The Coolest Weapons in ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’

With every new Star Wars movie comes new weapons and that’s a blast for avid Star Wars fans like me. And Solo was filled with intriguing aliens, worlds, clothing styles, and yes, weapons, that made this newest adventure in a galaxy far, far away that much more special. So, on that note, here were the five coolest weapons in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Grapple Gun

Val was only present in Solo for a short while but what I found the most impactful from her involvement in the film were her incredible smuggling skills and this gun helped achieve those skills.

Its range can go farther than 600 meters! Isn’t that amazing? That provides an entirely different look at how tough smugglers and bounty hunters truly are in the galaxy with their various gadgets and specific skills. And that’s why I loved this film. The Clone Wars showed a glimpse of the criminal underworld and this movie only took that look a bit further.

The Ten Coolest Weapons in ‘Star Wars’: The Updated Version

Late last year I wrote a post about the ten coolest weapons in Star Wars and now that The Last Jedi has come out its time for this list to receive an update. Enjoy!

10. Jyn Erso’s Blastech A-180 Blaster

There are many different types of blasters in Star Wars but this blaster really differentiated itself from the rest of the pack because of its versatility and the fact that it can turn into a close-range weapon. I still remember my immense surprise when I saw this blaster become a short baton of sorts. It was very cool. I still haven’t seen any other blasters like it and so that’s why this is one of my favorite weapons.

9. Rey’s Quarterstaff

To live in the desolate junk world of Jakku you have to be resourceful and Rey is every bit of that. I love her quarterstaff because it’s such a crude looking weapon and yet, it’s perfect. The strips of cloth keeping parts of it together, the metal pieces, it’s utterly fascinating and it kind of shines a light on who Rey really is; a survivor, and this weapon speaks that in volumes.

 

8. Chirrut Imwe’s Staff/Lightbow

First of all Chirrut is already one of the coolest characters created in Star Wars and so the fact that he has such an awesome weapon isn’t surprising. The main reason why I love his staff so much is simply because it is such a versatile weapon.

I remember the first time I saw him transform his staff into a crossbow. It was during the skirmish on Eadu. There were all of these Tie fighters flying around chasing Rebel X-Wing pilots and he took his staff, hit a button or something turning it into a crossbow, and then shot down a tie fighter. I was shocked. It was undoubtedly one of Chirrut’s greatest moments and it instantly placed his weapon in my top ten list.

10. Electrostaff

One thing I loved from the prequels were the weapons General Grievous’s Magnaguards used. I’m a fan of staves and so these electrostaves were incredible to me, especially with the fact that they were able to repel attacks from a weapon as powerful as a lightsaber. These are definitely some of my favorite weapons in Star Wars.
