The hand taser is a primary weapon for stealth missions in Syphon Filter 2. It can be used in Mackenzie Air Force Base Interior and Exterior, PHARCOM Expo Centre, Morgan, Moscow Club 32, Volkov Park, Gregorov, Aljir Prison Break-In and Aljir Prison Escape. Since it has a very short effective range, players are required to blindside alert victims to properly use it. It is a must to use it on collateral targets. Unlike the air taser, which can either stun or kill victims, it is impossible to use lethal force with it.
