- "Small and agile blaster with extreme rate of fire often wielded by the Naboo security forces."
- — In-game Description
Small and agile, it had an extreme rate of fire. It could be configured with night vision scopes and an extended stock for reduced recoil. It could also be configured to shoot ionized bolts.
The CR-2 is a fully automatic blaster with a very fast rate of fire compared to most other Assault-class weapons, making it effective at close-to-medium range. As a downside, however, the CR-2 suffers from very rapid damage fall off, causing it to quickly lose its effectiveness at longer ranges.
Overall, the CR-2 is well-suited for close-range shootouts and indoor fighting but becomes much weaker in outdoor areas. Compared to the default assault-class blasters, the CR-2 is less versatile and is much more situational instead, sacrificing long range accuracy for greater close range power. The CR-2 is ideal for close-quarter style maps, such as the Death Star, Yavin IV, and the later stages of Starkiller Base.
