The FWMB-10K is a Heavy Blaster featured in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II. It is available for the Heavy class.

Overview Edit

Essentially the spiritual successor to the older T-21 and T-21B blasters, albeit in a full-auto format, the FWMB-10K blaster sports a very impressive damage profile and range capacity compared to the other heavy blasters, allowing it to reliably gun down enemy infantry in a matter of seconds at mid range and inflict noticeable damage at longer ranges as well.

This makes the FWMB-10K very dangerous at mid range as its high damage allows it to reliably dispatch most opponents with only a limited amount of hits needed for it to score a kill. The FWMB-10K's good range capacity also grants it the ability the more reliably engage targets at longer ranges as well, in the hands of an accurate player, it can even be used to challenge a sniper, forcing them to duck into cover.

These traits set aside, the FWMB-10K is not without its flaws though, in fact, the FWMB-10K retains many of the downsides that plagued its predecessors; namely, a mediocre cooling capacity and a very slow rate of fire.

This makes it inherently weaker at close range combat as even though it can kill an opponent in just a couple of shots, any missed shots will drastically slow down the weapon's killing speed as follow-up shots come at a steady, yet slow pace, meaning that a faster-firing weapon with a higher cooling capacity will be able to outperform the FWMB-10K in close-quarters shootouts.
