A Pen Gun is a projectile weapon disguised as a fountain pen. Dart-firing pen guns appear in the video-games 007: Nightfire (2002) and 007 Legends (2012). While not featured in an official James Bond film, a rocket-firing pen gun appeared in the unofficial James Bond film Never Say Never Again (1983).
The pen gun is a dart gun disguised as a fountain pen. It appears in the 2012 video game 007 Legends and is used to take down and distract enemies throughout the game.
Unlike the pen featured in Nightfire, the weapon featured in 007 Legends can be equipped with three different modes of fire by swapping out and replacing ammunition cartridges. By loading a tranquilizer cartridge in to the pen, the player can shoot an enemy, to silently and non-lethally, take him down. The second mode, a "shock dart", generates an electrical shockwave on impact. Whilst not silent like the tranquiliser, the weapon incapacitates targets within the vicinity of the blast, making it well suited for taking down multiple opponents. The third cartridge is a "distraction dart" capable of generating a noise on impact, drawing the attention of a nearby guard to investigate the source of the noise.
In the unofficial James Bond film Never Say Never Again (1983), 007 is equipped with a Mont Blanc 149 fountain pen emblazoned with a Union Jack flag on the barrel. The pen's nib is actually an explosive rocket. Q notes that the weapon is not perfected yet, leading to a delayed explosion when used in the field. The villainess Fatima Blush (Barbara Carrera) meets her demise on the end of a rocket propelled by the MB 149 shooting pen, leaving only a pair of smoking spike heels behind.
