The ARC-9965 blaster was an Imperial blaster rifle used by stormtroopers. They were the most common firearms for stormtroopers around the year 130 ABY, during the Massacre at Ossus, and were still in use as of 137 ABY.


The ARC-9965 was a significant upgrade over the antique E-11 rife, and it was designed with accuracy in mind. To achieve the desired result, designers consulted some of the best sharpshooters in the galaxy. The accuracy came at a price, though; the high-energy bolts required more energy and resulted in decreased ammunition capacity.
