Favourite Weapon of Star Wars - Besides the obvious that is ;)
« on: November 18, 2006, 02:01:28 PM »
Okay, we all know everyone wants a lightsabre, but what would be the ultimate non-lightsabre sidearm to be equipped with in Star Wars?  I would have said the Naboo Palace Guard pistols, but there's just something about them that suggests they're weak as gnat's piss. The one I'd want is the Clone Wars DC-15 repeater rifle

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Clonewars_trooper_800.jpg

as shown in the Clone Wars cartoon series, it's not only a powerful and accurate blaster, it also breaks open for reloading like a double-barrelled shotgun ;D

Anyone else care to pick up this one?
I'm getting to that stage in life where I want to find a nice little place, settle down and spend my declining days on my porch, shitting in my hand and throwing it at passing cars. Is that too much to ask?

That Baragwin assault blade from the first KotOR game was cool (and the Echani blade, but they use the same design :p).

Is that the one that Boba Fett had that was based around a tear gas launcher?

I'll just take a lightreaper.

Okay, we all know everyone wants a lightsabre,

Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side.  8)

No really given a lightsabre I'd probably just chop my own feet off.

Yeah, but with a lightsaber you  can cut up your bread and toast it at the same time...

I like the Scout Trooper sniper rifle from the Battlefront game. A second choice would be the Wookie crossbow.

Jango Fett's blasters, or an Orange Lightsaber.

Ah there are so many good weapons!

Blaster pistol: Naboo Guard S5 or (although probably not strictly a pistol) the DC-15s

Rifle: Either the DC-15 or the Blue Guard Rifle

Heavy Rifle: The T-21 light repeater

Close combat: A jengardin vibroblade

Lightsaber: Purple, One end a meter long and the other 20 cm.

I rather like the DC-15
DH-17
I also like the weapons that involve stuff being blown up into tiny pieces but I guess many would agree.
A lightsaber is also awesome but if I had one it would be yellow because I would be in a Starfleet security uniform.
