Mission Appearances

Perfect Dark: Initial Vector

  • Used by Kimiko and several members of her capture team when they capture Benjamin Able as he tries to escape the Pacific Centre mall in Chapter 3.
  • One of the two weapons Laurent Hayes choses when Joanna infiltrates pharmaDyne and attempts to escape in Chapter 10.

  • Joanna is shot multiple times with Tranq-7s in Chapter 21 as Leland Shaw and several other Hawk mercenaries capture her for Chun Fan.


  • A Tranquilizer did exist seperately from the Psychosis Gun in Perfect Dark, however it was not called the Tranq-7.
  • It is possible that, since the Tranq-7 only appeared in the novels, it was intended to be the model name for the Tranquilizer for Perfect Dark. However there is no visual evidence of this.
