Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- "If you want, you can borrow Sergeant Boom. He makes anyone look intimidating…"
- ―Cut dialogue of Corso Riggs speaking to the smuggler captain
Sergeant Boom-Boom is first mentioned in the 2011 BioWare–LucasArts MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic in two companion conversations between a Smuggler player and Corso Riggs—"The Peace Brigade" and "In Harm's Way." The weapon was originally going to be mentioned by Riggs in "Just Desserts," a Smuggler mission on the planet Corellia, but the section of dialogue that contained the mention was removed from the final game. The cut dialogue has Riggs offer the weapon to the Smuggler and indicates that Sergeant Boom-Boom was an intimidating weapon in his eyes. Riggs also referred to the weapon with a male pronoun and used the nickname "Sergeant Boom" in the removed dialogue. Despite multiple mentions in the game's dialogue, the weapon type of Sergeant Boom-Boom was never specified.
