ReBoing Catapult

Rather than waste resources on single-use weapons, recycle! Though I doubt that Greenpeace or Amnesty International would acknowledge it.

This catapult would be like a normal catapult, but rather than the traditional seige weapon with projectile weapons, this would have a projectile that would be attached to an elastic bungee cord controlled by a sort of pulley system to prevent the projectile from coming back and hitting your soldiers - either that or keep everyone else far away from it.

       I would've thought that the projectile on a glorified rubber band would be too quick to allow the enemy to replace it with something explosive.

       clever clever. Make the projectile of superball compound.
