The EE-3 carbine rifle was a blaster that was modeled after the E-11 blaster rifle used by Imperial Stormtroopers. The rifle consisted of a small handle attached to a long circular barrel. An alternate version of this model features a modified scope mounting and hand grips that run the length of the barrel.
The EE-3 was used famously by the bounty hunter Boba Fett. Fett modified his by adding a stock and an electronic scope for distance shooting, making it a dangerous weapon. Prince Xizor also used an EE-3 to try to kill Luke Skywalker as the Jedi and his friends escaped the Falleen's palace on Coruscant. Another user of this weapon was the Zabrak bounty hunter Sugi, who wielded it during the Clone Wars and Kiera Swan a Weequay bounty hunter, who died during "The Box" competition.
The second blaster in this video features the EE-3, the pros and cons on using it and how to use it effectively.
