The Zap Gun is a type of weapon item that can be bought from the Store. It is one of the only weapon items that can be purchased in the game. When paired with a teammate carrying a shovel, it is a deadly combo that can kill nearly all killable monsters in the game. It is quite heavy coming in at 11 lb or pounds in the game, but it is very worth it carrying one around with you. It is highly advisable to take one of these into the Tier 2 or Intermediate and Tier 3 or Hard moons in the game.

However, it is not necessary to bring it into the Tier 1 or Easy moons in the game because the monsters in these moons are easy to avoid. Keep in mind that the gun is an item that needs to be charged at the Charging Station on the Ship. This means it has a limited battery life that is depleted depending on how much you are using it. Using the stun gun definitely has a learning curve to it but once you get a hang of it, it can help you to escape many deadly monsters like the Bracken and even the Jester.
