The Bounty Hunter Code was a set of rules that governed the conduct and behavior of bounty hunters. According to the code bounty hunters do not poach or harm another hunter's target. The Trandoshan bounty hunter Bossk was displeased when two Ranat and Nimbanel bounty hunters that he encountered on the Outer Rim world of Lothal failed to honor the Code and attempted to collect an Imperial bounty on his head.
