Background: The EE-3 carbine rifle was a model of blaster carbine manufactured by BlasTech Industries. They were used by the bounty hunters Sugi during the Clone Wars, Boba Fett during the Galactic Civil War, and Q9-0 during the time of the New Republic. In addition to the carbine’s usage by bounty hunters, it was also used by troopers of both the Alliance to Restore the Republic and the Galactic Empire.
It was an optically fitted blaster rifle capable of three-round burst fire at long ranges, but had lower accuracy and stopping power compared to larger rifles.
The EE-4 carbine rifle was the successor to the EE-3; the EE-4 removed the shoulder stock but added a vertical handgrip, as well as having a faster rate of fire, making the EE-4 superior at closer ranges than the EE-3, but at the expense of range.
