The WESTAR-34 was a small, silver blaster pistol made from dallorian alloy.

DescriptionEdit

Jango Fett's holster belt.

The WESTAR-34 fired powerful bolts that were very effective at close range. The blaster was designed specifically for sustained close-range use, utilizing its dallorian construction to absorb more heat than a standard blaster. The pistol's expensive custom-made finish made it impervious to furnace fire. They were also small and compact enough to fit into a jetpack.

HistoryEdit

Favoring agility and precision over high capacity, Jango Fett had a pair of WESTAR-34 blaster pistols custom-made. Designed for brief but intense surprise attacks at close range, the pistols had weight-minimizing modifications and were made of an expensive Dallorian alloy which could withstand sustained-fire heating that would melt most ordinary guns. During his duel with Obi-Wan Kenobi on Kamino, Jango lost one of his WESTARs to the raging sea. He continued to use his remaining blaster against Jedi Knights on Geonosis, killing Coleman Trebor. Jango managed to finish off the Reek in the Execution Arena with one shot from his pistol. Jango then lost his second blaster to Mace Windu's lightsaber seconds before Mace decapitated him.

Quinlan Vos also carried one of these when he was undercover as Korto Vos. After Jango Fett's death, Boba acquired two custom WESTAR-34s that Jango Fett had specially made to fit Boba. Another notable user of the WESTAR-34 was Kal Skirata.

Behind the scenesEdit

In the animated segment of The Star Wars Holiday Special, Boba Fett uses a blaster that looks remarkably like the WESTAR-34 blaster pistol that his father uses in Attack of the Clones. Whether this inspired the WESTAR-34's design is unknown.

In his first battle with Obi-Wan Kenobi from Attack of the Clones, Jango Fett's pistols sounded much like a regular blaster, but when he used them on Geonosis, they had a unique sound.
