Note: Despite the description, play tests found no evidence that it can pin necromorphs, either alive or after they're dead.
There is no blueprint for this weapon.
The Skewer has a higher rate of fire and less damage per shot (still sufficient to remove any Necromorph limb with one hit on Hard difficulty) than the Javelin Gun.
The upper tool of the Skewer consists of a Telemetry Spike with a Skewer Tip.
The Skewer does not come with a lower tool.

- The Skewer appears in Dead Space 3 as part of the Slim Jim Every Code Wins promotion, along with the Broadbow Arc Cutter and the EL1 Rapido.
- It is red and yellow, the Slim Jim colors.
