Bota weaponry refers to a kind of infantry weapon used by the Trisalien Military. Trisalien weapons fire a kind of projectile, similar to a paintball, but filled with various chemicals. These “bota” rounds have been encountered in numerous engagements, and are incredibly dangerous. Bota rounds have been filled with acid, neurological compounds, poison, metal fragment, biological agents, napalm, and nerve gas. Because of their unpredictable nature and likelihood of containing illegal substances, bota rounds have been called some of the most lethal and effective projectile weapons conceived.
