Blaster Info and Tips
When you start, you don't have anything unlocked. Instead, you use the default blasters for each faction. These are the A280C for Rebels and E-11 for Imperials. I'll separate all the blasters by type.
DH-17 (Rank 3, 550 Credits)
- Fully automatic pistol
- Good for medium-range combat.
This is a basic blaster pistol. Good when you need a blaster pistol with no other choice, or if you want to use a pistol at medium-range.
SE-14C (Rank 14, 2,500 Credits)
- 5-round burst fire
- Good for close range.
This is a burst fire weapon, so it is excellent at close range. Blaster pistols, in general, are better at close range that most other guns, so if you use a pistol, this is usually a better choice than the DH-17.
DL-44 (Rank 25. 2,500 Credits)
- Very high damage
- Overheats quickly
This is the blaster made famous by Han Solo. It will do a lot of damage at close range, but it overheats quickly.
A280C (Rank 8, 1,550 Credits)
- Higher rate of fire and cooling power than E-11
- Less damage than E-11
This is the standard blaster you use when playing as Rebels if you don't pick any other blasters. It has decent overall stats and it the better of the two standard weapons if you want higher fire rate.
E-11 (Rank 8, 1,550 Credits)
- Higher damage than A280C
- Lower rate of fire and cooling power than A280C
This is the standard blaster you use when playing as Imperials if you don't pick any other blasters. The higher damage makes up for the lower fire rate and quicker overheat.
EE-3 (Rank 17, 2,500 Credits)
- Shoots a 3-round burst
- Higher range, cooling power, and rate of fire than the other Blaster Rifles
If you like burst weapons, this is for you. It has lower damage than the E-11, but the superior range, cooling power, and rate of fire make up for it.
DLT-19 (Rank 3, 550 Credits)
- High rate of fire and cooling power
- Decent range and low damage
Heavy Blasters are like machine guns. They fire quickly, but have low damage per shot. The range of the DLT-19 is only slightly lower than a Blaster Rifle.
RT-97C (Rank 5, 1,250 Credits)
- Higher damage and range than DLT-19
- Replaces DLT-19
This is better than the DLT-19 in every way. It has higher damage and range, and the other stats are the same. If you are using Heavy Blasters before you unlock T-21, this is the only choice.
T-21 (Rank 10, 2,500 Credits)
- Very high damage
- Very low rate of fire and cooling power
The T-21 has the same range as RT-97C and extremely higher damage. It shoots a lot slower and overheats quick, so aim your shots more carefully.
CA-87 Shock Blaster (Rank 8, 1,550 Credits)
- Maximum damage
- Low stats everywhere else
The shock blaster is basically a shotgun. You will kill nearly everything in 1 shot at close range, but it is useless at any other range. It overheats quick and shoots slow, so make your shots count.
T-21B Targeting Rifle (Rank 21, 2,500 Credits)
- Maximum Range and very high damage
- Low rate of fire and cooling power
This is the Star Wars Battlefront equivalent to a sniper rifle. The high range and damage lets you kill people from far away, but you can't shoot too often with the low rate of fire and cooling power.
