The TASER X26 CEW (Conducted Electrical Weapon) is an electroshock weapon sold by Taser International for law enforcement officers. It uses electrical current to disrupt voluntary control of muscles. Tasers were introduced as non-lethal weapons to be used by police to subdue fleeing, belligerent, or potentially dangerous people, who would have otherwise been subjected to more lethal weapons such as a firearm.
The X26 appears in Battlefield Hardline as the T62 CEW.
— In-game description
The T62 CEW is a weapon featured in Battlefield Hardline. The T62 is a purchasable all class sidearm, and is capable of performing a non-lethal takedown from a short distance. A successful hit will incapacitate the enemy a few seconds later, though this gives the enemy time to fire extra shots before the takedown. Since the T62 has a very short range and low projectile velocity, however, it makes an accurate shot potentially difficult. The player also has to reload after each shot. The weapon is most effective when used in melee range against 1-2 enemies.
The T62 is equiped with a Mini red dot sight which uses a large empty circle as a reticle instead of a red dot. Two green dots will appear in the circle, however, when the T62 is aimed at an enemy, signaling that it is ready to be fired.
Upon successfully hitting an enemy, the enemy player will have an electric particle effect on them, and will be completely incapacitated, resulting in a Non-Lethal Takedown. The player can interrogate them to reveal enemy locations. The incapacitated enemy is effectively "killed", and will disappear in about 15 seconds, whether or not they are interrogated.
- In the June Beta, the T62 would only immobilize an enemy for five seconds, during which the player would have to perform a Handcuff Takedown on the enemy to "kill" him and enable interrogation. This was changed at a later point, making the T62 more reliable.
- After the June Beta, the T62 was given a modified Mini sight as opposed to its iron sights.
- Using the T62 in different ways will yield interesting results. Shooting someone who's climbing a ladder will yield a kill, however it will not count as a Non-Lethal Takedown and the victim may not be interrogated. Shooting someone who's sitting inside a vehicle will not do any damage at all, however a hitmarker will still appear.
