Ion pulses could also be triggered without a warhead, as R2-D2 caused an ion pulse to occur at Sunspot Prison between 0 and 1 ABY using the facility's own systems, knocking out power.
Following the Battle of Endor and the death of Emperor Palpatine in 4 ABY, Operation: Cinder, a contingency order issued posthumously by Palpatine to render worlds inhospitable in the event of his death, was carried out on Naboo. During the ensuing battle, the pulse was activated by the Rebel Alliance, disabling all Imperial weapons and forcing them to surrender to the rebel forces present.
