Heavy Weapons Stormtroopers, also known as Heavy Stormtroopers or Imperial Heavy Gunners, were specially trained stormtroopers armed with large rapid-fire blasters or DLT-19 heavy blaster rifles which could level anything in their path. They also have a slighly higher level of armor which is made of more durable materials compared to the standard stormtrooper armor. However, the improved armor and their choice of weapons limited their mobility. There were several different Heavy Weapons Stormtrooper variants such as the Heavy Sandtrooper, the Heavy Shoretrooper, and the Heavy Snowtrooper.
