A holopuck, also known as a holographic puck, or referred to as a bounty puck, was a small, simple holographic device utilized by the Bounty Hunters' Guild that identified a quarry each. Holopucks listed the details of a bounty: the amount of of credits offered, the circumstances (or crimes) that warranted the bounty, the operational jurisdiction allowed for pursuit, and the specific conditions required to collect.
Displaying a holographic image of the quarry accompanied by a name and the bounty payout, a puck provided information that when combined with the use of a tracking fob, allowed Guild members to hunt their quarry to the edge of the galaxy. In 9 ABY,[source?] the Guild on Nevarro handed pucks out to their members. By taking the puck, the hunter accepted the bounty.
