A shot in pétanque and similar games where the thrown boule is lobbed onto another boule. The effect is that the target boule is knocked away and the thrown boule stops immediately after hitting the target boule, since all of the thrown boule's kinetic energy is transferred to the target boule.
Naturally, pulling this off requires some precision from the thrower, but prevents the boule from rolling an unpredictable distance after touchdown.
