| Physical and technical specifications
| Usage and history
The DE-10 blaster pistol was a model of blaster pistol that saw use in the galaxy during the Galactic Civil War. Its heaviest users in the period were members of the Death Watch, a Mandalorian splinter group based on the Forest Moon of Endor at the time. When a spacer infiltrated the Death Watch bunker, their main base on the moon, sometime after the Battle of Yavin, the sentient discovered a schematic for the weapon along with specialized barrels used in its construction. The spacer eventually had one of the weapons created for personal use.
The DE-10 blaster pistol fired distinctive blue laser bolts, and its hefty weight gave it the feeling of a formidable weapon in trained hands. The majority of the weapon's body was a silver-gray color with a black grip. It had a maximum range of sixty-five meters.

Behind the scenesEdit
The DE-10 blaster pistol appears in the 2003 MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided, developed by Sony Online Entertainment. The weapon requires a player of the Munitions Trader profession to craft. The player must learn the looted schematic before he or she is able to craft it, and may only craft one before needing another schematic. The DE-10 requires special gun barrels looted from enemies within the Death Watch bunker. Although the player may choose whether or not to craft one of the weapons, this article assumes such a path as representative of full game completion. While Galaxies places no restrictions on which professions may use the DE-10, OR-5's version is restricted to the Spy profession. The DE-10 blaster pistol was mentioned in two strategy guides released for the game in 2005—Star Wars Galaxies: The Total Experience: Prima Official Game Guide and Star Wars Galaxies: The Complete Guide: Prima Official Game Guide, both of which list the DE-10 in an index of the various weapons available to players and provide the weapon's general statistics.
