A core bomb was a type of explosive. Qui-Gon Jinn searched for traces of a core bomb by identifying its key components, accellerite, and magnopium ferrocongregate by way of vapor samplers. Malta the Hutt, in a discussion with fellow Hutts Jabba and Embra, commented that he would have handled the Besadii spice raid by arming a "suicidal zealot" with a core bomb and dropping the individual into the clan's Ylesian base of operations from the hull of a freighter.
