Big Boomers

Details

Description

The Gungans have adapted their unique organic technology to the defense of their underwater homes and their sacred lands. They employed a variety of muscle-powered weaponry to deliver a specialized payload to their targets. Using the plasmic energy found deep in Naboo's porous crust, the Gungans have crafted a spherical grenade-type weapon they call a "booma," or boomer. These grenades are either thrown by hand, sling, atalatl, cesta or catapult. When they hit their target, their protective shells burst, releasing the liquid-like plasma and a powerful electric shock.

In addition to their boomers, Gungans also carry spears and lances called electropoles. This polearms can be used as missile weapons, or can be used as contact weapons that deliver an electric jolt. For defensive purposes, the Gungans have adapted their hydrostatic bubble technology to form hand-held personal shields. These ovoid frames project a defensive screen of shield energy capable of deflecting blaster bolts back at the firer.

Jar Jar Binks

Few battlefield generals would ever recommend Jar Jar Binks' perpetually slippery grasp and uncoordinated balance be let anywhere near Gungan weaponry. During the Battle of Naboo, however, Jar Jar was a general. Thankfully, his inadvertent destructive potential remained squarely aimed at battle droids.
