I call upon thee the brotherhood (Nerds) of Star Wars. Is there any weapon in the Star Wars Universe that shoots physical ammunition? (besides missiles and such)
yep! there are guns that fire actual physical rounds, called slugthrowers in the lore. they’re considered…
Wookiee’s bowcasters also shoot a chunk of metal encased in energy so yea there is that as well. Lemmi see if I can find more.
oh shoot dagnab how could I forget the bowcasters!! nerd card revoked how can I live with myself
Technically The carbonite gun is physical as well, and maybe the Vac blades but as otter-cha0s stated slug throwers are the main ones, followed by bow casters, mini-rocket launchers, and then by the weirder ones…I can probably find more, was there a particular kind of weapon you were wondering about?
I think they’re just looking for ‘projectile weaponry that is not a missile launcher’. In which case I suggest they let their imagination run wild and just. Make their own. Who says there isn’t a gun that shoots knives?? There’s a jedi Triceretops with a beard, Luke Skywalker once got eaten by a block of jello with scales, a space station in the middle of a black hole cluster, fucking sentient planets this is Star Wars THERE ARE NO RULES
And this is why I tell people that Star Wars isn’t really Sci-Fi. It is but it isn’t. It’s more like Science Fantasy. There are so many fantastical elements to this universe, so many unexplainables, so much mystical mysticness that we just kinda punt the science out the window. It’s a space opera, y’all, don’t come here for the science.
We just got space travel and lasers and robots n’ shit.
We do what we want.
