Bola carbines were specially-handcrafted weapons that were originally made by members of the Bothan species. A variant of the carbine was known as the Special Ops Bola carbine. They were in use after the Battle of Yavin during the time of the Galactic Civil War. Bola Carbines were known to be quieter than average blasters and always had a purple blaster bolt.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The Bola carbine first appeared in Star Wars Galaxies, a 2003 Massively Multiplayer Online Game video game produced by Sony Online Entertainment. In the game, it could be found randomly as loot on enemies that a player killed. The weapon later received a card in the Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game, a virtual trading card game.
