Hawkeye (Clint Barton) is no stranger to Pym Particles, the subatomic particles discovered by Hank Pym that allow for shifts in size, strength, and density. For a time in the Avengers Clint took on the identity of Goliath and used the particles to become a giant. He also has three different tricks that use Pym Particles.
The Reduction Arrow (Pym Particle Arrow I) utilizes the famous size-shifting science to decrease the target’s size and strength. What could go wrong?
Originally, Pym Particles could not be effective non-lethal weapons because they were slightly unstable and could accidentally drive targets insane or kill them outright. The particles have since been stabilized to the point that they can safely be used on an entire prison population.
Pym Particle Arrow II (The Growing Barrage ) creates a swarm of arrows by releasing an entire shrunken volley at once.
Pym Particle Arrow III (The Goliath Arrow ) uses Pym Particles for growth and is used to trigger his transformation into Goliath.
- Type: Non-Lethal
- Frequency: Very Rare
- Effects: Uses Pym Particles to shrink the target
