A Bowcaster is a energy weapon of Wookiee manufacture.

Technical Specs

The bowcaster is an interesting weapon as it is a combination weapon that combines a high powered crossbow with blaster technology. The bowcaster fires explosive quarrels that are then jacketed by a sheath of blaster energy making the resultant shot look like a elongated blaster bolt when it is fired. The crossbow portion of the weapon requires a large amount of strength to cock and load making the weapon very difficult for non-Wookiees to operate. In fact this part of the weapon is specifically designed by the Wookiees themselves to be only managed by Wookiees exclusively. When the weapon strikes a target is causes a fairly large explosion that is about equivalent to that of a heavy blaster bolt with the same power drain of a pistol or lighter weapon. The most well known version of the weapons are the small hand held version but larger heavy models exist that require a tripod to aim and operate. These larger bowcasters are capable of damaging damaging light to medium range vehicles
