Also known as the Frontier Hunter’s Sniper Rifle, the MT-211 is a mid-sized blaster sniper-rifle which was originally marketed towards police and security forces alongside its slightly smaller blaster rifle cousin.
The MT-211 was one of the few sniper weapons that incorporated a stun-feature which could be used at long range to subdue targets. This stun feature used the conductive barrel braces to energize a low-powered, high-velocity blaster bolt with electrical energy. Unlike traditional stun weaponry this stun-blaster bolt hybrid could not incapacitate individuals wearing armor.
Seeing only middling success in the security sector this weapon became more popular among poachers and outdoorsmen who appreciated the weapon's light weight and sturdiness in the field.
