The Zat’nik’tel, nicknamed Zat or Zat gun by Colonel Jack O’Neill, is a handheld weapon used by the Goa’uld and their Jaffa. It is in the shape of a serpent and was first encountered by SG-1 on Apophis’s Ha’tak.
Its energy output, in the form of blue electrical energy, is less powerful than that of a Staff weapon. It’s an extremely efficient weapon and is used extensively by the Goa’uld, Tok’ra, Jaffa and Tau’ri.
