In an episode of Stargate Atlantis, I recall a battle where a wraith stunner pistol was shot and destroyed/disabled. I seem to recall it was Sheppard who was using it at the time, but I could be mistaken.

Does anyone recall in which episode this occurred? I think this may have been the only time a stunner pistol was damaged like this.

Here is a photo of the damaged stunner:

  • Yes, that's where I saw it. And I couldn't remember what episode it was from.

  • This is an interesting question. IIRC, the larger wraith rifles were also stunners. Not sure if they had a lethal mode that could punch a hole into stuff like that... Definitely wasn't P90 fire and replicator pistols were also stunners. Must've been wraith weapon fire, which doesn't narrow it much at all...

  • From my dim recollection, the way the scene played out was that the team was pinned down and trying to escape from somewhere, they were using stunners, and a wraith zapped zapped the pistol stunner sheppard was using.

    The damage is what I might expect to see from Ronan's gun. @ForceFlow ot, have I seen you around in the past on the Sitepoint forums? Nov 14, 2021 at 9:07

I ended up watching the series again and found the damaged stunner in Season 4, Episode 5, "Travelers"

Larrin picks up the stunner from the dead wraith that Sheppard killed and discovers that it was damaged.

Additionally, stunner pistols weren't introduced until the first episode of Season 2.
