This capable side-arm is at the top of Aratech's ion blaster line. It is designed for multi-purpose use, though obviously is best against droids.
While ion weapons are generally less damaging against organic opponents, they are powerful against droids. Also, ion damage can penetrate some defenses that will stop typical blaster fire. Ion weapons cannot utilize most power pack upgrades.
