Description

Stingboxes are large tazer guns that have been known to potentially kill their targets. They are powered by a metaclockwork electricity generator and have two spiked barbs that are attached to the engine by chains. An average human would be required to wear sholder straps to operate a stingbox, while Cactacea are large enough to carry the weapon with their hands. 

"Stingboxes are frequently used as riot control weapons in Bas-Lag's largest city, New Crobuzon."
