A stun gun was a non-lethal weapon used to incapacitate a victim.


Stun guns were suggested to be at the cutting edge of technology. While having a limited range, they were incredibly effective at disabling any near-by enemy, without causing permanent damage. The gun emitted a high voltage electrical pulse outwards in a narrow trajectory which immediately confused the target's nervous system, rendering him temporarily paralysed and disoriented. (The Game · "Kim Goes Back In")


During Day 1, Nina Myers shocked Jamey Farrell with a stun gun, then used fragments of a coffee mug to slit her wrists and kill her, preventing her from blowing Nina's cover. Later in the day, Jack Bauer obtained a video of this event from archive manager Paul Wilson and used it to prove to George Mason that Nina was a mole. When Ronnie Stark interrogated Jack Bauer on Day 2, he pulled out a stun gun and used it on Jack, causing his heart to stop. ("Day 1: 11:00pm-12:00am", "Day 2: 2:00am-3:00am")
