We could give it poison bullets. :) Still, it generally sucks as a weapon, it's only useful because of the stunning effect. I certainly would prefer a normal rifle over poison darts...

This would be awesome... A poison dart that slowly decreases health and ultimately kills the alien. Have a scout run around shooting things and watching them fall one by one randomly in different turns.

Sadly, the engine doesn't support poison mechanics. Heck, even the bleeding effect doesn't work on aliens (which is kinda sad).
But yeah, it would be fun.

I'd love to see green blood pools which let you know which way the wounded sectoid went.

A small update in the first post: fixed research that didn't work correctly (you could research Clip B and Clip C without knowing the Dart Rifle tech at all).

I added a Polish translation. Since the site is temporarily down, I'm putting the update here.

Aldorn, one remark about your french translations : Normally alien is translated "extra-terrestre", everywhere.

Mensch !
You are right, I will take care of that, thanks (you could have corrected yourself, I would not have been offended ;))

If the spear gun graphics from TFTD work in OpenXCOM, so might other things...

Fixed a manufacturing bug. Update in the first post, because the mod site is still down.

Nice, but it' just the harpoon rifle from TFTD  :-X :D no need for other ammo type, i think.  :)

The different is, this one uses stun darts, so you have a stunning ranged weapon before researching the Small Launcher.
Sure, it pretty much sucks as a weapon, but it's better than nothing. :)

And even if it fails as a weapon, civilian market sure as hell would benefit from it - according to the latest survey conducted by the British Scientists on Darts Premier League aficionados... ;)

How about Net Gun used for riot control? It could effectively surprise / immobilize alien for enough time to send party of fellow Stun Rod cavalry?
