A static pike.

The Geonosian static pike, also known as the picador's spear, was a melee weapon produced by Gordarl Weaponsmiths on Geonosis. The static pike was an advanced version of the Geonosian spear, and appeared similar to the force pikes of the Jedi Civil War era, and the electropoles wielded by Gungan warriors on Naboo.

The static pike was developed for use by Geonosian picadors, to control creatures and prisoners in gladiatorial arenas such as the Petranaki arena of the Stalgasin hive. The original Geonosian spear was an effective means of herding beasts, but with the static pike, Gordarl added an electrically charged tip and elongated the weapon to twice the length of the spear. The charged tip could be set to deliver shocks to a creature's nervous system, or to kill them outright. An anodized shaft and insulated grip ensured the picadors themselves were not accidentally shocked by their own weapons.
