A Staff weapon is a Goa'uld energy weapon used by the Jaffa.

Overview

The staff weapon produces an energy shot that can be absorbed by certain materials. (SG1: "Need", "Message in a Bottle") It is powered by a Liquid Naquadah cell and is operated by a switch half way up the staff. (SG1: "The Fifth Race", "The Torment of Tantalus", "Children of the Gods") It is capable of being fired in quick succession. (SG1: "The Nox") The staff can leave severe burns on a person and can kill in a single shot. (SG1: "Cor-ai") Intar can be made into Staff weapon form. (SG1: "Rules of Engagement") A version of the staff exists that have a sickle-like blade on the end. (SGO: "Episode 4")

History

Teal'c used a staff weapon to try to destroy an Orb which had produced spikes that anchored it to the gateroom and pinned Jack O'Neill to a wall. The orb absorbed the staff weapons energy. (SG1: "Message in a Bottle") Jack O'Neill took a Liquid Naquadah cell from a Staff weapon to make a Power device when he had the Ancient Repository of Knowledge uploaded into his mind. (SG1: "The Fifth Race") The SGC developed a ceramic polymer insert for their vests which resist the heat from a staff blast and protect the wearer. (SG1: "Heroes, Part 1")
