Energy impact

The energy given off by this weapon had a similar effect as the zat, stunning the victim into unconsciousness on the initial blast. Repeated use of the weapon could kill the victim. The energy given off by the weapon also appeared similar to that of the zat with its bright blue hue, but instead of surrounding the victim in tongues of energy, the blast appeared more concentrated at the impact site, but still just as debilitating. Daniel Jackson was the first to be seen using the weapon when he stunned Vala's daughter, Adria, and husband, Tomin, in an attempt to capture Adria and rescue Vala. Both targets recovered from the effects, but the amount of time for that recovery is not known. (10.01 "Flesh And Blood Part 3")

The weapon was built in the shape of the Ori symbol and was activated through the movements of the wearer's hand and wrist through a glove. This weapon's technology was of the Ori, who had common roots with the Ancients, and a similarly-designed energy weapon was given by Anubis to his Kull Warriors (Anubis had extensive knowledge of Ancient technology). Although the two weapons seemed to share a common activation mechanism, their purposes were different in that the Kull Warrior's wrist energy weapon was designed to kill rather than to stun. (7.11 "Evolution Part 1", 10.01 "Flesh and Blood Part 3")

The Ori Warrior Weapon appeared to be used when a target was to be taken alive, since the warriors used their lethal staff weapons in most combat situations. The wrist weapon was used in a battle against an unarmed Ba'al (or one of his clones), but his fate from that event was never revealed. To date, none of the members of SG-1 have been stunned with the wrist weapon. (10.10 "The Quest Part 1")
