Force pike was the name of several similar weapons that evolved indepedently between races and civilizations throughout the galaxy.

The tip of the pole was a vibro-edged head with a stun module that could knock a full-grown Wookiee unconscious using a concentrated nerve impulse similar to that featured in the stun setting of a blaster rifle. The impulse worked by overloading the central nervous system, effectively knocking the victim unconscious. When the vibro-edge was set to maximum it could rip through steel bulkheads and easily dismember most organic beings. The control settings and power generator were located at the pike's grip.

It should be noted that force pikes were not related to the Force.

Usage

Rebel soldier Char'Shen Larcuna

Force pikes were first introduced in the Begali Uprising. Sith Assassins used force pikes during the Dark Wars to hunt Jedi across the galaxy. They were also utilized by Atris's Echani handmaidens.

They were generally used by Senate Guards and Imperial Royal Guards. The meter-long pike was used to keep any person away from important figures. But most of all it was a status weapon that in practice was hardly used. However, during General Grievous's capture of Chancellor Palpatine, his guards used their force pikes to disable two of the general's bodyguards.

While most prominently displayed by the Emperor's Royal Guards, who carried the popular SoroSuub Corporation Controller FP model, force pikes were employed by a wide variety of planetary militias and police forces, including Nirama's public asteroid security forces[1]. They were excellent for crowd control. Force pikes were often employed during boarding actions because they allowed attackers to slice through bulkheads and airlocks and could be operated in small hallways.
