Disruption gloves, also known as disruptor gloves, were a rare type of glove in use during a series of conflicts fought between the remnants of the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic known as the Dark Wars. During unarmed combat, the gloves allowed a user to penetrate many types of defenses, including deflector shields.
Disruption gloves, also called disruptor gloves, were designed to help an individual get through various defenses during unarmed combat by causing additional damage. Like disruptor weapons of their time, the gloves caused damage that penetrated deflector shields. The gloves were a light blue color on the outside and dark brown on the inside.
Although they were quite rare, disruption gloves were in use soon after the Jedi Civil War, during a series of conflicts known as the Dark Wars which were fought between the remnants of the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic. Around the year 3951 BBY, disruption gloves could sell for around 26,000 credits.
Behind the scenes
The disruption gloves first appeared in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, a 2004 video game released by Obsidian Entertainment. In The Sith Lords, the gloves were a rare item that could be found in randomly determined locations throughout the game, and because of this, the player was not guaranteed to find them every time through the game. The gloves granted a very large shield-penetrating damage bonus to unarmed attacks. They also received an entry in Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords: Prima Official Game Guide by Prima Games although they were referred to as "disruptor gloves."
