A shooting stun gun, often known by the brand-name Taser, is a handgun-shaped electroshock weapon. The device fires two small dart-like electrodes, which stay connected to the main unit by conductors, to deliver electric current to disrupt voluntary control of muscles, causing "neuromuscular incapacitation". While Axon's "Taser" brand name has become virtually synonymous with shooting stun guns, other companies have produced similar devices (e.g., Raysun X1).
The non-lethal weapon was first featured in the 2010 James Bond video game Blood Stone, during which the Bangkok Police are equipped with the fictional PCP-1000, which resembles Axon's X26 Taser. Another generic shooting stun gun appeared in the 2015 mobile video game James Bond: World of Espionage.
