The ABC Scrambler, or Aural-Biological-Chemical Scrambler, was an antipersonnel sensory disorientation device often employed by bounty hunters.
The ABC Scrambler was a modified version of an Imperial Army Anti-Ordnance EM Probe. It was designed to emit a full spectrum of ultrasonics, biological irritants, and chemical agents over a wide area when fired. These combined effects would disorrient an opponent, effectively producing a massive sensory overload lasting for several minutes.
The device was also used as a defensive countermeasure by some bounty hunters to protect them from guided missiles and other projectiles.
The launch tube typically cost 3,000 credits, while each pod costing 300 credits. The tube could only hold one pod at a time.
