One common trope in the world of Star Trek—from the original series and beyond—is a phaser being set to “overload” which causes it to self-destruct; essentially turning it into an improvised explosive device. See the video below from the original Star Trek to see what I mean.
So that got me thinking: Can “blasters” in the Star Wars universe similarly “overload” and self-destruct? Based on what we see on-screen in Star Wars, blasters—and similar weapons—behave less like laser weapons which have a core energy source and more like projectile weapons that need to be reloaded with the equivalent of “bullets” it seems. Perhaps some kind of energy storage “battery”—of some sort—is used that discharge blasts into bursts of power?
So could that energy that is used as an ammunition source in a blaster somehow be set to explode outside of it’s standard/expected usage in the weapon itself?
