A Rotary Blaster Cannon is a Heavy Weapon that fires a massive spray of blaster bolts at a target. Coming to prominence at the dawn of the Clone Wars, Merr-Sonn's Z-6 Rotary Blaster Cannon is similar to a Heavy Repeating Blaster in many ways. It is carried by a single heavy-weapons specialist, but unlike most Heavy Repeating Blasters, the Z-6 Rotary Blaster Cannon does not require a Tripod. The Weapon is popular among the Clone Troops of the Galactic Republic because it can be fired from the hip, allowing the wielder to cover a greater fire arc with a single burst. However, the Weapon is inaccurate when the wielder does not take time to Brace it.

If you Brace a Rotary Blaster Cannon before firing it, you can choose to target a 2x4 square area (Instead of the normal 2x2 square area) with your Autofire attack. However, if you do not Brace the Rotary Blaster Cannon, you take a -5 penalty to your attack roll in addition to the normal penalties associated with firing a Weapon in Autofire mode.

The Rotary Blaster Cannon requires a Power Pack to operate. After 20 shots, the Power Pack must be replaced. This Weapon can also be attached to a Power Generator for longer use.
