Star Wars Battlefront Wiki

The DL-18 or DL-18 Blaster Pistol is a Blaster Pistol in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront and Star Wars Battlefront II that can be used by the Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire.

Star Wars Battlefront[]

The DL-18 is a Blaster Pistol featured in Star Wars Battlefront. It was added as a free weapon alongside the DLT-19X Targeting Rifle in the Outer Rim Expansion Pack.

The pistol is a semi-automatic weapon with medium range, and a massive cool down, meaning it can fire multiple shots before it overheats. However, while its damage is fairly good, it will require one more shot than the DT-12 to kill an enemy soldier.

The Hutt Contract needed to unlock the weapon (Bounty Hunter I) requires achieving 3 Blaster Pistol Streaks (Get 7 kills with a Blaster Pistol in a round and it will count as a streak) and getting 15 kills with the Scout Pistol.

This weapon made a small appearance in Return of the Jedi when Luke grabbed this blaster from a guard with his force powers. It also appears in the Clone Wars TV show, used by Turk Falso in season one.

The DL-18 is a primary weapon for the Officer class in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II unlocked after getting 50 kills with the Officer in Co-Op.


The DL-18, simply put, is a more damaging SE-44C without its fully automatic fire. However, the Repeating Mode Mod enables it to fire automatically, though its rate of fire is lower than the SE-44C with the Rapid Fire mod.

The Age of Rebellion Update

  • Added.

Battle on Scarif Update

  • Reduced heat per bullet (0.08->0.05).
    • Note: this change was made without changing the weapon's Improved Cooling mod, which had the same effect of reducing the heat per shot from 0.08 to 0.05. As a result, there was no difference between having the Improved Cooling mod equipped or unequipped. This issue was later fixed in the May 28th Patch.

May 28th Patch

  • Fixed an issue where the Improved Cooling mod wouldn't increase how many shots the weapon could fire before overheating.
