A projectile rifle

Slugthrowers, also referred to as firearms, were any projectile weapon that fired solid projectiles enveloped in energy (known as slugs), as opposed to the energy bolts of a blaster.[1] Slugs could be fired by weapons such as the scatter gun, or the Cycler rifle[2] which was sometimes used by the Tusken Raiders of Tatooine.[3][4]

The inhabitants of Carnelion IV, the Open and Closed, used a variety of slugthrower weapons in their war against each other, some mounted on large bipedal walkers.[5]

Aurra Sing also used a Czerka Arms Adventurer model slugthrower rifle.[4]

Slugthrowers were surprisingly useful against lightsabers, as when a slug made contact with a blade, it simply melted instead of being deflected like a blaster bolt. These melted embers could then fly toward the face or hands of the lightsaber user, and harm them if they were not careful.[6]
