Fan Shot GH

Han Solo performing a fan shot

A fan shot was a method of rapidly firing a blaster while swinging it in an arc, or "fanning" motion. If done well, several targets could be hit in rapid succession with this maneuver. Smuggler-turned-Rebel Alliance hero, Han Solo, was adept at firing his DL-44 heavy blaster pistol in this manner.[1]

HistoryEdit

Princess Leia Organa used this maneuver during the Battle of Endor when she and Han Solo were cornered by three stormtroopers outside the Endor shield generator bunker. Organa produced a concealed blaster pistol, and swinging the blaster was able to eliminate the stormtroopers in a single moment.[2]

Behind the ScenesEdit

Fan Shot was the name of a combat skill gained by smugglers in the game Star Wars Galaxies.
