Thrown Weapons

< previousweaponsnext >

Thrown weapons are weapons designed to be hurled to be effective. Typically, they do not do as much damage as melee weapons, as the weight and the force with which they are thrown are sometimes not enough to penetrate the heavier armors. Some weapons, like the throwing net, however, are more effective against certain heavier armors, as the target may not be able to maneuver enough to evade.

While one could try to hurl anything (a chair, a rock or even fruit), few items prove themselves useful as tried and tested throwing weapons.
