Usage and history


The E-5 blaster rifle was the standard-issue armament of the OOM and B1 battle droids and the elite BX-series droid commando. The E-5 blaster rifle was a powerful, light, but somewhat inaccurate weapon.

The E-5 blaster rifle was manufactured by Baktoid Armor Workshop on order from the Trade Federation for their Droid Army.

The weapon had a large gas chamber that allowed for powerful blasts. It was originally a BlasTech design that was reverse-engineered by Baktoid Armor Workshop for use by its droid troopers. The fact that the weapon was intended for use by non-living wielders allowed BAW to skimp on some of the finer points -such as the fact that short barreled weapons are comparatively fragile and produce great deal of heat over repeated firings. While these factors might inconvenience organic soldiers, a Baktoid Battle Droid has no complaints.

During the Clone Wars, E-5 blaster rifles were still used by B1 battle droids, but they were rivaled by the B2 super battle droids, which had a wrist-mounted blaster instead of a rifle, something that proved to be a more effective and versatile weapon.

Behind the scenesEdit

In Star Wars: Battlefront II, the shotguns of engineer droids, the Bulldog RLR of the IG-100 MagnaGuards, and the flamethrower used by Jango Fett use the same model as the E-5 blaster rifle.

In the Krome Studios version of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed many imperial troops were using laser-guided rifles that resemble the E-5 blasters as seen and proven in the concept art of the game as well.
