Here is an overview of some of the weapons and manufactures you might find in the Crescendo Era.
The three biggest weapons manufacturers in the galaxy are Tendrando Arms, Merr-Sonn, and SoroSuub, with Tendrando Arms taking the lead as the largest of them all. Other notable weapons manufacturers include Charubah Industries (creators of the Gun of Command), Coruschal WeaponWorks (famous slugthrowers), Drearian Defense (produces weapons for Cybot Galactica and Arakyd Industries), Golan Arms, Kelvarex Consolidated Arms (miniaturized weapon systems), LaserHone (vibro weapons), Novaless Soni-Optics (galactic renown optics), Tam & Bak, Yctor Arms (collector and reproduction weapons), and Zix Gunworks (Verpine weapons).
Blasters - the most common weapons in the galaxy. They include pistols, carbines, rifles, cannons and many other variations.
Chemical Weapons - not as common as blasters, chemical weapons are usually utilized by professionals or extremely nefarious type characters. They can take the form of gas grenades, poison darts, snare rifles, carbonite weapons, and sophisticated sensory scramblers.
Disruptors - a specialized form of blaster that causes more damage at the cost of range and the amount of uses. They are capable of disintegrating a target and are often banned in civilized sectors. Disruptors often exist in pistol and rifle variants.
Electrical Weapons - popular in melee combat but also available as projectile weapons, especially plasma weapons. They include plasma disruptors, ARC casters, cortosis/electro/shock staffs, force pikes, energy batans, firespray stun rifles, EMP rifles, magnapulse rifles, electrorays, electroshock nets, energy bolas, neuronic/shock whips, and guns of command.
Incendinary Weapons - basically flamethrowers, and as such, have the typical limitations and advantages. Most are used by specialists or beings who carry a wide array of weapons on hand. They include flame rifles, flame projectors, and flame carbines.
Ion Weapons - specifically designed to be used against droids, ion weapons cause massive damage to electrical systems, but minimal damage to organics. Most ion weapons will cause little more than a stinging effect for organics. Ion weapons are also extremely effective against shields. Popular ion weapons include concussion rifles, ion blasters, carbines, and pistols.
Sonic Weapons - popular among some species, sonic weapons can be very deadly, causing a wave like projectile force that can instantly kill a target by rupturing their internal organs. They include blasters, rifles, carbines, and disruptors.
Yuuzhan Vong Weapons - available through Xana Exotic Weapons, Yuuzhan Vong weapons have found a niche clientele. Though most beings are unable to properly weld an amphistaff due to the complicated bonding rituals, other Yuuzhan Vong weapons are quite usable. They include coufees, razor/thud/snap/blast/spy bugs, blorash jelly, firejelly, chitin carbines, magma launchers, spore darts, magma pebbles, plasma eels, senalaks, and singularity mines. And thanks to Xana, several Yuuzhan Vong weapons have been bio engineered for non-Yuuzhan Vong.
Specific Manufacturers and Models:
After buying out Blastech, Tendrando Arms soared to forefront as the galaxy’s largest weapons manufacture. They produce nearly 75% of the galaxies weapons, giving them a huge edge over their competitors. With their massive production facilities and extensive R&D development, Tendrando Arms makes some of the best and affordable weapons in the galaxy. They also have several huge contracts with the Galactic Alliance Armed Forces, and an extensive line of military grade weapons. Anywhere outside the Unknown Regions, you are sure to find a Tendrando blaster not far away.
TV-76 Light Blaster Pistol
Description: One of Tendrando's most popular models in their Civilian line. Packs 31 shots in an accurate and affordable pistol.
TM-32 Medium Blaster Pistol
Description: The TM-32 is part of Tendrando's Military line and is not available to the civilian market. It packs three times the punch of the TV-76 without any decrease in the amount of shots. On the black market they cost nearly four times as much as the TV-76.
TM-52 Light Repeating Blaster Pistol
Description: The TM-52 packs the power of the TV-76 but with the added bonus of a repeater. Able to fire in fully automatic and burst mode, it holds 100 shots. Not available to the civilian market.
TG-12 Trishot Blaster Pistol
Description: Trishot blasters shoot three blaster bolts simultaneously instead of the normal single bolt. Due to the increase kick, trishots are not as accurate as normal blasters but the additional damage can be worth the trade off. The TG-12 packs 20 three-bolt shots.
TL-88 Heavy Ion Blaster Pistol
Description: Like all ion weapons, the TL-88 is lethal to droids and nonlethal to organics. The TL-88 packs enough punch to permanently fry unprotected electrical components with a single shot. On an organic target, it has enough energy to temporarily stun with a slightly painful electrical jolt, typically with no permanent damage, however it is not intended to be used as a stun device and could be lethal under certain circumstances. The TL-88 has 30 shots.
TX-90 Disruptor Pistol
Description: Disruptor pistols are illegal on almost every Core planet and most civilized systems. That said, the TX-90 is still a highly sought after weapon. Sales are generally restricted to military and security agencies, though with the right permits and taxes they can be purchased by civilians. The TX-90 packs only 15 shots on full power, but each of those shots can fully disintegrate a target.
TM-54 Heavy Repeating Blaster Pistol
Description: Another military only model, the TM-54 is the bigger cousin of the TM-53. It packs nearly three times as much power per bolt with auto and burst capability and a total of 50 shots.
Description: TM-55 is not as powerful as the TM-54, but packs more firepower with a total of 150 shots. It is not available to the civilian market.
TV-37 Medium Blaster Rifle
Description: With more range, more power, and more shots than the TV-76, the TV-37 is another popular blaster rifle on the civilian market. It typically holds 100 shots but aftermarket modifications can effect the capacity, as well as the power.
TG-22 Trishot Blaster Rifle
Description: The TG-22 has greater range than the TG-12 and twice the number of shots. External power packs, worn by the user and hooked up via an external power line, can increase the total shot capacity.
TM-196 Accelerated Charged Particle (ACP) Carbine
Description: The ACP carbine uses accelerated charge particles rather than the energized particle beams of a typical blaster. ACP weapons are generally more effective against shields, though they do better against organics than droids. Each time they fire they use a cartridge which consists of a couple dozen particle charges. Thus each shot is like a tightly grouped shotgun blast. The TM-196 has 50 shots.
TX-30 Disruptor Rifle
Description: The TX-30 is very popular weapon among well equipped bounty hunters and criminals. With the range of blaster rifle, and 40 highly lethal shots that can fully disintegrate a target, it's a force to be reckoned with.
TL-12 Ion Blaster Rifle
Description: The TL-12 has three times the range of the TL-88 and 90 shots. The power factor between the two is the same, though the TL-12 has adjustable power settings making it more effective against protected electrical systems or high powered personal shields. Note that increasing the power settings will decrease the amount of shots.
TV-44 Firespray Beam Rifle
Description: The Firespray Beam rifle is different from normal blaster rifles in that it projects a wide beam instead of a narrow blaster bolt, thus making it useful against multiple targets. The beam itself is adjustable to the firer's specifications. The TV-44 holds around 50 shots, depending on the width of the beam.
TM-6 Projectile Launcher
Description: The TM-6 is a multiple purpose projectile launcher capable of firing a multitude of munitions. Typical projectiles include explosive, flash-bangs, and gas rounds. Unlike Tendrando's other military models, the TM-6 is available to the civilian market, but the more lethal ammunition is not. Typically the TM-6 can hold 12 shots.
TM-17 Blast Cannon
Description: The TM-17 blast cannon fires seven blaster bolts at once and is an extremely effective close range weapon. The blast patterned can be tightened for longer range shots, but its range is significantly less than a blaster rifle and is more on par with a blaster pistol. It holds 30 shots.
TV-90 Sniper Rifle
Description: The TV-90 is a long range blaster rifle that comes equipped with a Novaless Soni-Optic Designated Marksman scope. Capable of shooting targets a mile away, the TV-90 is a marksman's best friend. It holds 50 shots.
TM-200 Heavy Concussion Rifle
Description: The TM-200 concussion rifle fires a compressed capsule of ionized air that creates a lethal shockwave on impact. Not only is the TM-200 a long range weapon, but it is also impossible to block with a lightsaber and can hit multiple targets. The TM-200 is not available to the civilian market without special permits and taxes.
TM-9000 'Long Shot' Sniper Rifle
Description: The TM-9000 is one of the top-of-the-line long range sniper rifles in the galaxy. With advanced beam compression and ionization systems, the TM-9000 has a greater ranger than other sniper rifles and can actually engage low flying air craft. It also has an adjustable output which can allow it to engage heavily armored targets or switch to rapid low-power fire. However, the TM-9000 has a downside: it's heavy, bulky, and expensive.
TM-800 Heavy Carbonite Rifle
Description: The TM-800 fires a short stream of liquid carbonite that solidifies rapidly on contact. The solidification is only temporary and will eventually thaw out after a few minutes without any permanent effects to the target. However, while frozen, targets are extremely fragile and can easily be shattered. Carbonite rifles are also very limited in range. The TM-800 has only 30 shots.

Corondexx once specialized in both pulse rifles and snare guns but due to competition and escalating costs, they were forced to downsize and focus entirely on their snare rifles. The good news is that Corondexx makes some of the finest snare rifles on the market and has exclusive contracts with the Bounty Hunters Guild and numerous security agencies.
VES-910 Snare Pistol
Description: The VES-910 fires a burst of shockstun mist to paralyze the target, then immediately fires a liquid spraynet which hardens with exposure to air, thus fully incapacitating a target. Maximum effective range is 30 meters.
VES-950 Snare Rifle
Description: The VES-950 fires a burst of shockstun mist to paralyze the target, then immediately fires a liquid spraynet which hardens with exposure to air, thus fully incapacitating a target. Maximum effective range is 187 meters.
VES-970 Snare Rifle
Description: The VES-970 fires a burst of shockstun mist to paralyze the target, then immediately fires a liquid spraynet which hardens with exposure to air, thus fully incapacitating a target. Maximum effective range is 250 meters.
Taim & Bak
Primarily a starship weapons manufacturer, Taim & Bak still offers a modest line of quality blasters, mostly blaster pistols. They have found some success in marketing hunting and everyday carry blasters. Their everyday carry line is rather popular in the Core.
EC-2 Light Blaster Pistol
Description: The EC-2 'Everyday Carry' light blaster pistol has about the same power and accuracy as Tendrando's TV-76 but with a few more shots (40 shots), and a slightly higher price tag.
EC-9 Blaster Pistol
Description: The EC-9 packs more punch than the EC-2 and also costs a little more.
ED-18 Sporting Blaster Pistol
Description: The ED-18 'Elite Duty' packs the punch of the EC-9 but with better range an accuracy. The ED-18 also costs about twice as much as the EC-9.
HM-88 Heavy Blaster Pistol
Description: The HM-88 "Hunter Magnum" was designed for big game hunters who needed an emergency gun. The HM-88 is one of the most powerful blaster pistols on the market when adjusted to full power. Ten shots on full power, 25 shots on medium. No stun setting.
Fallen upon hard times, Czerka has only narrowly escaped bankruptcy and still faces several Senate investigations into over a dozen alleged counts of illegal practices. In the meantime their product line has fallen by the wayside and is often offered at bargain prices.
Czerka 707 Light Blaster Pistol
Description: The Czerka 707 is nothing fancy. It is almost on par with other light blasters and usually sells for much less. As such, it's very popular among individuals with tight or nonexistent budgets.
Czerka 708 Medium Blaster Pistol
Description: The 708 packs more punch than the 707. Despite the higher cost of the 708, it is still cheaper than other medium blasters on the market and enjoys large popularity.
Charubah is the largest weapons manufacture in the Hapes Consortium and has exclusive contracts with the Hapan Navy. Unfortunately Charubah Industries does not currently export any of their weapons outside of the Consortium.
VL Series Model-8 Disruptor Pistol
Description: Available only to members of the Hapan Navy, military, or security forces, the Model-8 is fully capable of disintegrating targets with one shot. It holds 10 shots.

VL Series Model 1 Heavy Blaster
Description: The Model 1 is an older blaster that has stood the test of time with only minor improvements and few cosmetic changes. It packs nearly four times the punch of the Model-5 with a whopping 25 shots. It is available to all Hapan Citizens and it is also very popular among pirates even outside the Consortium. The Model 1 is often seen as a status symbol among pirates outside of Hapes due to the guns scarcity in the greater galaxy.
VL Series Model 3 Deluxe Holdout Blaster
Description: The Model 3 is a classic that is very popular in all circles of Hapan society. Unlike most holdout blaster that hold only 3 shots, the Model 3 adds a little more size to allow for 15 shots as well as a stun setting. The Model 3 is very compact and can often be hidden in a boot or small purse.
Zix Gunworks is the primary producer of Verpine weapons for the galaxy at large. A specialized off-shoot colony, they produce very high quality weapons that tend to be in the higher price range of the market. Verpine weapons are generally not as common place as other weapons and tend to find themselves in the hands of specialists or elite operatives.
Model-VI Blaster Pistol
Description: The Model-VI (vee-eye) is a slightly higher end blaster pistol that offers just a little more range, accuracy, and power to give it bragging rights over other blasters. It holds 30 shots.
Model-VXV Verpine Shatter Gun Pistol
Description: The VXV (vee-ex-vee) uses small magnetic coils to propel metallic projectiles at lethal velocities. Though its range is comparable to standard blaster pistols, the VXV is silent and hard to deflect with a lightsaber. It is a favored tool among assassins.
Model-LVI Repeating Blaster Pistol
Description: The Model LVI (el-vee-eye), like the VI, is a higher end repeating blaster. Due to its open hand grip, it is popular among species whose hands differ from humans, especially species with extra large digits.
Killik Burnball Carbine Model 4
Description: With a special contract with the Killik Hive, the Verpine produce a carbine that shoots Killik burnballs, small wax spheres that contain a flammable liquid, hanpat, that combusts on exposure to air. Each burnball shatters when it hits its target. The effective range of the burnball carbine makes it an extremely deadly incendiary weapon. It holds 70 burnballs.
Model-XXV Verpine Shatter Gun
Description: The XXV (ex-ex-vee) uses magnetic coils to propel metallic projectiles at lethal velocities. Like all shatter guns it is silent and hard to deflect with a lightsaber. That large bore adjustable barrel and chamber also allow the weapons to shoot improvised ammunition. With high end optics, the XXV is a common choice among military snipers.
Model-MXI Verpine Sniper Rifle
Description: The MXI (em-ex-eye) is a high end blaster rifle ideal for sniper applications. It is capable of engaging targets beyond a mile and incorporates stabilization mechanisms to reduce shooter error. Consequently, the MXI is very expensive.

Merr-Sonn is the second largest weapons manufacturer in the galaxy. As a company, they focus mainly on heavy weapons, especially for starships, however they also have a small line of personal weapons that enjoy large scale production. Affordable and effective, Merr-Sonn weapons are found throughout the galaxy.
BC432 Ion Blaster Pistol
Description: The BC432 is not as powerful as the Tendrando Arms TL-88, however, it does hold 60 shots and the chance for unintentional damage to organic targets is drastically reduced.
BC434 Heavy Blaster Pistol
Description: The BC434 is on par with the Tendrando TM-54 but without being a repeater. It is rather popular among mercenaries and military style security forces.
BC433 Concussion Pistol
Description: The BC433 fires a compressed capsule of ionized air that creates a lethal shockwave on impact. It's range is on par with a typical blaster pistol, but it has the advantage of being impossible to block with a lightsaber and can hit multiple targets.
SG-50m Concussion Rifle
Description: The SG-50m is like the Tendrando Arms TM-200 but much more compact. It is very popular with Trandoshans and mercenaries. Due to its compact size, it is very effective in confined environments like ships and buildings.
CR-7 Flame Rifle
Description: Short ranged and with a limited supply of fuel, the CR-7 is still a well used weapon due to the devastating effectiveness of a flamethrower in confined spaces. The CR-7 is lightweight and generally is used in bursts with an effective range of almost 100 meters.
Model G16 Flechette Shotgun
Description: The G16 fires dozens of razor sharp flechettes that can cause significant damage to unarmored targets. It is very effective in confined areas against multiple targets.
Model O6 Sniper Rifle
Description: The O6 (or 'Odd Six') is a popular blaster rifle utilized by many police and military snipers. It's effective range is well beyond a mile.
PLX-V Concussion Missile Launcher
Description: The PLX-V or 'Plex Five' fires a single mini concussion missile. It is capable of firing various missiles designed for anti-air, anti-armor, or as bunker busters. Maximum range is five kilometers.
Mark X ‘Ten’ Heavy Tri-Barrel Autoblaster
Description: The Mark Ten houses three heavy blaster rifle barrels capable of firing in full auto fire for sustained periods. Though heavy and cumbersome, it is a highly destructive weapon and is utilized by heavy weapons squads. The Mark Ten is also available to the general market.
SoroSuub is the third largest weapons manufacturer in the galaxy, however, in order to compete with its two competitors, Merr-Sonn and Tendrando Arms, they focused all of their attention and R&D efforts on pistols and vehicular weaponry. The result is that SoroSuub currently makes some of the finest blaster and ion pistols in the galaxy at prices well below their competitors.
RX-84 Blaster Pistol
Description: An older model but still widely used. One innovation that has kept SoroSuub at the top of the market in blaster pistols is their dual over/under barrels which allows for either dual fire or alternating fire (which greatly reduces heat and increases rate of fire). Holds 40 shots.
RX-85 Blaster Pistol
Description: A newer reincarnation of the 84, the 85 has increased heat dissipation, rate of fire, and a very slight edge in accuracy and power. Holds 50 shots. It's worth noting that the 85 cost twice as much as the 84.
RX-86 Heavy Blaster Pistol
Description: The 86 packs twice the punch of the 85 without adding much bulk, however it only holds 40 shots.
RX-32 Ion Blaster Pistol
Description: The RX-32 was designed to minimize any lethal threat to organics, and unlike some ion blasters, the 32 will not cause any permanent damage with shots to the head. It is moderately useful against protected electrical systems and also holds 60 shots.
RX-37 Ion Blaster Pistol
Description: The RX-37 is the latest model in the RX-30 line and has better range and effectiveness than the 32. It is fairly effective against protected electrical systems.
RX-81 Heavy Ion Blaster
Description: The RX-81 is a heavier version of the RX-30 line, however, due to the increase in power, it is not as safe against organics. However, it is highly effective against protected electrical systems and can fry the circuits of top-of-the-line Hunter-Killer droids with just a couple shots. The RX-81 holds 50 shots and also sports the SoroSuub dual barrel design.

Xana Exotic Arms
Xana Exotic Arms was a weapons manufacturer that specialized in unusual designs. However, after an aggressive and determine business venture, they managed to form an agreement with the Yuuzhan Vong colonies in order to design and manufacture exportable versions of their weaponry. As such, Xana is the only weapons company that legally sells Yuuzhan Vong weaponry, and they are the only company that offers ‘user friendly’ Yuuzhan Vong weapons designed for non-Yuuzhan Vong.
Enooh’ta - Spore Dart Launcher
Description: The Enooh'ta shoots a long, slender creature with a pointy needle-like nose called an enook. The enooks can be bred with a natural immunity to several types of poison and nerve agents which it can subsequently be fed, thus acting like a normal poison filled dart. Yet unlike a dart, the enook can hone in on its target and correct for shooter error. Sine the enook is a pest like predator that typically feeds on blood, it will naturally seek out weak points on its target. Furthermore the Enooh'ta uses advance Yuuzhan Vong biot science to flash fuse the appearance of the target into the enook's weak mind, thus programming it to seek only its target.
Kesar Shi – Vibro Blade
Description: The Kesar Shi is a biot similar to the amphistaff in that part of the biot is thinned to a razor's edge. The kesar, however, is held in a coral cage, thus acting as a barrier between the wearer and the kesar. Also the kesar vibrates when engaged, effectively making it a very powerful vibro blade, one capable of cutting through armor.
Nutaq Fal Sa - Sparkbee Launcher aka Thud Bug Launcher
Description: The Nutaq Fal Sa is a sparkbee launcher and can shoot any of the various breeds of sparkbees. The Nutaq Fal Sa is capable of shooting both full sized (it can hold ten) and miniature bred sparkbees (it can hold 100).
Rogk Nang - Firejelly Sprayer
Description: Unlike most Yuuzhan Vong biots, the Rogk Nang is a complicated fusion of several biots along a coral structure. As a whole, the Rogk Nang spews firejelly in either streams or bursts. It can be fed suitable organic material in order to replenish its supply of firejelly.
Lar Ong - Chitin Carbine
Description: After heavy manipulations by skilled Yuuzhan Vong shapers, the Ong was reshaped into a biot that could shoot small flechettes of chitin. The 'Chitin Carbine' is capable of fully automatic fire and can shoot 500 projectiles on one feeding. The chitin flechettes are small, but are prone to causing rapid infection. Since the chitin flechettes are designed with the intention of causing infection, the Lar Ong is illegal in a lot of civilized sectors.
Description: The senalak'kai is an offshoot of the senalak. Both biots shoot out a thorned cord that will detain or kill its target. The senalak'kai is a bit longer, roughly four meters in length, and can be used to either entangle or kill. The cord is withdrawn by manipulating the senalak'kai.
Moureal - Magma Pebble Rifle
Description: The moureal is a biot bred to shoot tiny pieces of red hot magma. The biot itself feeds on mineral rich rock which it heats to super high levels in its stomach in order to break down the nutrients it needs to survive. The left over pieces are broken down into small pebbles and can then be fired at high speeds thus acting as a rifle. Typically the moureal generates several hundred pebbles per feeding.
Moskyal - Plasma Eel Cannon
Description: The Moskyal is more of a construct than a biot. Rather than launching a plama eel, it holds one in stasis, nurturing the eel and harnessing its plasma. The plasma can then be ejected out of the weapon in deadly plasma bolts, much like a plama rifle but through an entirely different process. A plasma eel can generally produce 50-60 shots before it needs to rest. Overuse of the weapon can kill the plasma eel inside.
Ammut - Magma Launcher
Description: The ammut is similar to the magma pebble launcher but fires a bigger projectile, roughly the size of a human fist. It can usually fire 5-10 shots which grow increasing smaller before it needs to be fed.
Khanam Kar - Coral Blaster
Description: The khanam kar is a biot that spews small pieces of coral. Unlike the chitin carbine, its projectiles are not prone to infection but it does have better penetration capabilities. It can generally hold 80 shots on one feeding. The khanam kar is roughly the size of oversized blaster pistol.
Menaht Zin - Singularity Cannon
Description: The menaht zin is a biot that spews a miniaturized breed of dovin basal. Once launched, the dovin basal will generate a black hole singularity fields that will kill any living thing that steps within its radius. The dovin basals are short lived once they activate. Menaht zin are highly illegal in most sectors. Some systems will award you with an automatic death sentence for the mere possession of a menaht zin. Each launcher holds five dovin basals and can generate more after feeding.
Khanam Kar’za Heavy Coral Blaster
Description: The khanam kar'za is simply a heavier version of the khanam kar. It holds twice as much ammunition and has greater range and accuracy.
Charendohl Exports, Limited
Charendohl Exports is a small sized weapons corporation that specializes in the export of rare or unusual weapons from remote planets.
Nkik 'Dragon Slayer' ARC Caster Ion Rifle
Description: Designed by an eccentric Jawa weapon craftsman, the Nkik Dragon slayer combines the effects of an ARC caster with those of high powered ion rifle. It is rumored that the weapon can take down an adult Krayt dragon. Each Dragon Slayer is custom made and available through Charendohl Exports for a hefty price, however, they are also one of a kind pieces of art.
Nagai ‘Little Sesen’ Ion Disruptor Pistol
Description: The Little Sessen is a widely known weapon in Firefist and was supposedly designed by a Nagai master craftsman. The pistol is unlike many disruptors in that it uses the technology behind ion blasters to achieve the same devastating effect. It's highly effective on both droids and organics with deadly results. The Little Sesen is a prized object in the Firefist satellite galaxy, where each is hand made my the finest weaponsmiths. Charendohl regularly purchases the small amount of available pistols and then resells them in the larger markets for a higher price, thus earning the small time weaponsmiths a lucrative return.
Herglic House Kudra Sonic Disruptor Pistol
Description: This weapon was designed by a Herglic weaponsmith in the powerful House Kudra. An extremely powerful sonic pistol, the House Kudra sonic disruptor is capable of disintegrating its target into molecular ash. Although disruptors are generally illegal in most civilized sectors, collectors have found a loophole that allows the purchase of this weapon as a collectors piece, though it does require a special permit and tax. As part of Charendohl Exports' deal, a portion of all sales go to House Kudra.
Hapan Gun of Command
Description: Although initially designed and produced by Charubah Industries, Charendohl picked up the the weapon after it fell out of production. Furthermore, Charendohl enlisted the help of some Arkanian scientist to tweak the weapon's effectiveness. Due to the extremely high price tag on each the new Guns of Command, it is not widely known what the new weapon is capable of. Rumor has it that the new guns can affect a human for about an hour, making them highly receptive to the commands of the person who fires the gun, even suicidal commands. Irregardless, the Hapan Gun of Command is generally illegal, even in the Hapes Consortium, which is why it went out of production. However, it is without a doubt the pinnacle piece to any weapon collector's collection.
Headquartered in the Parmic Sector, Drever Corp is renowned for staying on the bleeding edge of weapons research, especially in the areas of plasma and magnetic technologies. They are a smaller sized weapons manufacturer and do not produce anywhere near the same amount as the big companies. As a result, their weapons are highly sought after and often demand a significant wad of credits.
Description: The Drever plasma disruptor is a highly lethal weapon with a 1000 meter range and 150 shots per charge. Each shot is fully capable of disintegrating either organic or inorganic matter. However, the cost per unit is on par with a small luxury star yacht. Needless to say it's illegal in most star systems.
Description: Generating a concentrated pule of magnetic-ionized energy differing from a standard blaster, the magnapulse rifle has a slight range advantage and is a lot quieter, though not silent. It is also capable of rapid fire. Each charge has 300 shots. The magnapulse rifle is a highly sought after weapon among elite military units who seldom get the rifles due to the high price tag.
Description: The Drever plasma thrower is like a flame thrower that spews super heated plasma. Plasma will generally eat through armor, unlike a flamethrower, and is much harder to extinguish. Range is 50-80 meters with almost two minutes worth of fuel.
Description: The plasma rifle is a toned down version of the plasma disruptor. With greater range and higher shot capacity, it is still a very lethal weapon. It is also generally more effective than a standard blaster rifle, but it is also more dangerous due to splash effect at close ranges. Each charge has 400 shots.

Bought out by the Baragwin Weapons Guild, Drearian Defense (once known as Drearian Defense Conglomerate) is a high quality weapons manufacturer. Unable to compete with the production capabilities of massive manufacturers like Tendrando Arms, Merr-Sonn, and Sorusuub, Drearian mainly supplies weapons to the Mid and Outer Rim markets where trade costs are significantly lower. Their weapons have gained a reputation of being both durable and dependable, though at a slightly higher price tag.
OX-500 series Concussion Rifle Model K
Description: Firing compressed capsules of ionized air that create lethal shockwaves, the OX-500 doesn't differ much from other concussion rifles. It's light, tough, and effective.
OX-400 series Heavy Blaster Rifle Model C
Description: The OX-400 is hefty, but packs a big punch and has 300 shots. A favorite among Outer Rim mercenaries.
OX-600 series Disruptor Rifle Model S
Description: For all the lawless planets on the Rim, there is the OX-600. Each shot is capable of full disintegration. It holds no less than 150 shots. As expected, the closer to the Core you are, the more illegal this weapon is.
OX-200 series Heavy Concussion Rifle Model F
Description: On par with the Tendrando TM-200, the only real difference between these two weapons is availability and where you buy them. Towards the Core, the TM-200 is cheaper, towards the Rim, the OX-200 is cheaper.
OX-300 series Heavy Auto Blaster Model G
Description: The OX-300 has a little weight to it thanks to oversized cooling systems, but as a bonus, it has a nice sustained fire rate with overheating issues. Holds 500 rounds and is capable of fully auto or burst fire. No stun settings.
OX-400 series Heavy Sniper Rifle Model E
