The EE-3 carbine rifle is a blaster modeled after the E-11 blaster rifle used by Imperial Stormtroopers. The rifle consists of a small handle attached to a long circular barrel. An alternate version of this model features a modified scope mounting and hand grips that run along the length of the barrel.
A blaster carbine is a shortened variant of an already existing weapon, traditionally blaster rifles. They offer distinct advantages from other weapons. First and foremost, they are generally shorter and lighter than their heavier cousins, and allow for more capabilities especially in confined environments; they also have a faster rate of fire than a typical blaster rifle. In addition, carbines are often cheaper to produce than ordinary rifles. Because of its compact design, a blaster carbine can always be used to make an attack of opportunity even if its stock is not folded.
