rifles are used in militaries throughout the galaxy as light squad support weapons. With their high cyclic rate of fire and their excellent penetration and stopping power, light repeating blasters grant a squad of infantry the power to take on the toughest foes and even to engage with light and medium armored vehicles. Light repeating blasters are typically carried by a dedicated support gunner who has both the training and the tools required to use and maintain these deadly weapons. Light repeating blasters are heavily restricted and may only be legally purchased by state-operated forces such as the Imperial Army or planetary defense forces, or by private military contractors.

From Edge of the Empire

Light repeaters are support weapons for military and mercenary units. They feature a high rate of fire and are designed to suppress and injure unarmored personnel. The hail of “light” produced by these rapid-firing weapons is often enough to force enemies to ground.

Fantasy Flight Rules – Light Repeating Blaster
  • Source: Age of Rebellion Core Rulebook (sw-ffg-ar-cr-176), Edge of the Empire Core Rulebook (sw-ffg-ee-cr-162)
  • Light Repeating Blaster Skill: Ranged – Heavy, Damage: 11, Crit: 3, Range: Long, Encumbrance: 7, Hard Points: 4, Price: 2,250 credits (R), Rarity: 7, Special Qualities: Auto-fire, Cumbersome 4, Pierce 1
    • Auto-Fire (Active) A weapon with Auto-fire can be set to shoot in rapid succession and potentially spray an area with bolts, flechettes, slugs, or other types of projectiles. The advantage in using Auto-fire is that it has the chance to hit multiple targets or hit a single target multiple times.
      • Attacking with a weapon on Auto-fire is generally less accurate and the attacker must increase the difficulty of the attack check by (one difficulty dice) The user may choose to not use the Auto-fire quality on a weapon; in this case, he cannot trigger the quality but also does not suffer the aforementioned penalty.
      • If the attack hits, the attacker can trigger Auto-fire by spending (two advantages). Auto-fire can be triggered multiple times. Each time the attacker triggers auto-fire, it deals an additional hit to the target. Each of these counts as an additional hit from that weapon, and each hit deals base damage plus the number of uncanceled (successes) on the check.
      • These additional hits can be allocated to the target, or to other targets within range of the weapon. If the attacker wishes to hit multiple targets, he must decide to do so before making the check. Furthermore, if he wishes to hit multiple targets, his initial target must always be the target with the highest difficulty and highest defense (if this is two separate targets, the GM chooses which target is his initial target). The initial hit must always be against the initial target, subsequent hits generated can be allocated to any of the other designated targets.
      • Auto-fire weapons can also activate one Critical Injury for each hit generated on the attack per the normal cost; the Critical must target the target of the specific hit.
    • Cumbersome (Passive) A Cumbersome weapon is large, unwieldy, awkward, or heavy. To wield a Cumbersome weapon properly, the character needs a Brawn characteristic equal to or greater than the weapon’s Cumbersome rating. For each point of Brawn the character is deficient, he must increase the difficulty of all checks made while using the weapon by one.
    • Pierce (Passive) An attack made with this weapon ignores one point of soak for each rank of Pierce. If the weapon has more ranks of Pierce than the target’s total soak, it completely ignores the target’s soak. For example, Pierce 3 against a soak of 2 ignores 2 points of soak, but the extra “point” of Pierce has no further effect.
