Medium Heavy Blaster Pistol
Heavy blaster pistols were invented to provide the sort of firepower one expects from a blaster rifle, but in a compact and easily carried sidearm. The weapon produces additional “punch” by drawing heavily on its power pack, reducing the number of shots the power pack can provide (compared to a regular blaster pistol). Han Solo uses a heavy blaster pistol, the BlasTech DL-44.
A heavy blaster pistol requires a power pack to operate. After 50 shots, the power pack must be replaced .
