    Profession Overview

    Want to become a Stormtrooper and wield an E11? Maybe you want to destroy entire groups of enemies at once? Or be on the frontline and watch your enemy in the eyes as you blast a few holes in them? If the answer is yes, then Carbineer is for you. If the answer is no, then visit the Rifleman page.

    Single Target Abilities

    • Leg shot - causes a targeted hit on opponents legs, but has a slight accuracy penalty. Improved Leg Shot has increased damage and reduced accuracy penalty.
    • Rapid Fire - this attack has a large damage capability. Improved and Advanced versions increase the damage that can be done.
    • Charge Shot - allows you to knock down an opponent. Improved Charge Shot has a higher chance of knocking down an opponent.
    • Crippling Shot - reduces the movement speed of the opponent. Improved version of this ability increases the duration of movement reduction (up to 20 seconds). Enemies that move away from you will have their normal speed.

    Area Abilities

    • Full Auto Area - this ranged attack can hit multiple targets in a cone in front of you. Improved version increases the damage that can be done. This ability requires an automatic weapon to execute.
    • Scatter Shot - small cone that deals more damage than Full Auto Area, but requires you to be at least within 32m of the target. Improved version increases the damage that can be done.
    • Suppression Fire - allows you to reduce movement of multiple opponents within a cone in front of you. Improved and Advanced versions of this attack increases the size of the cone affected by the ability. Enemies that move away from you will have their normal speed.

    Possible Profession Combinations

    • Carbineer/Bounty Hunter/4xxx Combat Medic - good for solo play. With this template you will have a lot of strong abilities to use, can heal yourself and make good money.
    • Carbineer/Squad Leader/4xxx Combat Medic - great for group content, allows you to deal damage while also providing buffs for your group members as well as healing them. However, it is heavily action dependant, make sure to purchase appropriate foods (attachements for your armor can also help, see Attributes for more).


    Players who have mastered Carbineer profession can wear Battle armor. Battle armor by itself provides equal kinetic and energy protection. I recommend you to check Armorsmith page for more information.

    A few sets worth mentioning:​

    • Katarn Armor - great set for new players and those who cannot afford other armor. See this quest for more information. Armor from Morts quest can be worn by Wookies and Ithorians.
    • Bone/Marauder/Padded/Ithorian Defender/Kashyyykian Black Mountain - basic battle armor sets. They should be easily accessible and affordable.
    • R.I.S. - while being expensive, it can be enhanced with feathers and scales for a huge health bonus(700 max), it also has high durability(around 100,000). This armor set is considered to be one of the best you can get.
