Description: The TL-50 Heavy Repeater, also known as the TL-50 Repeater, was a model of heavy repeating blaster rifle that was manufactured for the special forces of the Galactic Empire. In addition to sending storms of blaster bolts from its multiple barrels, the rifle could gather its energy into a powerful concussion blast. It could also be modified with an extended barrel for reduced spread, and with a power cell for increased cooling power. During the Galactic Civil War against the Rebel Alliance, Commander Iden Versio of the Empire's elite Inferno Squad carried a TL-50 Heavy Repeater.
The TL-50 Heavy Repeater, or simply the TL-50 Repeater, was a model of heavy repeating blaster rifle that was capable of discharging storms of red-colored blaster bolts. Thanks to the rifle's reinforced casing with built-in power cell, it could additionally gather energy to release a lethal concussion blast as secondary fire.
The standard TL-50 Heavy Repeater was black in color and consisted of triple barrels, arrayed in a triangular pattern. The weapon's frame contained cooling vents housed around the triple barrels, with a sight positioned at the top. Two horizontal tubes underneath the weapon connected the front of the rifle to the dark-green stock. The blaster rifle additionally possessed a trigger guard.
The repeating blaster also came with a variant equipped with dual barrels but without the concussion-blast ability. Unlike the standard TL-50, the modified version lacked the horizontal tubes on the underside of the weapon. The TL-50 could additionally be modified with an extended main barrel featuring a larger sight that allowed for greater precision during sustained fire, along with a power cell attached to one side of the weapon, which produced two red lights, for superior cooling power.
The TL-50 Heavy Repeater was manufactured for Imperial Special Forces during the reign of the Galactic Empire. Sometime between 19 BBY and 10 BBY, Masse Goskey, the proprietor of Masse Goskey's Arms Emporium and Explosives Mart in Mos Eisley spaceport on the planet Tatooine, and his associate Ephant Mon purchased a TL-50 for 3,200 credits. Mon recorded the transaction in a book that would eventually be known as the Smuggler's Guide.
A TL-50 Heavy Repeater was used by Commander Iden Versio, who served as the leader of the Empire's special operations team Inferno Squad during the Galactic Civil War against the Rebel Alliance, until her defection during Operation: Cinder, following the Battle of Endor in 4 ABY. Her Heavy Repeater was the standard-issue TL-50 with triple barrels, modified with a power cell for greater cooling power. A stormtrooper squad leader also used a TL-50 Heavy Repeater on one occasion.
