Stealth weapons?

What are the best options for stealthy ranged weapons in the current era? I know stealth blasters don't exist yet, and slugthrowers can be made silent, but that's about the extent of my knowledge on stealth weapons in Star Wars.

I'm not sure how useful a suppressed slugthrower would be against any sort of armour without completely removing its stealthiness, so is there a better choice?

I knew some of the Palace history, but not the bit about Jaade crashing that barge. That's good lore, right there.  :grin:

Oh neat, I stand corrected then.

edit: Do we really know that the two in-game ones are actually stealthy at all? I think they're probably just names unless there's actually some lore on them beyond "they exist."

So one of them is actually very stealthy, the other one is probably the loudest blaster i've ever heard. Good enough tho, i'm going to handwave everything with "stealth blasters" instead of "suppressed slugthrowers" from now on. :P

I also just remembered that dart guns are a thing. One of those might be good if there's a fitting pistol model in the game, they'd be a lot less flashy than blasters. Literally.

You'll want to try out the AD Heavy Blaster series;

Hey, that's actually perfect. Nice find!

Maybe I should get rid of the other 12 blasters I have on my SIS agent before buying another one tho...
