“Yeah, it’s how S.H.I.E.L.D. gets rid of its dangerous technology.”
―John Garrett and Grant Ward

Purpose of the Slingshot

“We shot a lot of empty rockets into space. And maybe every once in a while they put a monkey in one for kicks. You really think Fury would give away all these goodies?”
―Grant Ward and John Garrett

―Phil Coulson

Phil Coulson and his team arrived at the Slingshot in holy order to destroy a 0-8-4 line up in Peru, secured after thwarting a hijack of the Bus made by Camilla Reyes and a police squad of Peruvia soldiers with the Policia Militar del Perú. Upon arriving, Coulson checked the status of his personal car Lola while a crew of mechanics started repairing the price done on the Bus. Skye asked why they took all the trouble to obtain the peruvian 0-8-4 if they were going to destroy it, but Coulson assured that it was excessively dangerous for anyone to have, so that was the better solution.

Coulson, satisfied for their teamwork, congratulated them as the rocket lifted off. Skye received an code message from the Rising Tide asking about her condition, and she plainly answered that she was in. [ 1 ]

“Say it back to me.”
“Deepest level of the Fridge, unmarked vault, no access granted.”
“And no recorded entry. I don’t want it listed. I don’t want it flagged for the Slingshot.”
―Phil Coulson and Tyler

Phil Coulson did not trust that the Gravitonium could be destroyed using the Slingshot, and he did not want to take the risk of not being marked for end and alternatively experimented on, so following its recovery in Malta, the bunch of Gravitonium was contained at the deepest floor of the Fridge, in a secret and unmarked vault.
