The E-11 blaster rifle is the ubiquitous armament of Imperial forces throughout the galaxy. While it is often used by lesser factions, the weapon is most assuredly an Imperial development that began widespread use among Imperial Stormtroopers shortly after the conclusion of the Clone Wars and the founding of the Galactic Empire.
Hundreds of these rifles have also fallen into the hands of the Rebel Alliance and, in some instances, found themselves used against Imperial troops. most notably by the Skywalker twins and Han Solo aboard the first Death Star and again by Princess Leia, Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian during their escape from Bespin.
Some commentators also blame this weapon for the allegedly legendary inaccuracy of Imperial stormtroopers in the last engagements of the Galactic Civil War, but this has instead been attributed to conscription of inferior troops, poor cloning templates and battlefield obstructions. The bureaus of Imperial information have refused further comment.
It is unlocked from the start for the Imperial Forces. It can be unlocked for the Rebel Alliance at rank 8 and it costs 1,550 in-game credits to purchase in that case. It has the highest damage amongst the regular blaster rifles and low recoil, as well as good accuracy. However, the E-11's damage decreases over distance and its rate of fire is slower than that of the other starting weapon, the A280C blaster rifle.
The E-11 is the primary weapon of Princess Leia.
Out of the two starting weapons, the E-11 and the A280C, the E-11 has better range and accuracy. In exchange, this weapon suffers from reduced close range power and slower rate of fire compared to its opponent.
The E-11 Blaster is a very effective blaster in all game types due to its good accuracy and decent damage, making it one of the most well-used weapons In the game. It is fairly good in all situations when it comes to medium or long range encounters, although it becomes somewhat less effective at close range since blaster Pistols and the CA-87 will be tough to compete against.
A recommended load out for low-level players that just unlocked the E-11 would be the following:
Pick the Scout Pistol and Pulse Cannon as your Star Cards and the E-11 as your main weapon. This gives you a weapon for close range combat (the Scout Pistol), and a weapon for long range combat (the Pulse Cannon), as well as a weapon for mid range (the E-11), allowing you to have a weapon ready to deal with an opponent at any range, but make sure you cool them down and not use them one by one, or else you will be an easy target.
