Another thing is blasters.
In my KOTOR-era threads I talked about the DLA-7, a simple, powerful, but most importantly cheap rifle that was practically MADE to break so you could slap on the aftermarket repair bits and survive a whole campaign with a frankenstein blaster brought back over and over gain from the dead so you could shoot the badman Belkadan or Tionese secessionist for wrongthink.
This newest brand of BlasTech autism would be the DLA-12, but this time it's an entire weapons platform built around the same receiver.
There's the pistol, it's small, it's gay. With a tinier and bitchier chamber, it's perfect for Republic officer FOBbits that like to put their guns in their mouth because they can't do cool stuff like battle Rattataki pirates or police Ryloth's underground red light districts.
Next up's the rifle. It's a blaster rifle designed to not melt its insides by using cleverly positioned vents, like the ones right below the fucking scope that totally won't that expensive piece of equipment, and the emergency one placed in the perfect spot to put Count Dooku out of the job and remove your hand for you. (To be fair, it's an emergency one you have to jump through a couple of lever hoops to activate. It's a last ditch sort of thing to save the weapon after you just overcharged it putting down that scary Zeltron hooker you didn't wanna pay)
Then there's the long-dong version for species with tiny wangs such as Rodians, Weequay, and Muuns. It's designed to be a marksman's rifle or your squad's automatic weapon for when your sergeant would prefer YOU to melt your gun's guts rather than the whole squad doing it.
Another important feature is at the end of the barrel, a beam disperser that goes the extra mile to make sure the retarded Nikto conscripts don't liquefy the gun. This limits it's range, penetration, and stopping power, but does wonders for keeping the gun working.
>wood panels VS black panels
That's just a little lore thing I tossed in, having wooden bits on the gun you want to hand out to your galaxy-wide army is dumb, but when the weapon trials were being done on Alderaan BlasTech's big brained muunitic shareholders hat the clever idea to make the paneling resemble local Alderaanian lumber, specifically the pine wood native to the Glarus Valley. The first 6,000,000 gorillion units had this fake wood shit, all models manufactured afterward were given BlasTech's signature cheap polymer stuff that totally doesn't melt in the sunlight just make sure not to put it on your dashboard space goy
Next up we got what is TECHNICALLY the DLA-13, but it's not on any military market, and is instead only produced for the Sith military.
The Sith's blaster platform is what the Republic WISHED they got. A bit more expensive, (that's was a very liberal usage of 'bit') a whole lot cooler and better-er, the Sith came packing serious heat when Vitiate came a calling.
Where the DLA-12 has a beam disperser that adds to the weapon's longevity, the Sith went in the other direction and added a beam narrower that's does the direct opposite, allowing the blasters to considerably punch above their weight.
Also a maxim gun-esque cooling shroud nullifies the need for the vent autism on its predecessor, so the only true vent the blaster has is that little gas rod thing poking out underneath the barrel.
The blaster also has a collapsing stock, that's cool right?
