Summary::A hypo pistol is a hypodermic administering and delivery system for various drugs. It contains a needle placement and hand-activated trigger. Hypo pistols can load small cartridges called hypo canisters, which deplete with three uses. An Exotic Weapon Proficiency feat can make you proficient in using the hypo pistol as a weapon. Despite the name, a hypo pistol does not shoot its payload at range. Attacking with a hypo pistol is a melee attack. The pistol must be pressed to the target's body before the contents can be injected with a pull of the trigger. Value 300 gp; weight 3 lb.
