"Without the weapon itself, our project is nothing more than a very costly artificial planetoid."
Mas Amedda[src]

The superlaser was the primary weapon of the Death Star, a powerful laser weapon. It was powered by eight kyber crystals which would combine into a single focused blast of incredible power, capable of destroying an entire planet[2]. It was employed on both the original Death Star and the second one; used both to destroy the planet Alderaan, as well as several Rebel capital ships at the Battle of Endor. The superlaser was first tested by Orson Krennic, but only on a city scale rather than planetary scale, on the main city of Jedha: Jedha City. The superlaser was again used by Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin on the high-security data bank on the planet Scarif on a regional scale, in order to protect the Death Star plans being stolen by Rogue One. Despite Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin's failure to protect the Death Star plans, he was successful in killing the entire squad, including Jyn Erso.
