The Narq-dart Pistol is a non-lethal United Nations Space Command ground firearm.


The weapons was used by the Spartan-IIs during their training on Reach when they were around 12 to 13 years old. The pistol was issued to the Spartan-IIs by Chief Petty Officer Franklin Mendez when they were fighting Tango Company in Capture the Flag.

The weapon uses compressed air to fire a narq-dart capsule. The effective range is 20 meters (60 feet), and on impact, it could "drop a rhino in its tracks." Linda is also noted for replacing the tip of her Sniper Rifle's ammunition with narq-dart capsules, only fatal when shot in the temple or eye. Fhajad was the Spartan who modified the sniper rifle rounds with the Narq-dart capsules.[1]
