|Ion stunner pistol|
|Usage and history|
To shutdown electrical devices
An ion stunner pistol was a small weapon, identifiable by a focusing dish on its barrel. When operated, it would fire a short ion flash capable of temporarily disrupting electronic devices. This made it particularly adept at disabling security doors and droids.
It was often used by thugs in Coruscant's underlevels. During robberies, thugs could also use the ion stunner on organic beings to disorient them. The stunner is also popular with the "street smart" on the under-levels of Republic Capital. It was also used on the Avatar Orbital Platform during the Galactic Civil War.
