- "Medium-range rifle which fires in three-blast bursts. This sturdy weapon was widely used by the rebellion in the Galactic Civil War."
- — In-game Description
The A280 is a well-balanced and versatile blaster. It fires in three-blast bursts, which make the weapon more accurate, but limits the overall rate of fire of the weapon. While it does not perform as well in close or long range as other blasters, it can still hold its own at any range and can excel in medium range combat. Modifications can be equipped to improve the blaster's performance.
The Rebel Rocket-Jumper wields an improved version of the base A280.
