Who else uses the base blasters for any class?

I feel like I'm the only person who ever uses them or even manages to get a kill with them at all now. It's almost the only thing I use on the Assault and Officer besides the EL-16HFE and the S-5 and still keep up with every other specialized weapon. Am I truly alone here or am I just running into no one that does this too?

  • I use the E-11 occasionally, that's it. A couple guys I play with only use base blasters, and also see other players using them in matches.
  • I use the base officer gun and assault gun. But not for the droids. I just can't stand their guns even if they are statistically similar.
  • I prefer the assault default weapon actually except for the resistance one. I occasionally use the default heavy weapon because it has an insane headshot multiplier along with most of them being pretty cool. They might seem mediocre having no attachments but they are actually pretty competitive

  • I love using the base Assault weapons, but hate how the droids and clones have the only base assault weapons with no scope in 1st person.Besides the Heavy weapons and the Officer pistols (besides the one I use, OF COURSE), those are the only 2, which can only be used on a third of the maps. Base Officer pistols, however, are amazing at all times. No scope in 1st person and can down people very easy with a decent fire rate based on the players themselves, and fairly high accuracy to boot. I can't even comprehend how people can underestimate starting weapons so much literally just because they're the starters. Granted, the Assault weapons could use slightly less spread, but beyond that, they're all viable in every situation.

    DH17 is life, along with empire base blaster. FO I just use se44c and either the same or s5 for droids.
  • Default assault blasters are great IMO. Zoom magnification is perfect to me and they can be a very formidable weapon if your headshot aim is on point.

    I do like you !
    DICE should encourage players to play basic weapons : Basic weapons give more Battlepoints ? ( Only for eliminations and not Kill Assist )

    To begin, remove the explosive shot of all weapons ( Heavy ; Officer ) and replace with Ion shot.

    Ion shot should be removable during battle.
    To add a penalty: 7s or 10s to switch between the two shooting modes.

    Note : This penalty is useful for not making ionic weapons too versatile and making basic weapons useless. ( or weapons that does not have an ion shot ).

  • M45! best blaster in the game...and best-sounding B)

    Oh, I zoom every single time I shoot anything. I just don't like the scope of it, I like the "iron sights" like the E-5 and base Officer pistols.
  • what are base blasters? you mean the 1 choice you get first for each class? i think there are only like 4 blasters per class total.
  • The starters. Like the F-11 or the E-5. Stuff that doesn't have mod capabilities.
  • I do, since the E-11 is the only Imperial blaster in the freaking game!
  • Base blasters need to be their own individual weapons and have attachments as they're so underwhelming at the moment, would offer way more weapon variety and make the game look, feel and sound even more “Star Wars". Really disappointed at how they current are, just seems like lazy design.

    Storm troopers were seen with the DLT-19 as well in the films. That is also an imperial weapon. But you have to play specialist.

    For assault, officer and specialist I use the standard weapon, but heavy I use DC-15LE with reduced recoil and enhanced zoom

    I do sometimes just for giggles.
  • I use the Assault one almost exclusively on that class. I often try out the default guns for Heavy and Oficer, and do well enough, but it's hard to really justify them when they offer no actual advantage at all.
  • Why isn't the "default" guns unlockable??? Like wth how can you faction lock a weapon seen and nearly used all the time in star wars such as a e-11? Plus hans dlt pistole is a must.

    I can understand why hero weapons aren't standard like the last game. It's not like we've seen them used by more than 1 person, so that I can see why the change happened.
