Catapults were artillery weapon used to launch projectiles against enemy troops over greater distances. 32 years before the Battle of Yavin, the Gungan catapult was used against the Trade Federation droids during the Battle of Naboo, throwing large Boomas to deactivate the droids. Later, catapults were used by the Ewoks to defend against imperial forces such as AT-STs in the Battle of Endor.
