Javelin keeps compacted spikes in its clip. when fired they slide into long spikes (as seen at the bottom of the picture). The spikes are fired at the speed of a regular bullet, so they travel very fast and will pass through one or more targets before stopping in a single target. if a target is near a dense wall they will be nailed to it. however the speed can be adjusted so that the spikes will stay in the first target they hit. the spikes are also electrified, so if they do stay in a target they will be shocked to death or partially paralyzed via electric seizures. the spikes also tend to electric trails in their paths.
