This article is about the weapon. You may be looking for the mechanic.

A bola was a type of weapon in use during the Clone Wars and later the Galactic Civil War, consisting of weights attached to an interconnected cord. The weapon was capable of wrapping around an individual's neck and breaking it. The bounty hunter Cad Bane carried a concealed bola on his person. The primitive natives of the planet Verig used a bola-like weapon, a long rope with stones tied to either end, to trip the large Pryss-creatures while hunting. Ewoks employed bolas during the Battle of Endor, where the necessity of a neck joint rendered stormtrooper armor ineffective against them.
