best big boom gun, ranged heavy

Recommended Posts

So im doing a pathfinder or trailblazer / martial artist (later maybe assassin)

And while mostly fighting unarmed or with a simple melee weapon,  he was stranded on a desolate world for a while and scavanged some sort of ranged weapon,  mostly used to keep big nasty predators at bay...  Now that he's off planet  he uses it only in extreme situations a back up or preemptive strike on a big baddie.  So it's gotta be something you'd  find in an abandoned base not something super  duper rare Or expensive.

..pretty much anything with Autofire, unless you're actually looking for a ranged weapon the Blast Quality...in which case; 

Arakyd Accelerated Charged Particle Array Gun (Dangerous Covenants p.42)

or

Corondexx VES-700 Pulse Rifle (Fly Casual p. 44) 

Both are Rarity 6, Under 1000cr and have the Blast Quality (5 & 6 respectively) 

There are also several Slug-Throwers that have Blast on this page; http://swrpg.viluppo.net/equipment/weapons/category/2/

Though I am curious to know where you got "Detonator Rounds" from...never heard of them but sounds like the kind of thing my Gand would appreciate...8)

Detonator rounds are alternative ammo for various Czerka slugthrowers (Model 38, EtU pp 40-41 and Model 57, SS, pp41-42). They replace the Pierce characteristic with lowish Blast ratings and Knockdown.

 

EDIT: Corrected Model #

If he scavenged from an abandoned base, have it be a Wookiee base, and he found a bowcaster.  I like the thought of a non-wookiee with a bowcaster because he spent years in the wilderness with no other options.  Otherwise, price/damage leans to Blaster Rifle, Heavy Blaster Rifle, or Light Repeating Blaster (depending on cost).

I really like the KS-23 Hammer, it's basically a Shotgun. 1500cr/rarity 5 makes it fit your particular narrative requirements, Damage 8, Blast 6, knockdown. But it's the 4 Hard Points that really are great. Sure it's range is only Short, but it still hits very hard for a slug thrower.
