A harpoon gun was a hunting implement designed to fire a spearlike missile attached to a long cord. A harpoon gun that was originally intended for elephoth hunting was part of the standard equipment in the Alliance to Restore the Republic. At the Battle of Hoth, Rebel Commander Luke Skywalker used a harpoon gun to lift himself underneath an All Terrain Armored Transport.
