Anything that can be considered a credible weapon for melee/throwing purposes. Remember, though, that absolutely anything that can be picked up can be wielded, and thereby pressed into service as a melee weapon.

Attributes

  • 1 volume is about the size of fist, maybe a little smaller or larger.
  • A weapon's speed is calculated from its volume and weight, according to the formula:
moves per attack = 65 + (4 x weapon's volume) + (2 x weapon's weight), with a penalty the less stamina you have.

Item is considered two-handed if its weight divided by 113 is 4 times more that current character's strength, or if it has the ALWAYS_TWOHAND flag. All non-pistol firearms are two-handed, regardless of their other attributes.

Some weapons can have reach attacks.

Missing and You

Some weapons, the heavier the more likely, cause you to stumble when you miss. You can recognize a stumble by the "You miss and stumble with the momentum." or, "You swing wildly and miss." messages. The former is a stumble that adds more than 60 time units, and the latter is between 10 and 60 time units. The Deft trait can prevent stumbles. The time added by a stumble is capped at heavy weapons, it will never by more than 60.

Item Browser

The Item Browser has an index of some items that could be used as Melee weapons.

List of weapons
