The M26 Taser (Inc TASER X26), is an electronic handgun used by Pirandello Kruger's Pursuit cops. Faith can not pick up the Taser, except when grabbing one from behind a pursuit cop and using it to incapacitate them. It's exclusive to the Pursuit cop trainees, they are only effective in close range, similar to a shotgun. Use of the taser is limited to distance, most notably when Faith cannot be followed, such as high elevation or climbing a pipe. When tased, Faith Connors goes through a similar sensation as she does when shocked by an electrified fence.
The taser is very lazily scripted. The pursuit cop does not replace the taser cartridge despite he has fired it once and there's no animation on the actual taser. It acts like a handgun with electric ammunition with no ammo limit. The said could be the reason as to why it's not available to the player.
- If a player mods in the taser for Faith's use, the taser does no damage.
- There are 2 types of taser spawns in the game, "TaserContent," and, "Taser." TaserContent has no model and uses the default test sound. It does very little damage and acts like a pistol. The "Taser" however is the one used by the NPCs, if the player spawns this weapon, it will do no damage but will work like a taser; buzzes if the trigger is held.
