Description

The standard ranged weapon of both military personnel and civilians in the galaxy, the blaster pistol fires cohesive bursts of light-based energy called bolts. Blasters come in a variety of shapes and sizes, delivering a wide range of damage capability. Many blaster pistols have stun settings that incapacitate a target, rather than inflicting physical damage. While blasters do deliver a searing concussive blast, they can be foiled by magnetic seals and deflector shields.

Lightsaber

The Jedi do not carry blasters -- Obi-Wan Kenobi described the most common weapon in the galaxy as "clumsy and random." Using instead their more elegant lightsabers, Jedi Knights can deflect incoming blaster bolts, giving the short-ranged weapon a surprising long-range reach.
