"Small and agile blaster with extreme rate of fire often wielded by the Naboo security forces."
— In-game description

The CR-2 is a fully-automatic blaster rifle available as a primary weapon for the SWBFII Class Assault Icon.svg Assault class in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II. It is earned by eliminating 200 enemies with the Assault class.

Design[edit | edit source]

Small and compact, the CR-2 features two grips and a short barrel. The blaster can be configured with a larger night vision scope and an extended stock to help minimize recoil. Its barrel can also be configured with a modification to allow the blaster to shoot ionized bolts.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The CR-2 is a fully automatic blaster with a very fast rate of fire compared to most other weapons for the Assault class, making it effective at close-to-medium range. It has the fastest rate of fire of any blaster. 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 blasters available to the Assault class, the CR-2 is less versatile and much more situational, sacrificing long range accuracy for greater close range power. The CR-2 is ideal for close-quarter style maps, such as Death Star II, Yavin 4, and the later stages of Starkiller Base.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Ion Shot modification for the CR-2 features an iron sight that would serve no practical purpose since the gun already comes with a scope and the shape of the gun would block the iron sights from the user's point-of-view.
  • The CR-2, along with the S-5, first appeared in The Phantom Menance as a weapon wielded by members of the Royal Naboo Security Forces.
  • The CR-2 appears to be visually based on the Calico M960
