The main problem with the staff weapon is it's shape, which resembles a spear over a meter in length. While this allows the weapon to be used as a quarterstaff in melee, it makes it large and cumbersome to fire in cramped conditions as well as being a very bad shape [[ergonomics|ergonomically]] for firing, limiting it's effective range to less than a hundred meters. As ranged weapons of war, they are generally outperformed by the [[Firearm|projectile weaponry]] of the Earth's military. Their flaws been attributed to the fact that they were designed by the Goa'uld primarilly as weapons of terror to keep various populations of primitives under control.

Staff weapons are powered by a liquid [[naquadah]] power cell, so they general don't need to be reloaded during their operation lives.
