As you’ve likely already seen, the Star Wars panel in Hall H at Comic-Con was a special moment for a lot of reasons, a big one being the presence of Harrison Ford.

John Boyega and a bunch of Stormtroopers join them, including one that I guess can’t see out of his helmet, explaining that classic marksmanship:
