personally i think the pistol is fine for most classes. like when im snipin and a stormtrooper runs at me i switch to the pistol and gun em' down and never have to think about runnin out of ammo.
now the sniper rifle is another story, for the empire and the clones it only has one stage of zoom which is not a sniper rifle its a blaster with 2x zoom. and it needs at least 10 rounds not just 5. if it were a guaranteed one shot kill 5 would be ok, but when u gotta shot somebody in the head 2 or three time to kill'em that is b.s.
oh yah and the emp launcher for the clone jet trooper needs a lot more ammo than 8 shots and a bigger clip than 2, at least 4.
And thats all I have to say about that.
