Star Wars had many cool factors to it and one of them was its massive
array or unique weapons. While the lightsaber might be the most popular
and iconic, the galaxy actually had a ton more weapons that didn’t get
much attention. We’ve found some of the coolest weapons in the Star Wars
series that you might have looked over while watching the movies.
The handheld cutting torch known as the Fushioncutter was also used
through the galaxy and consisted of a handgrip and a long emitter,
producing a high-energy plasma beam that could slice through practically
anything, making it very dangerous!
9. Wrist Rockets
Since they’re light wristbands with a powerful punch, Wrist Rockets
are a favorite weapon choice for bounty hunters like Boba Fett.
8. Flamethower (aka “Flame Projector”)
As a weapon that projects a burning stream of liquid or gas when
fired, the flamethrower was a weapon commonly used during the Clone
Wars, given how useful they were in close-quarters combat.
7. Missile Launchers
These Missile Launchers were used in various types of combat and by
many types of military forces. These would totally eradicate large
6. Ryyk Blades
Another Wookiee-based weapon, the Ryyk Blades may look like simple
swords, but they could still do some serious damage by a giant Wookiee.
5. Flechette Launcher
The Flechette Launcher was used during the last half of the Clone
Wars and fires canisters containing hundreds of sharp flechettes (darts
that would spread out over a large areas). A single canister of these
anti-personal weapons could take out an entire squad of soldiers!
4. Force Pike (aka “Stun Pole”)
A Force Pike was a commonly used weapon used throughout the galaxy.
It features a tip that was a “vibro-edged stun module” that could really
knock you out…even a full-grown Wookiee. It looks whatever, but it
definitely packs some serious stun power!
3. Bowcaster (aka the “Wookiee Crossbow”)
Seems that the Wookiees had some pretty badass weapons in the form of
Bowcasters, which packed some serious firepower! The weapon could
unleash a bolt with some pretty amazing stopping power, which was
essential for the Wookiees as the protected themselves against other
predators of the Kashyyyk’s forests.
In the vast world of Star Wars, a Blaster was our equivalent to a
gun, but instead of shooting bullets, it fired bursts of particle beam
energy, aka blaster bolts. It featured a replaceable power pack and was
the most commonly used weapon in the galaxy, so everybody was packing
one. Since it contained high-energy particles and intense light, targets
would be paralyzed or even killed by such a gun. And like guns today,
they came in various sizes shapes and forms, from rifles to
In Star Wars, Lightsabers are the ultimate weapons. As the formal
weapon of a Jedi Knight, not everybody can master one, but when a Jedi
finally learns the secret of the Force and learns to work his/her
lightsaber, all hell can break lose! The very image of such a weapon was
bounded with the mythos of the Jedi Order, so you definitely don’t want
to mess with anyone who has one of these.
