Description: The A280C blaster rifle was a modified variant of the popular A280 rifle and was the preferred weapon of Alliance commandos. It featured a high rate of fire and was known for its excellent firepower and sturdy design.
For nearly a century, the A280C heavy blaster rifle was one of BlasTech's top-selling combat rifles. Before the Clone Wars, the A280 was the de facto standard-issue infantry service rifle for many planetary defense forces and private militias. While bulky, it was accurate and durable, and it continued to see service throughout the Outer Rim Territories.
Nearly every military academy, militia, and military in the galaxy trained with the A280C prior to the Clone Wars. It wasn't until more modular platforms were adopted by the Republic that the A280C's popularity waned. As the Empire absorbed or disbanded local defense forces, decommissioned A280Cs flooded the secondhand market, eventually finding their way to the Rebel Alliance, where they quickly became standard issue. Even the bounty hunters and commandos that worked for Haxion Brood were equipped with them.
