"An energy slingshot. Cute."
Bossk to Ezra Bridger[src]

An energy slingshot was a small wrist-mounted weapon that fired non-lethal energy projectiles. They were legal on most planets throughout the galaxy. Ezra Bridger, a teenage orphan from Lothal, used an energy slingshot.

Overview[edit | edit source]

A wrist-mounted device favored by pranksters and the youth of many species, the energy slingshot was used by pointing the device at a target and pulling back on an energized cup. When released, the cup launched a disorienting shock-burst over a short distance. A non-lethal tool, it was legal to possess on most worlds throughout the galaxy.[3] Unlike stun blaster bolts, the slingshot projectiles were subject to gravitation, and traveled in a parabolic arc.[4]

The slingshots could be modified to send out light only in order to trigger sensors.[5]

History[edit | edit source]

Prior to 18 BBY,[6] the Graf family used modified slingshots in a game. Milo Graf later watched a hologram of the game after his parents were captured by the Galactic Empire.[5]

Around 5 BBY,[7] the Lothal orphan Ezra Bridger possessed a slingshot which he used during the time of the early rebellion against the Galactic Empire[8] before he built his own Jedi lightsaber.[4] Bridger continued to wear the slingshot on his left wrist until the time between the Siege of Lothal and a mission to Seelos.[9]
