I've read all the books. I distinctly remember him getting punked by Lando Calrissian once as well. Anybody that let that happen.... yeah.

Boba Fett was a mandalorian making a living as a bounty hunter. There are tons of other bounty hunters in the galaxy not being a mandalorian nor wearing mandalorian armor. Calo Nord used dual blaster pistols while Boba Fett used and EE3 carbine rifle "http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/EE-3_carbine_rifle". Leave the class as it is and stop making parallels between bounty hunter class and Boba Fett.

It was a carbine, not a sawed-off rifle (whatever that is)

Boba Fett died like a drunken punk, I still don't know why everyone idolizes him and his poor-dicision-making "father" so much
I agree it was a carbine but a sawed of rifle is when you saw some of it off like a sawed off shotgun.

People seem to miss the crux of TOR from BW point of view. You, the player, are not playing a customised character or an avatar of what you would like to be within the SW universe. e.g. SWG. You are playing 'The' Bounty Hunter, Smuggler, Jedi Knight etc etc etc within the TOR universe.
BULL.

I'm tailoring my character to be the closest thing to Boba Fett, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Obi Wan, etc that I can get.

They offer hairstyle options from 1976 but my bounty hunter can't use a blaster rifle?? It makes NO sense.

Meanwhile, the agent, aka the totally not on anybody's wishlist James Bond class that Bioware threw in, uses a blaster rifle instead of a pistol. Makes absolutely zero sense.

Actually....he used a blaster carbine, pretty much a heavy pistol with a rifle stock on it

why is this a big deal for people... your not boba Fett your a bounty hunter.... everything in this game doesnt have to based on what you have seen in a movie...
Kript - SNX - Harby, Yes its a PVE server but honestly there isn't a lot of open world PVP on the other servers anyway.

Thank you!!! I just want to play the game, its good, and people who say that it wouldn't take much to add rifles or carbines just don't know what their asking, the current system is set for pistols, therefore it would have to be redone for rifles and carbines. This game, since it's based a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away REALISM SHOULDN'T MATTER!!!! The story line and gameplay should be more of a concern.

This isn't rocket science. How do you think vanguards do the same damage with a blaster rifle as powertechs do with a pistol?
