The Disruptor Rifle, sometimes called Ion Disruptor, is a weapon in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront and Star Wars Battlefront II. It a weapon that can be picked up via Power Ups in Battlefront and as an objective in Battlefront II.
Star Wars Battlefront[edit | edit source]
It is one of the few weapons in the game that is only a power up. Like most of the other weapons, this rifle never appeared in the Original Trilogy.
To use the weapon, players must charge it up until the dashes showing the power form into a circle. Once the weapon's fire button is released, the rifle releases a condensed sphere of ion energy that kills enemy players on impact. It also destroys turrets and droids, as well as damaging Vehicles.
This weapon's accuracy is determined on whether or not the player is aiming down their sights. If fired from the hip, it will have a high chance of going past the target and instead hitting part of the map. If aimed down the sights however, the sphere will always go into the direction it's aimed at.
Star Wars Battlefront II[edit | edit source]
The Disruptor Rifle also makes an appearance in the Galactic Assault mode of the 2017 installment to the Battlefront series. It is used as an objective to destroy the CIS MTT from reaching the Royal Palace in the city of Theed on Naboo, as well as on Kashyyyk. They are also used by the Resistance to damage AT-M6's on Crait.
In order to fire the Ion Disruptor, the player must be in range of the target, and zoom in. The weapon needs to lock on, which will happen faster if you're closer to the target. While you have the disruptor, everyone in the game can see where you are, as well as when you are preparing to fire. If you hit the target with the disruptor, it will deal damage as well as making the target vulnerable to normal weapon fire for a short time.
It is possible for the disruptor shot to be blocked if someone walks in front of you when you fire.
