An atlatl was a one-handed Gungan throwing device consisting of a short stick with a cradle in one of its ends. It acted as an extension of the arm, enabling a booma to travel at a greater speed and force than possible with the unaided arm. It could also be used without energy ball, as a blunt weapon. When used as a booma-thrower, it had optimal range of 30 meters, and a maximum range of 100 meters.
