"Fires a projectile that administers a voltage capable of temporarily stunning an assailant. Takes approximately 4 seconds to recharge after firing."
Grand Theft Auto V description on Ammu-Nation and Social Club.

The Stun Gun, also known as the Teaser, is a weapon featured in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars and Grand Theft Auto V. The name "Teaser" in Chinatown Wars is a play on real-life stun gun manufacturer Taser. In GTA V, it is manufactured by Coil.

The weapon was originally set to feature in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, but was removed. Its model can still be found in the PS2 game files under stungun.dff and stungun.txd names, assuming a generic bar-like item.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

"Gun shy, but trigger happy? Get excited. Get delirious. Get all the pain compliance you need with this 'non-lethal' weapon."
―Description in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.

In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, the Teaser assumes a design similar to that of a X26 Taser, with a pair of probes that attaches to the target when used. It is considered a melee weapon, but acts much like a handgun.

Grand Theft Auto V

In Grand Theft Auto V, the Stun Gun is remminiscent of a M26 Taser, acquiring a pistol-like design and is placed in the "Pistols" slot of the Weapon Wheel.

In the enhanced version of GTA V, the Coil logo on the handle is visible.


Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

The Teaser launches a small wire which attaches to the target and sends a continuous electric charge into them. It has a power meter, which starts at 100, and is depleted with use; it recharges while idle. If a victim is shocked by it for long enough, they will catch on fire and will eventually die, and the player will immediately gain a one-star Wanted Level.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Stun Gun can shock victims with thousands of volts of electricity and then leave them incapable of getting up, lying on the ground and eventually pulling out a pistol if they have one. Usually, Stun Gun victims do not survive, however in some cases such as street criminals, after being shocked they will get up as if nothing happened. In the first-person, there is an electronic gauge below the sights of the Stun Gun that indicates if it has power or is recharging.

The Stun Gun can also be used as a Drive-By weapon(since it's classed as a handgun), though the low damage, low fire rate and short range limits its usage to just stunning NPCs on the streets with the car parked near them. Despite it being a Stun Gun, it is capable of being used to shoot out non-bulletproof vehicle tires and to kill people.

Because of console's limitations to make the weapon with an infinite ammo clip, files lists it as having an absurdily large ammo size, often impossible to reach by normal means and coded with the "infinite ammo" flag, likely to avoid the character having to "reload" the weapon as with a basic handgun.

First-Person View


Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

  • There are no spawning locations for it, therefore, the Stun Gun can only be acquired from Ammu-Nation for $300 after the mission Pimp His Ride.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • Can be purchased at any Ammu-Nation after the mission Monkey Business, for $100.
  • Trevor is also given one after completing Civil Border Patrol.
  • Can be found during a random event, in which the player is incapacitated by one after approaching a vehicle just south of the Sandy Shores Airfield, and wakes up in their underwear on the train tracks with a train approaching. To obtain it, the player must be playing as Trevor, and activate his special ability when the NPC spawns and zaps the player. Trevor's near-invincibility will leave him unaffected by the stun gun, and allow him to kill the NPC, and grab his stun gun.



  • In all games that currently features this weapon, the description states that it's a non-lethal weapon, which contradicts it's actual performance and real-life counterpart ability, capable of killing people instead of simply stunning them.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • Some people cannot be killed by the stun gun such as muggers in random events or Trevor Philips prior to Franklin meeting him in Three's Company.
  • When Trevor uses his special ability and uses the stun gun, it sounds like a pistol. This is probably an oversight.
  • In one of the earliest updates, the standard ammo counter was replaced by a white bar, which refills again when the weapon charges.
  • If one stuns someone in the head instead of the body, they immediately drop to the ground without struggling, as if was a headshot with a conventional firearm.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • The Stun Gun, along with the Railgun (enhanced version only), are the only weapons that do not appear in Grand Theft Auto Online.
    • However, similar to the Rail Gun, it was possible to obtain it in Grand Theft Auto Online, by creating a Capture game and select the Stun Gun as the enemies' weapon. Although it still can incapacitate NPCs, it is ineffective against players, as the player will only be stunned for a few seconds, and get back up without taking damage. It has since been patched, making it impossible to obtain the Stun Gun in GTA Online at all.
