The E-5 Blaster Rifle has a large gas chamber that allowed for powerful blasts. It was originally a BlasTech design that was reverse-engineered by Baktoid Armor Workshop for use by its Battle Droid troopers. The fact that the weapon was intended for use by non-living wielders allowed BAW to skimp on some of the finer points - such as the fact that short barreled weapons are comparatively fragile and produce great deal of heat over repeated firings. While these factors might inconvenience a human soldier, a Baktoid Battle Droid has no complaints.
- During the Clone Wars, E-5 blaster rifles were still used by the B1 battle droids, but they were rivaled by the B2 super battle droids, which had wrist-mounted blasters instead of a rifle. The wrist blasters proved to be a more effective and versatile weapon.
- The in-game skin of the E-5 is used for a number of weapons such as the Bulldog RLR, the ACP Shotgun, and the Flamethrower. However the B1 Battle Droid and the Droid Marine are the only units to use this weapon in normal gameplay.
