They use rifles and can carry a knife for a couple melee abilities.

Specifically, Agents and the advanced class Operative use blaster rifles. If you go the sniper advanced class you will use sniper rifles, which are different from blaster rifles.

It is important to note as well that you will not be able to use blaster pistols (smugglers and bounty hunters) or blaster cannons (troopers).

Do they use them for combat? or is it only swords though, do operatives use blaster rifles in the same way that hunters from WoW use staves (meaning; are they mainly just for show?)

I played an IA Operative in beta, specced into the Lethality Tree. This is a hybrid ranged/melee spec. Your primary weapon is the blaster rifle, then you move in with the knife. When knife skills are on cool-down, there are some point-blank blaster skills you can use, or step back a little for more blaster attacks. You also have grenades and poison darts, plus several stuns/CCs, to round things out.

Operatives specced into Concealment use knives more, and are primarily a melee class.
Who, me? I'm nobody.
