|| A length of wood with a reinforced sling at one end, able to fire projectiles at high velocity. It deals more damage when launching purpose-made ammunition, rather than stones found on the floor.
This weapon falls into the 'Slings' category. It is a one-handed weapon.
The fustibalus is a significantly more powerful option than a hunting sling, requiring slightly more skill and time per shot, but dealing much more damage per hit. Although less devastating than its two-handed bow and crossbow counterparts, they require much less skill to reach min-delay, and a well-enchanted fustibalus can still be an effective and deadly end-game weapon. Base damage is 12 when firing sling bullets. Even so, be aware that it may still have some difficulty taking down hell sentinels and other late-game high-AC opponents.
