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.

Fists don't contribute to the carry capacity.
Despite having a reported mass, the game fails to calculate values below 1 and therefore the three weapon groups having a mass of fewer than 1 kg, do not contribute to the player's carry capacity.

MaterialsEdit

 
Metal colors, from Iron to Ebony

Weapons can be made of different metals, which determines their chance to hit, the damage they do, the rate at which they wear out, and their color. Most weapons have no metal specified in their name, these have the damage and chance to hit of steel but the appearance of iron. Deterioration rate is a percentage of the damage dealt by a weapon removed from its condition. Some monsters can only be harmed by weapons of higher tier materials.

OversightsEdit

  • Battle- and war axe sprites are identical to eachother for the same character, all other weapons' appearances differ.
  • The aforementioned battle- and war axe sprites for male characters incorrectly depict a Halberd, a polearm not included in the game.

TriviaEdit

  • Tantos, washikashis and katanas are Japanese daggers, short- and long swords respectively. A sabre is a backsword commonly associated with European cavalry and derives its name from the French sabre. The inclusion of the weapon names listed is somewhat questionable but might have been done be for recognizability by players
