The SE-14r light repeating blaster, sometimes referred to as the Imperial repeating pistol, was an alternate model of BlasTech Industries' SR combat pistol with fully-automatic capabilities. Manufactured specifically for the Galactic Empire, it was carried as a sidearm by some Imperial officers and stormtrooper commanders.[2]

DescriptionEdit

The SE-14r light repeating blaster was an alternate model of the semi-automatic SR combat pistol used by the Separatist Droid Army at the height of the Clone Wars with fully-automatic capabilities,[1] combining the portability and ease of use of a blaster pistol with a high rate of fire. However, this made it more likely to run out of ammo during an extended firefight or series of engagements[2] and overheating stemming from prolonged discharges of the weapon was capable of warping the SE-14r's barrel, causing potentially catastrophic malfunctions.[1]

HistoryEdit

Although BlasTech Industries created the SE-14r specifically for the Imperial Military, some found their way onto the black market, where they fetched a high price.[2]

BlasTech later introduced the SE-14C blaster pistol, which addressed the SE-14r's heat management issues by integrating the power pack into the back of the barrel.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Despite never actually appearing in the film, the SE-14r was seen in publicity photos of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.[4]

In the PlayStation 2 versions of the Star Wars: Battlefront[3] and Star Wars: Battlefront II, the SE-14r was carried as a sidearm by some Imperial units, while it was replaced by the scout trooper blaster pistol in the PC and Xbox versions.[5]

In Star Wars: Empire at War[6] and its expansion, Star Wars: Empire at War: Forces of Corruption, oversized SE-14rs were carried by stormtroopers in urban, forest, swamp, and temperate environments, and by Imperial Field Commanders and scout troopers in all environments.[7]
