|13.0||"He got to the edge of the ravine and found himself
twenty meters from the doors, at the top of a ten-meter-high scree slope
from which the snow had long since melted. The quartet of
stormtroopers he'd have to take out were another ten meters beyond the
doors, putting them at a fair distance away as far as a blaster shot
went. Not going to be easy at all." [ "X-Wing:
Isard's Revenge" p.128 ]|
Blaster range is pathetic.
|13.1||"The abundant undergrowth around the Xucphra
corporate headquarters provided Iella and her people the means to get
within twenty-five meters of the back entrance." [ "X-Wing:
The Bacta War", p. 294 ]|
"Because they had been prepared for a close assault, none of her people carried a blaster rifle, just carbines and pistols, so killing both of them from cover was impossible. We might hit them with carbine shots at this range, but the armor means we don't have a guaranteed kill. [ "X-Wing: The Bacta War", p. 294 ]
Considering the fact that Leia's sports blaster was powerful enough to penetrate Stormtrooper armor, this shows that SW carbines and pistols have pathetic range.
|13.2||"He squeezed the trigger again and nothing
happened. The holdout blaster's tiny energy cell had been
depleted with only two shots." [ "Ambush
at Corellia", p. 15 ]|
Pathetic small scale weapons. ST type 1 phasers are smaller than these blasters, and can 'vape' quite a few people without any problems.
|14.0||" The stun-bolt caught
Corran square in the middle of his chest. It did to his nervous
system what an ion-bolt did to a machine. In one instant every
nerve in Corran's body fired, instantly wracking him with pain, burning
him up, shaking, crushing, and freezing him. All of his muscles
contracted, bowing his back, grinding his teeth, and kicking him up into
the air with a little hop. His limp body's impact on the ground
probably hurt, but his nervous system couldn't route reports to his brain
properly, so he really didn't know how he felt." [ "X-Wing:
The Krytos Trap" p.186 ]|
The result of a hit by a stun bolt, and how it affects the human body.
