Ya I don't remember him using two pistols. And since the entire coolness of the bounty hunter character DID NOT come from Jango Fett in the prequels, blaster rifles should be an option for the BH.

god i'm so tired of this thread.

ALOT of mercenary skills are based off two pistols. adding the rifle will totally screw that up. they will have to revamp the entire skill tree.

not gonna happen.
Not all Bounty Hunters die screaming like a 4 yr old girl.

Believe it or not the class is called Bounty Hunter, not Boba Fett. If you read anything of the EU you'd know that not all bounty hunters were Boba Fett nor did they all use rifles.

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

Shae Vizla is the archetype character for The Old Republic's Bounty hunter class.

Shae Vizla wore Mandalorian armor of a primarily gray coloration, over a black flight suit. Her full-faced helmet differed from tradition in that it did not feature a T-shaped visor. Vizla made use of a jetpack possessing two individual thrusters that allowed her periods of sustained flight, and owned at least two blasters, including one blaster pistol that fired red bolts of plasma, that she was known to wield with deadly accuracy.

Yeah that bugs me too, a lot of people think Boba was the only hunter in the galaxy, they see him with the Carbine and think thats what all hunters use..
Do do think it would be nice if we could chose the weapon we use tho in game, not just ranged but melee too.

BHs should use sniper rifles. I mean everyone in the galaxy knows you are a BH when you are walking around with a jetpack and blatantly obvious BH looking armor. Gotta be different. Which is why mine wears slave girl outfit.

Yea I agree to that BHs should be able to use all ranged weapons. Its not gamebreaking in any way, just a diffrent skin to the weapon. And it would give the weaponsmiths more work and new clients
