- "A hard-hitting hand cannon, operatives in the Naboo Security Forces chose the S-5 for its greater precision and range."
- — In-game Description
The S-5 is the first unlockable blaster for Officers. It is one of the more powerful blasters in the game and has the highest base damage out of all Officer blasters. This comes at the expense of a rather slow rate of fire, meaning its follow-up shots few and far in between, and making it weaker in close-quarters.
The S-5 is best used at medium range to take advantage of the weapons increased range and damage. The dual-zoom modification can be used to reach even further ranges, although the S-5 is not as capable as other weapons, when it comes to engaging enemies at such a long distance. The S-5 can also equip a ion shot mod, which makes it more effective at taking down enemy equipment and vehicles. This comes at the cost of reduced base damage against enemy players and heroes, although it is still relatively powerful even with the reduction.
