HistoryEdit

The Tangle Gun was developed during the early days of Emperor Palpatine's rule, in response to a requirement for a method of crowd control which was more 'humane' and less lethal than blaster fire. The weapon was taken out of service when the standard policy of the Empire switched from seduction to brute force. [2]
