Magma spitters were artillery weapons used by Yuuzhan Vong ground troops to defend stationary objects.
A magma spitter fired what appeared to be burning, molten cannonballs. Four of these launchers were assigned to a single fire-support squad.
Behind the scenesEdit
The magma spitter is similar in name to the magma missile and its rock spitter launcher, a capital ship weapons-system that may be a form of Yaret-Kor, but it is not clear if the two devices are related.
Magma missiles are long-range guided missiles, and Star by Star indicates they have a solid rock-like fuselage, but in The New Jedi Order: The Unifying Force, they are described as "gouts", more like magma spitter projectiles.
