The Dart Gun is a low powered one-handed personal firearm that stores and fires 12 darts. It will function in any environment.

The Dart Gun is cheap and features a one handed grip and is the fastest Snap fire weapon. Unfortunately it has one severe weakness: very low damage. Even physically weak aliens like the Aquatoids will require a number of rounds before they succumb to the darts.

Though quite ineffective for most combat purposes, the Dart Gun is a useful weapon for training firing accuracy and reactions due to its low stopping power. The Dart Gun can also be utilised as an early alternative to the Thermal Tazer for stunning aliens. While it still risks killing the subject, the lower damage allows for a more controlled application of damage as well as weapon inflicted Stun damage.

This weapon appears in Terror from the Deep. For the UFO: Enemy Unknown equivalent, refer to the Pistol.
