A stingbox is a traditional khepri weapon that functions using "metaclockwork". Although the stingbox is difficult for non-khepri to master, in New Crobuzon human members of the militia are known to employ the stingbox as a less-lethal weapon.

Description[]

Stingboxes are, as the name implies, box-shaped weapons that fire two spiked balls attached to chains that remain connected to the weapon. The user grasps one of two handles on the back of the box, using their free hand to adjust the dials and knobs that control the current which flows through the chains.
