Weapons can be essential for defeating your foes in Arena. Other than a punch or unarmed attack, you can choose from either ranged or melee weapons of various types, depending on what is available for your character's class. Each weapon can be made from a variety of materials, each of which affects the weapon's ability to hit and the damage it inflicts on your enemies.

Weapon Damage and WeightEdit

Weapons come in both one- and two-handed varieties. An unarmed attack is considered a one-handed weapon. If you choose to use a two-handed weapon, you will not be able to carry a shield.
