- "Slugthrowers! Wow, ain't heard that sound in ages."
A slugthrower was any firearm that fired solid projectiles enveloped in energy (known as slugs), as opposed to the energy bolts of a blaster. Slugs could be fired by weapons such as a Cycler rifle, while the Tusken Raiders of Tatooine sometimes used slugthrower rifles of the Tusken Cycler variety.
Aurra Sing also used a Czerka Arms Adventurer model slugthrower rifle.
Slugthrowers were surprisingly useful against lightsabers, as when a slug made contact with a blade, it simply melted instead of being deflected like a blaster bolt.
