— In-game description

The RT-97C is a heavy blaster featured in Star Wars: Battlefront.


It's unlocked at rank 5 and can be purchased with 1,250 in-game credits. It is more or less a more accurate version of the DLT-19 with slightly higher damage per shot at long range.

Even though the RT-97C has much more recoil than the DLT-19, it compensates for this by having slightly higher damage-per-second, extending its effective range and allowing it to be used at longer ranges than the DLT-19. The RT-97C is also less susceptible to long-range attacks than the DLT-19 as your increased accuracy allows you to retaliate more easily.

In close quarters, the RT-97C is slightly slower at dealing with opponents and cannot sustain fire for as long as the DLT-19, though it retains roughly three-fourths of the DLT-19's close range power. If the player can afford to sacrifice some of their close range power for slightly better long range power, they should have good thoughts about the RT-97C.

The strategy for countering the RT-97C is largely the same as with the DLT-19 (see the respective page) with the main exception being its longer effective range and slightly reduced close range power. It is however still more powerful than it's companion.


In Walker Assault on Skirmish, Imperial Shock Troopers can be seen wielding the RT-97C.

Trivia Edit

  • The RT-97C Heavy Blaster is based on the MG 15, albeit with an added scope and no stock or iron sights.
