How it works

HERO® 2020 launches projectiles filled with PAVA, a synthetic form of capsaicin, known for its intense heat and irritation properties. These projectiles explode on impact, enveloping the target in debilitating irritant. PAVA binds to the receptors that send pain and heat signals to the brain, causing targets to experience intense burning on the skin (as if exposed to scalding heat), difficulty seeing, fits of coughing, and discomfort for up to an hour. There are no long term effects.

Used and trusted by police, security, and military around the world, PAVA stops attackers in their tracks – so you can get to safety.

Quick Swap


PavaBall projectiles explode on impact, engulfing the target in an ultra fine cloud of irritant. Fired at 160-175 FPS from up to 20 feet away, each 3g payload contains 10% PAVA. HERO® 2020 cartridges remain potent for up to 2 years and come in both active and trainer varieties.
