Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)
Rouge One: A Star Wars Story (2016)

Star Wars Stories consists of films set in the Star Wars universe, but outside of either the Original, Sequel or Prequel trilogies. These films include 2016's Rogue One and 2018's Solo..

It should be noted that Rogue One was pulled in for a major reshoot based on a different script, which replaced about 40% of material in the film. As a result, many shots that appeared in marketing for the film do not appear in the final cut. Solo was also pulled in for a major reshoot with a different director, but does not seem to have nearly as much cut material used in its advertising.

It was reported that following the poor box office performance of Solo, all plans for further films in the Stories franchise have been put on indefinite hold, though Lucasfilm has claimed this is not the case.

The following lists the weapons used in the "Stories" films of the Star Wars saga:


Blaster Pistols

A180 Pistol (WE Luger P08)

Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) also uses an A180 pistol, which was based on a Luger P08. This pistol appears to have been built up from an airsoft (6" barrel) WE Luger with a large barrel shroud (reminiscent of the LPA NN-14's from The Force Awakens). The Luger's rear sight has also been removed and the "tab" behind the rear sight ground flat.

BlasTech DH-17 Blaster Pistol (Sterling L2A3)

Rebels in Rogue One once again use the Sterling L2A3-based "BlasTech DH-17 blaster pistol". At least one rebel trooper can be seen using the DH-17 with what appears to be a Magpul CTR stock.

BlasTech DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistol

The DL-44 blaster pistol that was the blaster of choice for Han Solo (Harrison Ford) throughout the previous Star Wars films makes a return appearance for young Han (Alden Ehrenreich) in Solo: A Star Wars Story. In Solo, this pistol was previously fitted with a stock and was used as a sniper rifle.

Unknown Compact Blaster Pistol (FN Five-Seven)

At the end of "Rogue One" Cassian Andor is armed with an unknown compact blaster pistol that is based around an FN Five-seveN.

Blaster Rifles

BlasTech A280CFE and A300 Rebel Blaster Rifles (AR-15)

Captain Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) and some of the other Rebel use blaster rifles based on an AR-15 variant. While visually similar to the A280 blaster rifle from Return of the Jedi, these rifles aren't the same. Andor's weapon is a modular version (perhaps a nod to the AR-15 it's based on) designated as the A280 Covert Field Edition. Andor himself uses the blaster with the stock and all barrel attachments removed, effectively making it a blaster pistol, then later adding parts to his blaster pistol to make what is referred to as a "Sniper Configuration". Some of the Rebel troopers are armed with another blaster rifle based on the AR-15, these are designated as Blastech A-300 blaster rifles. They are fitted with Neuro-Saav NT-43.3 electroscopes and at least one Rebel has a compact version of the blaster rifle with a "sawn off barrel".

Heavy Blasters

Heavy Death Trooper Blaster (MG34)

"Heavy" Death Troopers use a blaster based on the MG34. It is likely meant to be a DLT-19 variant and features what appears to be two underbarrel flashlights.

UT-60D-Mounted Blaster (M60)

In what is perhaps a homage to a scene from Full Metal Jacket, Bistan fires a blaster based on an M60 machine gun out of a UT-60D (U-wing) on Scarif.

Light Blasters

BlasTech E-11 Blaster Rifle (S&T Sterling L2A1)

The "BlasTech E-11 blaster rifle" returns as the standard issue blaster rifle of the Imperial Stormtroopers in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. It remains relatively unchanged from the E-11s seen in A New Hope, minus the addition of Element M300A LED Mini Scout Light (EX 191) flashlights on the side of the barrel, which are knockoffs of the SureFire M300 Mini Scout Light. The E-11s were based on airsoft S&T Sterling L2A1s (rather than the real and MGC Sterlings L2A3s used in The Original Trilogy) with scopes cast from real M38 azimuth tank telescopes. The E-11 is also used by Sandtroopers and some Shoretroopers.

BlasTech SE-14r Light Repeating Blaster (Rexim Favor)

Death Troopers and some Imperial officers carry "BlasTech SE-14r light repeating blasters" (based on Rexim Favors) as their sidearm. K2SO (Voiced by Alan Tudyk) acquires a SE-14r from Jyn during the Battle of Scarif, using it to great effect. The weapon originally appeared in publicity stills for A New Hope, but Rogue One is the first time it has appeared in the films.

BlasTech T-21 Light Repeating Blaster (Lewis Gun)

The "BlasTech T-21 light repeating blaster" is carried by some Stormtroopers in Rogue One. It also features an Element M300A (EX 191) flashlight.

E-11D Blaster Rifle (S&T Sterling L2A1)

Death Troopers use airsoft S&T Sterling L2A1-based E-11D blaster rifles. The blasters feature VFC HK416C-style stocks (SKU: VF9-STK-416E-BK01) and, like a few other weapons, Element M300A (EX 191) flashlights.

DT-29 Heavy Blaster pistol (MP40)

Director Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn) carries a DT-29 heavy blaster pistol, which based on a cut-down MP40 with a scope. The DT-29 appears to be have been custom made, as there are significant structural differences between it and the MP40.

E-22 Blaster Rifle (S&T Sterling L2A1)

Some Shoretroopers use the double-barreled E-22 blaster rifle, which is based on the airsoft S&T Sterling L2A1 with a second barrel, a precision stock, and an Element M300A (EX 191) flashlight added. Like the Death Trooper blaster, this blaster is also likely meant to be some kind of E-11 variant, especially considering the E-22 designation (which presumably is a reference to the two barrels).
