The lightsaber is obviously the emblematic weapon of universe Star Wars. As we saw in a previous article, there are several kinds of lightsabers, and a last one has just seen the light of day in the new works concerning the High Republic. We now invite you to discover not the most famous lightsabers of our fetish saga, but 10 weapons that, on paper, are even more powerful than the lightsaber.
# 10 the tusken projectile rifle
Also called “slug launcher“, the Projectile Rifle is surprisingly useful against lightsabers, because when a bullet hits the saber, it melts instead of being deflected. These molten fragments then continue their trajectory towards the face or hands of the lightsaber user, and can cause serious damage.
# 9 beskar’s spear
Beskar steel is one of the few things within the galaxy that can withstand lightsabers. These are precious Mandalorian metals that were used for their armor and some of their weapons. As indicated The Mandalorian, even a simple weapon like a spear, but made from Beskar, can counter a lightsaber. Proof, This Djarin brandished the Beskar spear against Moff Gideon who had the black saber.
# 8 the electric baton
Of course, the Mandalorians aren’t the only ones to have developed anti-Jedi technology. The Magna Garde IG-100 which served as bodyguards at General Grievous especially against the Jedi have for example electric batons (not to be confused with electrolance). It is a melee combat weapon composed of a stick at the end of which is a cell producing electromagnetic pulses. Variants even include batons and other forms of weapons. Darth Vader himself has already succeeded in putting unable to harm a Jedi with an electric weapon.
#7 le blaster
We know it, the strength of lightsabers is such that they are devilishly effective against blaster fire. It all depends on the type of blaster we’re talking about. Some of them are bigger and more explosive. The shots from the blasters of spaceships, for example, are probably too much for the Jedi to handle.
# 6 the whistling birds
Just like the Slugthrowers, the whistling birds (also known as “Hissing Birds”) fire solid projectiles at a target and these cannot be deflected. Straight out of the imagination of the Mandalorians, they take the form of small Deadly homing darts made from pure Beskar. Since many darts can be fired in a short period of time, this weapon is particularly functional, and lightsabers can’t do much against them. The Jedi can of course try to avoid them, but given their number, the task is not easy. The major drawback of this weapon is the scarcity of ammunition, much too precious.
# 5 the Mandalorian rocket launcher
Here is another Mandalorian weapon that does damage! The mini MM9 concussion rocket launcher is a mini rocket launcher designed by Kelvarek Consolidated Arms, and worn by Boba Fett on his gauntlets. This weapon is rechargeable and does a lot of damage. As for its effectiveness against lightsabers? Good luck deflecting the rockets in question! They will explode on impact and maim or kill the target. Force users can, however, try to stop the rocket in flight.
# 4 the flamethrower
Flamethrowers are weapons used in many armies, whether by the Flame troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic, or by Flame troopers of the Galactic Empire. These weapons are also used by certain criminals such as Mandalorians or bounty hunters such as Jango Fett and Cad Bane.
# 3 sonic loads
A sonic charge is a powerful space bomb capable inflict heavy damage. She is indeed capable of unleashing a devastating and explosive shock wave. Particularly effective when it comes to disintegrating an asteroid field !
# 2 the lower sniper rifle
The Amban sniper rifle, also known as “Pulse Rifle”, is a type of sniper rifle that is not widely used in the galaxy. Its shape is atypical, and makes this weapon a recognizable rifle among a thousand. The bounty hunter Din Djarin had one that could support the load of disintegrating cartridges, having the effect of simply disintegrating the target.
# 1 strength
It was high time to talk the power of the Force : what a weapon! The power of the Force can be used by individuals sensitive to it thanks to midi-chlorians, as you know. The use of force grants a number of powers, such as the ability to sense an impending attack, to push and lift objects, to influence the thoughts of others, and even to see the future, or to make his conscience last after death.
