    The Tusken Cycler and Slugthrower are two weapons not too commonly used [the slugthrower doubly so.]

    I have an idea to change this.

    You see, the Tusken Rifles and Slugthrowers are both Slugthrowers, meaning they act almost like our conventional firearms, [you know, cartridges], and fire solid projectiles.

    A Jedi cannot block a solid projectile with a lightsaber, only melt it and destroy the slug. Stormtrooper armor was made to be impervious to slugs, and armor could be an additional item decrease slugthrower [not tusken cycler's] damage received, or even mitigate it altogether.

    However, if cortosis, a rare material is added to the game, slugthrowers could be made to fire cortosis slugs.
    Cortosis is a unique material which is capable of shorting out lightsaber blades.
    If cortosis slugs were added, they could be a capable jedi-killing weapon made exclusively for bounty hunters.

    Tl;DR Tuskens and Slugthrowers shouldn't be blockable for lore reasons.
    [Tuskens could use a new sound too, something described like this quote by Huff Darklighter. "We always know when the Tusken Raiders are on a killing spree. We can hear their rifles cracking across the desert like lightning strikes."]

    I think this is a bad idea , There are already incredibly op weapons in the game that can bypass block (Flamethrower and rpg) Adding this cortosis slug means 2 things: Tusken snipers can shoot through blocks making it extremely powerful , It is too easy to get because all you have to do is force pull a tusken

    If you like the slugthrower idea as a whole, with the exception of cortosis, please vote option 5.

    Lightsaber is hard enough to use against gun spammers as it is.

    Slugthrower already isn't reflected, and while I can see the tusken being unable to block, it makes it kind of stupid that you can spam someone with a sniper until their block breaks.
