'Blastsabers are popular UNO weapons. A weapon that can switch between a vibroblade, a sword and a turbolaser blaster easily. They are a weapon of choice to most, and a cmplex design that has never been replicated. TIFA's most famous and successful weapon.
History[edit | edit source]
Origins[edit | edit source]
Developed initially during the Third Ottzello Galactic War (with development continued by the commercial weapons group TIFA), the first weapon to fully take advantage of turbolaser weaponry as well as the weapon that got TIFA popular, the Blastsaber became an extremely common weapon. The weapon's design came from Henzaltarik, whose father was defeated due to the inability to switch from a sword to a machine gun quick enough.
Henzaltarik resultantly became famous, and created many iteration of this weapon.
Post-commercial usage[edit | edit source]
Since the Unified Nation of Ottzello's society's economy evolved past the commercial state, the Blastsaber weapon became used not only among all soldiers, but among citizens; as all citizens must carry weapons at all times by law, the Blastsaber became the best choice.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
Appearance[edit | edit source]
A sword made of several parts, which can transform into a different shape. The sword is sharp, but mainly relies on energy to become more powerful. It contains a globe, which is a Gyronic container and reactor, near the grip.
Function[edit | edit source]
Used by most, if not all, close combat troopers. It is very effective and convenient in combat to simply switch between the 3 types; turbolaser, phaser, and vibroblade. It is possibly the most common weapon among UNO troopers and citizens.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
There are 3 iterations:
- Light- A simple weapon; cheap and effective, but it's power falls short of the other two
- Heavy- Much more powerful, but expensive
- MG- Unlike the other iterations, can be used as an energy machine gun rather than a blaster
Combat[edit | edit source]
Attacks[edit | edit source]
Very swift hits from a very powerful blade, or a few blasts from the ranged weapon. The ranged weapon is very powerful but isn't as fast as other Taldar-made UNO weapons. The blade is very good in combat, but against larger close combat foes, a larger blade would be a better option.
UNO troopers who use the weapon can perform acrobatic movements, making it a formidable weapon.
Evasion[edit | edit source]
There are no known evasion tactics to this weapon.
Tactics[edit | edit source]
Very good against infantry, but also, with skills, can defeat vehicles.
It is best to perform acrobatic moves using this weapon, as not only will you be hard to hit (especially with Gyronic effects), but you can defeat enemies at a quick pace. However, simpler uses of the weapon are also effective. Being speed with the weapon uses it to it's full potential, but with Gyronic, that is rarely an issue.
