"Slugthrowers! Wow, ain't heard that sound in ages."
Projectile rifle TFA

A projectile rifle

A slugthrower was any firearm that fired solid projectiles enveloped in energy (known as slugs), as opposed to the energy bolts of a blaster.[1] Slugs could be fired by weapons such as a Cycler rifle,[2] while the Tusken Raiders of Tatooine sometimes used slugthrower rifles[3] of the Tusken Cycler variety.[4]

Aurra Sing also used a Czerka Arms Adventurer model slugthrower rifle.[4]

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.[5]
