|Behind the scenes|
The pikes are solid and have energy crackling at the tip. When they come in contact with something, they administer a shock and flash bright orange for a moment before returning to their original dark color.
In TRON: Uprising, stun pikes were shown to be generated from a baton and bore heavy resemblance to a staff. Indeed, the only visible difference between the two was the crackling energy and bright flash of a stun pike.
