HistoryEdit

"Then me and Sergeant Boom-Boom'll be right there with you, Captain."
―Corso Riggs, to the smuggler captain[src]

The Human mercenary Corso Riggs gave the name Sergeant Boom-Boom to one of the weapons he owned by the end of the Cold War, fought between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. Riggs was in possession of the weapon while he served with the crew of a smuggler captain[2] who worked for the Republic as a privateer beginning[3] in 3642 BBY[1] and into the following Galactic War.[4] Sergeant Boom-Boom was the weapon that Riggs favored using against Imperial opponents by the time the smuggler captain was working as a Republic privateer.[5]

Behind the scenesEdit

"If you want, you can borrow Sergeant Boom. He makes anyone look intimidating…"
―Cut dialogue of Corso Riggs speaking to the smuggler captain[src]

Sergeant Boom-Boom is first mentioned in the 2011 BioWareLucasArts MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic in two companion conversations between a Smuggler player and Corso Riggs—"The Peace Brigade"[2] and "In Harm's Way."[5] The weapon was originally going to be mentioned by Riggs in "Just Desserts," a Smuggler mission on the planet Corellia, but the section of dialogue that contained the mention was removed from the final game. The cut dialogue has Riggs offer the weapon to the Smuggler and indicates that Sergeant Boom-Boom was an intimidating weapon in his eyes. Riggs also referred to the weapon with a male pronoun and used the nickname "Sergeant Boom" in the removed dialogue.[6] Despite multiple mentions in the game's dialogue, the weapon type of Sergeant Boom-Boom was never specified.[7]
