The Stinger is a weapon found in Unreal and Unreal Championship 2. A similar version is also seen in Unreal Tournament 3. It was originally designed to be a mining tool by the Liandri Mining Corporation. The Stinger launches small tarydium shards to carve away unwanted rock. It was discovered to be a decent offensive device and was weaponized. Primary fire immediately causes the gun to fire Tarydium shards at a quick rate. Secondary fire makes the Stinger shoot out loads of shards at a time, but has a slow rate of fire.
