Star Wars Battlefront Wiki

"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 a primary weapon in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II available for the Officer class after getting 50 kills with the Officer.


The S-5 is a large and unwieldy pistol, each of its three modifications only making the pistol even larger. Besides its size, the pistol is distinct for its wooden grip and gold rod under the main barrel.


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 very 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. The reduced recoil mod makes the blaster significantly easier to use, as you don't have to compensate for its very high recoil.

  • Like the CR-2, the S-5 made its first appearance in The Phantom Menace being used primarily by the Royal Naboo Security Forces.
  • In Legends, the golden rod under the barrel served as a dart launcher.[1]


Battle of Geonosis Update

  • S-5: Reduced distance before damage fall off starts (20->15 meters).

1.2 Patch

  • All Classes - Fixed an issue on Blaster Rifles and the S-5, weapons that can be toggled with a high zoom level through Dual Zoom, where the scope glint would always appear when zooming. It now only appears when the dual zoom scope is equipped and toggled to its highest magnification level.
