Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Force Unleashed Campaign Guide
Designed by Golan Arms under exclusive contract with the Galactic Republic, and then the Empire, the CR-1 Blast Cannon fires a burst of blaster bolts, each at reduced power, that spread out in an ever-expanding wave of energy. Often used to suppress riots or eliminate threats gathered in large crowds, the CR-1 Blast Cannon can be incredibly lethal at Short and Medium Range, but becomes ineffective at Long Range.
The CR-1 Blast Cannon is treated as a Pistol for the purposes of determining the weapon's Range. However, the CR-1 Blast Cannon does not take Range Penalties to attack rolls, instead applying any Range Penalties to damage rolls.
