Sidearm blaster pistol is the generic term for blaster pistols that have a high ammunition efficiency rating. Although the shots that it fires are as powerful as those of other blasters, the blaster’s slow recharge rate enforces conservation of ammunition, which can be advantageous in a prolonged firefight or when the wielder finds himself behind enemy lines without access to additional power packs.
A sidearm blaster pistol requires a power pack to operate. If you use a sidearm blaster pistol with the Rapid Shot feat or any feat that has Rapid Shot feat as a prerequisite, you must spend a swift action to reset the weapon’s trigger before it can be fired again. This feature and the special energy-trickle technology allow the power pack to last for 250 shots.
A sidearm blaster pistol has 0 upgrade slot (see Scum and Villainy, page 37).
