The Orbital Strike is a single-shot sniper rifle that fires a beacon at a remote target. After five seconds, a green ion cannon beam fires, from a ship in space, at the beacon causing huge destruction to infantry. However if someone was able to destroy the beacon in the five seconds, the strike would be averted. In Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron the weapon costs 20 credits. In some versions of the game the weapon works indoors and there is no beacon to destroy.
