The TriShot was a weapon that could be considered the pistol form of a shotgun. The TriShot fired three laser bolts at once and did moderate damage, but if used too much too quickly, it would overheat. Some models of Super Battle Droid had TriShots as their secondary weapon. Later, during the Galactic Civil War, the TriShot was modified into holdout blaster form, and may have been used by Renegade Squadron.
Other than it's similarities, it is unknown how else it is related to a Triple blaster.
Behind the scenesEdit
It should be noted that the Super Battle Droid has never been seen utilizing the TriShot weapon except in its appearance in Star Wars: Battlefront and its sequel; as such, this weapon is likely to be simple game mechanics.
