Are guns better than blasters?
The blaster bolts do travel significantly slower than the supersonic speeds achieved by bullets. However, they are more effective. Bullets can be deflected by armour. Blaster bolts melt through the armour.
Can a Jedi stop a bullet?
Edit: ^they can’t block bullets(slugs) with a lightsaber! Since the slugs are physical projectiles, they’d be easier for Jedi to stop using the Force.
Can lightsabers block real bullets?
Yes. In the lore, lightsabers and blaster bolts aren’t beams of light either. The lightsaber is a beam of plasma contained within a magnetic field; it has mass, just like a bullet. Depending on the lightsaber and the bulelt in question, the magnetic field might be enough to stop it all on its own.
Did Jedi ever use blasters?
A true Jedi relies only on his skill with the powerful ligthsaber. Not on other uncivilized weapons, as they view them. They dont carry around grenades or blasters or rocket launchers. They only use them in EXTREME situations where a lightsaber is not readily available.
Why don’t they use normal guns in Star Wars?
Bullets tend to ricochet, making them very dangerous within a spacecraft where they could hit an unintended (and possibly vital) piece of equipment. Guns also can’t be used to breach the hull of a spaceship or stun a target, making the blaster more versatile.
Does the Mandalorian use a cycler rifle?
Considering a slug from one of these rifles can destroy a podracer, that’s no small amount of kick. The only real difference is the Mandalorian’s version has the two prongs from the Amban blaster attached to the end of the barrel. But it’s definitely a Cycler rifle.
Is a plasma blaster possible?
Plasmas are common in space but they rarely exist naturally on Earth. However, it is possible to produce them in laboratories. A common misconception about blasters is that they are laser weapons. But within the Star Wars canon, people realised that this wouldn’t make sense.
Is a Star Wars blaster possible?
The guns in Star Wars actually fire bursts of plasma, not lasers. And no, we’re nowhere near being able to produce a weapon like the kind you see in Star Wars. The problem is one of energy density. A plasma weapon would need a lot of power to operate.
