The gel gun is the first weapon recovered by Terran Shield during the Black Sea mission. Although a non-lethal weapon, the gel gun is still a fearsome weapon. It is designed to isolate the enemy by forcing them to avoid the areas covered in the weapon`s gel and thus forcing them to reveal their position.

The weapon may also be used for capturing enemies that have had the misfortune of becoming trapped by the gel. The cartridge launched by the gel gun is propelled only a relative short distance by means of a chemical reaction in the weapon. Once the cartridge slows down, it opens up and released a powder, which when in contact with the surrounding water transforms into a sticky gel, forming a compact, irregular mass, approximately 6 meters in diameter. Any creature that becomes trapped in the gel will find it very difficult to become unstuck, as the gel acts like a spider web.

The weapon is made of carbon fiber and is equipped with two long flexible tentacles, which attach to the bearer’s body through three suction cups. Therefore, after firing it, the user can simply let it drop by his body without needing to put it in a holster (which would affect underwater speed) or into the backpack. The system also allows for the weapon to be readily available for immediate use.

Additionally, the weapon is equipped with spikes, located under the barrel, which contain a powerful neurotoxic venom. Once the poison enters the bloodstream, it causes a several hour-long come and if an antidote is not administered quickly it may cause long-term neurological damage.
