HN piston-propelled needle is a type of ammunition that was to appear in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. It also featured in the Van Buren tech demo game files.


They were initially loaded with sedatives and tranquilizers, which would cause a target to take much more fatigue damage than from a regular attack.
