Tusken Beam Rifle

The Beam Rifle is the award version of the Sniper Rifle. It can be obtained by achieving the Marksman award. It operates much like a Sniper Rifle, but has a stronger beam and will penetrate units. The beam will also linger for about a second, so you can sweep it around to make hitting a moving enemy easier. This means that you can really do some long range damage to your opponents in a game. It is a very fun weapon to use, as shooting an enemy in the foot is enough to do them in, but has extremely limited ammunition (only 24 shots, with a mere 4 to a clip).

The Beam Rifle is suited for sniping, close quarter combat, and anti vehicle operations. It can have great effect in places like Tantive IV and Polis Massa because the corridors and hallways bunch up one's enemies and the rifle has the ability to shoot through up to 5 people in one shot. To know that you are holding one, your sniper rifle will shoot a purple beam.

Usage Edit

People have expressed their dislike of the Beam Rifle as a Sniper Rifle, saying that they put the dot on a target's head, shoot, and nothing happens. This is true, but it turns out that the Beam Rifle Works differently than the normal Sniper Rifle.

It is impossible to get a headshot with the Beam Rifle if you center the dot on your targets head while zoomed in.

How to get headshots with the Beam RifleEdit

1: Zoom in

2: Center the dot on the top of the targets head, as if you were trying to give them a haircut.

3: Zoom out

4: Fire

It is noted that the dot has to be in the middle of the top of the enemies head. If your aim is off by even a centimeter, you will miss the shot. Due to the fact that the process to get a headshot is long and has to be very precise, you can only do this with stationary targets.

It is worth mentioning that, with the exception of Wookiee Warriors, Clone Commanders, Droidekas (with shields up), and heavy units, a regular Sniper Rifle with the War Hero bonus of stronger fire power can also kill a unit with a single hit on any part of their body.

UnitsEdit

The Beam Rifle must be unlocked to use it.
