| A piece of cloth and leather for launching stones. Does more damage when launching purpose-made projectiles, rather than rocks found on the floor. Adequate for hunting small game, like rabbits or goblins.
"And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sank into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth."
-KJV Bible, 1 Samuel 17:49.
This weapon falls into the 'Slings' category. It is a one-handed weapon.
Hunting slings are one-handed ranged weapons. They accept both stones and sling bullets as ammunition, but using sling bullets will increase your damage significantly. Although weaker than bows or crossbows, they only require one hand, making them a good secondary weapon option for characters using shields. Most sling-users will want to upgrade to a greatsling at some point for superior damage while remaining one-handed.
