During 1 ABY, spacers who assisted either the Rebellion or the Empire during the Battle of Restuss and received commendations for their actions were able to requisition this rifle from a factionally aligned Commendation officer.
Behind the scenesEdit
This pistol is one of the many items featured in Star Wars Galaxies as part of the Battle of Restuss story arc. Players received a commendation item for assisting their chosen faction, which could be stacked and traded for various items from Commendation Officer NPCs. In the article Weapons don't start wars... you do!, the M-XII pistol was erroneously called the Crusader M-XIII carbine.
