A slug was a solid projectile used in slugthrowers.
Varying in size, slugs could range from small calibers used in slugthrower pistols, to much larger cannon rounds used by planetary defenses. In smaller calibers, specialty slugs allowed for an incredible array of specialized ammunition, and featured "mercy" slugs made from soft gels for stunning rather than killing, specialized "pyro" slugs which used combustible materials to light targets on fire, explosive detonite and Deuterium rounds, armor piercing rounds made from depleted baradium, and even anti-lightsaber rounds made from cortosis which were capable of shorting out lightsabers.
